A group of Malaysian students in the UK recreated the chap fan eating experience in their dormitory

In a post on the Chinese social media platform Xiaohongshu, user 冰美式脑袋 shared that they missed the familiar experience of eating economy rice back home.

In the video, the user showed how a group of her friends got together to prepare nine different dishes and had fun serving themselves following the typical system at a chap fan shop.

"You have to line up! Take rice, choose your dishes, then let aunty calculate the price! Handsome boys and pretty girls get a discount!" reads the hilarious caption of her video.

One of her friends even pretends to be a chap fan aunty calculating the cost of a customer's plate of food

"Oh, you ah? Handsome boy, okay lah. Five ringgit only," he says while looking at his friend's food.

The video has received a lot of laughs, with many Malaysians praising them for the spot-on cooking and for using the iconic red plates typically found at chap fan shops

"That looks so good! You guys can open a shop now," said a Xiaohongshu user.
