"Banana Leaf Rice, No Curry" And 16 More Weird Orders Malaysians Have Actually Made IRL
Malaysians love our food more than anything else, but some of us have some... unusual requests when ordering:
1. "Nasi lemak, no sambal"
Not syok lah without the sambal!
2. "Ice lemon tea, no ice"
Err... just order it suam?
3. "Hawaiian pizza, no pineapple"
What's the point of ordering a Hawaiian pizza if you're going to remove the thing that makes it Hawaiian?
4. "Ais kacang tanpa kacang"
Bye bye yummy toppings!
5. "Cendol kosong"
But... but... what's the point?
6. "Banana leaf rice, no curry"
If you don't banjir your banana leaf rice with curry, you're not doing it right.
7. "Dry wantan mee, no sauce"
Where got flavour liddat?
8. "Prawn mee, no prawn"
Poor prawns, kena halau.
9. "Ramly burger, patty only"
Haiyo, liddis oso can!
10. "Dhal, tambah gula"
We all have fond memories of eating roti canai with sugar as a kid, but mixing sugar into the dahl is just taking it too far man.
11. "Condensed milk + hot water"
We can't even imagine what this would taste like...
12. "Nasi lemak, no lemak"
Basically, this means replacing the coconut rice with plain white rice. Why would you disgrace our national dish like this guys, WHYYYY?!
13. "Limau + kicap"
Okaylah, this one can give chance a bit cause it's supposedly a good home remedy for coughs.
14. "Bandung dinosaur" (Sirap bandung topped with Milo powder)
15. "Raw egg + sugar"
What happened to good old fashioned kopitiam style eggs? :(
16. "Onion rings, no onion"
It's definitely not "batter" than normal onion rings, k.
17. "Char kuey teow kosong"
Just know that all Penangites are collectively plotting your murder.
