This genius creation sees the pairing of creamy coconut pudding with berry sambal, topped with nasi lemak essentials: cucumber, anchovies, and peanuts!

Curious to see how it tastes like? Drop by Ecole P in Damansara Uptown!

2. Hash browns + maple syrup

If drizzling maple syrups over pancakes is a little too mainstream for you, try swapping them for hash browns instead!

You can also try this interesting blend of flavours in burger form at myBurgerLab.

3. Teh tarik + white coffee

One favourite Malaysian flavour in your cup is already a God-sent gift, imagine TWO of the nation's favourite drinks blended into one!

The best part? This ultimate cham drink is sweetened with stevia, making it a low-calorie guilt-free indulgence and each sachet is perfect for on-the-go-convenience. Grabbing a pack is very likely to result in you becoming the office pantry hero so cham on over!

4. Banana cake + peanut butter

Have you tried The King? Magic happens when you meld two childhood foods together.

5. Watermelon + buffalo wings

A bite into these extra spicy chicken wings will jolt the senses awake while the juicy watermelon cubes can help to soothe.

Give this cray cray combination a try at Wanderlust, Solaris Mont Kiara.

6. Banana fritters + sambal kicap

Tired of the Pisang Goreng Cheese fad? Try banana fritters the Johorean way: dip the piping hot bananas in spicy soy sauce instead!

7. Green tea + pomegranate

Who would've thought to offset the slight bitterness of green tea with the tartness of pomegranate?

At Shah Alam's Cake Jalan Tiung, these flavours are beautifully melded into a pavlova!
