There's no such thing as "too late to cari makan" in Malaysia
In fact, 'late' is when most mamak restaurants and hawker stalls are swamped with
customers looking for food.
We know how hard it is for Malaysians to turn down late night yam cha sessions,
so don't forget to quench your thirst with some Lipton Ice Tea while you're at it!
You can even find freshly prepared food as late as 11pm because Malaysians just love their supper food, like:
1. Super gooey cheese naan
Who needs pizza when you have cheese naan?
It's rumoured that the best cheese naan can be found in Restoran RSMY. It's tough to deny it, as seen from the thick, gooey, cheesy goodness oozing out from their signature naans.
Check out our list of best cheese naans in KL here.
2. Burger bakar's thick patties
The Malaysian version of a gourmet burger is a combination of everything sinful: deep fried giant patties, topped with bacon streaks, and a generous amount of cheese sauce.
Tastes better at night, downed with a cooling drink like Lemon Ice Tea. :D
3. Those hawt BBQ chicken wings
4. Ikan bakar!
5. Late night steamboat at the lok-lok van
The lok-lok van is a welcoming sight after a night of epic partying.
Just grab a paper plate, pick the skewered meat or vegetables you want, dip it in boiling hot water, then pair it with any sauce you like. No wonder it's a late night favourite.
6. All the different types of satay
7. Hokkien mee, KL style
There are different types of hokkien mee, depending on which part of Malaysia you're living in. We're referring to the KL version, thick noodles cooked in thick soy sauce. The darker, the better.
8. Roti tissue, or roti skyscraper?
9. A simple packet nasi lemak bungkus
10. The huge Taiwanese fried chicken chop
11. Oh chien, or you could call it oyster omelette
With so much good food around, it's no wonder Malaysia is one of the best food destinations in the world
