8 Must-Try Food in Sungai Petani

Dear foodies, check out these 8 Must-Try Food in Sungai Petani. You’ll love them all!

1. Lobster

Dig into a generous serving of creamy Lobster in Superior Broth at Jade Garden Seafood Restaurant. Lobster is their speciality here, and this dish comes with a golden recommendation! The broth in this dish is gelatinous and rich in flavour from the high-quality bird’s nest used.

Don’t miss out on another local favourite- The Marmite Lobster. The dish pairs the distinct bitter and tangy flavours from the marmite while preserving the natural fattiness from the lobster. You’ll love it!

2. Tom Yam

Next on the list would be Tom Yam. At Mae Salong Thai Restaurant, you’ll be served only the most authentic Thai cuisine. This off-road foodie spot is a must-visit for you Thai cuisine enthusiasts! We think they serve up some of the best Tom Yam here- it’s the perfect balance of acidity and spiciness.

Boasting a team of chefs with decades of experience at hand, the staff at Yoshiya will make you feel like you’re in Japan!

While the sushi is commendable- you’ll have a wide variety of fresh rolls to choose from-the ramen comes with high praise too. So, be sure to get your hands on some.

Pop by OverStepped café when you’re in the mood for a hearty meal. Specialising in burgers, pasta and more, don’t be overwhelmed and order everything you set your eyes on! We recommend you get the Craggy Crusted Chicken, a rustic looking deep-fried chicken patty sandwiched between two toasted potato bun that’s stacked high with vegetables.

Moreover, you’ll love the addition of the secret sauce! If you’re in the mood for fish, then try the Salmon Steak Sandwich. You’ll get a thick slab of fatty salmon fillet grilled just so that you get that drool-worthy crispy skin!
