Top Dishes of The Year
- Roti Canai
- Nasi Goreng Kampung
- Roti Telur
- Nasi Lemak
Concluding the year, the number one most ordered item is none other than the evergreen Roti Canai. It is quickly followed by other local favourites – Satay, Nasi Goreng Kampung, Roti Telur and Nasi Lemak. No need for further explanation; these dishes speak for themselves. Roti Canai, crowned as the No. 1 Best Bread in the world on Taste Atlas, is a local favourite and a culinary staple. Tear into its freshly made layers, dip it into a curry of your choosing, and let your taste buds ignite with flavour.
From succulent skewers of perfectly roasted Satay to the flavourful delights of Nasi Goreng Kampung and the fragrant scent of Nasi Lemak, these street food legends captured the essence of Malaysia’s culinary vibrancy, delivering affordably local eats directly to the doorsteps of our foodpanda community.
Here’s a fun tidbit: Roti Canai and Nasi Goreng dominate breakfast, lunch, and dinner orders, proving that Malaysians adore these dishes that not only satisfy but keep hunger at bay at any hour of the day!
Guess what’s been brewing? Indulging in the rich coffee culture, Malaysians reveal their top picks for that caffeine boost. Spanish Lattes take center stage, stealing the show, closely followed by the cool allure of frappes. Cheers to a coffee community that knows how to keep the brew game strong!
