Great news for Malaysians, you can order Western food to deliver right to you whenever you crave for it. As we live in Asia, we’re used to the fantastic Asian fare that our part of the world has to offer. Today, we highlight an absolute favourite, Western cuisine. Almost immediately, the imagery of delectable steaks, crispy fries and pasta come to mind. However, those are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
The term “Western food” is an umbrella term that encompasses all types of food from snacks, main courses and desserts that originates from the countries in Europe and America. The best thing that all Malaysians have in common is our love for food. It doesn’t matter where it comes from as long as it’s delicious! Below are various types of Western food classified by their portion size and meal course.
Types of Western Food
Bruschetta is a great starter that is simple and yet full of flavours. The dish is essentially slices of French bread with garlic, olive oil and salt. The toppings vary from tomatoes, meat slices, beans and cheese.
We recommend trying this dish and ordering from Projek Maging Steakhub.
2. Tagliere Affettati Misti
This is an Italian dish of cold cuts from several portions of meat and is served with vegetables and cheese. It is a wonderful way to whet your appetite with the various textures and savoury cheese.
Tagliere Afettati Misti can be ordered from Neroteca.
3. Jalapeno Poppers
These delicious and hot jalapeno poppers are savoury and addictive. It’s fun finger food for parties, gathering and is a great appetiser. It’s pretty simple to make at home, you just need fresh jalapenos, cheese (any kind) and an oven. You can try making at home or order delivery using foodpanda. In fact, I recommend you try this dish at Chili’s Grill and Bar or the daily Grind.
4. Chicken Wings
If you want to indulge in tender and juicy chicken, you can order a sharing plate of chicken wings. Perfectly sized for an appetiser, you’ll find yourself salivating and craving for more food. You don’t want to be too full because your main course comes right after the chicken wings. Alternatively, you could order chicken wings if you’re not really hungry or as a late-night snack.

A bowl of hot soup is so comforting and delicious. Great not just for an appetiser but also for those that miss home or are generally feeling unwell. Western-style soups include tomato soup, chicken soup, mushroom soup and onion soup. In fact, you can have a taste of it if you order from Simply Ribs and plenty of other restaurants using foodpanda.
1. Grilled chicken
Nothing can top the taste of grilled chicken. Grilling ensures that meat retains most of its moisture which leads to tender and juicy chicken. Even better, grilling is healthier than frying, which has less fat and oil content.

The classic meal that everyone loves. What’s excellent about burgers is the versatility of the dish. The fillings define and make up the flavours of the burger. Thus, there are many restaurants and burger joints that have developed original recipes for their burgers. Burgers are usually served with meat, vegetables and sauces.

Pasta is truly an amazing ingredient. The various types of pasta such as spaghetti, angel hair, fettuccine, macaroni and penne are so versatile. The list isn’t even remotely complete. But if I were to list them all, then we’ll never get to the next part of the article. Pasta is simple to cook and prepare, but the key to a pasta dish is the sauce. Popular cooking styles for pasta include carbonara, bolognese, Aglio olio and with cheese. Try out some pasta from the popular Pasta Panas!
Who can forget this delicious slice of pie? It’s a great choice for sharing and you can even choose the toppings on each pizza. With the various sizes, you can get own personal pizza or a large pizza to share among your colleagues, friends or family. Perfect for any occasion, who can say no to pizza? There are also plenty of protein options such as chicken, beef and seafood but also many vegetarian pizzas. Order from your favourite pizzerias like Pizza Hut or Mikey’ Original New York Pizza.
5. Fish and Chips
Fish and Chips are perfect for those craving fish instead of chicken. Fish has protein and minerals that are essential for our health. With the fries on the side, they provide some carbs in the meal and makes you feel full. The tartar sauce goes well with the fish fillet, and the sweet, sour and salty flavours go well with one another. Order fish and chips using foodpanda from Cor Blimey and the Manhattan Fish Market now!
The perfect end to a meal is dessert. With a fondue, you have countless choices to indulge in and dip into the fondue. The options available in restaurants are usually fruit, marshmallows, ice cream, cookies and more. You can even choose the fondue sauce to dip into. The choices include chocolate, cheese, strawberry jam and white chocolate.
Those that want to experience fondue at home can order it from DipnDip.
This dessert is similar to and yet different from ice cream. Denser and served at warmer temperatures, this dessert is more flavourful than the usual ice cream. This makes it perfect for various experimental flavours and vibrant colours. Trending recently is organic and gluten-free gelatos and desserts.
Order from the famous gelateria, Joy ST.
Celebrating a special occasion or just wanting to treat yourself? No worries, you don’t need any excuse to eat cake. It’s the perfect treat for any occasion, and you can have your favourite flavours. My favourite is cheesecake and red velvet cake. You can order some to deliver to you using foodpanda. Some recommended bakeries are Souka Bake Shop, Cat & The Fiddles Cakes and Jo’s Bakery.
