Food should always be an enjoyable part of your travels. Trying out new dishes can be a hit or miss. However, it’s always an awesome experience when you discover something you like. This summer, I travelled to Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand which introduced me to so many new amazing and flavourful dishes. I challenge you to be bold in trying something new.
Try Some Street Food
South-east Asia is known for its astonishing array of cheap and delicious street food.
Deserts – Sweet and Savoury
Food By The Beach
Trying Something New
Only in Malaysia will you find blue rice! It tasted pretty amazing too! Nasi kerabu kelantan is a popular local dish during the month of Ramadhan.
Fruits In South-East Asia
Durian is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I hated it but my friend on the other hand happily ate it as if it was some juicy, sweet pineapples. I definitely think anyone who travels to Southeast Asia should give it a try.
Interesting fact: Durians was voted the smelliest fruit in the world.
They have even been banned from eating on public transport in Singapore. A warning before you try durians, wear gloves!
Indonesian and Malaysian Cuisine
The Pad Thai I had in Rub Aroon Cafe is the best I’ve ever tasted. The Cafe is located in Phra Borom maha ratchawang (very close to WAT PHO temple) in Bangkok.
Traditional Hakka food is a rich part of the culinary heritage of southern China but you will also find this cuisine in Hawker Centers in Singapore. Hawker centres is an open-air complex and food court where you will find many food vendors offering a variety of cooked foods.
Now, this is what you call a feast!
Hopefully, my mouthwatering and delicious pictures have inspired you to give Southeast Asian cuisine a try. Stay tuned for some travel posts!
