Formerly known as Bo Laksa King's Bubbles and Bits, this hole-in-the-wall restaurant serves an array of pan-Asian dishes, including Burmese salads and the namesake noodle soup. More

My Favorite Lunar New Year Dish: Fish Salad for a Crowd

New York Lily Chin 1 comment

Yee sangis a large-format salad of raw fish, shredded vegetables, and crunchy bits eaten exclusively during Lunar New Year. It originated in mainland China, but these days it's most commonly found in Chinese communities in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. And in Flushing at Malay Restaurant, which serves my favorite version of the dish—Malaysia included. More

Come to Curry Leaves in Flushing for Malaysian Pickles

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Sometimes you gotta have your coconut chicken soups or char kway teow or crackly oyster omelet, and when the craving strikes, Curry Leaves is there for you. But the real star of a meal there is the vegetables. More

Coco's Malaysian Shaved Ice Nails it All (Except the Ice)

New York Max Falkowitz 4 comments

The texture of Coco's shaved ice is brutally coarse—much more like an American snow cone—but it nails the proper flavor, which is more than you can say for plenty other Malaysian shaved ice in the city. More

Meet Vendy Awards Rookie Finalist Mamak

New York Clay Williams 2 comments

Although Malaysian food is gaining a growing foothold in New York, Mamak, which launched back in April, is one of the first to bring rendang to the city's street food scene. More

No Breading Required for New Malaysia's Fried Chicken

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

The most memorable bite on a recent visit to New Malaysia was a dish of Pataya Fried Chicken ($8): moist, tender, and a pleasure to gnaw off the bone, with a crisp, greaseless crust made from nothing more than some spices, perhaps a touch of sugar, and the chicken's own skin. More

Singapore Stories: Ice Kachang, Malaysian Shaved Ice with Beans, Jelly, and More

Singapore Stories Yvonne Ruperti 3 comments

Singaporeans escape the heat with a mound of sweetened shaved ice that puts a Snoopy Sno Cone to shame. More

Thai Chicken Satay

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 4 comments

Chicken skewers are all too often dry and and flavorless, but a sweet and pungent marinade ensures this chicken satay is anything but. More

Larry Reutens' Guide to Singaporean and Malaysian Food and Ingredients in NYC

New York Allegra Ben-Amotz 12 comments

Manhattan can call Larry Reutens one of Singapore's culinary ambassadors to the city. Masak is one of very restaurants in New York that serves Reutens' native food, but it's not Singaporean the way his grandmother made it. "When I cook, I try to marry those traditional flavors with what I can find here at the farmers market or whatever is in season, rather than trying to replicate them entirely." Reutens shared his favorite shopping spots with us, along with some restaurants that offer a taste of home. More

Aux Epices, New Malaysian Homestyle Cooking in Chinatown

New York Max Falkowitz 4 comments

We were crestfallen when we saw that Bluebird Sky, our friendly neighborhood coffee shop, lunch spot, and meeting space, had closed. But a new nice-ish spot has opened in its place, and it's serving homestyle Malaysian food we'd be happy to eat again. A couple dishes after the jump. More

TGI Fry-Day: Crispy Bean Curd at Sanur

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

Sanur isn't the best Malaysian restaurant in New York, or even in Chinatown, but it's an exceptionally cheap one with a funky basement dining room that encourages lingering. This crispy tofu salad is a regular on my ordering rotation. More

TGI Fry-Day: Pandan-Wrapped Chicken Wings at Nyonya

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

I was not expecting Nyonya, a decent if not outstanding Malayasian restaurant we visit now and again, to make one of my favorite plates of chicken wings in New York. But they do. More

Slurped: The Penang-Style Fried Cubes at Sanur

New York Chichi Wang 7 comments

We all agreed that the restaurant being in a basement was not off-putting. This could not be said of the steep and grimy stairs which lead to 18B Doyers, the restaurant portion of Sanur. Still, I would happily take those stairs again for another serving of the ineptly named "fried-cubes," certainly the most cubically shaped noodles I have ever eaten. More

Lunch Today: Soups at Nyonya

New York Carey Jones 2 comments

With the arrival of fall and the occasional chilly, gloomy day, we've been looking for 1. warming, soothing lunch options that 2. don't make us stray far from our office. So the soups at Nyonya, right downstairs, start sounding pretty appealing. More

TGI Fry-Day: Sentosa's Malaysian Pork Chops

New York Jessie Pascoe 1 comment

If the picnic months of summer have turned you into a barbecue freak, a taste of the Malaysian Pork Chops ($11) at Sentosa in Flushing are a must. More

Laut: Michelin-Starred Malaysian Restaurant Delivers On Flavor

New York Carey Jones 15 comments

After a few visits to Laut in Union Square, and after plenty of less impressive meals around Chinatown, I'm convinced it's my favorite Malaysian restaurant in Manhattan. More

Lunch Today: Sanur

New York Carey Jones 1 comment

[Photos: Maggie Hoffman] Walk into Sanur on Doyers Street and you'll probably think, as I did: "That's it?" A steam table, a cash register. Advertising "economical breakfasts" such as nasi lemak for $2.50 ($2.50!) and "3 items over rice"... More

Spice Hunting: Palm and Coconut Sugar

Spice Hunting Max Falkowitz 19 comments

Spice Hunting's tour of the world of specialty sugars has already explored earthy turbinado and rummy piloncillo; now it's time to talk about my absolute favorite: palm sugar. More

Midnight Snack: Where to Get Late-Night Tripe

New York Zachary Feldman Post a comment

As befits an ingredient so texturally challenging and confounding in taste, tripe is generally regarded with particular revulsion from its dissenters. But once you get past the idea of it, tripe becomes quite delicious. Almost always braised, its fortifying qualities also make it perfect late-night food for the winter months. More

Daily Veg: Okra with Shrimp at Nyonya

New York Carey Jones Post a comment

It's pretty telling of Malaysian cuisine that "Shrimp With Lady Fingers" ($10.50) at Nyonya is listed under the "vegetable" section of the menu; shrimp is pretty much a guaranteed ingredient in most Malaysian vegetable dishes. But it is indeed a vegetable dish. More
