Hi, I'm new here but got directly interested on this topic as I love to eat.
Hmm in Indonesia, we consist of various tribes and each of them has their own unique and particular food. I mean very very unique to the degree of you couldn't imagine that you could eat that kind of food.
As for "Nattou" in Japan, is it made from bean? I think it's similar with what I have here. It's made of soybean and called "tempe".
Love to hear anyone's feedback.

Jackie (Food in Malaysia)

Postby Jackie » Tue Apr 05, 2005 6:36 am

Malaysia is a multiculture country which consists of 3 main groups. There are Malay, Chinese and Indian and other indigenous. In our coutries, each of our ethnic group has its distinct style of cooking. Below are the examples

Malay : Most of the food is spicy. You may try Nasi Lemak, Laksa, Keropok, Nasi Dagang, Sateh

Chinese: Bak Kuk Teh (most recommended), Hokkien Mee, or wantan mee

Indian: Roti canai, Nasi Kandar, Tandoori..

Other such as Nyonya food, also should have a try.

Culture in Malaysia is very rich and we can see a lot of food stalls, restaurant and coffee shops there. You may easily grab something that you like with low price. For the people who like to try different cuisine, i would recommend them to come to Malaysia. It definitely a pleasant trip. :lol:

Hey guys,

Since this is the topic for unique food in different countries, so perhaps the description in words is not enough. Do you have the photos? Yeah it's not difficult to find ... let's "spice up" your writings with some pictorial illustration! ;)

I know one thing, what is really unique here. It's called "Kama" it's a flour like thing, what you mix with kefir or buttermilk.. add some salt or sugar to taste. The kama flour is a mixture of rough grain flour and peas....

btw. Kama is seasonal food. It's good(nutritious and refreshing) in hot summer day, but I think nobody don't like it in winter..
