When we talk about the Malaysian culinary scene, the topic of street food is always front and centre. If there\u2019s one thing that Southeast Asia has perfected is the art of road-side snacks. These are local delicacies that you can rarely find anywhere else, let alone a fancy restaurant. Sure, a five-star Michelin eatery will give your taste buds a gastronomical adventure. But street food is the stuff that feeds your very soul. It\u2019s warm, comforting and most of all, delicious. Here are some of Malaysia\u2019s top 10 street food and the best places in Malaysia where you can find them. 10 Must-Have Malaysian Street Foods Satay The crown jewel of Malaysian street food, satay as definitely earned its place as number one on this list. Essentially a form of Asian shish kebab, satay is marinated meat pierced through with bamboo skewers. But unlike shish kebab which uses ground meat, satay is made from whole pieces of chicken, beef or other kinds of meat. The meat skewers are then grilled over an open charcoal flame until cooked and tender. Satay is always enjoyed best with salty, sweet peanut sauce (kuah kacang) and with other accoutrements like nasi impit, raw onion slices and cucumbers. Pisang Goreng Essentially a kind of banana fritter, pisang goreng is simplicity at its best. You can even make it at home because it\u2019s that easy. Often found at a street vendor, pisang goreng is made of a special king of banana called pisang tanduk, dipped in batter and deep fried until golden brown. It is best eaten fresh off the wok, optionally with spicy soy sauce. But pisang goreng is also delicious eaten just on its own. Ramlee Burger You won\u2019t find this at your local McDonald\u2019s, but there\u2019s no shortages of Ramlee burger stalls. You may even find one around the corner from where you live. It\u2019s one of the most common street foods that you can get. They are open primarily at night or late evenings as a type of dinner food. Ramlee burgers are so named because of the brand of burger patties used to make them. Often topped with plenty of lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, chili sauce, mayo, and black pepper sauce, Ramlee burgers also can be customised with omelette (burger special), two patties (double) and\/or with cheese. Char Kuey Tiaw One of those street foods where you have to find a nice table to enjoy, char kuey tiaw is a special stir-fried noodle dish of Chinese origin with \u2018char\u2019 literally translating to \u2018stir-fried\u2019 in Hokkien. There are countless variations but the one you may be familiar with is the one doused in sweet and salty gravy. It\u2019s full of spring onions, beansprouts and often contains a protein: beef, chicken, prawn or clams. Air Batu Kacang Also known as ais kacang, air batu campur or ABC, air batu kacang, literally translated to \u201cice bean\u201d, is a shaved ice dessert made of evaporated milk, red rose syrup (sirap ros), and topped with red beans, corn, grass jelly, and in some cases even ice-cream and chocolate syrup. There are many variations depending on the vendor\u2019s creativity and recipe. But it is all in all, one of the more famous local delicacies enjoyed as a beverage or dessert. Apam Balik A sweet, thick Asian pancake that\u2019s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, Apam Balik is reminiscent of a waffle. The inside is topped with margarine or butter and sprinkle with sugar. You can also ask for any variety of choice. While traditionally filled with crushed peanuts or sweet corn, you can get modern Apam Balik in chocolate, strawberry jam and peanut butter. Depending on what the stall has. Yong Tau Foo Half salad, half soup, yong tau foo is an enigmatic dish that has its origins in Chinese cuisine. It consists of several meats, vegetables and other bite-sized foods steamed or often boiled in a vat of salty stock to give it flavour. You can eat it dry with sweet soy sauce, or doused in the savoury soup. Any reputable yong tahu stall (usually a food truck) will have no shortage of \u2018buffet\u2019. These include meat balls, fish balls, crab sticks, stuffed tofu, tofu skin, fried tofu, dried noodle packs, squid, mushrooms, wontons, and many more. Keropok Lekor A creation hailing from Terengganu, keropok lekor is a savoury fish cracker that is chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It is one of the most commonly found street foods and you can get them virtually anywhere in Malaysia. Just like pisang goreng, keropok lekor is a stable afternoon snack for Malaysians of all ethnicities. Eaten with sweet, spicy chili sauce, it is the perfect appetizer before a hearty meal. Cendol More of a dessert than a snack, cendol is a rich sweet chilled beverage infused with palm sugar (gula Melaka) and thickened with coconut milk. You\u2019ll find other tidbits stirred in as well such as red beans, green rice flour jelly, jackfruit, durian and flavoured with pandan. It\u2019s a delectable palette cleanser after a heavy meal full of spicy, warm foods. If you prefer a less rich version, there are cendols diluted with shaved ice to make it more refreshing than filling. Ayam Bakar Roasted chicken wings slathered in a spiced honey marinade. That\u2019s what you get when you look for Malaysia\u2019s iconic ayam bakar. They are hard to miss. Rows of crimson chicken wings barbequed on a charcoal rack and glazed with sweet sauce. If you can\u2019t find the fire, then all you have to do is find the smoke. Because the signature sign of a barbeque chicken stall nearby is thick wafts of fragrant smoke. Often eaten on their own, you can takeaway and eat with a rice dish of your choice. Tantalise your Taste Buds with Malaysian Street Food This list is by no means the end of Malaysian street food.
