I don't know, sure it's good, but it makes people think your family is a bunch of criminals.

@Yatagarasu - if you have an english recipe for it I'd be most delighted!!! 

 

@arekathevampyre - lol - you....

1. We also have coffee chicken / pork ribs. And coke chicken. Both are similar in style and recipe to marmite chicken substituting coca cola / coffee for marmite - I haven't got the evidence, but I think that marmite chicken is the classic and came first.  

 

Yeah, Singapore / Malaysian food - hard to draw the line - I guess if you have less of an iron asian stomach - go to Singapore, if you want more germs but authentic street 'flavour' with too much salt / dripping / unhealthy and random ingredients come to Malaysia? :-D I don't argue with Indonesians whether 'Rasa Sayang' belongs to Malaysia or Indonesia, so I won't argue with Singaporeans whether Satay sauce belongs to Singapore or Malaysia either, in the same way that Ukranians shouldn't really argue with Polish / Russians / Romania / Lithuania about the genesis and ownership of Borscht... shared heritage is good!

 

2. I feel all the best tasting and most authentic muar chee has shallots.I get very upset when muar chee sellers don't serve it with shallots (which is most nowadays); in the past - ALL muar chee sellers would serve it with a healthy dose of fried shallots - muar chee without shallots are marauders!!! 

 

3. Thai dessert - Couldn't remember and had to look it up - 'kanom mor gaeng'. It's really good - much better than tao suan imho. The google pictures show it compressed in to a cake like consistency; but the ones my friend makes is served as a pudding / mash consistency in a bowl with ice cream on top. It's also often served with shallots on top; are you finding a trend here, haha xD 

 

@YatoWow, I never thought of putting doritos on dry ramen. Sounds like a good texture mix, albeit not very nutritious. I will endeavour to try adding it the next time I make dry ramen!

Well to be fair, a lot of my family was in prison. :P happens when you're poor and you do drugs and drink. I get mad at it, because people thought the same of me. It was very hard shaking off the stigma growing up.

1. Coke chicken ? Have not tried that !! 

(why am I missing out on so many things ?!) I actually feel that Malaysian food taste better :)

 

2. yeah I didn't even know that shallots was part of it :(

and now people are health conscious I guess so they took it away . Tradition is dying out . 

 

3. Awesome !! Thank you !

Nope . How does it taste like ? 

Pickled walnuts are hard to describe. They are definitely an acquired taste.....

Malaysia also has a dish called marmite chicken - which is essentially deep fried chicken, coated in a honey-marmite sauce, then dipped in to roasted sesame seeds. It's awesome. If you live near Birmingham, Malaysian Delight in Chinatown does a really good version of Marmite chicken - @Midland Tyke - open invitation - though you might need to bear with me ranting about food!! :-D 

Accepted! But if I accept and we don't also invite @Lilsi that might not play well... PM me/us with some dates (before 30/12)

Ex British colonies in South East Asia (e.g. Singapore / Malaysia) thinks it's fair game to add a spoonful of Marmite / Bovril to hot water and drink it as soup

I do this. :) 

I add a bit of tomato juice to it usually, it tastes lovely.

So I tried Umeboshi last night. Pickled salted plums.

 

Holy shit they are sour and salty at the same time.

Ever tried saladitos? They're Mexican-style salted prunes that look like pieces of barite rock. When cured properly, they don't have any prune or plum flavor, just salt and some tanginess.

Fraid not. But I have had a lot of Mexican candy. Chili-chocolate coffee candy is amazing.

So I found out the other day at work that someone from down south thinks that gravy on chips (Fries for you US people) is weird. Not really as adventurous as some food here though :P

"Marmite" sounds to me like some kind of finely ground weasel meat.

we also have type of meat that's name translates to "liver cheese" or "meat cheese" (it doesn't taste weird or anything though... kinda tastes like bologna meatloaf)

not so much a weird food, but a weird tradition surrounding food, there is time every year that it seems like everyone goes completely head of heels for asparagus.. restaurants will even have special asparagus menu... (and I just sit there, confused at why everyone has gone crazy for asparagus...)

In my view you gotta treat umeboshi like salted egg, a little to go with a lot of rice.... Kinda Asian versión of cheapo no money food. Haha 

 

Saying that, I once met a couple that told me in Czech / Slovakia, they have a meal that consists of bread balls in custard. As a main dish. Apparently it stems from needing to make do with basics for pre pay day meals...

A lot less healthy... Haha. Coke chicken is a signature dish of a small family run restaurant near the famous roast duck place... I can't remember the name but when I remember I'll let you know so you can stalk it. It's not far from Kelana Jaya. Marmite chicken is still my favourite tho. :-)

Canada has poutine (cheese curds and gravy on french fries). For some reason, every once in a while I'm determined to eat it, but I usually regret it when I do.
