Satisfying my tummy with Malaysian flavors

Today is one of those days wherein I want to eat someplace else aside from the canteen beside the office.

Fortunately, today marks the opening of the Philippine Halal Tourism Expo 2016 at the Abreeza Mall, Davao City.

Hoping to be able to grab a taste of something new, I went out of the office to have lunch at Abreeza Mall.

I was in luck; the booth of the Consulate General of Malaysia in Davao City is selling Malaysian food.

Without having second thoughts, I began tasting and buying some of the food they have to offer.

I started with something that looks familiar and simple, the Pandan Pancake (P10/pc), which was delicious and the sweetness was just right.

I then had the Camote (sweet potato) with sugar (10/pc), which I also enjoyed.

Then I had the Curry Puff (P20/pc and P50 for 3 pcs), which was flavorful.

For lunch I had the Nasi Lemak with Chicken (P100), which was also served with peanuts, chili paste, and boiled egg. Nasi Lemak is a Malaysian rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf.

The chicken that came with the meal was cooked well, it was not dry, and had lots of flavors. I also enjoyed the chili paste that came with, it was not too spicy and went well with the whole meal.


You can be assured that the dishes here are authentic since it is being cooked by the Malaysians themselves.

If ever you will be dropping by Abreeza Mall between today up until Sunday then you should drop by this booth and get a taste of authentic Malaysian food.
