Malaysian food, hmmmm. I’m not really sure what Malaysian food is as I assume it’s a combo of many different styles, cultures, and cuisines. I ain’t no Asian persuasion, but we had no problem enjoying our meal here over the weekend after trying it out the first time. We dug right in and ordered up some delicacies of the land. I’ll attest to it being pretty darn delicious!
Malaysia Grill is one of those no-nonsense little Asian spots that pump out some pretty tasty food. Just a small spot with the all too familiar cookie cutter Asian restaurant look, but clean and cozy. As soon as we sat down I ordered a Singha beer and looked over the large menu of food choices. Seemed like a heavily Chinese food influenced menu with a mix of Indian, Thai, and Pan-Island influence. South east Asian maybe? Had to go with a few of the standouts that I had read about on other reviews.
Roti Canai – terrifically satisfying as a starter. That lightly grilled, soft and fluffy pancake bread thingie dipped into the sauce is like crack!
Malaysian Assorted Satay (Chicken & Beef) – it was ok. Kind of a fun if forgettable appetizer. I had to give it a shot. The beef satays were quite large though.
Mango Chicken – comes served in a hollowed out mango shell. Terrific presentation and delicious. Full of mango slices, onions, peppers, and white meat chicken.
Chicken Nenas (Pineapple Chicken) – comes served in a hollowed out pineapple shell. Again, fanciful presentation and delicious. Full of pineapple chunks, onions, peppers, and white meat chicken.
We both had the Coconut Rice with our main plates and it was a staple that did not disappoint.
You can tell this is a solid little locals spot as it filled up quickly. The prices are reasonable and actually on the cheap side. The food is tasty and prepared hot and fresh. The place is clean including the bathroom. Service is ok if a bit hurried and indifferent. Lots of cheap lunch specials too. Many choices on the menu, including vegetable plates for those vegans out there.
Bottom line -
Malaysian food is tasty food.
Great place for a south-east Asian food fix.
Yeah, Malaysia Grill is the kind of place that we would drop back in again if in the area. We’re easy to please. Tasty and cheap can’t go wrong!
