A Multi-Cultural Feast
Located within a strip mall in Richmond Hill, Restoran Malaysian is a multi-cultural feast for the palate. reflection of the diversity found within Malaysia itself, the cuisine is a composite of Malay, Chinese, and Indian foods, with flourishes of Peranakan (a blend of Chinese and Malay) as well as Mamaks (Indian Muslims). Resulting in a unique gastronomic experience, Restoran Malaysian brings to the fore an exotic range of flavours and cooking styles under the banner of this Southeast Asian nation.

Unusual Beginnings
Beyond familiar starters like meat satays, fish cakes, and spring rolls, Restoran Malaysian adds some unusual plates to the roster. Begin the feast with sotong bakar (BBQ whole calamari with picked veggies and green chili), penang rojak (fruits, vegetables, and tofu in a dark shrimp sauce with crushed peanuts and sesame), or a plethora of rotis including beef murtabek (stuffed with chopped meat, eggs, onions, and spices). Seven soups are proffered, four of which are of the tom yam variety—available in seafood, shrimp, chicken, and coconut chicken flavours.

From Mild to Spicy
For the main event, Restoran Malaysia serves very extensive arrays of meat and poultry, seafood, seasonal vegetable, rice, and noodle based plates. Little chili pepper icons denote the level of spiciness for each dish, so you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. Try the rendang minang – daging, which is a slow-cooked dish of tender beef prepared in a coconut, galangal, lemongrass, and tumeric sauce.
