Restoran Malaysia's treasure trove of curries and sambal-infused dishes leaves no stone unturned in the spice department. But the menu features a counterbalance to its fiery plates: a long list of juice drinks. These sweet libations range from the Malaysian cooler—orange juice, pineapple juice, and coconut milk—to the durian smoothie, and they effectively offset the intense flavours of Malaysian, Chinese, and Indian entrees. If you prefer your drinks hot, the staff recommends either concealing your own microwave under the table or ordering the teh tarik: black tea blended with condensed and evaporated milks.
As for the food, it's halal with many vegetarian-friendly options, such as garlic green beans or eggplant. The Indonesian fried rice comes topped with an entire fried egg and shrimp chips, and the ekor soup bursts with savoury hints of oxtail and coriander. The homemade roti, a type of Indian bread, is also popular, and it can be paired with curry mutton or stuffed with egg, onions, and chili. There's even a dessert version loaded with banana and covered in condensed milk.
