According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Malaysian meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic Malaysian cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon to Belacan Grill in Tustin. Founded on the culinary talents of Malaysian born chef Ken Tan, Belacan Grill is the only Malaysian restaurant currently in the O.C. Step into the elegant, upscale environment for a specialty cocktail at the bar, or plant feet firmly in the dining room to surreptitiously glance at Malaysian art or the authentic rickshaw breezily holding court in the corner. Belacan’s menu plays a symphony of mouthmelting noodles, exotic spiced dishes, and vegetarian options for sharing with other humans.


Riviera Magazine, the Orange County Register, and The Orange County Reader blog, reviewed Belacan Grill. OpenTablers give the restaurant an average of four stars, and 89% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • The impressive thing about Belacan is how varied every dish is. Noodles range from a basic chow mein to the mamak mee goring, a cobweb of yellow noodles cooked with curry and tamarind, simultaneously spicy and tangy. – Sebastian Iturbide, Rivieria Magazine
  • Starters include a seafood lemongrass soup…that absolutely soaks your senses with aromatics. Curry chicken pops…are petite pieces of popcorn chicken that explode with seasoning, each tiny bite tasting bigger than you can believe. – Jeff Overly, Orange County Register

Belacan Grill

Using halal meats and Malaysian recipes, Belacan Grill presents diners with a menu populated by diverse dishes and preparations. The seafood selection includes live crab or lobsters prepared in one of five ways: Belacan-style means meat will be stir-fried and served with shrimp paste, while the curry option sweetens meat with a coconut-milk gravy. Whole fish can be steamed or deep-fried, and blanketed with brown-bean sauce or a blend of spices and fresh chilies. Like best-selling romance novels, the beef rendang is spicy and tender, making it one of Belacan’s most popular dishes, as is the mamak mee goreng, a tangle of stir-fried egg noodles, chicken, shrimp, and sprouts in tamarind sauce.
