The aroma of chilies and spices, the savory taste of curried chicken, the tender texture of fresh roti: close your eyes, and you'd think you were on a street in Kuala Lumpur. Open them, and you're in Brooklyn at Pasar Malam, a Malaysian restaurant from restaurateur Salil Mehta, owner of Michelin-Star restaurant Laut. The name means "night market" in Malaysian, a nod to the eatery's focus on traditional Southeast Asian dishes. Thoughtful touches, including a backlit, two-language "Roti Station" sign, reinforce the authentic atmosphere.
But the real star here is the food, which encompasses plates both classic and contemporary. Diners can delve into nasi lemak, a mound of coconut rice surrounded by a sampler of anchovies, peanuts, boiled egg, and curry chicken—it's considered a Malaysian national dish. Street-inspired eats also abound, most notably roti paired with spicy curry dip. For an east-meets-west meal, try the roti Elvis-style: filled with peanut butter and banana, then served somewhere inside a spangled jumpsuit.
