They’ve paid numerous restaurants a visit while they were in Malaysia and today, we’re uncovering some of these places for you. Pack your bags, it’s an adventure!
1. Restoran Char Siew Yoong
Legit the best char siew fan out there, looking at that glistening outer layer that’s nothing short of extraordinary is enough to make anyone drool. Come with me as I bring you along on a journey to taste the crunchiest and the crispiest char siew and shio bak in whole Malaysia. Truly a guilty pleasure for Malaysians, the flavour totally invades every layer of the meat resulting in spoons of goodness accompanied by the fragrantful rice.
