Langkawi Malaysia doesn’t get the attention it deserves on the Chowhound boards, says Thomas Nash. The rojak “brought back memories of an all too brief visit to KL for me.” It’s refreshing and funky all at once: ice-cold chunks of jicama, mango, pineapple, and cucumber in a sweet soy sauce spiked with shrimp paste and sprinkled with peanuts.

Roti murtabak
with beef is a well-done version of the stuffed pancake, with a curry dip. And the crispy candied squid in a sweet soy sauce is a great appetizer for a group. The rice dish nasi lemak is good too, says Mr_Happy. K K likes the Malaysian iced tea, which is a bit earthier than its Hong Kong counterpart.
