Malaysian Food Street Eats @ RW Sentosa

Malaysian Food Street at Resorts World is the cheapest option available for some tummy filling before taking on rides at Universal Studios or venturing to the other parts of this manmade revelry. Friends have raved about hawker food in Penang and KL but my travels usually elude such culinary discoveries hence I was interested to give this a go - yet, maintaining some form of neutrality about the standard since they are "imported".

A pastry shop even!

Penang Assam Laksa

Queues for these are manageable, at least the preparation process was simple and I got my food in no time.

mee siam

I've known Nonya Laksa all my life when travelogues have sworn the best to be Penang's. Second to none indeed, this watery classic is "DA BOMB". Powered with spices and a tangy finish, pineapples serve as a wonderful ingredient - fruity flavours turned spicy. Chunks of tuna made this a delicious number, and I loved the thicker than usual laksa noodles too. 

Sold, sold...sold! Ticket to Penang on its way.  

KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee

This however, sported a longer and more permanent queue with some giving up midway. At least a 7 minute wait for the dish upon ordering, it better be dropdeadgorgeous kind of good.

Unlike the local ones, these are fried in black sauce and dished up looking more menacing than squid ink. I found it too saucy and somewhat salty though it was a different take on our local favourite. Plumped with seafood, it was actually a really good deal. 

Penang Lim Brothers' Char Koay Teow

I first tasted Penang Char Koay Teow in KL, infact, from a food festival that was randomly going on. I remember having it in the hotel room and finding it so good heading back for seconds.

Thinner oodles of flat noodles, these pack enough wok hei without being drippingly doused in oil. Nothing to hate, I embrace this with much love and stomach space!

Roti Canai and Nasi Briyani

Roti Canai and Curry Chicken ($6.80)

Malaysia's answer to roti prata. I found the original better than egg and chicken curry really hearty.

Yum!

iced tea

Drinks are the most expensive deal in this food court, a surprise find given that the rest of the dishes are considerably affordable. $2 Iced Teh-C Kosong or $2.20 for Jia Jia Liang Teh is pricey business. With most of the food up several spicy notches, paying through your nose for beverages is unfortunately unavoidable. 

Pleasantly surprised at the number of food gems uncovered, the parking fee or bus fare could be a dampener but definitely worth the while!
