Have you been to Malaysia? Food are one of the most famous attraction in Malaysia. If you like spicy food, this country would be the perfect place for you to indulge your tastebud!

I am a Malaysian and spicy food is my everyday foods! Malaysia is famous for their chillie paste called 'sambal'. It's the mixture of chillies, onion, garlic, salt, sugar and fry them with some oil to bring out all the taste and fragrance.

Have you try the famous nasi lemak of Malaysia? 'Sambal' play an important role in defining whether the nasi lemak is good or not. We also have a famous Malaysia cuisine called 'Ayam Masak Merah' (lit. redly cooked chicken) that mix the fried chicken with sambal.

Sambal has a unique taste of sweet and spicy that definitely will make you want to eat more despite the hotness! I recommend you to try 'nasi lemak' or 'ayam masak merah' when visiting Malaysia!
