Malaysia is often known as the heaven of delicacies thanks to its diverse cultural background. Going from city to another, the uniqueness in the way dishes are prepared is surely something you cannot miss. Spicy or sweet to the taste, food in Malaysia is usually served as rice or noodles. It is often said that a visit to Malaysia is never complete until you had tried cendol; a refreshing dessert made with shredded ice, topped with green rice jelly and red bean with sweetened syrup and coconut milk. This alone will surely satisfy your cravings!
