Belacan Grill Malaysian Cuisine

Belacan Grill is my favorite Malaysian restaurant in the Los Angeles area–if not the west coast of the United States. I can’t rave enough about how good the food is; every dish served is truly authentic, scrumptious, and unique (meaning you can’t find the dishes in other Malaysian restaurants in the United States). Two thumbs way up from me!

Anyway, I took hundreds of food shots at Belacan Grill, but not everyone of them made it to the website. Clickthe image above to see the complete photo set; there are 21 dishes for your viewing pleasure…

If you would like to sample Malaysian cuisine and you’re in the Los Angeles area, pay Belacan Grill a visit and tell them that Rasa Malaysia sends you. They will take good care of your stomach and appetite because you are my reader!

At Belacan Grill, all food is true to their original flavors and HALAL.

    Your pictures looked great (as usual!) and now I’m wishing that they are a chain so that I’ll have one in my part of the woods! ;)

  15. cooknengr says:

    Great pictures. Home-sick Malaysians, Belacan Grill’s Char Kueh Tiaw will bring tears in your eyes.

  16. The Expedited Writer says:

    I must visit that place when I am in CA. Those pictures your took got me wiping my drools off my chin. Great job, RM :)

  17. maybahay says:

    fabulous looking food. the photos are so well-done, makes me want to reach out with a fork.yum.

  18. WokandSpoon says:

    Love the photos! Wish I was within spitting distance of Belacan Grill!

  19. Laurent says:

    Your pictures look great…as usual I must say. And the food looks gorgeous. Wish I could live on the West Coast. Maybe it is not the right forum but I have 2 quick questions for you:

    -Do you know a good Malaysian restaurant in New York (all these pictures have made me quite hungry)?

    -I intend to spend a few days in Singapore in November-December and was thinking about spending a week end in Malaysia. Any idea of where I could go for a couple of days?

    Thanks and keep up the good work.


  20. Cynthia says:

    I am fiercely proud to call you friend. The pictures, well you know, amazing, gorgeous, fantastic, great, excellent! The light, the styling, the composition everying is just perfect. Congratulations to you and the beautiful Melting Wok!

    Lyrical Lemongrass – thanks for your nice comment. :)

    Anonymous – Yep, the food was great, so after taking the pictures, I ate everything, LOL!

    Steamy – thanks so much! You’ve got yourself a date, at Belacan Grill. :)

    K&S – thanks for the comment and thanks for checking out the site.

    Jasmeet – correct, I love it too, because eating there is like eating at home…it’s very intimate and cozy, not commercialized at all.

    Andaliman – yeah, I would love to try out every single dish on their expansive menu too. ;)

    Yoyo’s Food – 谢谢。

    Sig – yes, don’t miss out.

    Radman – thanks.

    Cindy – Don’t miss it. Pencil it into your next trip, you would love it.

    Piggy – thanks.

    WMW – yeah, I would love to do more projects like this. It was really fun.

    Vegasbuff – cool, you should. :)

    East Meets West – where are you located? I will tell the boss to open a branch there. ;)

    Cooknengr – if only we can get Malaysian see hum here…yeah, it would be 101% perfecto.

    Expedited Writer – LOL, you are too funny. Yeah, don’t miss out the next time you are in CA. It’s certainly a lot closer than going back to Malaysia.

    Maybahay – yeah, or just use your finger to grab the food. LOL. ;)

    Wok and Spoon – you should move to CA, next stop!

    Laurent – thanks for your comment! For New York, I have tried Penang in Chinatown, and also Nonya Restaurant in Soho. Both are pretty good. You can check them out. :) Yeah, you should totally spend a weekend or two or longer in Malaysia if you are going to be in Singapore. As to where you want to go, it depends the “mission” of your trip to Malaysia. If it’s for food, do go to Penang (my hometown). You probably won’t find better street food elsewhere, in my opinion. If you want a little of city plus food, KL is great too. But I think Penang will be awesome, because it’s just different, plus you get to try a variety of really good food, and also can take in some sightseeing and heritage stuff. Send me an email if you want further information. :)

    Cynthia – Awwww, you are too sweet. Really. I am glad to have your as a friend because you really make me feel proud of myself, and I am sure Melting Wok would feel that same. Thanks again! :)

  22. Laurent says:

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to post such a quick and comprehensive reply. I really appreciate it. I will surely send you an email to get further information on Penang. Thanks again.

  23. Oppss says:

    hey, i have been there few times. maybe i’ll bump into you soon. hehe!

    Well done on the pictures and website. Like everyone said, you are incredibly talented!~

    btw, besides taking pictures and developing the website, do you cook their dishes too? If yes… i will gotta go there more often. hehe.

  24. Keropok Man says:

    well done! the pictures make the food so so enak!

    If I visit LA, I will go try it!

    Mention RM, we get discounts? :-)

  25. joey says:

    Congratulations on a job excellently done (and to Melting Wok too)! The website looks great and the photos fantastic! My mouth is watering and the only downside of your project is that I am totally drooling after those dishes which remain much too far away from me! :) Malaysia is actually closer… ;)

  26. veron says:

    Laurent – no problem. I am glad that I was able to offer you some information about Malaysia.

    Keropok – haha. I am not sure got discount or not…have to check with the boss. ;)
