The editors at Bon Appétit magazine take notice of Malaysian cuisine and feature Malaysia as one of the three emerging hot spots for foodie travelers in the January 2007 issue of the magazine. Here are the excerpts of the article:
WHY:Because with top chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten citing this Southeast Asian country as a culinary influence, it’s time to experience its heady mix of Malay, India, and Chinese food firsthand.
TOP SPOT: Try one of Kuala Lumpur’s sprawling markets, such as Petaling Street or Central Market, for a street food extravaganza.
Well, it’s about time to head out to a Malaysian restaurant near you, or better still, pack up and go visit Malaysia soon. Satisfaction guaranteed, I promise.
