Malaysia Express - Affordable, Generous Meals

 

Recently opened Malaysia Express is what many has been craving for: fuss-free, affordable, and tasty Malaysian food. It has that home-made taste, and as the Express name indicates, you come here, eat and leave, with a very full belly.

The decoration is humble and makes you almost feel like you are in Malaysia yourself, at a roadside eatery perhaps. And the food is truly authentic.

They have an excellent lunch deal: 8,90€ for a very filling lunch. It is also worth mentioning that the food here is halal. If you opt for the menu I say good luck: there are so many great-looking options, and it’s almost impossible to choose.

We went for the satay as a starter, and I loved it. For the main course, I chose the laksa (I am a huge fan) and wasn’t disappointed. I couldn’t even finish the dish, it was enormous. The beef rendang was also flavorful and spicy. Should you be looking for vegan and vegetarian options, there is plenty for you to choose from. For dessert, I opted for the tapioca pudding with coconut milk and brown sugar.
