Malaysian Dinner Takeaway Style

Malaysia has an eating out culuture, it’s the way it is’s generally cheaper to buy something outside at the mamak, hawker centre or food court than to buy the ingredients and cook it at home (without factoring annoying parts like also having to wash up the pans, cooking utensils and plates).

It’s common to see people after work ordering food ‘bungkus‘ or ‘tar pau‘.

Pretty much everyone eats out, it’s only really economic when there are 4 or more people then it’s ok, plus you know it’s more healthy, less MSG, less oil and no other flavouring additives..

So sometimes I don’t want to eat out, or maybe it’s raining, or maybe I just wanna lounge at home, watch a movie, lay on the sofa and eat my dinner in comfort.

One night I did just that, I picked up a few of my favourite things on the way back..

It starts out with a table full of food, nicely protected with newspaper of course 🙂

The delicacies on offer were Malay style Otak Otak (Brains 0_o)..

Cooked to perfection..

My favourite, Malaysia Ramly burger, this monster is a ‘Daging double cheese

Along with that, of cours, had the best chicken wings in the inhabited world…he only had 9 left though, woe is be.

They are simply the best!

And we grabbed some drinks from the Mamak on the way back ‘Teh o ais limau – GURANG MANIS YAH!

Eating this well at home is great, and it’s pretty cheap too:

Otak Otak = $5 for 10
Chicken Wings = $12 for 10
Burgers = $6 for 2
Drinks = $4 for 3

So with plenty enough to feed 2 hungry people, total hits around $27 bucks.

    Bet we’d be worried about amount that comes out as well. 🙂

    Is like the elephant – eats one ton of food, drinks one ton … and we’ll be digging the tourist out later who stupidly stood behind it! 😉
