Malaysia Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Malaysia, the restaurant, isn't exactly easy to find, tucked away as it is in a shopping arcade---but what a find it is. Americans are discovering the mélange of Chinese, Thai and even Indian flavors that make up Malaysian cuisine. Malaysia Restaurant was the first of its kind in New York City and has been converting people for many years now. Such dishes as spicy beef rendang and savory Malaysian spare ribs will leave you wondering how you went so long without tasting this exotic cuisine. The all-around favorite is the roti canai, a flaky flatbread served with a spicy curried dipping sauce.
