Ah, another MCO extension… Char kway teow, nasi lemak, assam pedas – how I miss simply hopping across the causeway for a bite of my favourite Malaysian dishes.

Sadly, it looks like leisure travelling is still not going to resume anytime soon, thanks to the pandemic. Nevertheless, there’s no need to fret! We’ve got you covered so you can get a taste of the foodie paradise from the comforts of your home.

1. Kota Zheng Zong Bak Kut Teh: Herbal claypot goodness

Kota Zheng Zong Bak Kut Teh - Malaysian Food Delivery
For the herbaceous style of bak kut teh, try the Premium Bak Kut Teh with Buttons Mushrooms in Herbal Soup (from $15.60) from Kota Zheng Zong Bak Kut Teh.

If there’s one dish which I stand with Malaysia for being the country that does it better, it’s bak kut teh. Kota Zheng Zong Bak Kut Teh hails from the state of Johor and has been around since 1980. Their signature item is none other than the Premium Bak Kut Teh with Buttons Mushrooms in Herbal Soup (from $18.60). Or if you prefer pork belly, there’s the Pork Belly Bak Kut Teh (from $13.78) too. Bak kut teh also goes well with Braised Pig’s Trotters (from $15.46) and Muar Mackerel Otah ($12.58), so don’t forget to get these dishes too!

Lavender Bakery - Malaysian Food Delivery
Lavender Bakery offers a wide variety of top-notch bakes, such as this refreshing Tropical Mango Cake ($42).

Having used to visit their cafe after a long day of shopping in JB, I was super excited when Lavender Bakery finally opened their first Singapore bakery at Jewel Changi Airport. Here they offer a range of delicately handcrafted cakes that will surely be suitable for any occasion. Fruity favourites include, but are not limited to, the Tropical Mango Cake (from $42), Exotic Fruit Cake (from $46) and Strawberry Cake ($46). Cheese lovers will also enjoy the Baked Cheese (from $50) and Internet-famous Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($55).

Kolo mee is a dry noodle dish native to Sarawak, which is admittedly a long way from Singapore. Thankfully, Jia Xiang Sarawak Kolo Mee has brought the famous Malaysian comfort dish to our shores! Savour the springy and flavourful noodles in their signature Jia Xiang Mee ($9.40), or the Gold Jia Xiang Mee (from $11.40) which comes with abalone slices. For something with a Western twist, try the Black Pepper Smoked Duck Kolo Mee ($9), Fried Chicken Kolo Mee ($9) or Fish Fillet Mee ($9).
