Malay cuisine is influenced by Chinese, Thai, Indian and Indonesian cuisines. Dishes have rice (nasi goreng) or noodles (mee goreng) cooked with meat (chicken, beef, mutton) or fish, all baste with coconut milk ans spiced with saffron, ginger, cinnamon, cilantro, garlic or citronella. The national dish is satay, grilled meat kebabs marinated in a spiced peanut-based sauce. Chinese eat with sticks while Malays eat with the right hand only. For desserts, do not be discouraged by the stinking perfume of a sliced durian; savour this tropical juicy-pulp fruit. All Malays enjoy it!
