Food is very much part of our Malaysian culture and identity, and we definitely can’t deny that it has the power to bring people from all walks of life together. There’s so much to love about Malaysian cuisine – sugar, spice and everything nice.
As Independence Day and Malaysia Day are approaching, we’ve round up a few eateries where you can indulge in unique yet appetising food combinations incorporating local flavours which will make you feel proud to be Malaysian. Bring a friend, let’s jalan-jalan cari makan!

Rendang is good enough with just plain rice, but have you tried it on pizzas? SukaSucre Bistro owned by Chef Dato Fazley Yaakob (winner of Masterchef Celebrity Malaysia 2012) is where you can try rendang pizzas. Proud of his Negeri Sembilan roots, Dato Fazley curated a menu that is largely Asian-Fusion and offers interesting combinations of Malaysian and Western.
The rendang pizza here is topped with pulled beef rendang minang which is a dish that originates from Indonesia but popular among those in Negeri Sembilan. Who knew that this spicy goodness would go well with cheese, tomato, basil on a thin crust?
