5 ‘Atas’ Places To Enjoy Modern Malaysian Cuisine

As Malaysians, most of us, if not all, just can’t get enough of our local dishes (think nasi lemak, laksa, roti canai… yum!). They’re great when enjoyed as casual street food but restaurants are taking things up a notch to present finer Malaysian dining experiences while still preserving the flavours that we all love.

Blessed with diverse culture and cuisines, eating out in Malaysia is an adventure for the palate. While you’re at it, here are where you can appreciate contemporary versions of time-honoured delicacies within the comfort of upscale and Instagrammable settings, be it to celebrate your Malaysian pride or during a special occasion.
