Malaysian Food On The Rise


I was greeted by this lovely view of a New York roof-top alfresco restaurant when I logged on this morning and was delighted to see it featured Malaysian cuisine for a change. Perhaps Chef Wan, Minister Ng Yen Yen and the likes are doing something right. Read the full review here.
Is there a greater culinary pleasure than eating good food outdoors on a beautiful day? Whether you want to dine overlooking the beach, among vineyards, under the desert sun, even on a ship, we've got your table. Feast alfresco at one of the U.S.'s top outdoor dining destinations to learn firsthand what a little fresh air can do for your appetite.

Wow. That’s usually what’s uttered by visitors to this rooftop space. And it’s not just the great view of the skyline. The massive indoor area, the penthouse lounge, is bedecked with floor-to-ceiling windows. The outdoor space is open year round---heat lamps plus thick robes keep diners and imbibers warm during the winter. And while the view and design may compete for your attention, the food should be the star of the show. The well-executed menu, designed by Zak Pelaccio, late of 5 Ninth and the owner of Fatty Crab, focuses on Malaysian small plates. Crispy shrimp, refreshingly not greasy, are matched with a tangy pineapple curry sauce; fragile veal and pork meatballs burst with flavor; and thick noodles in a spicy coconut-soy sauce are comforting. Larger plates range from an oyster omelet to short rib beef rendang. There are several fruity house cocktails that go nicely with the menu.

Aunty Ninot,
More importantly, however, Malaysian food price (in Malaysia) is on the rise too. A very sad state of affair. har har har *sad laughs*
