Dapur Malaysia is a tribute to mum, my teacher and inspiration. Growing up in Malaysia gave me a love for food and beautiful ingredients, packed with colour and crafted to create unique dishes that pay homage to the diversity of my home country.
Food is so important to Malaysian people and mum was renowned for her natural flair. The Dapur Malaysia menu is made up of recipes handed down and my own adaptations, to enjoy together and share the joy of authentic South East Asian food.
Reflecting the multi-ethnic makeup of its location on the equator in South East Asia, Malaysia is divided in two by the South China Sea, with Indonesia wrapping around the south, Cambodia and Vietnam to the north and shares borders with Thailand, Singapore and Borneo. Malaysian cooking reflects these rich cuisines and brings a fascinating blend of flavours and colour.
The vast majority of Malaysia’s population can roughly be divided among three major ethnic groups: Malays, Chinese and Indians. When you eat with us you experience a cross cuisine mashup that brings the best of flavour, texture and colour for a truly satisfying meal.
