- Frog Porridge
The name may sound icky but it is actually one of the cleanest dish that you can ever try. The frogs are thoroughly cleaned and are marinated in soy sauce mixed with wine and filled with onions, spicy chili and all types of ginger. When cooked properly, you will be amazed at how soft and succulent the meat of the frog is. It is then placed in light and gloopy porridge with green onion sauce.
- Sambal Sting Ray
This is commonly called as the Ikan Bakar or in English, barbecued fish. Before, people see sting ray as cheap and poor tasting type of fish. That thought lasted for a long time until a Malay had the genius idea of smearing it with sambal sauce. The sting ray is grilled while inside a banana leaf so that it can retain its natural flavors. After that, it is smeared with sambal sauce which is a mix of chili pepper, shrimp paste, spices and shallots.
- Chicken Rice
