DESTINATIONS malaysia langkawi Dining Ikan-Ikan


Located at the Four Seasons resort in Tanjung Rhu, this Malay restaurant serves traditional dishes in a nice, Malaysian-style setting with an open-air dining room. The menu includes meat, fish and vegetarian dishes prepared with fresh local ingredients, such as braised beef tenderloin, grilled Andaman sea bass and wok-fried green beans.


Malaysian cuisine fully represents the mixture and variety of Malaysian society: different culinary traditions (Malay, Chinese, Indian and so on) coexist and influence each other, creating a peculiar mix of tastes and flavours. Rice is a staple in all Asian cultures and is served with almost every dish, accompanied by meat or fish. Very characteristic is also the abundant usage of spices and coconut milk, like in Malaysia's national dish Nasi Lemak (coconut-flavoured rice with boiled eggs and peanuts). In Langkawi, you can find anything from traditional Malay cuisine to Chinese or Thai specialities, as well as western-inspired, international dishes: everything your taste buds desire, with the Langkawi rainforest and the Andaman Sea for dining backdrop.
