Quick Bites @ Publika Solaris Dutamas, KL

KL has an assortment of Vietnamese restaurants serving noodle dishes like pho and bun but I wanted to see if I could find some banh mi instead. Banh mi is a Vietnamese sandwich made with a baguette, spread with mayo and butter then filled with your choice of meats, topped with strips of pickled daikon and carrot then lightly drizzled with a savory sauce. It’s one of those foods (like Mexican) that we dearly miss here in Malaysia.

Thanks to some comments off these two blog posts, I found out that yes, there is a legitimate banh mi shop in KL!

Durian Flowers with Sambal Belacan

Sarawak is a wondrous place that is distinctly different from the other states in the Malaysian Federation. Their history is different (they gained independence from the British in July 1963 whereas Malaya or Peninsular Malaysia became independent in August 1957). Sarawakian culture is different (the ethnic mix is balanced between native Ibans, Malays, Bidayuh and other tribes plus Chinese while Malaya is majority Malay with Chinese and Indians making up the rest). And, Sarawakian food is different as well.
