Craving for that plate of scrumptious Hokkien Mee you ate during your last trip to Malaysia? Travelling across the causeway to get a fix of your favourite hawker dishes is now a thing of the past, as Resorts World Sentosa has gathered the best of Malaysia’s bona fide hawkers under one roof in its very own Malaysian Food Street.

Opened in January this year, the Malaysian Food Street at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) features renowned hawker stalls in Kuala Lumpur and Penang among others hand-picked by the RWS committee from more than 200 food outlets over a period of 8 months. From the Food Street's architecture and street decor of Malaysia in the 1970s, the trademark hospitality of street hawkers to the most famous and best tasting food, no expenses have been spared to bring you on a gastronomic journey through time.

Among the 17 food stalls, guests will be delighted to savour the acclaimed Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice, known for its unique two-way heating technique where coals are placed on top of the claypot to lock in the moisture and flavours of the rice and well-marinated chicken. Also from Kuala Lumpur (KL) is the Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee, renowned for its dark sauce which infuses the noodles with a fragrant aroma that has made it one of KL's signature dishes. Representing Penang is the Lim Brothers’ Char Kway Teow, a 50 years establishment which noodles are saltier and lighter in colour than the Singapore variant, and the Penang Ah Mei Hokkien Prawn Mee, cooked with a special broth made lovingly from friend fresh prawn shells and homemade chilli.

Malaysian Food Street is designed to evoke the
look and feel of the streets in Malaysia.
Finish your meal on a sweet note with the famous Penang Chendol - freshly made green jelly and red beans on shaved ice, drizzled with fragrant coconut milk. You can also try other tasty and popular Malaysian desserts like the ice kacang and pulot hitam (black glutinous rice). Before you leave, don’t forget to try the homemade pastries at Fung Wong Confectionery, a international brand name in Kuala Lumpur that started out as a home-based pastry business more than 100 years ago. Guests will love the crispy Char Siew Bao and their signature fragrant egg tarts.

Standing at 22,000 square feet, the Malaysian Food Street seats up to 516 guests comfortably. Fully air-conditioned, it is designed to evoke the look and feel of the streets  in Malaysia, with facades of old shophouses,  true-to-detail street stalls, and  replicas of 1950s-style coffeeshop furniture and street fixtures to set the mood. So next time you find yourself thinking of going Malaysia, lose the passport and relish the best of authentic Malaysian fare at home.
