If you’re looking for a different taste that isn’t your ordinary Asian take-out…
let me introduce to you my family’s new favourite Scarborough restaurant – Gourmet Malaysia.
Coming from the Philippines, I realized that not only do we share similarities in language with the Malay culture such as balik (return), Sinta/cinta (love), langit (sky/heaven), and so much more but Filipinos share similar taste that can be found in Malaysian cuisine and all of this can be because of the history they once shared.
When I first tried the food it brought me back to my indiginous roots. It had that familiar hint of the asian tropical taste.
For an appetizer, I would recommend the gado-gado. It is very similar to something we call kare-kare. It is a vegetable medley with a peanut buttery sauce.
After some more food, let’s not forget desserts!
With our friend Yummys (owner).
To celebrate my birthday he brought out a large plate of sliced fruits on the house!
Thank you to everyone at Gourmet Malaysia for this wonderful evening.
I could definitely say that the food here is sarap (tagalog)/sedap (malay)!
Cuisine: Malaysian, Singaporean & Indonesian
