If you’re visiting Malaysia, you must eat some of the country’s delicious desserts! Here are our favourites that we reckon you should sample…

1. ABC (Air Batu Campur) is a mixed ice dessert, especially refreshing in the heat! It’s made up of shaved ice, gula melaka (coconut palm sugar syrup), other flavoured syrups, coconut milk and can contain things like red beans, kidney beans, grass jelly, corn and cendol (green, pandan rice noodles). ABC is also referred to as Ais Kacang.

2. Cendol is a real classic! Cendol is the name for both the dish as well as the green, pandan rice noodles that feature in this dessert. In it’s most simplest form it’s made up of coconut milk, gula melaka syrup, cendol and shaved ice. Sometimes there will be the addition of kidney beans. A MUST EAT when in Malaysia!

3. Pisang goreng or fried banana are really popular in Malaysia. The sweet bananas in Malaysia are a perfect snack when battered and deep fried. The sugars in the fruit almost caramelise and contrast so well with the crispy, crunchy batter.

4. Kuih are Malaysian snacks or sweets. They come in both savoury and sweet form and there are dozens of varieties. Ingredients such as pulut or sticky rice, pandan custard, coconut and glutinous rice flour feature heavily. They’re eaten for evening tea (afternoon tea but later) or simply as a snack. You’ll find kuih sold by vendors on the street or at restaurants for dessert.

Malaysian desserts are a must on any eating itinerary in Malaysia!

Tosh T says:

As much as you love ice desserts I reckon you'd like Hawaii's famous and ubiquitous shave ice found on every corner. It's shave not shaved for some reason. They are snow cones with flavored syrup of course but with vanilla ice cream and adzuki beans on the bottom. Eventually everything gets mixed. Quite delicious.

lookmun says:

Ryzalll Nasirrr says:

Forgot to tell you guys about the Pisang Goreng after the Cendol, but glad to see you managed to find it right opposite! 🙂 . Gosh I can eat a hundred of those right now.

Razin Zamir says:

Nothing important but I think the school boys on the left side from 0.25 actually missed a step and tripped…

El Diana J says:

OMG, that fried banana so crispy.. You should also try Pisang cheese. Fried banana with grated cheese and brown or palm sugar. Great Video, keep it up guys.

Nusa Budiman says:

I'm not complaining this time around on your choice of Malaysian dessert. Spot on. And that Uncle Chiam's pisang goreng is legendary. It has become an institution in Brickfields area. The best pisang goreng in town!

Math Addit! says:

The Blue Stuff was the pigment from Bunga Telang or Blue Pea Flower. You've come across it in Kelantan in their Nasi Kerabu. It contains a lot of antioxidants. Bunga Telang tea turns purple when you mix some acid with it.

Math Addit! says:

Air Batu = Stone Water = Ice
Campur = Mixture

I don't think you've tried Jemput-Jemput or Cucur yet. You should go try some.

Iman Nurhanis says:

Too bad you didn't try the Tau Foo Fah! It was literally behind you at 4:55 !!! It's like a soy bean pudding covered in either simple syrup or gula melaka syrup. Soooo simple yet so yummy!

afham 2 says:

Happy enjoy brooo

ma 43 says:

try mee rebus tulang/ gearbox !! ( marrow bone noodle *usually they use beef or mutton) the gravy tend to be a little bit sweet, thicker, rich of flavor, nice hint of spices. the best part * drum rolls * suck the soft jiggly part in the bone with straw. the best mee tulang u can find in kedah or johor.

Tan Tyng Tyng says:

The tortoise shell kuih is ang ku kuih aka 紅龜糕 which the filling is sweet mung been. It also come with other fillings by different colors eg. peanuts, red bean, etc..
Try teochew cendol as that is the best in town, they have branches in big malls in KL, just Google it.

Farred Mercy says:

Eric Yusok says:

I am enjoying your videos! You should definitely try E.O fish head curry, Boon Signature Roask pork, and go to SS2 Pasar Malam open every Monday, and Yee Wen restaurant.

Francis Darracott says:

Killing it guys!!!

Rizlan Ghazali says:

8:44 is Seri Muka authentic version… the Blue is the flower nightshade or something… i suspect you are eating authentic Nyonya Kueh

Rizlan Ghazali says:

Have you guys tried Nyonya Food?

Rizlan Ghazali says:

My Cendol is always Original Flavour. Ice, Green Noodles, Coconut milk, Sugar and nothing else…no beans, no sticky rice and absolutely no corn… that is so playing on the border of when Cendol turns into an ABC… blasphemy… but then its just me!!

Shafiq Hayyan says:

You should try Ais Tingkap. The only problem its only available in Penang. A definate thirst quencher like ABC and Cendol
