Malaysian Restaurant Week Kicks Off June 18


If you’re hearing the call of satay, roti canai, and mee goreng, we’ve got good news: Malaysian Restaurant Week kicks off next week, from June 18 to 24. Fatty Crab, LAUT, Penang Malaysian Cuisine, and Satay will offer a prix-fixe three-course menu for $20.12. Other restaurants (including Fatty ‘Cue, Dragonfly, Pranna, Spice Market) will offer special Malaysian dishes on their menu. For more info visit Malaysia Kitchen.

And to get in the mood, read Zak Pelaccio’s travelogue for the site, in which he returns and recoils (and returns and recoils some more) from budu, Malaysia’s powerful version of fish sauce.
