Malaysian Food

The beautiful island nation of Malaysia has a diverse cuisine influenced by its equally varied population. Let’s have a look at some of its most famous dishes!

Sate

Sate (or Satay) is one of the most popular street foods in all of Malaysia. This skewered meat dish is often made on outdoor grills with chicken or beef, and it is usually served with a peanut dipping sauce. Locals love to meet up with friends to share a meal around the Sate cart.

Hokkien Mee

Hokkien Mee is a noodle dish widely adored in Malaysia and Singapore. The ingredients used vary by region, but common ingredients include soy sauce, prawns, cabbage, chicken, and oyster sauce. It is a filling dish that can be adapted to fit your tastes.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is so popular in Malaysia that it is considered the national dish. The main focus of the dish is the creamy steamed rice, which gets its rich taste from coconut cream. The foods served on the sides depend on where you get your Nasi Lemak, but they often include peanuts, anchovies, and cucumbers.

Laksa

There are many different types of Laksa, but at its base, this dish always has noodles and soup. Some favorites in Malaysia are Curry Laksa (noodles with a coconut-based curry soup), Nyonya Laksa (sweet and spicy noodle soup), and Asam Laksa (noodles with a fish-based broth). Try them all and see which one you like best!

Roti

Thanks to its large Indian population, Malaysia absolutely loves Roti (flat bread). It is often served with chili sauce, curry, and egg. There are also sweet variations with banana, condensed milk, or sugar.

Vietnamese Food

One of the most famous Vietnamese dishes in the US is Phở, but there are so many more delicious foods from Vietnam. Let’s learn about a few amazing dishes and how to cook them at home!

Phở

This Vietnamese soup is one of the ultimate comfort foods. With its flavorful broth, tender meat, and chewy rice noodles, it’s no wonder Phở is one of the most well-known Vietnamese dishes! Making it at home is a long process, but the end results are worth it. Check out this recipe if you would like to try it yourself.

Bún chả

Bún chả uses the same tasty rice noodles as in Phở and pairs them with grilled pork and fresh herbs. It is also often served with a Nước chấm (a vinegar and fish sauce mix) dipping sauce. The fresh taste of the noodles with the tangy dipping sauce and delicious pork are an absolutely incredible combination! To make it at home, try this recipe.

Gỏi cuốn

Also known as Vietnamese spring rolls, Gỏi cuốn are rolls comprised of vegetables, pork, and prawns wrapped in Bánh tráng (rice paper). They are often served as an appetizer with a dipping sauce such as Hoisin sauce, peanut sauce, or Nước chấm. Try this recipe if you would like to make it at home!

Bánh mì

This Vietnamese sandwich uses French baguettes and native Vietnamese ingredients like Chả lụa (pork sausage), pickled carrots, daikon, cucumber, and coriander. In Vietnam, Bánh mì is typically a snack or breakfast food, but it is eaten throughout the day in the US. Here is a great recipe to try in your home kitchen!

Bánh xèo

Bánh xèo is a crispy, savory pancake stuffed with a myriad of ingredients based on preference. It can be filled with any ingredient, but recipes commonly include shrimp, bean sprouts, onions, pork, and cucumbers. Give it a try at home with this recipe!

Bánh cuốn

This delicious Vietnamese dish begins with a thin rice batter that is steamed to form a wrapper. This wrapper encloses a simple but exquisite filling made from ground pork, wood ear mushrooms, and shallots. It is often topped with fried shallots and fresh herbs. Sound appetizing? Take a look at this recipe!

Types of Ramen Broth

WN Ramen

WN Foods just released a Miso Ramen Base that you mix with water to create a delicious broth, and we’re working to create more flavors in the future. Let’s take a look at miso ramen broth and a few of our other options!

Miso

As it says in the name, miso ramen broth is made with miso, a fermented Japanese soy paste. The rich umami (savory) flavor of this broth pairs well with any topping you can think of! It’s a great option for warming yourself up on cold days.

Tonkotsu

Tonkotsu broth is made with pork bones. It’s often creamy, full of complex flavors, and very filling. Toppings like fish cakes and eggs really soak up the prominent taste of the broth. Doesn’t it make you hungry?

Shoyu

Soy sauce is the most important player in shoyu ramen broth. It sounds simple, but together with the chicken stock, ginger, and kombu, it creates a symphony of various different delicious flavors. We can’t wait to make this one for our wonderful customers!

Shio

Shio ramen gets its taste simply from salt. It’s a clear, light broth that is great for ramen newbies and veterans alike. Its straightforward but tasteful flavor makes it easy to pair with all your favorite toppings!
