Hello! We are Kat and Sue, and we're here to bring Malaysia to you!
We've been friends for a very long time and decided to launch Makan Malaysia based on our joint love for food and the flavours we miss from home
We grew up in Malaysia together, but now live here in the UK and it's become our mission to share some of the food and culture we love with all of you through our recipes, events and food deliveries!
Malaysian cuisine is the ultimate fusion food.
Think big, bold flavours, complex spice combinations and, of course, The Sambal - a spicy chilli sauce that is served with just about every dish we have!
Malaysian cuisine is influenced by Chinese, Indian, Tamil, Portuguese, Dutch, Arab and Javanese flavours to name a few. Throughout history these communities generally began their migration to Malaysia for it’s geographical benefits and economic opportunities and, in return, they introduced ingredients such as cardamom and peanuts which were combined with local Malaysian grown produce to create the amazing flavours we have today!
We could go on and on about how great and unique Malaysian food is, but why not try it for yourself ordered straight to your door?
