In times of stress, we’d often find ourselves turning to food to provide us that emotional comfort. It does not only fill up our tummy, but also lift our spirits as well. Evidently, food is the way to anyone’s heart and especially in Malaysia, food is everything to us.
How we would look like if someone takes our food.
So what’s the comfort food most preferred by Malaysians? Well check out the 7 foods below!
1. Nasi Lemak

This dish is the epitome of all things Malaysian and is often paired with fried chicken, kerang, sotong and more.
Hey, listed as one of TIME magazine’s healthy balanced breakfast meal ok! Which is strange considering the direct translated name for this is “fat rice”.
Of course, besides the aromatic rice, the verdict of a good nasi lemak always boil down to its sambal! Even if the sambal is too spicy, we WILL endure the pain and still chow them down!
Super spicy sambal got us like…
2. Cheese Naan
By far one of the best things that has been bestowed upon us. This cheese-stuffed Indian bread is practically God sent – some restaurants or mamaks even finish them off with more cheese on top!
However, what really gets us going is our love of seeing that stringy cheesy pull when we try to split the naans apart.
The only real sinful thing about this is not finishing it!
I’m sure all of us have dipped our biscuits into a hot mug of Milo or even used the powder as spread on our bread. It’s practically every sekolah rendah kid’s breakfast! Not to mention feeling badass when you ate only the chocolate powder from a spoon.
No matter which way you choose to take your Milo, it’ll still be pure amazing blissful chocolaty-goodness.
You tell them, Willy Wonka
Undeniably the best thing to have during a hot sunny day (which is 365 days in Malaysia) and the best cure for a bad day. Ice cream quite literally soothes the soul and is what every inner child in us wants.
There’s a reason why people from TV shows always chow down on a tub of ice-cream when they are going through rough times!
5. Ramly Burger

When we think burgers, Malaysian’s no. 1 choice will be none other than the Ramly Burger. Who else can we depend on besides Abang Burger to save our stomach from late night hungers or cravings??
Sometimes when we feel like spoiling ourselves, we’ll even order the double burger or burger spesial or both! Andddd don’t be fooled by the messiness because most of us love it extra sloppy!
6. Maggi noodles
Whether you like it fried with telur mata on top or in its soupy goodness, you can never go wrong with Maggi mee. Especially when they are quite literally instant noodles!
Be it at the mamak or cooking it yourself at home, these instant noodles bring a certain familiarity to all of us. Especially when it’s our go-to meal when mom’s not home, late night hunger pangs or just plain lazy to cook.
Oh and here’s the right way to eat any instant noodles.
Well who doesn’t love pizza? They are practically the world’s favourite go-to meal and is the embodiment of all comfort foods.
But let’s forget about the usual pizzas for awhile because Malaysians can now take it to the next level by ordering a SQUARE-PUFF-PASTRY-CRUSTED pizza from Domino’s! The first of it’s kind in Malaysia leh.

Pizza made with Puff Pastry?! Yes, it’s true and here are 6 reasons why you need to try it. Yes, we just did a listicle in a listicle!
Dominos Pizza Malaysia recently launched a pizza that’s made with puff pastry – the same stuff that goes into the buttery, crispy and light croissants! Sounds too good to be true? Well, we decided to give the low down blow by blow here:
1. Instead of your usual round shaped pizzas, these are SQUARE
I know, it’s not everyday you come across a square pizza. I’m just as surprised as you are. It’s both revolutionary and tasty!
2. It is made with layers of butter. Lots of it.
You know why croissants are that good right? They have generous layers of flour and butter slapped on it and then it’s baked to puff-ection. So expect the same for this new crust!
Baked to a tantalizing golden brown, the puff turns into the buttery, crispy and flaky crust that would just melt in your mouth after every bite. What reasons do you have to refuse this wondrous gift?
4. Comes in two new flavours
We obviously ordered the new stuff and to be honest, we were surprised at the generous amount of toppings on these bad boys.
Besides the usual pepperoni and Hawaiian chicken toppings, Malaysians are spoilt with an additional two new irresistible flavours which is their Fiery Beef Diavola and Sriracha Tuna. Just see it for yourself!
Plus, staying true to the Malaysian taste palette, these flavours gives us just the right amount of heat.
5. Belum cuba, belum tahu. Sudah cuba, hari-hari mahu
Domino’s invited 4 people to try their new crust and results were pretty amazing. Even we have tried it for ourselves! Don’t knock it until you tried it tau!

6. Bonus: Have it with any topping you want
Besides that two new flavours, you can actually order the amazing crust with any topping of your choice. Big yay for us ‘cos we love chicken confidential ? Whether you love pepperoni, aloha chicken or the likes, try it with the newest crust instead!
Believe us when we say their layers of high quality butter crusts are to die for!
That puff crust pizza is some next level comfort food right there. And don’t mind us slipping into some food coma right after.
With all these amazing (and sometimes sinful) comfort food, from local dishes, to desserts, to the much loved Pizza (especially with the new ones from Domino’s), we can be sure to count on it to warm our hearts. Sometimes food is not just to fill your hunger, but it’s also to mend your soul as food-therapy is an actual thing.
And if you’re looking for a soul fix right now,
