A Malaysian Feast

Here's my first attempt at making an infographic as a thank you for the wonderful feast prepared and served at the Tourism Malaysia offices in London recently.

Click on the names of the dishes under the Recipes heading text to take you to the recipes. Note the Pandan cake calls for the leaves or juice of the Pandanus amaryllifolius plant. I'll let you know if I find a UK source - a Chinese supermarket perhaps?

Thanks to Tourism Malaysia for a wonderful meal and presentation on their country's incredible biodiversity - it's definitely one for my travel bucket list now.


  1. It's brilliant, well done you. Glad you had a good time, the food looks delicious. CJ xx

    1. Thanks CJ, it was surprisingly easy to do. The food was as delicious as it looks :)

    1. It was an amazing meal and their fifth floor had a wonderful view over to Nelson's Column. Definitely a 'pinch me I'm here' moment :)

  3. Goodness, you do get about! Now, wouldn't it have been great to be invited over to Malaysia itself to sample the food - maybe next on your agenda? International Veg Plotting! :o) xx

    1. This was on the same day as Buckingham Palace, Caro. Looking back I can't believe how much I packed into 24 hours in London - there was King's Cross Pond Club and a quick viewing of the living wall at the Athanaeum Hotel as well!

    2. Goodness, your energy is boundless! If that had been me, I'd have needed a long lie down or at least a nice long soak in a hot bath at the end of such a day! x

    3. I confess - I had a little nap in Trafalgar Square whilst waiting for the Malaysia presentation. I had intended to pop into the National Gallery!

  4. What a super visit. Just love Malaysian food, Did you think about John Noakes precariously climbing up over the edge of Nelson's column while you looked at the view? It really is high, isn't it?

    1. I spent quite some time in Trafalgar Square before the presentation cursing I couldn't take a picture of it as it was so high. Imagine my delight to find the perfect view of it from the fifth floor, with everyone in the square looking like oversized ants :)

      I love Malaysian food too. I'm hoping I can find a source of the leaves I need for the cake. It might be too flimsy an excuse for a visit my friend in Kuala Lumpur if I can't get any, what do you think?

  5. Thank you for such a lovely write up about the food and hospitality during the Birdfair Seminar at Tourism Malaysia recently. I am glad that you enjoyed the food and the view from the topmost conference room. I wish I could served more variety of food for you to taste especially the Satay. Maybe on another occassion.

    Just to let you know that you can get the Pandan leaves at most Chinese Supermarkets in the UK especially in London such as See Woo, Wing Yip, New Loon Moon etc.

    By the way, the recipe of the Pandan Cake you offer is not the ssame as the Malay Pandan Cake I made that day. PM me if you need a good Malay Pandan Cake recipe.

    Thank you again and hope we can meet up for another food tasting event. Best regards, Omel Elias

    1. Fantastic Omel, thank you. It was a wonderful feast. I'm looking forward to making some authentic Pandan cake soon :)
