Chin Yen

Welcome to Taste of Malaysia! I’m Chin Yen, a passionate Malaysian foodie who loves discovering and writing about the diverse cuisine my country has to offer.

As a local food-obsessed explorer, I enjoy seeking out little-known eateries and hawker stalls in search of hidden gems that serve authentic, delicious Malaysian fare. I get excited about finding those hole-in-the-wall spots off the beaten path that offer traditional recipes, family cooking, and an intimate dining experience.

At the same time, I stay up-to-date on the ever-evolving Kuala Lumpur dining scene, scouting out new restaurants making creative innovations on classic Malaysian cuisine. I’m eager to be one of the first to try modern interpretations of my favorite childhood dishes.

On my blog, you can read my expert opinions on meals I’ve had through brutally honest restaurant reviews. I’ll tell you exactly what dishes to order (and which to avoid!) to have the best dining experience possible. I also provide location guides to Malaysia’s top foodie hotspots like Penang’s Little India, so you can indulge in a feast of flavors all in one place.

As a service, I make it a point to provide updated menus and prices from eateries across Malaysia. This way, food lovers like me have all the details before visiting so there are no surprise bills!

Join me on my continuing culinary adventures throughout Malaysia as I uncover hidden gems, review the hottest new restaurants, and share the tastes that make me proud to call this diverse country home. Let’s eat!
