IKAN ASSAM PEDAS: This Spicy Sour Fish is the most popular dish in Malacca and also in every state in Malaysia, we can replace the fish for okra and long beans if you are vegetarian. 2 KARI AYAM: Malaya Chicken Curry is another main national dish but we can replace the chicken by potatoes and chickpeas for vegetarians. If you are sensitive to the curry we can replace the whole dish by Arabian Chicken Stew which is our own signature. 3. NASI KABSAH: This special rice is cooked in chicken bones, fresh tomatoes, dry spices and some green herbal leaves. but for vegetarian we can provide a different dish known as NASI TOMATO, this Tomato Rice is a traditional dish and it contains no animal-based ingredients except milk. We cook in fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon- grass and pandan leaves. Another Rice from NASI LEMAK is also another option for vegetarians; it is cooked with fresh ginger, fresh coconut milk, panadan leaves, onions, ginger and lemon grass. 4. TERUNG DAN UBI GORENG BERLADA: This FRIED EGGPLANT AND POTATOs is very delicious in thick but rich moderately spiced sauce. We reduce the chili contents according to our guests requests.

PINEAPPLE AND CUCUMBER SALAD: True Malaysian salad good for steamy weather. 7. PINGAT PISANG DAN UBI: A traditional dessert from sweet potatoes, bananas and sago all are fresh and good for health. 8. TRADITIONAL SAMBAL: Is good for appetizing, it is not a dish but very hot sauce freshly made from a mixture of variety of chili peppers with other ingredients such as, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, palm sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or any white vinegar. It is good to use teaspoon and put little on any food while eating. More

Learn to cook Malay dishes in a comfortable environment.
I chose the Os Family House for the cooking class option. I was not disappointed. That morning I cooked 7 dishes with the assistance of Mr. Os's wife. Considerable prepatory work had been done so that we could cook all dishes in time. The ingredients were all laid out in an orderly fashion and the cooking tasks were well sequenced. I had asked that I be instructed in Malay although both are perfectly fluent English speakers. We sat down to a bountiful and delicious dinner together. The Os family know how to welcome guests well. For foreign guests they provide a wonderful opportunity to experience Malay family life.
