Try the Rojak, a sweet savory salad with a shrimp paste topping. Or there is the cendol a cold dessert soup, a condensed milk sweet treat that is served over ice to keep you cool in the hot evenings. Or if you are need of something a little more savory grab some Koay Chiap, a real Malaysian delicacy. It's basically duck and noodles in broth but also contain a soy sauce cooked egg and the add blood to the soup to give it added flavor. One delicate that you must not miss if the crazy and soft Apom Balick. A pancake made of rice flour with creamed corn, the combination of textures is so good.

Remember that you are expected to buy food from the street vendors and then take it in with you to the cafes surrounding them. There you can grab a coffee or malted drink to have with your meal.
