Do you know much about Malaysian food? If not, head to Jom Makan … literal translation, ‘Let’s Go Eat’.
Opened very recently in Westfield Stratford, Jom Makan offers menus packed full with Malaysian family recipes, Kuala Lumpur street food and a whole host of dishes produced as a result of Western fusion.
Popular so far are Nasi Lemak Ayam, (a mixed plate of coconut rice and chicken rendang with a hard boiled egg and sprinkled with crispy fried anchovies, peanuts and spring onions, £8.90) and Roti Canai (traditional Malaysian griddled flat bread, £2.00).
But there’s much more than just that to try. There are overwhelmingly large sharing menus for £22 and the addictive Kek Choklat (chocolate brownie with fresh lychee and grapes, £3.60) for those looking to indulge in pudding.
Give it a go. And if Westfield Stratford is too far for you .. Jom Makan can also be found at the other Westfield … and in Soho, too.
