What is Malaysian and Singaporean street food? To me, it is ready-to-eat food sold in a market, hawker centre or food court in Malaysia and Singapore. They are fast food and cost less than restaurant food. The variety of street food is vast but only the common ones are available in Adelaide's food courts, cafes and restaurants.
Char Kway Teow (stir fried rice noodles), Chicken Rice, Roast Pork Rice, BBQ Pork Rice, Laksa (coconut-based curry noodle soup), Nasi Lemak (coconut milk rice) and Roti Prata/Canai (Asian Pancake) are street food that are offered at most of the Malaysian/Singaporean eating places in Adelaide.
Within walking distance of Rundle Mall are Penang Restaurant at Gilbert Place and Mamak Corner at Bank Street. Dishes sold at Penang Restaurant includes Penang Laksa (noodles in spicy fish broth), a unique Penang dish and Bak Kut Teh (pork ribs in herbal soup); while Mamak Corner specialises in Roti Canai and Nasi Lemak.
Just outside the city in Norwood is an eating place that has the most authentic Singapore BBQ Pork Rice that my family has tasted so far. Chicken Rice Restaurant on The Parade is located across the road from Hoyts Norwood and is a convenient place to catch a bite before or after a movie.
