Malacca Straits on Broadway
We didn’t know about this before and we’re sorta kicking ourselves for eating crappy eats in and around the area when we could have been eating here. Welcome to our new favourite Malaysian joint. Malacca Straits on Broadway. Its actually a lot more like “Malacca Straits hidden in Broadway”. This is one of those eateries everyone should know about because the food’s actually pretty damn terrific. Discovering this now also makes us think, well what about that spice alley? This is now the new go-to. Hidden behind that stretch of shops that you’ll see down george/parramatta road (that all seem mostly unappealing) lies this hidden gem. Their $10 buck eats for lunch are all bangingly good and delicious and quite easily some of the most flavoursome Malaysian eats you’ll get this side of Sydney. Roti? Dammmn good
It’s not ultra flashy. Hidden in the apartment complex block – head inwards and you’ll find Malacca Straits
$10. Hainanese Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak with Beef Rendang, Char Keow Tway, Roti with Chicken Curry, Laksa. We really quite liked all the options we got into here. The Hainanese Chicken Rice is silken with a good broth and fragrant rice. Their Nasi Lemak is abundant with killer beef rendang. Roti is unbelievably good. Better than Mamak? They don’t fluff it up like Mamak does but the dough is crispy and flakes and that with the curry? Bliss.
They’ve got rootbeer.
Compellingly authentic, priced like you wouldn’t believe, Malacca Straits is the business.
