Straits Kitchen Editor’s Pick
This spice-simmering cart imports the heady flavors of “Straits Chinese” cooking found along the western coast of Malaysia. Dishes thrum with heat, tang, and shrimp paste funk, from a generous bowl of noodles in smoldering, turmeric-stained coconut curry to the Malay version of chicken nuggets—juicy bites marinated in eight secret spices and tossed with punchy soy-lime sauce.
