10 DRINKS YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO TRY IN MALAYSIA

What else is so special about Malaysia beside its beautiful tourism spots and great infrastructure? Yes, you have guessed it right! They are the Malaysian local food and drinks. Being a multicultural country, Malaysia’s diverse community offers a wide variety of drinks to choose from. The influence of this diversity can be traced back to the Sultanate of Malacca era where traders from Europe, Arab and China brought in spices and herbs from their mainland to Malaysia, thus, creating the Malaysian drinks that can be found at the local restaurants and food vendors nowadays. There are ten drinks you absolutely need to try in Malaysia, namely Teh Tarik, Sirap Bandung, Kit Chai Ping, Teh C Peng, Cendol, Air Batu Campur (ABC), Air Mata Kucing, Leng Chee Kang, Milo Dinosaur, Pak-ko-pi and Air Kelapa Bakar.

Teh Tarik

 

What is it? Malaysians consider Teh Tarik as the country’s national drink. Teh Tarik or literally translated as Pulled Tea is a drink that is famous among the Malaysian community. Its origin can be traced back to the Second World War where Indian-Muslim immigrants opened up tea stalls at rubber plantations to serve the workers there.

What is it made of? Teh Tarik is a mixture of black tea with condensed or evaporated milk. The tea used in preparing the drink is grown locally or regionally and has a strong bitter taste. The hot concoction is then pulled back and forth during its preparation between two cups or vessels from a height to release heat which results in a thick, frothy topping.

Where to get it? Teh Tarik can be found at all Malaysian restaurants, especially the Mamak shops (restaurants operated by the Indian-Muslim community). One of the most popular versions of Teh Tarik can be found in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, where Warung Pak Mat is well known for its foamy and extra creamy Teh Tarik Madu.

Sirap Bandung 

What is it? Pink coloured drinks are often associated with strawberries but it is a different case with the one and only, Sirap Bandung, a sweet and creamy drink that is simply irresistible.

What is it made of? Rose flavored syrup is mixed together with condensed or evaporated milk to create the pink coloured drink. There are many versions of Sirap Bandung that can be found throughout Malaysia. One recipe incorporates soda water for a fizzy taste while another adds grass jelly or what Malaysians call Cincau for texture.

Where to get it? This drink is famous and it can be found in almost every restaurant in Malaysia. It is also the drink of choice served at Malay weddings and during the breaking of fast (iftar) in Ramadhan.

Kit Chai Ping 

What is it? When you are in Sabah, be sure to try the modest Kit Chai Ping. This drink is famous for its refreshing properties and Sabahans love to drink it during hot, sunny days. With its sweet, sour and salty taste, the Kit Chai Ping is presumably the ‘national drink’ of Sabah.

What is it made of? The ingredients used to make this drink can be found locally in Malaysia. It is made basically with Kalamansi limes, sugar syrup, water and the Chinese salted sour plums which the locals call Ham Moi. It can also be served chilled by adding ice cubes.

Where to get it? Due to the popularity of this drink, most restaurants and cafes in Sabah have it. You can just go into any restaurants there and simply request for Kit Chai Ping, and on the off chance that you do not like it to be too sweet, say “kurang manis”.

Teh C Peng 

What is it? Talking about ‘national drinks’, if the previous drink is for Sabah, then Teh C Peng would definitely be the ‘national drink’ of Sarawak. This ice-cold drink is also called three-layer tea due to how the different ingredients of the tea are layered in a tall transparent glass. Teh C Peng would make an awesome revitalizing drink particularly on blistering hot days.

What is it made of? There are three main ingredients in Teh C Peng. The bottom layer is liquid palm sugar, over which condensed milk is poured, finished off with a top layer of strong black tea. The density of each ingredients results in the triple layers. One would give it a good mix before enjoying the drink.

Where to get it? This drink has gained popularity over the decades and it can also be found in peninsular Malaysia but if you are looking for the original Teh C Peng, Sarawak is the place to go.

Cendol 

What is it? Who can refuse the flavor of Cendol? A family favourite, Malaysians would queue up in the hot weather just to grab a bowl of Cendol.

What is it made of? A basic bowl of Cendol will have a mountain of finely-shaved ice, generously drizzled with palm sugar syrup and coconut cream. Slivers of green jelly made of rice flour add a nice texture and colour to this sweet dessert. Additional toppings can be requested such as sticky rice, durians or red beans.

Where to get it? According to some people, the best Cendol is in Melaka and Penang but rest assure, it can easily be found at roadside vans that sell rojak or laksa all over Malaysia.

Air Batu Campur 

What is it? Trifles for the Brits, tiramisus for the Italians, crème brulees for the French, banana splits for the Americans, and Malaysians have their own Air Batu Campur, fondly called ABC or sometimes Ais Kacang. The name actually means ‘mixed ice’ and it is one of the most adored dessert drink in Malaysian gastronomic history.

What is it made of? The basic components of a traditional ABC consist of shaved ice and red beans, finished off with a rose or sarsaparilla syrup as the topping. Be that as it may, the current ABC has an assortment of colours and a huge selection of toppings. Nowadays, one can enjoy theirs with frozen yogurt, palm seeds, sweet corn, grass jelly and alongside the syrup, it is ordinarily finished with sweetened condensed or evaporated milk as a final touch.

Where to get it? This dessert drink’s popularity is spread all across Malaysia and can be found everywhere. The hot and humid climate of Malaysia can make everyone dehydrated on a hot scorching day and ABC can simply quench that thirst away.

Air Mata Kucing

 

What is it? A standout among the most well-known drinks in Malaysia is perhaps Air Mata Kucing. It is a natural herbal drink which is nutritious and refreshing, particularly when the sun is blazing. It is no big surprise that Air Mata Kucing anchored the sixth place in the rundown of “50 Most Delicious Drinks From Around The World” by CNN.

What is it made of? The main ingredient of this drink is the Mata Kucing fruit (scientific name: Euphoria malaiense), which belongs to the same family as the Longan fruit. Researchers claim that Mata Kucing can help ease depression, prevent cells from becoming damaged and act as an anti-aging agent.  The other key ingredient is the monk fruit, which gives Air Mata Kucing its dark colour and sweet flavour. The undeniable benefits of monk fruit are widely known in the world of Chinese medicine.

Where to get it? The drink is sold throughout Malaysia but the most famous one is at Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur. During a scorching sunny day, people would queue up in front of the stall just to get a sip of the Air Mata Kucing.

Leng Chee Kang

What is it? Leng Chee Kang is a healthy dessert drink made popular by the Chinese community. Believed to have a cooling effect on the body, it can be served warm or cold and is particularly favoured during hot and humid days. While it is not exactly a Chinese New Year dish, it is one of the most loved treats for numerous celebrations and festivals.

What is it made of? The fundamentals for this dessert drink may differ from place to place yet the primary ingredients used are lotus seeds, longans, dried persimmons and malva nuts, which the Malays call Kembang Semangkuk. Other versions of Leng Chee Kang may contain nuts, grains, quail eggs, collagen, grass jelly and basil seeds.

Where to get it? This dessert drink is famous in Malaysia and it can be found everywhere, not only during the festive seasons. Many restaurants and stalls in Malaysia offer a variety of Leng Chee Kang but the traditional one is always the best!

Pak-Ko-Pi 

What is it? It is a type of coffee that originates from Ipoh, ranked among the top three coffee towns in Asia by Lonely Planet. Truth be told, Ipoh is a popular stopover for people to appreciate nearby attractions and obviously, to take in the taste of that renowned Pak-ko-pi.

What is it made of? Pak-ko-pi is the Cantonese word for white coffee which represents the brewing process of the coffee beans. It is processed without added substances or ingredients. The word white here means that the coffee is unadulterated or pure. The roasting procedure for a standard coffee ordinarily includes roasting the beans with sugars, margarine and wheat. White coffee on the other hand is roasted with margarine, without the sugar, which gives the coffee a lighter colour. When you drink the white coffee, you can taste the diverse layers of flavours in the coffee, which is thick and aromatic.

Where to get it? As mentioned, Ipoh is the city that offers the original white coffee. OldTown White Coffee is one of the Malaysian restaurants that is famous for their white coffee so whenever you happen to be in Ipoh, be sure to try the Pak-ko-pi.

Air Kelapa Bakar

What is it? Those who love the refreshing taste of coconut may want to try the Air Kelapa Bakar version. In addition, those who drink it swear by its medicinal properties in increasing the body’s immune system, preventing diabetes and kidney stones and promoting fertility. They say that the Air Kelapa Bakar has softer coconut flesh, the consistency of jelly.

10 DRINKS YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO TRY IN MALAYSIA

What else is so special about Malaysia beside its beautiful tourism spots and great infrastructure? Yes, you have guessed it right! They are the Malaysian local food and drinks. Being a multicultural country, Malaysia’s diverse community offers a wide variety of drinks to choose from. The influence of this diversity can be traced back to the Sultanate of Malacca era where traders from Europe, Arab and China brought in spices and herbs from their mainland to Malaysia, thus, creating the Malaysian drinks that can be found at the local restaurants and food vendors nowadays. There are ten drinks you absolutely need to try in Malaysia, namely Teh Tarik, Sirap Bandung, Kit Chai Ping, Teh C Peng, Cendol, Air Batu Campur (ABC), Air Mata Kucing, Leng Chee Kang, Milo Dinosaur, Pak-ko-pi and Air Kelapa Bakar.

Teh Tarik

 

What is it? Malaysians consider Teh Tarik as the country’s national drink. Teh Tarik or literally translated as Pulled Tea is a drink that is famous among the Malaysian community. Its origin can be traced back to the Second World War where Indian-Muslim immigrants opened up tea stalls at rubber plantations to serve the workers there.

What is it made of? Teh Tarik is a mixture of black tea with condensed or evaporated milk. The tea used in preparing the drink is grown locally or regionally and has a strong bitter taste. The hot concoction is then pulled back and forth during its preparation between two cups or vessels from a height to release heat which results in a thick, frothy topping.

Where to get it? Teh Tarik can be found at all Malaysian restaurants, especially the Mamak shops (restaurants operated by the Indian-Muslim community). One of the most popular versions of Teh Tarik can be found in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, where Warung Pak Mat is well known for its foamy and extra creamy Teh Tarik Madu.

Sirap Bandung 

What is it? Pink coloured drinks are often associated with strawberries but it is a different case with the one and only, Sirap Bandung, a sweet and creamy drink that is simply irresistible.

What is it made of? Rose flavored syrup is mixed together with condensed or evaporated milk to create the pink coloured drink. There are many versions of Sirap Bandung that can be found throughout Malaysia. One recipe incorporates soda water for a fizzy taste while another adds grass jelly or what Malaysians call Cincau for texture.

Where to get it? This drink is famous and it can be found in almost every restaurant in Malaysia. It is also the drink of choice served at Malay weddings and during the breaking of fast (iftar) in Ramadhan.

Kit Chai Ping 

What is it? When you are in Sabah, be sure to try the modest Kit Chai Ping. This drink is famous for its refreshing properties and Sabahans love to drink it during hot, sunny days. With its sweet, sour and salty taste, the Kit Chai Ping is presumably the ‘national drink’ of Sabah.

What is it made of? The ingredients used to make this drink can be found locally in Malaysia. It is made basically with Kalamansi limes, sugar syrup, water and the Chinese salted sour plums which the locals call Ham Moi. It can also be served chilled by adding ice cubes.

Where to get it? Due to the popularity of this drink, most restaurants and cafes in Sabah have it. You can just go into any restaurants there and simply request for Kit Chai Ping, and on the off chance that you do not like it to be too sweet, say “kurang manis”.

Teh C Peng 

What is it? Talking about ‘national drinks’, if the previous drink is for Sabah, then Teh C Peng would definitely be the ‘national drink’ of Sarawak. This ice-cold drink is also called three-layer tea due to how the different ingredients of the tea are layered in a tall transparent glass. Teh C Peng would make an awesome revitalizing drink particularly on blistering hot days.

What is it made of? There are three main ingredients in Teh C Peng. The bottom layer is liquid palm sugar, over which condensed milk is poured, finished off with a top layer of strong black tea. The density of each ingredients results in the triple layers. One would give it a good mix before enjoying the drink.

Where to get it? This drink has gained popularity over the decades and it can also be found in peninsular Malaysia but if you are looking for the original Teh C Peng, Sarawak is the place to go.

Cendol 

What is it? Who can refuse the flavor of Cendol? A family favourite, Malaysians would queue up in the hot weather just to grab a bowl of Cendol.

What is it made of? A basic bowl of Cendol will have a mountain of finely-shaved ice, generously drizzled with palm sugar syrup and coconut cream. Slivers of green jelly made of rice flour add a nice texture and colour to this sweet dessert. Additional toppings can be requested such as sticky rice, durians or red beans.

Where to get it? According to some people, the best Cendol is in Melaka and Penang but rest assure, it can easily be found at roadside vans that sell rojak or laksa all over Malaysia.

Air Batu Campur 

What is it? Trifles for the Brits, tiramisus for the Italians, crème brulees for the French, banana splits for the Americans, and Malaysians have their own Air Batu Campur, fondly called ABC or sometimes Ais Kacang. The name actually means ‘mixed ice’ and it is one of the most adored dessert drink in Malaysian gastronomic history.

What is it made of? The basic components of a traditional ABC consist of shaved ice and red beans, finished off with a rose or sarsaparilla syrup as the topping. Be that as it may, the current ABC has an assortment of colours and a huge selection of toppings. Nowadays, one can enjoy theirs with frozen yogurt, palm seeds, sweet corn, grass jelly and alongside the syrup, it is ordinarily finished with sweetened condensed or evaporated milk as a final touch.

Where to get it? This dessert drink’s popularity is spread all across Malaysia and can be found everywhere. The hot and humid climate of Malaysia can make everyone dehydrated on a hot scorching day and ABC can simply quench that thirst away.

Air Mata Kucing

 

What is it? A standout among the most well-known drinks in Malaysia is perhaps Air Mata Kucing. It is a natural herbal drink which is nutritious and refreshing, particularly when the sun is blazing. It is no big surprise that Air Mata Kucing anchored the sixth place in the rundown of “50 Most Delicious Drinks From Around The World” by CNN.

What is it made of? The main ingredient of this drink is the Mata Kucing fruit (scientific name: Euphoria malaiense), which belongs to the same family as the Longan fruit. Researchers claim that Mata Kucing can help ease depression, prevent cells from becoming damaged and act as an anti-aging agent.  The other key ingredient is the monk fruit, which gives Air Mata Kucing its dark colour and sweet flavour. The undeniable benefits of monk fruit are widely known in the world of Chinese medicine.

Where to get it? The drink is sold throughout Malaysia but the most famous one is at Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur. During a scorching sunny day, people would queue up in front of the stall just to get a sip of the Air Mata Kucing.

Leng Chee Kang

What is it? Leng Chee Kang is a healthy dessert drink made popular by the Chinese community. Believed to have a cooling effect on the body, it can be served warm or cold and is particularly favoured during hot and humid days. While it is not exactly a Chinese New Year dish, it is one of the most loved treats for numerous celebrations and festivals.

What is it made of? The fundamentals for this dessert drink may differ from place to place yet the primary ingredients used are lotus seeds, longans, dried persimmons and malva nuts, which the Malays call Kembang Semangkuk. Other versions of Leng Chee Kang may contain nuts, grains, quail eggs, collagen, grass jelly and basil seeds.

Where to get it? This dessert drink is famous in Malaysia and it can be found everywhere, not only during the festive seasons. Many restaurants and stalls in Malaysia offer a variety of Leng Chee Kang but the traditional one is always the best!

Pak-Ko-Pi 

What is it? It is a type of coffee that originates from Ipoh, ranked among the top three coffee towns in Asia by Lonely Planet. Truth be told, Ipoh is a popular stopover for people to appreciate nearby attractions and obviously, to take in the taste of that renowned Pak-ko-pi.

What is it made of? Pak-ko-pi is the Cantonese word for white coffee which represents the brewing process of the coffee beans. It is processed without added substances or ingredients. The word white here means that the coffee is unadulterated or pure. The roasting procedure for a standard coffee ordinarily includes roasting the beans with sugars, margarine and wheat. White coffee on the other hand is roasted with margarine, without the sugar, which gives the coffee a lighter colour. When you drink the white coffee, you can taste the diverse layers of flavours in the coffee, which is thick and aromatic.

Where to get it? As mentioned, Ipoh is the city that offers the original white coffee. OldTown White Coffee is one of the Malaysian restaurants that is famous for their white coffee so whenever you happen to be in Ipoh, be sure to try the Pak-ko-pi.

Air Kelapa Bakar

What is it? Those who love the refreshing taste of coconut may want to try the Air Kelapa Bakar version. In addition, those who drink it swear by its medicinal properties in increasing the body’s immune system, preventing diabetes and kidney stones and promoting fertility. They say that the Air Kelapa Bakar has softer coconut flesh, the consistency of jelly.

What is it made of? Fresh young coconuts are roasted whole inside a hearth or on a grill for up to four hours until the coconut water inside has boiled. Afterwards the coconut is left to cool before it is cut open and served. Some people drink it with a dash of powdered herbs – cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, and clove – to enhance the taste and aroma.

Where to get it? Popular since 2009, this drink can be found mainly in Sabah and on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is often sold at roadside stalls for RM 4.00 or RM 5.00.
