Little Malaysia: delicious Malaysian food in Melbourne

If you’re looking for a change from the usual Thai/Vietnamese/Chinese cuisine, why not Malaysian? We found this small Malaysian restaurant called Little Malaysia tucked away on a side street in Melbourne’s central business district. It’s not fancy, but the food is very good. My favorites are the beef rendang (pictured below) and the tiny dried anchovies with sambal (it reminds me of a similar dish called dilis in the Philippines except we do not eat it with spicy sauces). The satay (grilled meat on a skewer) is excellent; the curries are rich and savoury.
