Out & about: Malay Village, Sydney Chinatown

a1 Malay Village, Sydney Chinatown

Two weekends ago, we had a weekend getaway to Sydney. It has been a while since our last visit and we intentionally planned a trip which coincided with Chinese New Year. Sydney Chinatown is the place to be if you wish to experience the vibrance and festivity of Chinese New Year which includes the lion dance, firecrackers, parades and night markets. We went to Malay Village on 1 Dixon Street (cnr Goulburn Street) Sydney Chinatown for a Malaysian feast. This may not your typical food to celebrate Chinese New Year but I really missed Malaysian street food. We went for their teh tarik (“pulled milk tea”), roti canai and Hokkien mee. Dishes which reminded me of home and more.

      Ya, finally found the courage to put a photo up hehe! Yes the roti was pretty authentic. I am pretty happy to discover another Malaysian restaurant other than Mamak. Looking forward to try more dishes from there :)

    Hi there,

    The prawn noodle soup looks fab! I went there a while back and had the kang kong belacan and some other stuff but found the teh tarik super sweet.

    Was yours OK or was it too sweet?

      Mine was not too sweet. In fact I have found that their teh tarik was not as sweet as Mamak. :)
