Malay cuisine can be best described as a melting pot of flavours borrowed from India, China, Middle East and some European countries surrounding the Malay Archipelago. From the tantalising laksa to the soulful curry roti—as delicious as authentic Malay food is, it’s equally hard to find in India. However, The Oberoi, Bengaluru has brought forth an unmissable opportunity to experience the taste of Kuala Lumpur in the heart of the city.
