Malaysia Kitchen Australia

Coffee, cake and brunch are some of the MANY things that the Hey Bambini team gets to dabble in weekly, and when l say 'team' l mean my 2 son's, hubby and myself - huge team hey! My main passion and number one focus is finding child friendly cafes for families to experience and enjoy.

So when l was approached to be a Malaysian Kitchen Ambassador l was immediately intrigued, excited and thrilled that l was asked. You see l know LOADS about cafes but no so much about the Malaysian cuisine. l love eating Asian food (Japanese and Vietnamese are my personal favourites) - in fact they're high on the list of things that l enjoy to eat, but l haven't eaten a lot of Malaysian food. Sure l backpacked around Malaysia 10 years ago and enjoyed the food, but heaven help me if l can remember what l ate! Our diet at that time was mainly a 'liquid' diet if you get my drift...

Monday night was launch night at the Malaysian restaurant Laksa Me in Chinatown. l adore walking into Chinatown, the amazing cooking smells that float down the street get my mouth watering in an instant. At the restaurant l got to met some fellow Malaysian Kitchen Ambassadors which included the lovely Megan, Christine, Carly, Candice and Karen who also have fabulous and inspiring blogs. (Pop on over for a cheeky peek!)

Our delicious banquet had us literally all rolling out the door and Chef Allan Woo was a delightful soul. Allan was only too happy to share with his passion and stories of Malaysian food, which l found fascinating. Allan touched on a brief history about Malaysia as a country and of course all the lovely ingredients that go into traditional Malaysian dishes. I enjoyed seeing his passion for cooking and hearing about all the different cooking processes and the love that goes into his Malaysian food.

It was truly inspiring and l can't WAIT to get out there and try some more Malaysian food. So as a newly appointed Malaysian Kitchen Ambassador l order thee to go forth and experience with me the colourful, the spicy and the delicious world of Malaysian food! Oh wait a moment - l'd love to bring you all along to each and every restaurant l get to try but sadly l cannot. So stay tuned for my adventures, they say you eat with your eyes so l will be bringing to you loads of lovely foodie snaps and details of all the Malaysian restaurants we get to experience and enjoy, hopefully some family friendly!
