Kaki Lima Cafe
Kaki Lima means "mobile food" - the cuisine here is based on the food served from Malaysia's roadside food carts. Its authenticity is verified by the fact that Milo has a prominent place on the menu. Yes, this humble Aussie-made malt drink is a veritable institution in Malaysia. Hordes of Malaysian students flock to Kaki Lima's simple, communal dining room for pre-lecture meals of nasi lemak (coconut rice with curry), martabak (a flaky roti parcel filled with beef, eggs and onions) and Penang laksa, a sour, tamarind-tinged version of the famous soup. An acquired taste perhaps, but very good. For something resembling a Western-style breakfast, try the roti bakar: grilled bread slathered in butter and coconut jam. Not exactly healthy, but it's damned delicious.

The best Malay food in Sydney. Some kuih are even better than the same in Malaysia. Try their roti canai, penang laksa, the tarek, and kuih lopis. yum!

the price is not cheap for a cafe. The nasi lemak (coconut flavoured rice with chicken/beef rendang or curries)is the BEST in Sydney !!!(The beef of the nasi lemak though at times can be too dry after sitting under that bane marie light).The penang laksa is very nice but spicy and hot (I always ask for more 'hekoh' (malaysian black prawn paste). The kueh are lovely but I'd wished they would put less colouring.
