Laksa , Nasi Lemak and Bak Kut Teh

Laksa Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak and Bak Kut Teh Tarik.

I was attracted to this headline in The Star Laksa and Nasi Lemak among our pride, says Yen Yen. Some coincidence with the tittle my xperienceoflife's blog : Nasi Lemak, Roti Canai Teh Tarik. Only one resemble 100% but the other just at the source. I don't think laksa can be listed as one of our pride since it still has not become a 24 hours food listed on the menu. Roti canai, Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik is the most mentioned word when people wanted to go and do some chilling. These food is synonimous with Malaysians. Someone who has been abroad for sometimes and when he/she comes back will look for Roti Canai and Teh Tarik to fulfil the "lust" for local snacks. Maybe for other than Muslims, Bak Kut Teh can be another high in demand drink.

Yen Yen as reported by The Star says verbatim;

We cannot continue to let other countries hijack our food. Chilli crab is Malaysian. Hainanese chicken rice is Malaysian. We have to lay claim to our food,” she told reporters after launching the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival yesterday.

Waa..... something that look like retaliation to the Indonesian claim that lead to the protest "Sweeping Malaysia"

It is a good move that we have to claim local food as our own identity but further investigation has to be done to justify that a particular food is really Malaysians. Food is a universal gourmet. We might have the same food but called by another name and then it will be a clash of identity.

Just wonder is Teh Tarik  a local beverage...............

Roti Canai from Chennei, but Tea is a global drink. To tarik the tea must be investigated.
