Each of the fifty-plus items on Red Kwalis menu claims a different point of origin. The roti canai, for example, are described as Indian, the chick kut teh as Penang Chinese Nyonya. In other words, theyre all authentically Malaysian. In re-creating the gastronomic experience of a Malaysian food court, Red Kwali gets it right. The cooks suffuse bold, rich flavors into Westerner-friendly dishes like chicken satay and beef rendang as well as more pungent, and challenging, national dishes like rice noodles with mackerel-tamarind gravy and water spinach with shrimp paste and chiles.
