All of the dishes were exceptionally interesting in it's own way. Our Malaysian dishes are always made with strong and pungent flavours, which is so much different as compared to Mexican dishes. You don't find the strong sambal belacan-like flavour in the dishes, but instead every mouthful comes with a hint of sweet and sour flavouring from all the tomatoes that they have incorporated into the dish.

Anyway, if you are interested in being part of the Flavours of Mexico IV week, you can always explore this multi-dimensional cuisine at Sentidos Gastrobar - The Latin Grill located at Feast Village Starhill Gallery. They offer three or four-course menus featuring all the fresh herbs and spices from Mexico, providing you a holistic Latin experience right here in KL.
