Traveling is not only about getting to know new places, people or local nature. Food is also an important part to get to know the place we are staying better. Below we will list a few of the types of food that you must try during your stay in Langkawi.


Typical street-food in Langkawi – delicious meat skewers with turmeric and peanut sauce.


A type of curry stew where the finely chopped meat is cooked with the curry for a long time until it is soaked with flavor and the sauce is practically evaporated. The dish is served with rice and if you like spicier food, you can add sambal sauce.

Ais Kacang

Dessert based on finely chopped ice, poured with sweet fruit syrup with the addition of jelly, corn, peanuts and beans.


Something for seafood lovers. It is a type of soup based on fish or prawns, with thick homemade noodles and the addition of, for example, a boiled egg.

Ikan Bakar

It literally means “burnt fish”, but fortunately it is only grilled fish, previously marinated and served with a spicy sauce.

Nasi Campur

It’s just a mix of rice and various additives, such as chicken, tofu and vegetables.
