Malaymas

There’s something slightly sickening about the yellow and orange waves adorning the window at Malaymas. Crossing to the other side of the bile ocean I was very happy to be proven wrong. This North Fitzroy restaurant is filled with relaxed diners, polite waiters and the amazing smells of hawker-style Malaysian food.

Malaymas isn’t licensed but has a long list of sweet iced drinks. The Iced Rose Lemon Drink ($4) is definitely interesting; reminiscent of those pre-liquor green-tongued days of sugar-highs. When the extra-spicy food came it was the perfect counterpoint, cutting through the spice completely. Much more fun than a glass of soy milk.

The Roti bread with Chanai Kosong (Coconut Curry Sauce $4.2) grows on you with each dip. Again, appearances were deceiving. Belachan Eggplant ($11.9) looks just like a mud-pie (for want of a more polite analogy) but tastes amazing. The Vegetarian Laksa ($10.9) is huge, fresh and spicy – everything a good laksa should be.

The biggest surprise is dessert. I’d been watching a waitress turn the handle on a strange, pink machine all night. It turned out she was making Ice Kacang ($6.5). This concoction comprises of jelly and red beans in the centre, palm seeds as a base and a mound of shaved ice, coloured syrups and condensed milk on top. I could see this dessert becoming very addictive. I’ll definitely be back.

Somewhere Else video sings of summer

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
