10 Most Popular Ramadan Food in Malaysia

Many have claimed that Malaysians are more passionate about their food than their politics.
Well, it's true. Here, food is the peacekeeper - the most effective unifying factor among the diverse multiracial communities.

Take Ramadan for example. It is a month when the Muslims fast, but once the sun sinks beneath the horizon, Malaysians come together regardless of race and culture to enjoy a scrumptious meal which very often is accompanied by laughter and cordiality.

Ramadan Kareem to all my Muslim friends!
In this holy month, may your days be graced with an abundance of blessings and warmth.
