Ya-Malaysia – Chatswood Interchange

I love hearing about new Malaysian restaurants because I’m tired of people never having experienced Malaysian food or getting it confused for Thai, Indonesian or Mongolian (yep) cuisine. (Don’t even get me started on Crispy Rendang-gate.)

Anyhow thanks to the champion networking skills of my long-time collaborator Alexx of MyBlueTea.com.au, I was invited to sample the food at Ya-Malaysia’s most recent outlet located in the Chatswood Interchange upstairs food court.

It was a great opportunity for me to catch up with some old associates and meet some new ones, many of whom were from my new Facebook community for existing or would-be food entrepreneurs (if that sounds like you, click on bit.ly/jackiemgroup – and ask to join).

Pictured below are some of the dishes our group of 60-odd devoured – Hainanese rice with fried chicken, a spicy mee goreng (right heat level for me, but if feeding your kids, you might want to ask them to hold the chilli), sambal fried chicken (this exceeded my chilli threshold but two of the other guests at my table ate every last scrap), nasi goreng, and the pièce de résistance, black pepper mud crab.

Baby Noah’s antics aside (he tried to run away, and he knocked some of Alexx’s blue flower products off one of the seats), it was an enjoyable afternoon of conversations around food with friends from all over Sydney. I’m looking forward to my next visit to Ya-Malaysia , this time to savour some of their other menu offerings.
