This New Bugis Food Court Has Malaysian Night Market Vibes And 12 Different Stalls

22nd July 2022

Malaysia Boleh! at Bugis Junction

malaysia boleh - flatlayWe get it, Malaysia is just a skip and a hop away, but sometimes you get an itch for Malaysian hawker food, and you need to scratch it without delay. Joining the list of places where you can find Malaysian grub right here in Singapore is Malaysia Boleh! at Bugis Junction━the food court’s fourth such location.

malaysia boleh - storefront

Situated on the third floor of the busy mall, you’ll not have any trouble finding Malaysia Boleh!, with its ultra-colourful LED trees and super-vibrant night market do-up. In fact, the pushcart-themed stalls and brightly lit signages will bring Jalan Alor to mind, if you’ve been to the famous street market.

With a whopping 12 stalls in the food court, this Malaysia Boleh! stars five stalls that are making their first appearance in Singapore: KL Da Pai Dang, Ipoh Zai Mixed Veg Rice, Sei Ngan Zai Roast Duck, MY Seremban Beef Noodles, and Ipoh White Coffee.

malaysia boleh - sei ngan zai

Dang Gui Duck is a dish many of us are familiar with━at Sei Ngan Zai, you can order this along with dishes from the collection of other Malaysian food stalls, and at nett prices too! A Quarter Duck here is $13, which you can get alongside their Signature Noodle ($6.50).

Roasted according to traditional methods and spices imported directly from Malaysia, this noodle dish comes with KL-style fatty char siew, lup cheong, wonton, and QQ noodles tossed in a Sichuan pepper-tinged, dark soya sauce blend.

malaysia boleh - my seremban beef noodles dry

There’s also Mixed Beef Noodles (from $7.50) or Sliced Beef Noodles (from $6.50) that you can choose to have dry or in soup from MY Seremban Beef Noodles. Seldom seen locally is the dry version, where you’ll get a dark, starchy gravy that’s made with a base of beef stock, boiled for at least two hours.

Cooked to a perfect semi-rare pink doneness, you can dip the beef slices into the accompanying chinchalok chilli for a spicy kick.

malaysia boleh - kl da pai dang petai prawns sambal stingray

Other goodies you can get here without having to drive over three hours into KL include zi char from Jalan Alor at KL Da Pai Dang, where the menu features highlights such as BBQ Sambal Stingray ($15/$20), BBQ Sambal Prawn with Petai ($15/$20), and even herbal Premium Bak Kut Teh ($10).

Coated in a thick layer of piquant, lightly charred sambal are extra fleshy cuts of stingray━you won’t get stringy, emaciated fish here.

malaysia boleh - kl da pai dang wings

BBQ meals aren’t really complete without the requisite chicken wings, so rest assured you can get these here too! At $3.80 for two whole wings, these barbecued chicken wings definitely complete the experience. With the air-conditioned comfort at Malaysia Boleh!, this might be preferable to streetside dining in KL for many of us.

malaysia boleh - kl da pai dang claypot rice

If BKT and BBQ aren’t your thing, there’s also Claypot Chicken Rice ($5.50) to consider instead. Cooked to order with well-marinated chicken pieces, don’t forget to dig right to the bottom for the precious charred bits!

malaysia boleh - ipoh zai

There’s your standard food court cai fan, and then there’s Ipoh Zai Mixed Veg Rice, hailing all the way from Ipoh. Get Braised Pork ($2.50), Salted Egg Chicken Cutlet ($2.50), Curry Chicken ($1.30) and more with your rice!

Chef Chan, who started out as a roadside hawker in Ipoh, firmly believes in using only the freshest ingredients for the cai fan at his stall. He comes up with seasonal specials on top of the daily selection of dishes, according to the produce his suppliers have.

malaysia boleh - char kuay teow

One of the most popular dishes across the Malaysia Boleh! outlets is their Char Kuay Teow ($5), and so if you haven’t already been to any of the others, you can order it at Bugis Junction too.

malaysia boleh - kopi jelly

Food aside, if you haven’t had Ipoh White Coffee ($2) before, let Malaysia Boleh! be your initiation to this drink. Traditionally brewed with coffee beans roasted with margarine, you can even order a version here that’s served Iced with Coffee Jelly ($3).

malaysia boleh - 3 layer iced tea

Where there’s kopi, there’s also teh: order the Iced 3 Layer Milk Tea ($3.30), which comes in three aesthetically pleasing layers of gula melaka, milk, and freshly brewed tea.

malaysia boleh - ham and cheese thick toast

Pair your drink with an Ice Cream with Gula Melaka Thick Toast ($2.80) for an ultra sweet end to the meal; alternatively, snack on Ham with Cheese Thick Toast ($3.50) for an indulgent bite.

Besides all of these, look forward to Chilli Ban Mian ($5), Penang Assam Laksa ($4.50), Ah Piao Kway Teow Soup ($4.50), and Yong Peng Fried Fish Ball, which serves economic bee hoon with ngoh hiang and more!
