ShopeeFood Users Reveal Food Malaysians Love To Eat Most

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ As a typical foodie, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜‹ would like to share about the best-rated ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป restaurants across locations in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ which being revealed by ShopeeFood users recently ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“ฒ

The cultural diversity of Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ in many ways has influenced our unique flavours & ingredients. An amalgamation of Chinese, Indian, Malay & Borneo flavours, our taste buds are constantly tickled by a variety matched perhaps by no other place on earth

Which brought ShopeeFood to survey our cities for the best 5๏ธโƒฃ-star cuisines as rated by ShopeeFood users. During its last 3๏ธโƒฃ major campaigns, such as the 9.9 Shopping Day, 10.10 Brand Sale & 11.11 Big Sale, ShopeeFood gathered data on food trends to find out what Malaysians loved to eat. Measured based on the most frequently ordered items on the ShopeeFood app ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“ฒ, the survey showed 2๏ธโƒฃ clear favourites: rice-based dishes & fried chicken

There is no denying that rice ๐Ÿš is the heartland of this country. Aside from the multitudes of paddy fields across the nation, rice is our staple food, incorporated in our baby food, snacks, desserts & almost every meal. Whether itโ€™s Chinese-style bowls of steaming rice ๐Ÿš, or the ever-famous Indian banana leaf meal & not forgetting our beloved Malaysian Nasi Lemak, rice is in the DNA of Malaysia & its people ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

While Roti Canai may have hit the top spot on ShopeeFoodโ€™s top 5๏ธโƒฃ cuisines survey, rice-based dishes & some form of fried chicken ๐Ÿ— are abundantly featured in our food trends. Chicken dishes especially fried chicken ๐Ÿ— not surprisingly also came out top in the best 5๏ธโƒฃ stars cuisine found on the ShopeeFood app ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“ฒ Fried chicken is a treat savoured by young & old alike ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป For some, fried chicken was a treat enjoyed during large weekly family gatherings or just as a workday lunch or dinner.

According to a survey in 2021, Malaysians are the 3๏ธโƒฃrd highest chicken consumers in the world ๐ŸŒ with almost 50kg of chicken consumed per year, per person *1. While it does not close in on the 82.3 kilograms of rice a Malaysian eats per year *2, for a population of just over 32 million people to be the 3rd highest chicken consumer in the world goes to show how much Malaysians love their chicken

We are not biassed either. Whether itโ€™s Ayam Goreng Berempah or the latest Korean-style fried chicken, Malaysians love their chicken  ๐Ÿ— in every way they can get it. Today we have hundreds of different styles of chicken at our fingertips ~ Whether in person or online at ShopeeFood, the list is endless
