Malaysia Boleh! Locations & Outlets

Malaysia Boleh! features famous Malaysia dishes from the north to the south – prawn noodles soup from Penang, claypot rice from Johor Bahru and Bak Kut Teh from Klang.

One of the main draw of Malaysia Boleh! is that their food is prepared from secret recipes of famous Malaysian street hawkers. These hawkers have at least 20 years of experience and have been carefully selected by the Fei Siong Group to be sold under the brand. There is a range of around 20 stalls and pushcarts at each Malaysia Boleh! outlet, all done up in a vintage style. The interior walls are painstakingly decorated to look like the facade of a row of old shop houses. Once inside Malaysia Boleh!, you can feel the nostalgic street-like ambience reminiscent of the 1960s.

Malaysia Boleh! has two sister brands – Malaysia Chiak! and Boleh Boleh!. The former is a scaled-down version with lesser stalls and menu items, while the latter offers a halal-certified menu.

Malaysia Boleh! Review (AMK Hub)

Malaysia Boleh! is located on Basement 1 of AMK Hub, next to the entrance of NTUC Fairprice Xtra. The food court includes has a dining area that is estimated to accommodate around 100 diners.

We visited the food court on a Saturday afternoon around 4pm but the dining area was surprisingly full. As such, we decided to order take-aways for a Fried Carrot Cake ($3.00), and a 4 pieces Apom ($2.00). We did not order more as we have already tried their Popiah, Chendol, Claypot Rice and Prawn Mee Soup at Malaysia Chiak! previously.

The Fried Carrot Cake, known in Malaysia as Char Koay Kak 炒粿角 in Hokkien, was fried to order while the Apom was already premade and placed at the stall counter. It took about 5 minutes for our carrot cake to be ready. We took about 30 minutes to reach home and the carrot cake was still warm but the Apom was already cold. The carrot cake or Koay Kak has a strong fried and charred flavor like you would typically get with fried kway tiao. It resembles the taste of the Char Koay Kak we had from a hawker pushcart along Lorong Baru in Penang (New Lane Street Food Stalls). Different from Singaporean carrot cake, the Malaysia rendition uses less egg, has larger pieces of the carrot cake, and includes beansprouts as part of the ingredients.

The Apom was a disappointment and we do not recommend trying it. Its fillings include little bits of shredded coconut with a small teaspoon of paste (we are unsure what it is made of). Apom Balik in Malaysia is typically filled with corn and peanuts but they were not used in this case. A Singaporean Min Jiang Kueh from Jollibean beats it hands down.

In summary, we were happy with the main dish and the experience at its food court, except for the taste of the Apom. We give its dining environment and value-for-money a 4/5, their service a 3.5/5, and their food quality a 3.5/5.
