Petaling Street Malaysian Hawker Food
760 George St
Haymarket, Sydney CBD

Petaling Street Malaysian Hawker Food is a popular place - and this is not surprisingly really as it has very good food in large quantities at very reasonable prices.

It's deceptively big as there's a ground floor level and a lower level too - but you do have to go inside before you see that there's a downstairs section. It stays true to its street food concept and doesn't overdo things in terms of decor and adornments. There's an extensive menu to choose from and with the varieties available it is great for groups.

The servings are huge too - we over ordered quite a bit - and you don't have to wait long for your food either - which works well if you're heading off somewhere else afterwards.

One of the staples of Malaysian food is their nasi goreng which is a tasty combination fried rice dish.

This version was served with egg, sprouts and onion stirred through it together with and plenty of seafood there as well.

You can sometimes just have this dish as a meal on its own or as a side - as we had planned - with other dishes.

We just can't resist roti. It's such a delicious treat with other dishes or even on its own.

The roti kosong here is described in the menu as hand made flaky bread that comes with a side serving of curry sauce.

We love roti so much we even ordered a few extra servings of just the roti. This version was certainly nice and flaky with great buttery flavours and very tasty.

We decided we wanted a combo type of meal and the combination fried crispy noodle sounded good. 

It came with crispy egg noodle served with beef, chicken, prawn, BBQ pork and vegetables in a tangy and tasty sauce. We loved the crunch of the crisp noodles and the wide variety of meats and vegetables that came with this tasty dish.

The hawker hawker style deep fried tofu wasn't something that either of us would normally order but the pictures looked great. Besides, crispy deep fried anything is worth trying isn't it?

This turned out to be a surprisingly good dish - with a lovely crisp tofu outer revealing a soft warm centre inside. As it's a mild dish the dipping sauce that came with it added some tang.

Another Aussie favourite we spotted were the satay chicken skewers.

Again it's a hard to resist dish so we grabbed a serving of six.

They arrived on a bed of sliced cucumber and onion and we were really pleased to see that it had a generous amount of rich peanut satay sauce on top - as it's always terrible when you run out!

The surprise package of the night was the marmite pork spare ribs. Yes it's clearly not traditional - but it was amazing! Marmite is used to create a combination sweet and salty sauce that coats the ribs in a lovely sticky glaze.

On the other hand, the fried koay teow we had is a traditional. This really nice meal was Malaysian hawker style spicy flat rice noodles with pork lard, seafood, beansprouts and Chinese sausage. It was a lovely mix.

While salt and pepper squid isn't a traditional Malaysian dish - it was on the menu here and we'd seen how good it looked when it arrived at another nearby table.

Petaling Street Malaysian Malaysian Hawker Food was great value, with lovely food in really good quantities and arriving quickly. It's well worth visiting.
