I have a thing for brussel sprouts, therefore this pie rates well in my books. The combination of ground pork meatballs, crunchy brussel sprouts and zingy red onion slivers atop stretchy cheese hit the spot for me.

First time and first meal in Langkawi, and it's sedap af. We were too knackered after our late afternoon flight to travel out of the hotel for dinner, so decided to have our meal at @fslangkawi 's in-house Malaysian restaurant, Ikan Ikan.

What arrived at the table was a centerpiece stunner of a whole red snapper, its
crispy carcass coiled around golden nuggets encasing flaky and juicy alabaster chunks of meat within. The strikingly yellow coconut and turmeric sauce was spot on as well - creamy, earthy and just a little sweet, with cherry tomatoes strewn on the plate providing bursts of acidity as a foil to the richness.

Flawlessly executed fried rice where every spicy, salt-kissed grain has the perfect al dente bite. Its studded with pieces of ikan bilis, carrot, eggs and onion and topped with a fillet of crispy mackerel which unfortunately was quite bony. That saucer of sambal though, was the fiery kiss that dialled the flavour to 10.

Google Map reviews had this as the best fish and chips place in town. That may be so, but it was a subpar experience for us. The service was incredibly slow, and after 40 minutes of waiting and seeing people arriving later than us get their food first, we checked with the staff only to be told they had missed our order.

The fish was fresh and coated in a light tempura batter, and it wasn't bad at all but the portions were ridiculously tiny. After almost an hour of waiting, we only took 5 minutes to finish our lunch and had to rush back to the hotel to prepare for our flight home.

There's nothing more comforting than this meltingly tender beef in a fragrant and "lemak" dry coconut curry spooned over a steaming mound of white rice. It's spicy, subtly sweet and oh so savoury. A must have when at Pia's.

We weren’t expecting a mountain of vegetable fritters piled high on the plate, but we inhaled these incredibly light and crisp seasoned gram flour battered and deep-fried onions, eggplant and curry leaves. Its served with a refreshing raita and sweet chilli sauce on the side to cut through the oiliness.

Pia’s is a rustic little restaurant amongst the padi fields serving up primarily Indian food with a smattering of Western-style dishes.
-
Expect rich, heavily spiced curries and sauces, such as this buttery and artery clogging creamy butter masala, laden with large and plump prawns. This dish brings the heat, so pair it with lots of white rice.

Light and fluffy, the freshly made canai was eggy, mildly cheesy and not at all greasy as is often the case. You could easily have 3 of these for breakfast.

I love all permutations of prata and their regional variations, and in particular the version in Malaysia where chopped up pieces of the flatbread are “banjir-ed”(flooded) with curry sauce on the plate, usually with the accompaniment of soft-boiled eggs.
-
Roti Canai Power in the Tanjung Rhu area of Langkawi is reputed to be the best on the island, and I can safely say it’s worth a stop in your holiday itinerary for a satisfying breakfast.
-
Milder and more watery than what we’re used to in Singapore but no less savoury, the sauce sees the interesting addition of sardine for a bigger hit of umami. Break and thoroughly mix the yolks in, then revel in the enriched and gloriously soggy mess that would no doubt make paratha purists see red.
