Some of the dishes are prepared fresh for you in the ‘live kitchen’ where you get to select à la minute grilled seafood or chicken and beef satay with peanut sauce. The noodle station offers Laksa Johor, Laksa Penang, Laksa Kelantan or Nyonya Laksa, while the Malaysian stall has Rendang Minang, Gulai kawah or Rendang tok on a rotation basis.
