Ikan Bakar (Grilled Fish)
Ikan bakar is sold everywhere in Malaysia, but Langkawi offers arguably the best ones due to its abundant supply of fresh seafood. Its literal translation is 'grilled fish', you can find plenty of roadside stalls, night markets, and local restaurants selling these delicacies at affordable prices. The fish is marinated in a blend of sambal, turmeric, chilli, belacan, and galangal before it's wrapped in a banana leaf and grilled over a charcoal stove. Due to its spicy flavour, a plate of steamed rice goes perfectly well with ikan bakar.

Nasi Lemak
Nasi lemak, one of Malaysia's signature Malay dishes, can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It's a hearty dish of coconut-flavoured rice, served with hard-boiled egg, fried peanuts, anchovies, and a spicy shrimp-based sauce. Readily available everywhere in Langkawi, a plate of nasi lemak can fetch a hefty price tag at five-star resorts while night markets and roadside stalls sell it prewrapped in banana leaf for as low as RM1.50. You can even have your nasi lemak topped with curried meat or fried chicken at additional prices.

Beef Rendang
Beef rendang is traditionally served together with ketupat (rice dumpling wrapped in coconut leaf) and nasi minyak (ghee rice) during weddings or annual festivities. Today, it's a popular accompaniment to any sort of rice dish. Beef rendang comprises beef cubes in a slow-cooked curry that's heavily spiced with ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime, chilies, toasted coconut, and asam keping, which comes from a rainforest tree that's native to Peninsular Malaysia. Aside from beef or buffalo meat, you can also find chicken, vegetarian, and seafood rending at most Malay restaurants in Langkawi.

Gulai Ikan Talang Masin (Salted Fish Curry)
Gulai ikan talang masin is a must-try if you're a seafood lover, comprising salted queen fish, pineapple, and vegetables in coconut and lemongrass curry. Originally an Indian-Muslim delicacy, it's now a popular dish in almost every Malay household and eatery. Despite its name, it's not overpoweringly salty thanks to its abundance of turnip, brinjal, tomato, and beans. As with most Malay stews and curries, gulai ikan talang masin is usually paired with white rice or tomato rice, for added flavour.

Ayam Masak Merah (Tomato Chicken)
Ayam masak merah is named after its bright red ensemble of fried chicken braised in tomato sauce. Several local restaurants also add corn kernels, peas, and diced carrot into the mix before garnishing it with coriander and kaffir lime leaves. Unlike most Malay dishes, ayam masak merah has more of a sweet and sour taste, making it a good option for those who can't handle spicy food. Priced between RM4 and RM6, this dish can be paired with plain rice or nasi tomato.
