The Malaysia Boleh! Food Court has more than doubled its space on level 3 of Jurong Point.
Taking up the new space are 15 stalls featuring food from popular operators in Malaysia – bringing the total number of stalls there to 32.
The new items come from different Malaysian states such as Pahang, Penang and Johor, which the Malaysia Boleh! founders spent five months to source.
The Malaysian stall-holders trained the cooks based here, and help to ensure that the flavours stay authentic.
Here are five must-try stalls at Malaysia Boleh!
Seafood restoran gohtong jaya
This may well be the first zichar stall in a shopping mall food court.
The man behind the wok used to work at one of the eateries lining the mountain road leading to Genting Highlands.
And the dishes boast an inimitable Malaysian flavour, which is generally stronger than what you find in Singapore.
Even a common dish such as Superior Stock Spinach ($12 to $24), cooked with egg, salted egg and century egg, tastes more complex and delicious.
Don’t miss the Hor Fun With Egg ($6 to $20), which boasts good wok hei (wok breath) and the lovely aroma of lard.

Penang carrot cake
It’s just pieces of rice cake, which are cut into triangular wedges, fried with egg.
But the cake is so smooth and soft, and so fresh that you can taste the rice fragrance in it.
The secret ingredient here – again – is lard, which makes the dish really aromatic.
There are small bits of crispy deep-fried lard snuggled among the fried egg as well.
A plate costs $3 or $4.

Damansara chilli pan mee
This is the Malaysian version of ban mian (freshly made wheat noodles).
It is served dry with a delicious chilli sauce that is more aromatic than hot.
The noodles are not very thick and have a slightly springy texture.
They are topped with minced pork, stewed Chinese mushrooms, fried ikan bilis, spinach and a barely cooked egg.
At $4 a bowl, these noodles are really addictive.

Morgan mee rebus
The mee rebus ($3) is not as sweet as most versions you can find in Singapore.
It comes with freshly fried beancurd cubes, sliced green chilli, a hard-boiled egg, fried shallots and a bit of sambal, which gives it an interesting edge.
Give the lontong ($3.50) a try as well, it has a curry gravy with just the right amount of coconut milk.
The gravy is nice and spicy as is, but those who can take more heat can stir in the dollop of sambal added on top.
Kuantan nasi lemak
The rice in this nasi lemak ($3.50) is a bit wet, but it is so aromatic.
On the rice is a fried chicken wing that is meaty and cooked just right, with a nice whiff of aromatic spices.
A spicy sambal, half a hard-boiled egg, fried ikan bilis and peanuts, and slices of cucumber complete the dish.
You can order extra chicken wings at $1.50 each.
