I like to ask my friends what their favorites places to eat are. A common answer that I’ve been hearing is the New Malaysia Restaurant.
It’s a place that I love too. It’s no frills dining. The food is really fresh, yummy, and affordable.
Malay food is one of the more popular cuisines in our Chinatown. The New Malaysian Restaurant isn’t written up nearly as many times as it should be. It’s our local secret top pick.
Most of us just call it “the tunnel”. It’s one of a series of restaurants that lie within the tunnel that connects Elizabeth and Bowery streets in the middle of the block.
I recommend the seafood and chicken dishes here.
