One of my favourite things about travelling in Asia is the food. It is delicious and cheap, and Malaysia is no different. Of course you can find McDonalds and Burger King if you are so inclined, but for a good meal for next to nothing, head to the local hawkers. I haven't really seen a western equivalent, but I guess it is like the restaurants we get in food courts, only they stand alone and open air. You'll know them when you see them, and they are everywhere. Most sell the same type of things but with slight differences depending on where the owner comes from, e.g. Halal, Chinese, Malaysian, Indian etc (halal won't serve pork).
