We once went to Malaysia, and came back to Bethnal Green with first-degree sunburn, a pet monkey, and a horrible stir-fried noodle habit. We’re happy to report that Bieber, our new pet macaque, has found a good char kway teow (smokey stir-fried flat noodles with pork and prawns) at Malaysian spot Rasa Sayang. It’s probably the best £8 you’ll spend, even in this part of town, and everything else on the menu (like the beef rendang) is good as well. Head there for a casual dinner or catch up. Bieber will also be writing all Malaysian restaurant reviews from now on.
