2006_01_food_fattycrab.jpgConsidering all of the Fatty Crab craziness going on at the edge of Manhattan's Meatpacking district, one would think that Chef Zak Pelaccio is the first to introduce the city to the wonders of Malaysian cuisine.

Not so. In fact, our fair city is rife with Malaysian fare - and has been for a long while. Some of Gothamist's faves include Chinatown's Nyonya, Elmhurst's Taste Good and Jackson Height's Malaysian Rasa Sayang.

So, if you can't get into Pelaccio's Malay streetcart cuisine palace, don't despair. Grab your Metrocard and catch Malaysian meal mania in another part of town.
