Eat Out. Malaysia Kitchen Night Market.

For all the various cuisines we're able to enjoy in Los Angeles, somehow Malaysian food seems to get forgotten in it all. I'm sure most, even those who like to think of themselves as foodies, probably are not be getting as much great Malaysian cuisine as they might like.

But fear not, BEATs. Tomorrow night Third Street Promenade will be turning into a bona fide street market, thanks to Malaysian Kitchen, a global initiative aimed at getting the world out about Malaysian cuisine, sponsored by the Malaysian government itself. From 5:30pm to 8:30pm (hope you can beat that traffic!), the promenade will be transformed with colorful tents and lanterns to get the feel of a real Malaysian market, and vendors from local restaurants like Monsoon Cafe and Belacan Grill will be offering free tastings of Malaysian cuisine. Think street grub like chicken satay in peanut sauce or beef rendang (like beef curry).

And it's all free! Get into the cultural spirit. Plus, the weather's supposed to be pretty nice out, so it'll be perfect for taking a walk and enjoying some great Malaysian food.

The Malaysian Kitchen Night Market is taking place tomorrow from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

And if anyone knows of some great Malaysian food spots, comment below!
