This Malaysian restaurant in Seattle started as a pop-up

In this episode of Dining on a Dime, host Lucas Peterson goes to Kedai Makan in Seattle, a Capitol Hill restaurant that started as a pop-up serving Malaysian food.

Kedai Makan is a Malaysian restaurant on Bellevue Avenue in Seattle that began its life as a pop-up — as the business’ success and reputation grew, its owners moved into a brick-and-mortar location on Capitol Hill.

Join host Lucas Peterson as he samples some of the Malaysian fare from Kedai Makan, including the roti jala, or net bread, fiery curry, and distinctive fried rice dishes. The Malaysian palate is full of spice and fermented flavors. Peterson also addresses the fact that the restaurants chefs and owners are not Malaysian, and how, if at all, that should affect how diners think about the food.
