Anyway, my point ... and I do have one ... is that we visited Melbourne for four days earlier this week, and were intrigued to note how many more Malaysian eateries have appeared in recent years. Just as Andrew likes to eat French toast in lots of different locations (you can see some of his attempts here and here and here), we like to try new Malaysian restaurants and cafes when we travel. This week we ate at Killiney Kopitiam in Bourke Street, Papparoti in Elizabeth Street, and Straits of Malacca in Swanston Street. All were yummy.

Satay (a mixture of beef and chicken) at Straits of Malacca
Is Melbourne turning into Little Malaysia? Perhaps! It's an exciting and enjoyable city to visit, and the proliferation of spicy food is the icing on the cake.
