Malaysia Chiak! is a fairly new food chain. It is like a mini food court with stalls offering Malaysian street food. They have outlets in malls all over Singapore including The Centrepoint, Singpost Centre and Northpoint City. The latest out just opened in Marina One.
Malaysia Chiak! is part of the Fei Siong Group, which has brands like Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice, London Duck, Encik Tan, Let’s Eat and Nam Kee. Malaysia Chiak! brings Malaysian hawker fare to a location near you. Stalls selling Penang Char Kway Teow, Assam Laksa, Prawn Mee, Paus and Chendol can be found in Malaysia Chiak! Different outlets have different food stalls and their prices may also differ for the same dish. Generally, the decor and furnishing of Malaysia Chiak! outlets are basic but their prices are reasonable.
Malaysia Chiak Marina One
Malaysia Chiak Marina One is the latest outlet. It is located in basement 2 of Marina One in the retail section called The Heart.
We had the Hainanese Chicken Cutlet Curry Rice ($4.50) and the Yong Peng Fishball Noodles ($4). The Curry Rice was quite ordinary. The fishball noodles dish was good traditional comfort food. It was quite simple but tasty enough. The fishball had good texture and the noodles were cooked just right and were springy.
We also had their chendol ($2), which we thought was cheap and delicious.

Malaysia Chiak Singpost Centre
Malaysia Chiak Singpost Centre is located in basement 1. It has 2 main sections. On on eside, there are the pau and drinks stall and the ban mian stall. If you want the Penang dishes like fried kway teow, carrot cake, prawn mee, assam laksa or chendol, you have to queue at the other end of the shop.
We tried their carrot cake ($3) and Penang fried kway teow ($5). The standard of the food was passable. We also noticed that cook would change from time to time and the taste of the fried kway teow could be different on different occasions.
We were intrigued by Koka Mee ($4) but it turned out to be Koka instant noodles soup. It was quite tasty though. The chendol ($2) is a must try.

Malaysia Chiak Centrepoint
Malaysia Chiak Centrepoint is located in basement one near the underpass connection Centrepoint to Orchard Central.
Malaysia Chiak Centrepoint has a Fried Oyster Stall and a Claypot Stall which we did not see in their other outlets.
We had the Penang Assam Lasak ($5) and Penang Yong Kee Char Kway Teow ($5). Both were very nice. We had tried the fried kway teow in various Malaysia Chiak outlets and thought the best version was the one in Malaysia Chiak Centrepoint.
