Top 8 Best Western Food Restaurants in Johor 2022

Western dishes differ from Asian dishes in the sense that the meat portions of Western dishes are more prominent. Large portions of Steak, Chicken, Pork, Lamb, and Beef accompanied by crispy shoestring or crinkle-cut Fries are common dishes in the West.

Dairy products are also commonly used in Western cooking for dishes such as Pizza, Pasta, Spaghetti, Cordon Bleu, and many more. Main dishes are generally savoury and sweet dishes such as the Banana Split, Pancakes, Cakes, and Ice Cream are served as dessert.

What are the origins of western food?

Western food originated from the French and expanded to other European countries such as Italy and Spain. Today, western food has dominated the globe and you can have western food in almost every country, with each country creating its version of each dish. 

The most popular western main dishes in Malaysia are Hamburgers, Pizza, Steak, Chicken or Pork Chop, Grilled Beef or Lamb, Cordon Bleu, and a variety of fries. Popular desserts include cakes, Banana Fritters, Apple Pie, Ice Cream, Pancakes, Cupcakes, and best of all the Banana Split.
