Keropok lekor is the ultimate, fish-based Malaysian snack – one we’ve been munching on since the Tun Sri Lanang days. No matter which background you are from, there’s just no way you can never say no to this Pantai Timur delicacy – that fresh, soft and crispiness of the texture that makes us want more of it. There are more and more variants available these days, but the classic lekor with cili sauce still sends tingles through every Malaysian’s tongue.
