|Langkawi Foods & Restaurants Review | Traveler's Choices|

Food is notably pricey comparatively, if one put it against the same variety of its kind across the sea in Peninsular Malaysia. That's said, if one can survive on imported chocolate, beers, liquors and imported ice-cream, you may change your mind and agree that foodstuff is dirt cheap.
The rule of thumbs are:
1. For basic, decent food to fuel up, go for chain restaurants e.g. Marry Brown, Mc Donald especially if you have strict budget to play and doubtful of local variety.
2. For budget local travelers, you absolutely have more rooms to play. If you stay near Pantai Cenang, Tomato Nasi Kandar is a pretty convenience hang out spot to grab food over the clock. This eatery is famed for cheap and nice local fare, including Tandoori and roti prata (roti canai - Malaysian flat bread).
3. For splurge, try some elegant restaurants e.g. Japanese Unkaizen at Pantai Tengah, Yellow Cafe at Pantai Cenang.
4. For those on the go, there is an excellent bakery that offers fresh daily dough supplies - The Loaf. Vast selection of handmade buns, from all kind of shapes and sizes that one would grow fonder the longer one stares on them! Baked daily from high quality ingredients, I was told they only served freshly baked bread or buns and never keep on the shelves overnight. There are 2 outlets now, one at Perdana Quay facing Telaga Harbor Marina. The newer one is occupying the ground floor at Cenang Mall, right in the heart of Pantai Cenang. In addition to dough supplies, The Loaf Bakery & Bistro also serves western menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Langkawi Hotel Food
Langkawi hotel breakfast is usually affordable. For example, Federal Villa or Holiday Villa Resort stay comes with breakfast for 2 people. If you have an additional guest, one can enjoy the buffet breakfast for RM25+. Local and western variety, ranging from nasi lemak, porridge, salads, egg variety, bun or toast, cereals, sausages to fruits and juices or coffee, they are pretty decent choices to kick start your day.
One word of caution, medication can be very expensive. I walked into a drug store, looking for mosquito repellent. To my surprise, the price can be as much as 20% higher for the same item that one can get in Peninsular Malaysia.
If you are wondering on drinking water, I strongly urge that one only drink boiled water or filtered or processed, bottled mineral water. For bottled water, there are many brands so pick the one you are most comfortable with.
Hope this post provides sufficient pointers on the basic daily needs including foods in Langkawi.
