The Chinese Malaysian place Khim and Soon Teoh opened in Anaheim isn’t the only restaurant to serve Malaysian food in the county. It’s actually the second. But Seasons Kitchen USA might just be the only one that matters. The char siu that tops the oil-dressed noodle is pork candy. The traditional Malaysian desserts are sublime. And though you’ve always been able to get nasi lemak at OC’s other Malaysian restaurant, Seasons Kitchen’s version is better by a thousand miles. The nasi, the fragrant rice enriched with coconut cream and pandan, is scrumptious—a satisfying meal on its own. But surrounded by satellites of sides such as ikan bilis (fried anchovies with peanuts), slices of cucumber, tomato, hard-boiled eggs, sambal, and a potato-and-chicken curry, the Teohs’ nasi lemak runs laps around the competition—even if there really is just the one.
