Where to Eat

Dining in Mini

Eating out is a Malaysian pastime, and the good folk of Miri are no exception. The offer is unlimited: food outlets range from fine dining, exotic foreign restaurants and bistros to roadside food stalls.

Western Dining
Many restaurants and cozy cafes serve western cuisine like steaks, fish and chips, a cup of espresso, or a full five-course dinner accompanied by fine wines.

Hawkers’ stalls: Day-and-night hawkers offer a unique dining experience at economical rates, ranging from as low as RM3.00 for a bowl of pasta to an elaborate RM8.00 plate of Hokkien Noodles with all the trimmings. Visitors should try spicy Nasi Lemak, a rice dish garnished with peanuts and anchovies, or any of the dozens of noodle dishes.

The drink of choice is ‘Teh tarik’, sweet milky tea dramatically poured from one jug into another. Food stalls with their plastic chairs and tables are easily recognisable, especially along North Yu Seng Road, Jalan Permaisuri, Taman Seroja, Taman Selera and at the Saberkas Commercial Centre.

Indian Food
‘Roti canai’ pancakes for breakfast, ‘Nasi briyani’ rice for lunch and ‘Mutton curry’ for dinner are commonly available in Miri.

Chinese Food
From cheap snacks in the coffee shop stalls to twelve-course dinners fit for an emperor,Miri has it all. The main cuisines represented here are Cantonese, Hokkien, Foochow and Hakka. 

Korean, Japanese, Thai
The international hotels and a number of select restaurants offer these cuisines to discerning diners.
