Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

For down and dirty Indonesian and Malaysian food, check out this Chinatown hole in the wall. Actually, it’s a hole in the ground, with a small café at street level and the main dining room down a narrow flight of stairs. It’s worth a trip to the café just to sample the wobbly, colorful sweet cakes made with tapioca and coconut milk. Downstairs, avoid the rujak, a salad of unripe mango in sweet and sour sauce, which lacks depth and detail, and try the roti canai, a fried pancake served with a cup of spicy coconut curry, a classic Malaysian sauce. The curry bean thread crab, a clay pot swimming with whole crabs, is also tasty.
