There’s never a shortage of food in Malaysia. Be it local food, Japanese, Korean and you can even find German food here. Enter langos, a type of Hungarian street food, that is being sold by a Hungarian man and his Muslim wife in a small town in Perak called Kampung Telok Bakong Hulu.

What is langos, you ask? It’s a type of deep-friend flatbread and is traditionally topped with cheese. It tastes similar to cakoi but denser.

What is so special about the langos Adam is selling? The couple tweaked the langos to suit our Malaysian tastebuds. The toppings include homemade kaya, chocolate,  sour cream, garlic and olive oil and, the fan’s favourite: anchovies sambal! Be sure to complete your order with a cup of refreshing cendol!

Adam’s ability to speak fluent Bahasa Malaysia makes him a popular figure in the town and the locals even called him Adam Mat Salleh. The couple met when Elsuraya was living in Budapest, Hungary and they decided to move to Malaysia after getting married.

The couple’s journey to open the stall started when their home was broken into a few days after moving back to Malaysia and they lost everything. So, they started a business selling langos as it didn’t need a huge capital. All they needed was flour, sugar, salt, yeast and water.

They also sell langos at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Seri Iskandar every Tuesday night, Kampung Gajah wet market every Tuesday morning, the night market at UiTM Tapah every Wednesday, and Toh Puan Besar Hatijah Mosque’s compound every Friday between noon and 3pm.

The couple is open to receiving orders. Those interested can contact Elsuraya at 019-567 6689.

Address: Jalan Teluk Intan, Kampung Telok Bakong Hulu, 32900 Lambor Kanan, Perak.

Opening hours: 4pm - 7pm (Friday - Sunday)
