Have you heard about the rainbow craze taking the culinary world by storm? First it was this rainbow bagel
in NYC that got EVERYONE lining up for hours. Then, it was the rainbow coffee
hype. Yes, you read that right, coffee. Now, it’s the rainbow grilled cheese sandwich
that’s trending like crazy. Geez guys, what’s next? Rainbow spaghetti? Or who knows, roti canai
rainbow?! Whatever it is, these artsy inventions were meant to tease our taste buds (and eye sight) as it is after all, visually pleasing and Instagram-worthy.
So, the question is, when will we be able to taste all of these awesome rainbow delights? Your wait is over as we’ve listed down a few rainbow infused foods that you can actually find in Malaysia! So to all hipsters, Instagrammers and food lovers, this one’s for you.
Yes, ever since The Bagel Store
kick started this phenomenon, it’s about time we followed suit. You no longer have to fly half the world away to taste them, as you could just easily get ‘em from Bowery Petit
in TTDI. The myriad of colours will get your heartbeat racing and the cream cheese filling really compliments the bagel. The price tag? RM10.90! Not bad, aye.
These guys managed to elevate the art of eating pudding by putting it in a glass jar. How do you eat it? With a straw! Plus, the packaging makes it easier for us to bring it anywhere and eat it. It’s like an on-the-go snack. That’s not only the best part about it, you can get this rainbow explosion in your mouth for only as low as RM5! Puding Sedut Aiskrim by Sarip Dol

Biskut Lidah Kucing
No, it’s not made from a cat’s tongue as the name implies, but it sure tastes as good as cuddling with your cat on a rainy day. These biscuits were quite popular for Hari Raya
a few years back and we forsee it making a comeback this year. The arrangement of the colours makes us wanna eat it colour after colour. You can also make them yourself with this recipe
or purchase it from this seller
for RM18 per jar.
Pisang Goreng Cheese Rainbow
Apart from the culinary world’s obsession with rainbow, we Malaysians have an obsession with cheese. Basically we just LOVE adding cheese to almost everything. So what better way than to marry these two elements into one food called pisang goreng
(banana fritters) cheese rainbow. Finding pisang goreng
cheese isn’t a challenge but finding rainbow ones might be. You can try finding a few stalls in Klang Valley or get in contact with these guys, Pisang Kejuk
. They have outlets not only in KL but also in Johor, Terengganu, and Negeri Sembilan. A new outlet is also coming to Shah Alam soon. Prices start as low as RM5 per box.
Who wouldn’t love the idea of cutting into a cake to find a rainbow in it? We know we do! Rainbow cakes are fairly easy to find at any bakery store or you can even get it custom made by cake bakers all over Malaysia. This is one of the cakes that every rainbow lover should cross off their bucket list. But, if you don’t know where to start to satisfy your rainbow buds, you can start with Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie
What better way to start your day than with some wholesome rainbow pancakes! These are practically what unicorns and fairies have for breakfast, after all. You can get your colourful pancake fix at Oh Scooter Café
