Looks can be deceiving, that’s certainly the case when it comes to Wok-ker Shaker. Located in the shadows of Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, Wok-ker Shaker looks very much like any of the city’s other bog standard takeaways. In fact, however, it serves some of Cardiff’s most exciting Malaysian food with international students travelling across the city to try their cooking. Nasi Lemak is on the mark from the coconut fragranced rice to the spicy and sweet chilli paste and crispy anchovies and peanuts. It’s all the better served with an extra order of deep flavoured chicken rendang.

And of course a mug of wonderfully sweet and creamy teh tarik is like builders’ tea dialled up to 11.
