Starch kid: Malaysian kids have their own creative way of eating mixed foods

Mixed food describes a mixture of different cuisines from different regions of the world. A common example of food fusion is Tex-Mex cuisine, a fusion of food from Texas, in the United States and Mexico. Tex-Mex foods include quesadillas, enchiladas, fajitas, and guacamole.
