What You Can Expect

Eat Like a Local: Kuala Lumpur Hawker Center and Street Food Tour by Night

Enjoy a Food Tour in KL!

After meeting your guide at a central Kuala Lumpur location, easily accessible by the city’s Light Rail Transit, your small-group food tour begins as you board an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive to the KL neighborhood of your guide’s choice (the neighborhood(s) you visit are up to your expert guide and will vary based on the day of the week).

One such neighborhood you may visit is the Bangsar area, which boasts a wide array of food spots like mamak stalls serving traditional Tamil-Muslim cuisine, South Indian banana-leaf restaurants serving delectable treats on a banana leaf, and Malay warungs (small family-owned establishments serving both local and Western snacks). Or, you might head to Petaling Jaya, where you’ll visit a ‘round-the-clock hawker center (open-air food court) to try food from select stalls frequented by locals. Another possible destination is Brickfields, a popular hawker center famous for its South Indian restaurants and Chinese coffee shops serving traditional Chinese fare like dim sum.

No matter where you end up, rest assured that you’ll have a vibrant KL experience. As you follow your guide’s lead, you’ll weave through alleys and around food stalls with ease, knowing your guide will order your food and make sure you taste the most delicious dishes of the day (or night). Try nasi lemak, a fragrant coconut rice with chili paste, anchovies, peanuts and vegetables. Or maybe you’ll have stir-fried Chinese noodles; an assortment of Indian breads with chicken, fish and mutton curry; or Malaysian desserts such as ondeh ondeh, rice balls with palm sugar and coconut shavings. As you are introduced you to local favorites, you’ll experience interesting Malaysian customs with the comfort of a guide who knows all the ins and outs of KL’s food culture.

At the end of the tour, you’ll be driven back to the original meeting point.

This tour is a wonderful introduction to Malaysian food. Farah was our guide and she did a great job in telling us about the food and customs of the different ethnic meals we sampled.We began with a Malay meal at a popular Malay hawkers covered eating place. We tried food that we would never have considered tasting. It was delicious. From there by car to a semi covered popular Chinese eating place. A meal tasting a variety of their favourite dishes. Finally to a large And busy Indian hawkers eatery for a taste of their curries and naan bread. All the food was tasty. We loved this tour and would recommend it as a must-do.
