What You Can Expect

Small-Group Food Trail Walking Tour in Kuala Lumpur

Small-Group Food Trail Walking Tour in Kuala Lumpur

Meet your guide at the entrance to Bangsar Station, a stop along the city’s Light Rail Transit (LRT), to begin your small-group food tour of Kuala Lumpur. Then, follow your guide off the beaten track through hidden backstreets and narrow alleys to sample enough local food for a delicious lunch!

Stroll with your small group through the Indian-influenced neighborhood of Brickfields, where you’ll find architecture and music as loud and colorful as the food! At the hawker center, famous for its South Indian food stalls and restaurants, sample delicious Indian dishes, each plated on a banana leaf. Your guide will introduce you to an assortment of Indian breads along with chicken, fish or mutton curry.

As you walk around, your guide will order your food and help you interact with the locals, making sure you taste the best dishes, including a variety of delectable Indian sweets. Try sugary morsels like fresh banana fritter, gulabjamu (a sticky, sweet treat) or cendol – a local favorite made of shaved ice, plum sugar, kidney beans and coconut milk jelly.

Next, your guide will take your small group aboard the sky-high transit system to Kuala Lumpur’s bustling Chinatown. Weave through this vibrant neighborhood, known for its Chinese shops serving traditional dim sum. Dive into a bowl of tasty stir-fried noodles and sample a glass of refreshing limejuice while you take in the lively atmosphere around you.

Complete your culinary tour over coffee at an old-school coffee house, where you’ll see charming photos from Kuala Lumpur’s past on display. As you relax, your guide will further discuss Malaysian customs and food culture, as well as offer recommendations of where to eat for dinner.

Your tour ends in Chinatown at Petaling Street.
