Meet the guide and the rest of the small group at the Taman Paramount Light Rail Transit (LRT) station in Petaling Jaya. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle for a quick trip to a Kuala Lumpur neighborhood of the guide’s choosing to begin this evening food tour.
One possibility would be the Bangsar area, boasting a wide variety of food spots like mamak stalls with traditional Tamil-Muslim cuisine, plus South Indian banana-leaf restaurants and Malay warungs, or small, family-owned restaurants offering both local and Western food.
Also, visit some of the food stalls in a round-the-clock hawker center (an open-air food court) in Petaling Jaya, or head to Brickfields to see some of their South Indian restaurants and Chinese coffee shops serving traditional Chinese fare like dim sum.
Allow the knowledgeable guide to make the selections of local favorites. Try dishes like nasi lemak (coconut rice with chili paste, anchovies, peanuts and vegetables; stir-fried Chinese noodles; Indian breads with chicken, fish and mutton curry; desserts like ondeh ondeh (rice balls with palm sugar and coconut shavings).
