This unforgettable tasting tour of Kuala Lumpur introduces you to the culturally diverse flavors of Malaysian cuisine. Let a personal guide help you sample 10 dishes that feature the Indian, Chinese, and Malay culinary influences of KL. You'll visit markets and street food stands on this 4-hour private tour.
  • Sample a combo of Indian, Chinese, and Malay foods
  • Includes 10 delicious tastings such as satay
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
Meet your guide at your preferred time near Chow Kit Market and start your private food tasting tour amid the fresh produce stands. Tantalize your appetite with a mixed fruit basket prepared for you, and learn about the cultural influences that make up Malaysia's most popular dishes.

Next up is the Malay enclave of Kampung Baru. Here, savor nasi lemak, a coconut rice dish that locals eat for breakfast. Try pisang goreng, a popular street food snack made of bananas, and taste freshly prepared satay.

You'll take an Uber to Jalan Masjid India where savory flavors include paper dosa, an Indian classic made of paper-thin pancake. Sample a mini tiffin, a dish with several sauce options from curry to coconut chutney, accompanied by Madras tea. 

Then experience Chinese influences on Malaysian cuisine among the Madras Lane hawker stalls. Start with curry mee, a spicy curried noodle soup with a variety of toppings. You’re in for a treat with yong tau foo, a Hakka Chinese dish of tofu filled with deliciousness. Finish off your feast with a glass of cendol, a creamy dessert made of coconut milk and green starched jelly noodles.

Poor tour
, Oct 2019
This tour was much below our expectations. We did have four tastes of delicious local foods but we had put our dietary requirements which the tour guide had mentioned she wasn’t aware of till the last minute. We walked for very long distances in empty areas for long periods of time to reach other areas to taste the food. The guide was nice and friendly however the tour was certainly not worth what we paid and was of poor quality. I only say this for either the guide to uplift her tour or/ and for people to be aware of what they are getting into.

What an amazing experience we had with our guide T.K on this tour. As it was a private tour he gave us the option of going truly off the tourist trail to hidden places where the locals eat. We did not regret our decision as we had a unique experience and sampled foods and visited places we would never have had the courage or knowledge to do on our own. We had Indian food in a back street family run restaurant, beef pendants from a market stall,tofu and pancakes from established street vendors, noodles and pork, a drink made from local fruits, so much food we didn't need to eat for the rest of day! It was just like having a friend show you round his favourite places. He also took care to get us a taxi back to our hotel at the end of the tour. If you want a truly authentic local experience in Kuala Lumpur we would definitely recommend this tour and if you request TK you are good hands.

Not worth the money

Discover the Best Local Food Tour by Night in Kuala Lumpur | Feb 2020
After we met the guide we went to a food court in a mall where we had first meal. Then we walked along one street with food and finally we to an Indian restaurant where we had just a dessert. The tasting was always just a small piece of food. Nothing special. We learned bits of information but not much. We were not able to taste typical dish which you read about in travel guides. If you go directly to Jalan Alor without a guide you do no mistake and can taste by yourself selecting from menu knowing names of food from travel guide books. It was not worth the money at all.

Excellent Tour

Private Half-Day Batu Caves Waterfalls and Hot Springs Tour | Jan 2020
Excellent knowledge tour & service provided by out guide Hoopy. The great thing about a private tour is the ability to choose an earlier start time to fit your itinerary & never rushed.. We choose a 08:30 start to avoid the busy crowds at the Batu Caves. Great to see the steps & the caves with minimal people in them. As we were leaving the crowds began to come as the big tour buses arrived. Took my parents who were in their 70’s & they had no problems with the steps & everything was done at our own pace, so never rushed. We had plenty of time to see all sights & our guide took & sent pictures to us afterwards. Would highly recommend.

Champ was a great tour guide and started well by being on time. His local knowledge was very informative and easy to understand. Going to Batu Caves early was a good idea as it was getting busy by the time we finished. Definitely recommend the private tour as it was a great way to get around rather than a bus tour.

Discover the Best Local Food Tour by Night in Kuala Lumpur | Jul 2019
We were met by staff on given time and place. He welcomed us, walked us to food street which was very close and busy area. He asked as what is our expectation from tour and we told him to learn about local food. But we found out that most of restaurants were selling Chinese food. few were local as well. We didn't enjoy the tour as the knowledge shared with us was about food presentation and eating cultures while our intention was to learn how Malay people prepare their food mainly how they cook. We were not taken to any kitchen where cooking could be seen closely. The tour guide also told us that we selected the wrong tout but actually this tour is supposed to be about Malay food as the name says. The worst part was that tour started at 6pm and finished at 7.20 while it was supposed to be two hours. We were offered to taste three samples from street vendors. I booked the tour with two children 11 and 15. Not enjoyed at all. Not recommended if you want to learn about Malaysian food.

We had a great tour with Povan, he knew so much about the area and history and was a really funny guide. We loved all the facts about Batu Caves and the various empires and invasions. The hot springs were a great slice of local life, and the waterfalls were full of hidden gems. Interesting, personalised, and informative. Thanks Povan!

Private Half-Day Batu Caves Waterfalls and Hot Springs Tour | Apr 2019
Great tour. Would have been better if our guide climbed the stairs at the Batu Caves to explain the temples and caves as indicated in the tour info. Waterfalls are beautiful and the hot springs very hot. Guide was knowledgeable and personable but felt a bit stranded in the caves. Enjoyed the local meal and coconut water.
