It has been 6 long years since we last set
foot in Malaysia. Apart from visiting our good friends and relatives, there’s
always something else that entices us across the causeway. Yes, you guessed it
– the food!
There are 3 parts to our Malaysian food trip.
Part 1 – Kuala Lumpur Part 2 – Ipoh Part 3 – Penang
We could tell you how tasty they were and how much we enjoyed them but nothing beats giving your taste bud a treat by making a trip yourself.
Special thanks to
and @chewchuiling, @amandatwh, @sonicpuff for sharing the local tips! @bc_ontherocks
Our 10 best places to eat in Kuala Lumpur
Original Penang Kayu Nasi Kandar – Bangsar Branch
Restoran Mun Kee Steam Fish Head
One type of fish, 5 ways of cooking. YUMS!
Fresh Kang Kong in claypot Steamed minced pork – Must Order!
Village Park Restaurant Nasi Lemak
Restoran Wong Mei Kee
TIP: The stall opens from 12.30 to 3pm only. Go around 12.15pm to secure seats. The roast pork is worth it. Stall helpers will come to you for your orders, the Q is for takeaways only.
Chef Chew Kitchen
Signature River Curry Prawns Steamed fresh fish maw – outstanding!
Restoran Lai Fong
nice comfy bowl of beef kway teow! Super long wait. TIP: Go at 2.30pm
O & S Restaurant
TIP: Go before lunch around 10am to beat the crowd and sweltering heat. Good and varied breakfast selection -Wanton Mee, Curry Chee Cheong Fan, Yong Tau Foo, Char Kway Teow, Curry Mee and more!
Sweet Freedom Restaurant @ Damansara Kim
Travelling around the city is super easy these days with GRAB (do avoid the peak hours though). Average fare from our hotel in Bangsar to any of the restaurants we mentioned was about RM22.
However, if you are strapped for time, there’s always
where you will find popular Malaysian local street food under one roof. Did we mention that it’s air-conditioned? 😛 Hutong @ Lot 10
Stay tuned for our next post –
