Private Half-Day: The Ultimate Kuala Lumpur Food Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.
