1. Visit different restaurants to experience all of Asia
Last but not least, Kuala Lampur’s food! So good! I think I had food from a different country every day. The fact that it’s halaal was just such a treat because we got to experience so many different cuisines and didn’t feel like we would need to hold back. Waygyu steaks on a stick (Japanese), Assam Prawn (Malaysian), Korean Chicken (Korean), Katsu Chicken (Japanese), Mala Seafood Noodle (Chinese) – Mala literally translating to hot and numbing.
2. Their mall food is good food
From markets to streets to even the mall (but it never felt like mall food). The Pavillion in KL boasts restaurants with food from literally everywhere and tastes really good. This is not typical mall food or a typical mall environment. The food is amazing and you would never think you’re in a mal.
3. Visit their markets
The night markets are open until the early mornings and have a chaotic but enchanting atmosphere to them. We went to the Jalan Alor market where we had fried fish and Tom Yum ( a Thai soup). Jackfruit juices and locally popular ice tea. These places are just bustling. The streets are busy and loud with food and drink and the people just out and about lining up for bubble tea, soups, fish, you name it and their drink menus are just as extensive as their food ones. Almost every food place boasting a wide variety of Asian food displayed in Bento boxes or traditional displays and then the occasional restaurant literally named “Western food” or “Moroccan food”
