6 Places to Eat You Absolutely CANNOT Miss When You Visit Kuala Lumpur

In October 5, 2018, I dove into the unknown and started a big trip around the world, at least that is the aim. I’m starting with Asia and seeing how far my money and visas can take me!

My first stop is Kuala Lumpur. I never really had the urge to visit Kuala Lumpur, or Malaysia in general. I had no particular reason for it either, I just never thought about it. That was until I met a huge bunch of awesome Malaysians who were visiting my country, on many separate occasions. They are one of the best people I’ve encountered in my life. From then on, I vowed to visit them one day. Fast forward to six years and 10 kilos later, I’m here.


As expected, I was spoon fed with a list of so amazing places to go to, with the best dishes Malaysia can offer. I went to most of them. Even I have my limits to eating!

I knew I had to share all the amazing food spots I’ve visited. They’re too good for you to pass up and if you’re into food as much as I am, you’ll love every place I am listing in this article.

Frankly, this has been the most I’ve eaten within a span of a few weeks, or even just comparing my regular day back home to a day in Malaysia. But you know what? I didn’t care. I’ll think about losing weight later but for this leg of my trip, I have to try everything.

Malaysia is a melting pot of so many cultures. There are so many kinds of food you have to absolutely try. Even in my three-times-a-day-for-a-few-weeks kind of eating, I have not tried everything just yet. However, I can say I’ve tasted quite a lot of great food and that’s enough for me.

So let’s get right down to the list, shall we? Here are some places to eat in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — and you absolutely CANNOT miss it.
