After meeting your guide at a central Kuala Lumpur location, easily accessible by the city’s Light Rail Transit, your small-group food tour begins as you board an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive to the KL neighborhood of your guide’s choice (the neighborhood(s) you visit are up to your expert guide and will vary based on the day of the week).

One such neighborhood you may visit is the Bangsar area, which boasts a wide array of food spots like mamak stalls serving traditional Tamil-Muslim cuisine, South Indian banana-leaf restaurants serving delectable treats on a banana leaf, and Malay warungs (small family-owned establishments serving both local and Western snacks). Or, you might head to Petaling Jaya, where you’ll visit a ‘round-the-clock hawker center (open-air food court) to try food from select stalls frequented by locals. Another possible destination is Brickfields, a popular hawker center famous for its South Indian restaurants and Chinese coffee shops serving traditional Chinese fare like dim sum.

No matter where you end up, rest assured that you’ll have a vibrant KL experience. As you follow your guide’s lead, you’ll weave through alleys and around food stalls with ease, knowing your guide will order your food and make sure you taste the most delicious dishes of the day (or night). Try nasi lemak, a fragrant coconut rice with chili paste, anchovies, peanuts and vegetables. Or maybe you’ll have stir-fried Chinese noodles; an assortment of Indian breads with chicken, fish and mutton curry; or Malaysian desserts such as ondeh ondeh, rice balls with palm sugar and coconut shavings. As you are introduced you to local favorites, you’ll experience interesting Malaysian customs with the comfort of a guide who knows all the ins and outs of KL’s food culture.

At the end of the tour, you’ll be driven back to the original meeting point.

Fantastic tour really enjoyed it. Our guide was very good she spoke very good English. We got to try lots of local food and drink and it made a change to get out of the Tourist area. Would recommend for any one visiting KL who love there food. If you like nice restaurants then this isn't for you.

This is a must do trip, it was superb. We were lucky to have Charles as our guide and Rubin drove us around in a spacious and very clean mini bus. Accompanied by two Australians and two Canadaians this was a very like minded group. They were great fun and contributed to the enjoyment level immensley. The tour was to finish at 10pm, we were still eating at 11.20pm. I think we would have still been at it now had it not been for a cruel rainstorm that interupted our enjoyment. To cap a perfect evening, Charles and Rubin dropped us all off at our hotel doors.
