In a cosmopolis known for its eclectic finesse, it shouldn’t be surprising that KL’s food culture is a fusion of stories from diverse lands and ethnicities. Here are some delicious delicacies you simply can’t skip!
A hearty, delicious, savoury-sweet start to your day, enjoyed best with a steaming mug of piquant Malaysian coffee, this rather ‘extra’ version of French toast is topped with lashings of butter, creamy coconutty kaya jam, and a half-boiled egg to add to the luscious contrast of flavours.
Whether you’ve spent a day on a lush nature hike, got your adrenaline fix at a high-octane adventure park, or spent your morning buzzing around the glitzy avenues and traditional labyrinths of the big city, nothing can satiate a ravenous appetite like the locally beloved staple rice dish. The first mouthful of Nasi Lemak, an infusion of coconut milk-soaked rice, spicily sweet sambal, succulent meat, light veggies, and crunchy peanuts, will have you hooked!
In all its decadent variations, from the lavish flavour profile of tamarind, mackerel, and ginger torch, topped with mint, chilli, herb, and fruit garnish that will serenade your tastebuds with the first spoonful of Assam Laksa to the aromatic curry-imbibed Sarawak Laksa with its richness of coconut cream, homegrown spices, zesty lime, seafood, omelette, and herbs, this phenomenal broth won’t disappoint. If you’re seeking a premier hotel in Raja Chulan proffering prime access to KL’s chief enticements, venture no further than the likes of lyf Raja Chulan Kuala Lumpur.
An exquisitely flavourful snack, these mouthwatering skewers of lightly seared meat drizzled with delightful peanut sauce and paired with dainty cubes of fluffy rice are perfect for those craving light, nourishing, and lip-smacking meals.
