If you’re planning to travel to a new country for the first time, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That’s why we recommend beginning with a food tour! Not only does it allow you to taste delicious local cuisine, but it also gives you a sense of the country’s culture and history through its food.
When we visited Kuala Lumpur, Simply Enak’s Kuala Lumpur Street Food Experience caught our attention. It’s a walking tour that takes you through the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s “Heritage Zone” in Chinatown, where you’ll find a variety of delicious street food vendors.
We met our tour guide, the charismatic and knowledgeable Pauline, at the local light rail station.
From there, she took us on a mouth-watering journey through the streets of Kuala Lumpur, stopping at various food stalls to try local delicacies and learn about their origins and preparation methods.
Our tour guide, Pauline, was an absolute gem! Her extensive knowledge of the local area and its cuisine was truly eye-opening.
As we walked through the bustling streets of the city, Pauline led us to local Indian cafes and street food vendors, and some hidden gems that tourists often miss.
We tried more than 15 different dishes on this tour, and we loved all of them. By the end of the tour, we were pretty much rolling back our hotel and couldn’t even have dinner!
Pauline’s insider knowledge was fascinating, and she shared it all with us, from the history of each place to the secrets of how their signature dishes were prepared. It was like having our own personal food encyclopedia!
One of the highlights of the tour was visiting a Laksa vendor that had been featured in Lonely Planet and CNN.
The soup was made with a unique combination of flavors that left our taste buds tantalized. We were blown away by how delicious it was!
Another unforgettable moment was getting to sample a coconut pancake and watching how it was made. The vendors were so friendly and welcoming, and we felt like we were truly experiencing the local culture.
We also loved the visit to the traditional Chinese food store. Here, Pauline explained different ingredients and how to use them.
Having grown up in the area, it was clear Pauline knew it like the back of her hand. Her passion for the local food scene was infectious, and we left the tour with very happy stomachs and a newfound appreciation for Kuala Lumpur’s culinary delights.
