Full description
Meet your host at a pre-arranged meeting point and chat about your favorite foods and dishes before heading to the Jalan Bukit Bintang area to sample some fantastic street food options at Hutong Food Court. Sample some crispy barbecue roast chicken buns known as Siew Bao, and try a curry puff pastry filled with chicken that will bring baked goods close to your heart. Then, take a short stroll to Jalan Alor to discover where all the food magic really happens at your second tasting stop. Stroll among the rows of hawker stalls and watch the locals fill their tables with food. Try typical Chinese dim sum tasting bites, and get your lips around some Satay Lok Lok (grilled satay sticks) with a peanut sauce guaranteed to have you licking your fingers! Take the locals advice and eat at a Mamak food stall at Mamak SK Corner. Here, you can try some paper dosas and experience the very thin pancakes usually eaten with Indian sauces such as curry sauce or coconut chutney. Wash it all down with a typical teh tarik, a milk tea drink commonly found in South East Asia.

We had a lovely evening with Manjeet! She was extremely knowledgeable about the food, history, and culture of KL and Malaysia. In addition to teaching us about the foods we ate, she also taught us about Malaysian life and the different cultures within Malaysia. We have done a handful of food tours in multiple countries and this was one of the best. Manjeet also gave us some solid recommendations for the rest of our travels. Most importantly, she was fantastic with our daughter (18 mos). Highly recommend!

I'm glad that the first person was guided with a high degree of difficulty. At the food stall, I had satay and a mysterious drink (lime juice with dried plums) and it was very delicious. I've eaten satay several times, but the one I ate this time was the most delicious. The breast meat, skin, and thigh meat were evenly stabbed on the skewers, and the taste of the oil was also felt. The mysterious drink is a purveyor to the locals, so I understand why it is so popular. It was refreshing because it was based on lime juice, and the sweet and sour taste of dried plums matched. The temperature was high and I sweated so I drank a lot. At an Indian restaurant, I ate thin crepe-lik

Asian food in its diversity

The tour leads through the food mile of Bukit Bintang. Our companion contacted us the day before the tour. She was already at the meeting place when we arrived. She guided us through the evening in a very pleasant and friendly way. Sure you can do it alone, but the information about the food, land and people as well as about the city were very informative.
