DAY 1 - KL’s Urban Charm Evening Food Tour

Taste what makes Malaysia great on this evening culinary journey through the food courts and frenetic streets of Kuala Lumpur.

Begin the journey at the Park Royal KL Hotel before setting off a very short walk to a KL institution, Lot 10 Hutong food court.  The basement-level food mecca sets itself apart from other food courts as all restaurants are hand-picked, many owned and operated by 2nd and 3rd generation families. Here, be introduced to the Malaysia’s signature sweet: cendol, which is made from shaved ice and topped with neon green pandan jelly, coconut milk and palm sugar. In 2013, Malaysia's own Department of National Heritage classified cendol as an "Intangible Heritage Object". Scoop up this first treat and enjoy an icy respite from the tropical heat before the journeying down to the heart of Chinatown by train on KL’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). 

Upon arrival Pasar Seni MRT station, walk to Sri Maha Temple, the city’s main Hindu temple, to hear how this place of worship became the centre of KL’s Indian community.  Afterwards take a short walk through the streets to a local restaurant specialising in roti canai, an Indian-influenced flatbread served with curry and soup.  Roti canai is a popular breakfast and snack dish in Malaysia, and one of the most famous examples of Malaysian Indian cuisine.

Continue the walk to a century-old biscuit business, well-known for their trademark wedding cakes and traditional pastries. Located in KL’s thriving Chinatown, sample a piece of wife/husband cookies while a knowledgeable guide explains about Chinese wedding traditions. This is also a good place to get some traditional Chinese pastries to bring home for a delicious souvenir.

Next, visit a hidden café to sample hand-crafted teas and coffees.  The hard-to-find, yet ever-so-good, café is in a traditional Chinese shophouse, bringing to life a bygone era of KL.

The final stop is the epitome of KL street food: Charcoal fire.  Roadside food stall.  Beautiful food.  Claypot chicken rice is undoubtedly one of the most popular Chinese dishes in Malaysia.  As tasty as it is photogenic, this dish will leave lasting memories. 

Travel to Bukit Bintang station by MRT, before bidding farewell to the guide and returning to the hotel.
