About your Kuala Lumpur tour

Bored of the same old tourist restaurants? Join our small-group evening foodie tour of Kuala Lumpur to get to grips with the Malaysian capital’s cuisine. You’ll wind through the streets of Kuala Lumpur on a 4-hour foodie extravaganza sampling real Malaysian cuisine.

Dive into one of the city’s best wet markets on this chef-designed tour to learn about Malaysian produce and taste fine examples of classics like rendang, flame-barbecued chicken skewers with rich peanut satay, banana-leaf wrapped grilled mackerel and cendol durian, a creamy cold dessert topped with the king of fruits. Along the way, you’ll discover some of the Malay peninsula’s rarer dishes like nasi kerabu, a blue rice dish spiked with blue pea flowers.

Why this tour is awesome

If you’re looking for a food tour that truly gets to the heart of the city’s cuisine, there’s no better experience than our nightly food feast. Escape the tourist traps, and get ready for a gastronomic ride you will never forget.

There's no one more qualified to guide you on a small-group Kuala Lumpur food tour that Chef Faris. Born and bred in the city and with a deep understanding about the complexities of Malaysian cuisine, what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing.
