Old Markets & Beyond: Kuala Lumpur Food 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 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.

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.

*Sorry veggies, this food tour isn’t for you. We’re working on a meat-free KL tour which we hope to launch soon.

**Vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every Kuala Lumpur food tour will be the same. Fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff. 

"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. "
