Kuala Lumpur Food Tour: A Must For Adventurous Eaters!

Start time: 17.30

Finish time: 21.30

This food tour around Malaysia’s capital has been specifically designed for those who want to eat like a local. In the company of your expert guide, you will be taken around the winding streets of Kuala Lumpur and visit the most delicious restaurants, the likes of which travellers rarely find on their own!

This walking tour is physically achievable for most as the terrain is generally flat and there will be plenty of rest (that’s code for food!) stops along the way. 

This evening small-group tour will introduce you to popular Malaysian cuisine and there will be a grand total of 13-14 tastings over the course of the four-hour foodie tour. 

As well as eating your way through local restaurant food, you will also visit some of KL’s best wet markets to learn about the Malaysian produce and the history of this type of cuisine. 

Some examples of foods you might try include: rendang, satay chicken skewers, cendol durian and banana-leaf wrapped grilled mackerel. Did somebody say yum?!

***We don’t recommend eating before this tour. You will need all the room you can get for this taste of Malaysia!***

Let us know if there are children in your group when you place your booking. Child’s price is $27.50.
