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.

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 72 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.
