Discover KL, gastronomically.
CNN once wrote that Malaysia’s food is the “sum of many delicious parts.” Fueled by the country's diverse cultural make-up, its capital city’s cuisine is a melting pot of flavours, spices, and cooking techniques, with influences derived from Thai, Chinese, Indonesian and Indian cuisines.
Variety is the name of the game in Kuala Lumpur. Proud of their multi-cultural heritage, Malaysians of all ethnicities – Malay, Chinese, Indian and others – are passionate about their food. Amidst the metropolitan sprawl dotted with historical monuments, skyscrapers, street markets, and giant shopping malls, you will find some of the most inimitable dishes in the world. They include its (unofficial) national dish, nasi lemak, which is simply rice steamed to fluffy perfection with coconut milk and served with dried anchovies, peanuts, eggs, cucumber, and sambal (an accompanying sauce made from chilli, spices and sometimes shrimp or anchovies).
