Having multiple ethnicities where you live gives you great chance to be apart of so many celebrations. And with all these celebrations there is always a meal. So you see, us Malaysians take our food very seriously.Join Food Tour Malaysia Food in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur is unique. Some dishes here you will not be able to find in other parts of the country, and if you do, chances are that they probably could trace their roots to these 2 cities. Penang being the only other exception. The daily ritual of eating communally is one of the most endearing of Malaysian experiences. It is warm, and it’s at the dinner table where you get to really understand and get the authentic ‘feel’, the heartbeat of the Malaysian community. « less

My mum and I did the off the eaten track tour with Farah and can't stop talking about it. Farah picked us up and drove us around to her favourite Malay, Chinese and Indian eateries. The dishes we tried were not something we would ever have tried ourselves but were amazing and super authentic. Farah made sure that all of... More

This was my first food tour. After doing "Off the Eaten Track", I can't wait to do more. Our guide Farah was outstanding! Very knowledgeable, very friendly. Seemed like we were going out with our local Malaysian friend. Farah shared her passion for food and pride in her country. She not only introduced us to the various cuisines of Malaysia,... More

We've just got back from our food tour with Farah and have had an amazing night out! Getting out of the city centre to eat like a local, we've had Malay, Chinese and Indian food. I feel like I've learnt so much about the people and culture tonight through their food. Farah was a fantastic guide, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable.... More

Our guide farah was so helpful with the questions my partner had about our visit, and she told us so much about each of the cultures we visited. The food was great and I definitely would not have tried some of the stuff bymyself! It was nice to have someone who was so enthusiastic abou her job.

Our guide Farah was an amazing food guide and made our Malaysian food tour unforgettable. She went out of her way to ensure we were all fully satisfied at each stop, answered all questions in great detail, and treated us as we were old friends, not customers. Tip- DO -NOT eat anything prior to your tour as Farah feeds you... More

We are expats living in KL and after over a year here we finally made time to do a food tour. We did Off the Eaten Track with Piaree and we had a great time. The places we went were certainly ones that we'd never been to, but we will now go back to (if we can find them!) and... More

Farah was my guide for the 'Off The Eaten Track' tour, where I along with two other British couples explored some hidden pockets of Kuala Lumpur for hours. We ate in three phases, sneaking in a quick market stop for pancakes as well. Our stops covered the three main ethnic groups in Malaysia: Malays, Chinese, and Indians. I was delighted... More

I travelled to Malaysia with my wife and stayed with her family who still lives there and had a nice time visiting many of those outdoor eateries. Most of them would be closed up in my country for heath reasons but no one seemed concerned about the periodic sewer smell and the car exhaust. The food was very good and... More
