Description: Food has always been part of our communities. Having multiple ethnicities...
Food has always been part of our communities. Having multiple ethnicities where you live gives you great chance to be a part of so many celebrations. And with all these celebrations there is always a meal. So you see, us Malaysians take our food very seriously. 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.

We have done about 10 food tours across the globe, and this was one of the more fun ones. I highly recommend it! We had one night in KL on our way home and this was the perfect way to see and experience many parts of the city that I otherwise never would have. We did the "off the beaten... More

The leader of the tour, the lovely Piaree, went out of her way after the first of the three food stops to come pick me up even though I was late, and she was a delight to converse with. Thanks, Piaree! Also, the food was great!

I took 2 tours with this company and they were both excellent. However, my favorite has to be Off the Eaten Track for sure! I had to take a 30-minute train ride outside the city to reach a quiet, residential area where we would meet our guide. I was quite confused and somewhat skeptical while I waited, thinking, “where’s the... More

We were 8 people on this tour, Off the eaten Track, with Charlie as our excellent guide. All of us got along and Charlie was kind, fun and attentive. We saw different places and tried food, we never would have tried on our own. I am a bit picky with what I eat, but all was so delicious that even... More
