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.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening in KL. Our guide, Charles, was interesting, funny and knowledgeable. Even though it rained pretty hard on this tour, the 7 of us on this tour had a great time. And the food...OMG. I still dream about it.We spent 4 hours visiting various hawker malls, and even strolled through the Brickyards (little... More

Just go! It’s the perfect way to get introduced to KL. The tour is very relaxed and tailored to each group, so it feels like more a friend taking you around to some favorite spots and making some suggestions, rather than a rushed tour group itinerary (and there is no pressure to like every item). I’m sure that in any... More

A great night out in KL with Charles as our guide. Having arrived late at the pick up point due to transport problems,we thought our evening would be over before it had even started ! However, Charles had waited patiently for us, & greeted us with a smile. There was only one other person with us for the night, which... More

Our guide, Farah, took our group of six people to four places where we sampled several dishes from each of the three main cuisines of Malaysia - Malay, Chinese and Indian. All places were favourites of KL locals and weren't touristy. Farah was very knowledgeable about Malaysian food, culture and history - which helped getting a handle on the dizzying... More

We joined the tour last night. We were 6 persons and Farah was our guide. She's a very lovely person and she explained a lot about the Malaysian food culture. We drove in a small bus from restaurant to restaurant and Farah told us about the different food during the drive. First restaurant was a Malaysian one. The second was... More

We had the most delicious time with our guide Farah and a group of six. We enjoyed every bite of this tour and can highly recommend it. From Malay to Chinese and Indian food- we tasted the variety of the Malaysian cuisine.

If you want to experience the real taste of Kuala Lumpur than you have to book a food tour with Food Tour Malaysia. You will have a chance to try different types of food and cooking styles. I can assure you that you... More

Loved our food tour with Charlie. We did the Off the Eaten Track tour and overall, felt like we got a little taste of every part of KL. The street food places we visited were so fun, exciting and varied. My favorite was the satay and nasi lemak.
