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 met Charles our guide at a local train station (Taman Paramount - very accessible from KLCC - same line!) and were escorted in a mini van to different locations. The expectations were set for this tour as "nice and easy, easy going" and it was! First we checked out a local food court for what Charles described as "one... More

I just got back from a night tour of different food places around KL with Charles. It was great fun, entertaining, and informative. It was a small group of four, two girls from Scotland my sister Sandy and myself. My only complaint is that I wish my stomach was bigger so that I could have tasted more of the different... More

Aswell as enjoyable food Farah was an excellent tour guide, giving us historical and cultural information about the areas we visited and the culture behind each of the dishes.

I'm writing this review on the brink of a serious food coma, We've just finished our tour with Charles and it was amazing. I truly believe some people have the right personality to be tour guides and Charles definitely has the gift, combining information with humor and tending to every need of his customers. We were able to understand the... More

Farah gave a a great tour to a group of us in October 2014. She was warm, personable, and knew the food scene in Malaysia. We had a terrific time. Highly recommended.

A great way to taste Malaysia and see the streets of KL. There were 15 of us on the tour - which was a good group size. The tour commences at a local railway station and proceeds through the Indian quarter where we had lunch at a local restaurant. The food eaten with our hands was very tasty - with... More
