Real Malaysians Eat in Coffeeshops
Bad enough that Netflix decided to leave Malaysia out of its Street Food series; salt to injury was a magazine that listed Singapore as the best in the world for street food, and Malaysia didn’t even make it to Top 10!
A typical Malaysian meal is the sum of many parts, a melting pot of cultures played out in different dishes. Some of the best food isn’t from expensive classy, restaurants or hipster cafes (which we also have plenty of), but found in the coffeeshops where the locals eat everyday.
If you are new to Malaysia and would like to learn more about my food culture, join me as I introduce you to my favourite hawker stalls in the Klang Valley, and while you eat, I’ll regale you with nuggets of information on Malaysian history, culture and food. I promise you’ll come away with a new appreciation for our food and probably, a wider waistline.
Be prepared for a rich assortment of flavours as there’s going to be something savoury, spicy, sour and sweet, and maybe even all at once in one single dish!
Food Explorations are conducted everyday, based on booking, minimum two (2) adults. Transportation, food and drinks (non alcoholic) are all covered, however, personal shopping is not included in fees.
We’ll be visiting a couple of places so bring along a healthy appetite and an adventurous palate; do state your allergies and concerns. Dress for occasion, and come in your most comfortable self!
What you will see: a typical local market selling vegetables and live produce, as well as plenty of streetfood and some shopping to be done as well; lip-smacking local dishes at popular coffeeshops and eateries where only the locals go; and ubiquitous desserts found only in this part of the world.
