Kuala Lumpur: Half Day Local Food Walking Tour
- Enjoy the sight of the famous Masjid Jamek mosque
- Sample halal Malay foods at the buzzing Wet Market
- Pass through the lively and stimulating Masjid India Street
- Experience the traditional village of Kampung Baru
In a metropolis filled with fast food and sleek eateries, the simple pleasures of foods of days gone by from different traditions and regions around the country can still be enjoyed. The first tastings take place in the oldest neighborhood of Kuala Lumpur surrounding the Central Market, where the same restaurants and stalls have been feeding hungry locals and visitors for generations.
From there, the tour moves on to Jalan Masjid India, a bustling commercial street packed with snacks and street foods laced with the heady aroma of distinctly Indian spices. Then, a short monorail trip leads to Kampung Baru, or the “New Village” in Malay, originally settled by Malay farmers in the 1890s.
Shop in the local markets filled with fresh produce and pass historical wooden homes down leafy lanes on the way to sample a host of local delicacies that have their roots in the north and east of the country. The tour is a delicious way to discover the people, places, traditions and flavors that make up Malaysia. Makan makan! Let's eat!
