Where & What to Eat in Kuala Lumpur

Featuring a melting pot of vibrant cultures and traditions, Kuala Lumpur is a food haven with a wide variety of fare. Hawker centres, kopitiams (coffee shops) and fine-dining restaurants permeate its gastronomic scene but this is just the tip of the culinary iceberg. KLCC and Bukit Bintang house a number of high-end ‘restobars’ that are popular with the young and yuppie crowd.

Meanwhile if you’re looking for KL’s best Chinese hawker fare then the roadside stalls along Jalan Alor are your best bet. We’ve unearthed some of the city’s finest gastronomic finds and listed them below but you should explore KL foodie scene since the best part of the city’s gastronomic experience is in hunting for these edible treasures.
