Ampang Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Ampang

Among the list of best restaurants in Ampang to visit, you will find such a wide choice of cuisine options, from top notch Chinese, Thai and Pan-Asian, to western, Vietnamese, and Italian cuisine represented. Ampang is basically an uptown neighbourhood, close enough to the best city action but still sporting a posh, exclusive atmosphere. As a result, Ampang restaurants feature that same level of exclusivity, with more than a few destination restaurants, particularly since the emergence of The Intermark KL, an integrated development housing a number of award winning restaurants.

In the eyes of Kuala Lumpur foodies, and even out-of-towners, the best places to eat in Ampang have a certain cachet, with enviable locations in the heart of the city, as well as gorgeous décor designed to draw in the city’s chic, urban dwellers. While the more upscale restaurants have plenty of pull in this section of town, there are also up-and-coming dining rooms with nightclub vibes, and even successful see-and-be-seen hotspots almost everyone in Kuala Lumpur knows about. Read on to find out more about the best Ampang restaurants in Kuala Lumpur…

La Mexicana Ampang

A far cry from a fussy upmarket cantina, La Mexicana is a city taqueria set on Lorong Nibong, off Jalan Ampang in the heart of KL. Food wise, it delves not only into simple tacos and tamales, but also features a menu of regional Mexican cuisines. Setting it apart and giving it an edge over other tempting Mexican restaurants in KL are its fresh, meaty tacos – our favourite is the tacos campechanos (RM22), corn tortillas jammed with pork meat, cilantro, onion shavings, and Molcajete red sauce. Furthermore, though the meat menu selections excel at this KL eatery, vegetarian options are plenty satisfying too – the RM20 guacamole served with homemade fried corn chips are great starters with the avocados pureed beautifully with ripe tomatoes, onions and flavoured with a hint of lime.
