Food in Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur

We really loved travelling in Malaysia. It has amazing nature  (diving, hiking, caves, beaches…), cities, and temples, but what we really remember and miss is the food! We tried a lot of different things – mainly street food, and were rarely disappointed. Here is a taste of some of the treats we tried in Kuala Lumpur.

Jackfruit at the market

These are Jackfruit (I believe, although I always get them confused with breadfruit) and in the market stall in the background she also has Durian, Dragonfruit, Lychee, Mango, Bananas as well as other fruit.


This duck came with rice, hot sauce, and a broth to put over the rice for more flavour – its not complicated, but the small touches make all of the difference!!

Fish on the Barbie

Fish on the barbecue wrapped in Banana leaves.

Malaysian Sweets and Snacks

Banana Leaf

Traditional Indian Vegetarian Banana Leaf Meal.

Man making peanut pancakes

This man made the most delicious peanut pancakes – I think I must have eaten 3 or 4 of them in the week we spent in KL!


Ice Cendol is another one of my favourite treats – shaved ice with coconut milk, palm sugar syrup, green and black grass jelly and red beans – plus we added a bit of durian onto this one.

Mee Mamak

Mee Mamak was one of KB’s favourite foods in Malayisa – in every town it was a little bit different, but the plate was always empty minutes after being delivered.

Spicy Veggie Noodle Soup

This spicy vegetarian noodle soup was amazing – for such basic ingredients it had so much flavour.

Stay tuned – our favourite foods from other cities are coming soon!

Love, Lee+KB
