Great food, great guide; highly recommend!

Such a great tour! Highly recommend.

I went back in January 2020 with my friend who had been living in KL since August. The food was great, of course, but our guide, Ken, really made the experience. He was courteous, funny, and knowledgable, and I felt like he really enjoyed sharing his favorite spots and meeting new people.

Make sure to show up hungry and to pace yourself so that you're not stuffed before the last stop!
Malaysian + Chinese + Indian = Yum!

Timothy was a great guide, who also safely drove us to each location. The amount of food was insane. Come hungry! The location of the first stop is a little out of town, but it's an authentic Malaysian eatery. I love that the Chinese stop follows the Chinese market. Having visited from China for CNY, I did not want Chinese food. I already have that! However, the sour noodle soup we ate at the Chinese market was one of the best bowls of noodles I've ever had! Lastly, my only complaint was that we couldn't spend 3+ hours at the Indian restaurant. So delicious! He even took us to the city center at the end of the night. It was a great time. Well worth it. Thanks!
Great introduction to the varied foods of Malaysis

My hubby and I met our guide at a train station Outside of the centre of KL and he first took us to a nearby bustling Malay street food court where we sampled delicious small portions. Then onto Chinese food courts, and finally Indian delicacies. All interspersed with some guided sight seeing which of course is so different at night. It was a wonderful way to spend 4 hours and a great introduction to KL and the foods of Malaysia.
Very Knowledgeable Guide for Great Food Adventures

If you want to learn about the cultural and history behind what the locals in KL eat then this is your tour! Wonderful food served at Malay; Malay Chinese and Malay Indian food neighborhood restaurants and night markets.
Food at our destinations was prepared upon our arrival - fresh- and to our spicy specifications. While we like spicy nothing served was so spicy that it detracted from experiencing the new foods and flavors.
PACE yourself. Don’t fill up on your first stop because there are so many more tasty bites to try at the next neighborhood.
Bonus: Our guide gave us great historical and cultural info about the city as we drove to our 3 stops.
