Say goodbye to your local private guide

Meet your private guide at the AirAsia–Bukit Bintang Monorail station for a personalized 2-hour evening tour of Malaysian cuisine. Discuss local favorites before setting off toward the nightlife area of Jalan Bukit Bintang. Head to the Hutong Food Court for a taste of siew bao (crispy barbecued roasted chicken buns) and chicken curry puff, a pastry filled with savory chicken.

From here it's a short stroll to Jalan Alor, a bustling food street lined with rows of hawker stalls and seafood restaurants. Your guide will help you select the most delicious dim sum, along with a street food tasting of grilled satay lok lok with peanut sauce.

On arrival at the mamak (typical Malaysian eatery) at SK Corner, try the paper dosa, a paper-thin type of pancake eaten with several Indian sauces such as curry or coconut chutney. Before saying your good-byes, wash it all down with a glass of teh tarik, a popular drink of milk tea.

Great Food tour experience 💕

Amazing food tour! Reka was our guide. She is a super kind and accommodating person, who took the time to walk us around and explain to us how to do street food in KL! She took us to the best spots to have authentic food - you will want to go back 💕. She also gave us great tips and recommendations around the city. We had such a pleasant night with her! We are so glad we took this tour. Thank you.

It’s luck of the draw with guides but we drew well with Siddoz. He knew all the back alleyways and fun food stalls and sprinkled in the right amount of other info.

Not worth the money
Jiri_H

After we met the guide we went to a food court in a mall where we had first meal. Then we walked along one street with food and finally we to an Indian restaurant where we had just a dessert. The tasting was always just a small piece of food. Nothing special. We learned bits of information but not much. We were not able to taste typical dish which you read about in travel guides. If you go directly to Jalan Alor without a guide you do no mistake and can taste by yourself selecting from menu knowing names of food from travel guide books. It was not worth the money at all.

In a short time got a good idea about the food in Kuala Lumpur. Tried several foods that I would have experienced without going on tour. The outside food markets were a lot of fun

We were met by staff on given time and place. He welcomed us, walked us to food street which was very close and busy area. He asked as what is our expectation from tour and we told him to learn about local food. But we found out that most of restaurants were selling Chinese food. few were local as well. We didn't enjoy the tour as the knowledge shared with us was about food presentation and eating cultures while our intention was to learn how Malay people prepare their food mainly how they cook. We were not taken to any kitchen where cooking could be seen closely. The tour guide also told us that we selected the wrong tout but actually this tour is supposed to be about Malay food as the name says. The worst part was that tour started at 6pm and finished at 7.20 while it was supposed to be two hours. We were offered to taste three samples from street vendors. I booked the tour with two children 11 and 15. Not enjoyed at all. Not recommended if you want to learn about Malaysian food.

Very bad tour. The guide would not even buy a water for us. DO NOT GET THIS TOUR EVER. WASTED OF YOUR MONEY. Our guide was a freelancer and probably saved money for him. he did not buy enough food to even try for all 5 of us. The worst tour guide and company. Hence 0 stars but I have to select at least one start for my review to be posted or I will give 0 stars.

Our guide brought us to several food stalls in Bukit Bintang, an area of the city where locals eat, showed us the best of the area. He was not prepared to deal with vegetarians, but we got to taste durian instead!

This was a perfect food intro to KL! We had a wonderful host in TK who introduced us to the BEST satay I've ever had, yummiest chicken wings and delicious paper thin dhosa and roti! The dim sum and pork pastries were also off the hook! It's so great to walk around with a local expert! Recommend!

A truly pleasant way to spend our first evening in KL , being expertly guided by ''Sid'' . Enjoyed an excellent array of different dishes and cuisines along Jalan Alor and nearby locations . The only minor problem was linking up with Sid at the start of the evening . However , once we had met , he proved to be a knowledgeable , informative , interesting and helpful guide whose company we much enjoyed . He finally organised Uber transport for us back to our hotel .

The tour was fantastic and definitely a highlight for us during our short stay in Kuala Lumpur. Our guide, TK was amazing and went above and beyond our expectations. He is passionate about Malaysian food and will encourage you to try new things in places we would never have found by ourselves. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is keen to try local food.

Quedaron de recogerme a las 7:30 una estación de tren de Bukin Bintang y nadie me busco. Ahí estuve esperando me tome la foto para que vieran el lugar y la hora. Así que no pude tomar mi tour de comida. Es un fraude y tengo derecho a que me devuelvan mi dinero . $ 53 dólares
