1 January, 2014

During a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur with TigerAir and Standard Chartered, we had the opportunity to explore some of Kuala Lumpur’s best street food from the Seng Kee Claypot Loh Shu Fun to the Imbi Market Sisters’ Crispy Popiah. We will be sharing more details over the next few blog posts on the top 5 places for Kuala Lumpur’s street eats e.g. detailed instructions on how to get there and what to order. For now, let me provide a pictoral summary of our food trail in Kuala Lumpur and a short day trip to the Batu Caves.

    Kuala Lumpur, is the capital and most populous city in Malaysia. More than any other spot in the country, Kuala Lumpur, or “KL” as it is commonly known, is the focal point of new Malaysia. Whole country is very nice and many thing to do.

    The claypot loh shu fun at Seng Kee in Chinatown IS a must try indeed. We will always recommend our guest staying at The 5 Elements Hotel to try each and every offering there is in Chinatown to experience the Malaysian culinary scene.

    Great photos. Enjoy the food photos a lot, I thought the food in KL was great. In these photos the monkeys look cute but in reality the ones at Batu Caves are rather naughty! Stole my water bottle!
