Overview

With a mix of cultural influences on the nation's cuisine, it's no wonder that Malaysian food is a lip-smackingly complex beast.

We'll meet in the old district of Chow Kit and Kampung Baru, one of the last remaining districts that is yet to be developed into glassy high rises.

Don't expect other foreigners. Stroll in this local neighbourhood of nightly street eats, sampling a variety of 15+ tastings, carefully curated for their culinary history.

The flavours change across the year, but highlights include the fragrant bowls of laksa, hand stretched rotis, nasi lemak with piquant sambal and herbal chicken rendang, charcoal-grilled mackerel, and soothing iced cendol with custard-like durian. We'll end with a fine view of the mighty Petronas Twin Towers.

I'm sure you have a lot of your plate, but here's some food for thought. While it's possible to attempt such a culinary marathon yourself, you'd be one sandwich short of a Malaysian picnic not to join me on our moveable food feast.

Kiran was an amazing guide with an infectious enthusiasm for food. The Sambal Street food tour takes you through an older part of KL where mostly locals go to eat. Throughout the tour Kiran expertly weaved in history on Malaysia and KL. She was very informative and provided great descriptions of all of the 15 dishes we got to try. Great way to get a great flavour of the melting pot of cuisine available.

As it turned out I had already booked a hotel right near the area of the tour, but had I not signed up I would’ve missed so much. The foods were amazing and the cultural history and exploration made this an excellent experience. I would recommend this to anyone. Also I’m not a fan of Mangos but the smoothie at the end was delicious!

This was my second time joining this tour, but this time I had a different tour leader, Steve. While the food was similar and just as amazing as the first time I did this tour last June, Steve made it different for me in that he talked about food preparation in detail and how the different ethnic groups used different vegetables in their food preparation. This is one of the few tours in KL that is available to singles to book and it is great fun to mix with people from other places. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about both Malaysian food and the heritage of its people. Two highlights for me were the opportunity to make your own roti and the visit to the Kampung Bahru area that I doubt most tourists would even be aware of its existence.

The food was 10/10 and took us to some unique family Malaysian spots. Stephen took the time to explain each stop to us and gave us a real taste of the local cuisine.

Steve was an amazing tour guide! He not only showed us amazing food but also gave us the cultural background and quility information. Steve made us all feel very comfortable like we were all old friends. The food was incredible! It was so good eating from vendors I would normally be too scared to try. 100% worth the money this tour.
