Best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur - from Nasi Lemak to Malaysian satay, the capital city of Malaysia is full of not just street favourites and night markets. But also boasts of some amazing restaurants. They have just had the Michelin Guide come in this year. They have some of the Best bars, the speakeasy scene is thriving and there are so many on the 50 best discovery list as well. And then there are Malaysian classics! From some of the most amazing cafes to rooftop bars.
Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur
The options are plenty, from restaurants in Bukit Bintang to Chinatown to more upscale cafes. I mostly prefer to get the best out of street food, especially when in a new country. And South East Asia is just always sprawling with mind-boggling options. Kuala Lumpur is also home to some of the most amazing night food markets, that go as late as 3 AM. Check out all the amazing street foods you need to get your hands on here.
The curry houses are a common occurrence here, much like Indian dhabas - and the food is pretty kickass. Apart from getting all the traditional Malaysian classics, you can also find dosas and idli here for breakfast. They also have a buffet spread, where you buy the plate and you can add as many curries as you would like. So worth the buck and in case you are feeling homesick, the dhal will be quite comforting.
SPECIAL MENTION STEAM BOATS - LOK LOK
Not exactly a restaurant, but Chinese Stemboats or Lok Lok can be found all over the city. And they make for a perfect late-night meal. We stopped by at Fat Brothers just because we were very intrigued. The concept is simple, each meat or veggie is propped up on a stick, and the sticks are colour coded. The price is decided as per the colour of the stick you have chosen. You can choose to get them steamed or deep-fried. We had some deep-fried crab sticks, crab balls, enoki wrapped bacon, and pepperoni. And it was all too tasty after a night of drinking and FIFA!
