Spicy curries, grilled satay skewers and noodles in all shapes and sizes: the streets of Kuala Lumpur offer a delicious culinary feast. The food on the street is as diverse as the city’s inhabitants. Malay, Chinese and Indian food stalls stand side by side. Their stoves operate night and day so there is plenty of time to explore the diverse cuisine of Malaysia, one food stall at a time.
It is quite common in Malaysia to eat 6 small meals a day, often outside of the home and in the company of friends. The food stalls in Kuala Lumpur are usually pretty busy. People sit on plastic chairs and chat with their friends as fragrant rice or noodle dishes are brought out one at the time. The streets of Kuala Lumpur are full of tempting delicacies; try a Malaysian deep-fried snack, a Japanese noodle soup, an Indian curry or an Arab stuffed pita.
