What to expect
Meet your guide at your preferred time near Chow Kit Market and start your private food tasting tour amid the fresh produce stands. Tantalize your appetite with a mixed fruit basket prepared for you, and learn about the cultural influences that make up Malaysia's most popular dishes. Next up is the Malay enclave of Kampung Baru. Here, savor nasi lemak, a coconut rice dish that locals eat for breakfast. Try pisang goreng, a popular street food snack made of bananas, and taste freshly prepared satay. You'll take an Uber to Jalan Masjid India where savory flavors include paper dosa, an Indian classic made of paper-thin pancake. Sample a mini tiffin, a dish with several sauce options from curry to coconut chutney, accompanied by Madras tea.  Then experience Chinese influences on Malaysian cuisine among the Madras Lane hawker stalls. Start with curry mee, a spicy curried noodle soup with a variety of toppings. You’re in for a treat with yong tau foo, a Hakka Chinese dish of tofu filled with deliciousness. Finish off your feast with a glass of cendol, a creamy dessert made of coconut milk and green starched jelly noodles.

Food Tour with May

Great food tour with May, she is a great host.
Feb 2020
We had a great experience with May as our guide in Kuala Lumpur. I've
done a few walking food tours in different places but my friends had
never done one before, and they really enjoyed it. I found May to be
one of the best guides I've ever met - she knew a great variety of
places to take us to eat, from hipster cafes to back street food
stalls (with fantastically tasty chicken rice!) and also gave us some
great insights into landmarks around KL. I definitely recommend May as
your guide in KL.

Average food tour in average corners of the city. Quite expensive for the tour duration and food types experienced (£50 per head). We've done more varied, inspiring tours in other parts of Malaysia and Asia.

We spend a wonderful evening tasting delicious food in vibrant and colourful locations. May did an excellent job showing us around and giving us an insight on local food and culture. For us this was a highlight of our tour and we can recommend this tour with May as a „must do“ for Kuala Lumpur!

More than a food tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a wonderful time with May. She is so knowledgable about the
history and culture of all of the sites we visited. Thank you for
exposing us to new foods and experiences! You made our KL trip such a
fun adventure! We especially loved visiting the Taoist temple in
Chinatown where we observed people celebrating the Chinese New Year,
visiting the Hindu temple, viewing the street art, and trying the
spicy pork noodles, peanut pancakes, dosas, cham, and teh tarik!! THANK YOU
so much for still honoring our tour reservation despite the holiday.
Happy New Year!

I was lucky enough to be herer over Chinese NY and May talked me through all the traditions as well as knowing exactly the best place to be to see a traditional lion dance! That, together with fabulous street food and lovely cafe culture made this really special, thank you May! I feel a friend had been made x

Great way to spend 3hrs in KL
Jan 2020
Thank you R. My family really enjoyed the 3hr tour. From the
wonderful variety of food tastings, to the interesting temple and
cultural history information. Appreciate you customising the tour as
well to fit in some specific food requests. The seven of us had a
great time. We only had a few hours in KL so this was the perfect
thing to do. Highly recommended!

May’s Food Tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a great Food Tour this evening with May.

She was an interesting, knowledgeable and informative guide who adapted the tour to suit us.

We sampled a fantastic range of food at some authentic street food venues and she introduced to some fantastic foods we would never have tried on our own!

A truly unique experience in this amazing city.

Thank you May!

Lovely choices of local and historic restaurants. Ruth was a fantastic guide and we enjoyed every minute. Not sure if we will eat again as we left the tour so full of food.
