Owner description: Food has always been part of our communities. Having multiple ethnicities where you live gives you great chance to be a part of so many celebrations. And with all these celebrations there is always a meal. So you see, us Malaysians take our food very seriously. Food Tour Malaysia Food in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur is unique. Some dishes here you will not be able to find in other parts of the country, and if you do, chances are that they probably could trace their roots to these 2 cities. Penang being the only other exception. The daily ritual of eating communally is one of the most endearing of Malaysian experiences. It is warm, and it's at the dinner table where you get to really understand and get the authentic 'feel', the heartbeat of the Malaysian community.

“Thanks Charles GREAT NITE.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2015

Picked up by Charles with another couple for a good evening of local food and Malayasian culture. Stopped at some interesting place to chow down on great food. It was great to mix among the local people to get the feel of everyday life in KL. Thanks again Charles for a great time and would recommend this for everyone visiting KL.

“Introduction to good Malaysian food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2015

I went for a KL Food Walk and my tour guide was Charles. He was very informative, introducing us to Malaysia, the local culture and of course the food! However, rain hampered our tour, resulting in lost time. I was hoping to visit more places though. The food we had was delicious! We had local Indian food, snacks and tried Chinese food as well. Surprisingly we didn't eat Malay food like nasi lemak. Overall, a good tour and not to be missed when you are in KL.

“A must do in KL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2015 via mobile

My girlfriend and I recently did the Off the Eaten Track tour in KL, with the brilliant Farah as our guide. The food was delicious, Farah is so knowledgeable and gives a great insight into local cuisine and history. One word of advice - arrive on an empty stomach!

“A brilliant way to spend an evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2015

This was definitely one of the highlights of our time in KL. You start the tour several stops out of central KL at Taman Paramount station where we were met by the wonderful Farah. Over the course of the evening we learned so much about Malaysian food and the people who enjoy it. We went to places we would never have found on our own and ate food we would never have tried without this tour. Farah clearly loves food from all the ethnic groups in Malaysia and her enthusiasm is infectious. We had a great time and we were even dropped off back at our hotel in central KL at the end of the night.

The tour was great value and I would highly recommend it.
