After leaving Thailand, I had less than 24 hours in Kuala Lumpur before I flew back to New York. Too lazy to do my research, I followed Fathom Away's guide to eat my way through the city. I'm not a foodie. Either am I am a zealous tourist. I chose my offbeat path. I had some pretty food photos at the end of the day. Enjoy.
Mansion Tea Stall. Masjid Jamek stop. Food was good. Quite different from the Indian food I’ve had in New York. However, the soft-boiled eggs later proved to be problematic. Avoid at all cost if you have a weak stomach. Get the Roti Canai (without eggs). Teh Terik, an Indian milk tea, was delicious but was served hot in 90+ degree weather. I poured some ice over it to make an iced drink.
Coconut rice was excellent. The cucumbers were refreshing in a hot day.
The half-boiled eggs had taken a toll on me. Yut Kee was a few blocks from the aforementioned Nesi Lamek stalls. I realized that I walked past it on my way from Mension Tea Stall. I would have grabbed a cup of Kopi before heading to Nasi Lemak stalls. I felt silly following the guide so closely. Kopi was dark and sweet.
Petronas Towers to Kuala Lumpur is like Empire State to New York City. And no, I did not visit the Observatory.
Quick stop at Islamic Arts Museum of Malaysia.
Lot 10, food stalls under a roof.
I ventured my way into the famous Jalan Alor food street. I bought a durian which cost me about 10 USD. It’s an acquired taste. Unfortunately I did not enjoy it personally.
Free drinks for ladies before 11 PM on Wednesdays at Trader’s Hotel. I was there. They served gin and juice.
