Meet your private guide at the AirAsia–Bukit Bintang Monorail station for a personalized 2-hour evening tour of Malaysian cuisine. Discuss local favorites before setting off toward the nightlife area of Jalan Bukit Bintang. Head to the Hutong Food Court for a taste of siew bao (crispy barbecued roasted chicken buns) and chicken curry puff, a pastry filled with savory chicken.

From here it's a short stroll to Jalan Alor, a bustling food street lined with rows of hawker stalls and seafood restaurants. Your guide will help you select the most delicious dim sum, along with a street food tasting of grilled satay lok lok with peanut sauce.

On arrival at the mamak (typical Malaysian eatery) at SK Corner, try the paper dosa, a paper-thin type of pancake eaten with several Indian sauces such as curry or coconut chutney. Before saying your good-byes, wash it all down with a glass of teh tarik, a popular drink of milk tea.

Not worth the money

After we met the guide we went to a food court in a mall where we had first meal. Then we walked along one street with food and finally we to an Indian restaurant where we had just a dessert. The tasting was always just a small piece of food. Nothing special. We learned bits of information but not much. We were not able to taste typical dish which you read about in travel guides. If you go directly to Jalan Alor without a guide you do no mistake and can taste by yourself selecting from menu knowing names of food from travel guide books. It was not worth the money at all.

In a short time got a good idea about the food in Kuala Lumpur. Tried several foods that I would have experienced without going on tour. The outside food markets were a lot of fun

We were met by staff on given time and place. He welcomed us, walked us to food street which was very close and busy area. He asked as what is our expectation from tour and we told him to learn about local food. But we found out that most of restaurants were selling Chinese food. few were local as well. We didn't enjoy the tour as the knowledge shared with us was about food presentation and eating cultures while our intention was to learn how Malay people prepare their food mainly how they cook. We were not taken to any kitchen where cooking could be seen closely. The tour guide also told us that we selected the wrong tout but actually this tour is supposed to be about Malay food as the name says. The worst part was that tour started at 6pm and finished at 7.20 while it was supposed to be two hours. We were offered to taste three samples from street vendors. I booked the tour with two children 11 and 15. Not enjoyed at all. Not recommended if you want to learn about Malaysian food.

Very bad tour. The guide would not even buy a water for us. DO NOT GET THIS TOUR EVER. WASTED OF YOUR MONEY. Our guide was a freelancer and probably saved money for him. he did not buy enough food to even try for all 5 of us. The worst tour guide and company. Hence 0 stars but I have to select at least one start for my review to be posted or I will give 0 stars.
