If you are in Kuala Lumpur and want to experience the trendiest foods that you can enjoy while in this versatile city, you should try out all of the following five foods and drinks.
To start off, the trend of drinking your vegetables and fruits rather than eating them seems to have found its way fairly easily from America to Malaysia, as can be seen with the many and varied kiosks and stalls that serve healthy smoothies which are often consumed by fitness enthusiasts. Spinach, beetroots, carrots, kale and some other ingredients are fairly commonly found in these juices which are also known to carry out a detox effect on consumers. Juice D’Fruitz, La Juiceria and Jucify are testaments to the climbing demand for these meal replacement drinks. Fine dining is also picking up in Malaysia. Chef Darren Teoh of Dewahkan takes his own spin on fine dining with a collection of only fresh local produce as his show stoppers; a delicious array of well cooked and beautifully garnished meals await anybody who wishes to try out his exquisite recipes which are becoming a hit in the KL region. There are also quite a few serviced apartments in Kuala Lumpur such as the Ascott Kuala Lumpur that are close by to these venues; you could easily opt for a meal at one of these eateries if you happen to be putting up in the area.
Next on the list is succulent pork; Iberico, a quaint restaurant in Damansara, dedicates its entire menu to the infamous Spanish Black Pig. A veteran in pork, the restaurant has set off a trend in Kuala Lumpur where many consumers are now eager to try out the mouth-watering pork gastronomies created by this daring restaurant. Make sure you try this one out if you love your pork. Grilled food is also gaining popularity these days with many of the consumer market shifting to grill themed restaurants where succulent meats and fish are served alongside generous side dishes. These restaurants and small eateries can be found almost anywhere. Bringing up the rear are the desserts served at KL’s infamous Soft Serve parlours that are most probably your best choice for dessert if you are staying in the city.
