Foodies will experience heaven in every bite they take out of Kuala Lumpur’s vibrant cuisine of multi-cultural influences. Make sure you invest in a centrally located service apartment in Kuala Lumpur to fully soak up the delicious flavours of the various cuisines on offer. Perhaps consider the Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur which is a perfect choice of luxury service apartments near HSC Medical Centre KL just in case you suffer a bout of indigestion from your gastronomical indulgences! But the experience is well worth it, as you are presented with a cultural mélange spanning Malay, Indian, and Chinese food places, peppered with a touch of Southeast Asian, Javanese, Sumatran, Japanese, Thai, and Arabian influences thrown in for good measure. The majority of dishes feature ample herbal accompaniments in the form of kaffir lime, lemon grass, ginger, tamarind, and galangal, topped with a generous dose of coconut milk which forms the exquisite base of many Asian curries and soups. For the large part, you will find yourself encountering a creative mix of four basic ingredients: rice, noodles (a variety), meat, and vegetables, peppered with chili paste and shrimp paste. A central location with culinary offerings that specifically targets tourists is the Lot 10 Hutong, a vibrant selection of food outlets that are centrally located, adjacent to the Bukit Bintang Monorail stop. A good rule of thumb is to check which food stalls are the busiest, because they tend to feature quality meals, and you’ll also stand the chance of getting them cheaper too. Kim Lian Kee dates back four generations, and their Hokkien Mee dish, with spicy yellow noodles and stir-fried with prawns, pork slices, chewy squid, and Chinese leaf, is a great entrée on a budget. For desert and accompaniments, Yut Kee Kopitiam features a rich and dark Kopi, (coffee), which comes with a luxuriant dose of condensed milk for an authentic and lip-smacking latte, Malay style. Their marble cake is also to die for. But their prime draw is Roti Babi, a delicious pork-filled bread, with a filling of minced pork, crabmeat, and onions stuffed into a decadent fried egg bread. Top it off with a generous dollop of Worcestershire sauce and you’re automatically transported to junk food heaven. Restoran Kin Kin serves a specialty dish of Pan Mee, which is an egg-noodle soup Hokkien style (served dry at Kin Kin) peppered with minced pork, blanched noodles, crispy dried anchovies (ikan bilis) and a delicious poached egg topping off this delicious dish.
