For tourists who want to eat some real delicious Malay foods, I strongly recommend a place called Kampung Baharu, located nearby Chow Kit, exact location at Jalan Raja Muda Tiga, Kampung Baru. If you are in Kuala Lumpur, just take a taxi, it will only cost you RM5-6 to get here. This is a street full of Malay food stalls, parking is a headache and better to go at night after 6pm to avoid the heat of hot sun. The food here is mostly eating rice with sambal (chilli shrimp paste), chicken, fish, vegetables, etc. For tourists looking for Malay foods, this is the place, believe me.

Picture is many bowls of sambal paste in one of a restaurant in Kampung Baharu. Tourists if wanted to taste real Malay foods should scoop a few spoons of these sambal to eat together, if you don't know the proper way of eating, don't worry, you are actually eating with hundreds of Malays, just observe how peoples eat.
