Kuala Lumpur Restaurants: 981 reviews and 1,641 photos


Malaysia is a country where you can get food 24/7. No worries about starvation when you come to kl. One of my favorites are these stalls called Mamak (mA-mAK) stalls. they can be found nearly everywhere. They serve indian-muslims food ranging from Naan curry to tandoori chicken. Oh, and dont miss out on our specialty: Teh Tarik! If you are not near any mamak stalls, try some hawker stalls. We have wonderful fishball noodles which make really good breakfast or late night supper.

Favorite Dish: mamak: Teh Tarik is a must. try a variety of naans. and chicken kurma. and tuna cutlets. and mutton curry. and fish head curry. and nasi briyani

chinese hawker stall: fishball noodle soup. wanton mee, some of them have little local `kuih` or local cakes for you too.
