Favorite thing: As this is a general tip, I want to show you what is the general food you can expect when you are in Kuala Lumpur. We are rice eater, this is a plate of rice mixed with curry and fried fish, an Indian styled of eating. Chinese cooking definitely are abundant in the area of Chinatown, so let's eat. Malay foods can be found too, they are at the small alley beside the Nando Chickens.

The way we eat is completely different because we already trained to use spoon and fork for many years. Our fork is for left hand to support when our right hand needed it. Fork can be used to pick up dishes as well. Our right hand is the actual hand to eat with spoon to scoop up the rice and other dishes. Spoon is used when we want to drink soup. We don't have knife when we eat, only when we go to Western foods restaurant.

Eating with fingers is very common in Lumpur. Fingers eating only when you eat Indian and Malay foods in rice and dishes. If you are eating noodles soup, please don't use fingers.
