What you can expect

Join me and explore the last surviving Malay village in Kuala Lumpur. Discover the most authentic and most delicious Malay dishes. All in the place where the true locals go to eat – sheer paradise for anyone who loves food. Visit the farmers’ market located at Chow Kit, meet the street vendors, and take in the vibes and atmosphere of this bustling marketplace. This is the oldest market in town, located in the heart of the city. You’ll not only get to try Malay delicacies but also local fruits such as the famous durian!

On this private tour, you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of our local farmers’ market. Lots of buzz and plenty to taste. Full of flavors and special foods. I'll guide you through the hustle and we'll try some of my favorites, like the local blue rice breakfast dish nasi kerabu, or more unconventional ones, like a calamari dessert specific to the East side of Malaysia where I am originally from.

I have studied culinary arts and food is my passion. I really enjoy helping travelers discover the authentic Malay cuisine. With so much diversity in our country, I want to help you explore some special, off-the-beaten-track places.

Malay food is delicious and rich in vegetables, meat, fish and seafood. I can adapt the tour for vegetarian or other dietary needs. Just let me know and I can shape the tour to your wishes!

With a culinary art background, I able to give explanation to people about the foods, ingredients, origin & touch of the history, they became confidence to try it and end up they enjoyed the foods.
From this part, I realized that most of travellers visit Malaysia, they only go for Chinese & Indian foods because they are familiar & comfortable with it. If ask them about Malay food, they have no idea what it is. So I decided to do the food tour for tourists to expose them about the Malay food and deliver them a unique experience when they join this tour."
