malaysia, truly asia.

i'm going to kuala lumpur in a week or so; i've read dozens of malaysian food blogs, but pretty much nothing else. any suggestions? i'll be there for five days.

I don't know specific places, but can highly recommend my favourite Malaysian breakfasts: Nasi Lemak (rice cooked in coconut milk, served with an assortment of side dishes) and Bak Kut Teh (a M'sian Chinese pork rib soup spiced with star anise and lots of pepper).

mmmmm. nasi lemak, i haven't had that in too long a time. i always confuse bak kut teh with a punjabi mc song....

There you go, off again! You certainly won't gather any moss;)
Looking forward to your pictures.

Woohoo..!! good for you santos..! want me to connect you to some foodie in malaysia..?? let me know ya.. :)

acornbud, you seem to out and about yourself these days :)

Wow- I'm so jealous! I've been researching Kuala Lumpur for the past 5 weeks for a tourism class I'm taking for school! Have a blast; there is so much to see and do there!!! I can't wait to see photos and hear about your trip!

ablykins, share some knowledge, woman! :) where should i visit?

S,

Have a great time! I wish I was going...especially since I have not been.

I can't wait to hear all about it.

Hi Santos! Mamabok sent me. Let me know where you'll be staying. Maybe my friends and I can take you around for some good food hunting depending on where you are and where you're going ;o)! You can reach me at emailwmw@gmail.com or through my blog http://ugwug.blogspot.com.

Hey Santos! Mama bok want us to say hi to you! I guess u have to try some of the famous local food such as chicken satay, bah kut teh, some nyonya delicacies and some local chinese cuisine! The Malaysian food is waiting for you!!

hiya Santos!

Glad to hear u're doing a visit to Msia. Would definitely love to meet the lady behind those yummy looking creations. We can all meet up, WMW and Jackson too. email at boo_liciouskl@yahoo.com

Hey.. Jackson, WMW and Boo..!! you are all so awesome..!!!

Santos:

There is a nice food court right across the street from the Empress Hotel in KL.

The best time to go there is during (early) lunch.

You will enjoy the taste, the smell and the colors.

Lastly, if you like tailored clothes, KL is the place to be.

Enjoy.

malaysia is mostly a combination of malay indian and chinese. roti (canai/prata), nasi
