I was in Kuala Lumpur last month for four days. It was pretty mucha non-stop frenzy of eating, CD buying, eating, book buying, eating, more CD buying, and more eating. In case you haven’t figured it out, Kuala Lumpur is a foodie paradise. You can find a wide variety of restaurants and food stalls to send your taste buds into overdrive all around KL and in neighboring towns such as Petaling Jaya. I ate local Malay cuisine at Yut Kee in Dang Wangi, sizzling steaks at the Coliseum and The Ship, Burmese monhinga at Gantawin, and Indian snacks such as samosas on the street.
There is a cool-looking retro A&W drive-in restaurant across the street from the Amcorp Mall in Petaling Jaya that I was tempted to try, but I had too many bags of books after shopping at BookXcess, so I didn’t even stop for a root beer. I always intend to sample an even greater variety of food when I’m in the city, but I end up patronizing my favorite places each time and there is never enough time — or room in my stomach — to eat it all. Maybe next time.
