We had the most amazing food tour EVER! Our guide was TK and he’s so knowledgeable about the food and culture of Malaysia. He’s a true local foodie so we got to try both the famous places and the hidden gems of KL’s Chinatown. We love hearing about the history of some buildings and the stories of the street food vendors. All the food we tried was AMAZING and we can’t recommend this tour enough.

An amazing experience. TK was a brilliant guide - he was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny. You can tell he is an experienced guide becasue near enough all of the food vendors knew him and we even skiped the queue a couple of times because of his connections. My sister was filming for a project and TK was so open to being on camera and giving an interview which we highly appreciate. Highly highly recommend this tour - you won't regret it. The food was delicious too - TK knows what he's talking about.

I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in experience the Malay food scene! Our guide Joel was amazing — he shared a lot of his knowledge on the country history and culture while introducing us to some delicious dishes on the way. I always take food tours when I travelled, and I can tell this one was the perfect combination of food (quality, variety and amount), history and laughs!
