My Bukit Bintang - Kuala Lumpur Food Tour Part. 1


I had been posting my food tour on Instagram and I thought it will be nice if I do the same for my website too. I wish my tummy can hold more food than what is shown here tho, cos there're still so much more food to be discovered and explored. Here're all the food that I had eaten during my 4 days in Kuala Lumpur.

Phở Gà @ Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang

First and foremost, I would like to thank all you lovely people for the kind wishes. I indeed had a wonderful time. Probably, a much needed break from my day time job, creating recipes, cooking, baking and social media. TBH, I was burnt out. Now I am refreshed and ready to hustle all over again. I decided to retreat somewhere alone, not too distant from food and society. Bukit Bintang, KL, seems like a good place to start.

Phở Gà @ Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang

I was always craving for some Vietnamese food (especially when my feed is always filled with Phở and Bánh Mì) and sadly, Singapore doesn't has any good Vietnamese eateries. So, without much hesitation, I ordered a bowl of Phở Gà as soon as I set out my food adventure. It was top notch! Need I say more?

Phở Gà @ Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang - The only workout is noodles lifting.

Yong Tau Foo / Niang Tou Fu

@ Ah Koong, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur After some Pho, I am still craving for some noodles. Other than pizza and bread dough, noodles is probably my next favorite dough (just a notch higher than pasta). This bowl of yong tau foo is so satisfying and comforting. It had been such a long time since I had an awesome bowl of yong tau foo. Can really taste the aroma of yellow beans, anchovies and fermented daikon, unlike those typical mediocre ones which are loaded with MSG. I had ordered mine with lo see fun (rice pin noodles). And you should've guess, it was phenomenal!

During the ancient wartime in China, people are running in all directions from the gruesome wars. Hakka people found a way to preserve meat inside bean curds and vegetables. The concept had travelled with them throughout South East Asia which had evolved into what Yong Tau Foo is known today.

Wanton Mee @ Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang

Did I ever get tired of noodles? Nope. Besides bread and pizza, I practically live on noodles. Is this the best wanton mee I had ever tasted? Hell yeah! I seriously thought I had tasted the best in Singapore, but this? This is on a whole different level of yummiliciousness! The char siu were thinly sliced and it literally just melted in my mouth. The wantons are silky smooth with a mixture of meat and fish as fillings. The noodles... Just perfect. I devoured the plate within a couple of mins! And yes! I had a second plate to ensure I wasn't dreaming.

Bánh Mì @ Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang

I knew that after having an awesome bowl of Phở Gà, I have to come back for their Bánh Mì. Just as I expected, it is probably the best I had tasted outside of Vietnam. Probably. I heard from the owners that they flew in all of the ingredients weekly straight from Vietnam to ensure top authentic quality. It looks simple, yet sophisticated. Crispy bread met with a very well balanced fillings. And you know that one isn't enuff for me. I had to order another with a simple filling.

Sliced Fish Beehoon Soup @ Pudu Plaza

What better way to comfort myself and keep myself cozy in this cold weather than this awesome bowl of sliced fish beehoon soup? Same as Singapore, it was pouring in KL, Malaysia. I love how the artisan brew the soup with fish bones and some other spices (can literally taste). There isn't any traces of MSG, unlike the mediocre ones in Singapore. The fish slices was so fresh that it just disappeared smoothly inside my mouth. Perfection. In case you are wondering, beehoon is vermicelli. I didn't do any lifting as I totally forgotten about it, cos you know, I stuck my face into the bowl right after the very 1st bite.

Kopi @ Pudu Plaza

Don't need any fancy latte art. Just a simple cup of coffee will make my day. This coffee is brewed in those socks then pulled with condensed milk. Pulled literally translate from the Malay word "tarik". It's kinda hard for me to explain the motion, you can search thru YouTube. Pretty amazing to be honest. This cuppa tastes like Cafe Au Lait without the foamed milk.

Kuih Bakul / Fried Gold Cake (Fried Nian Gao)

@ Pudu Plaza I happened to find this eatery which sells fried Nian Gao. Initially, I didn't know that they are selling this yummilicious thingy. I was intrigued by the "Fried Gold Cake" wording. As I approached the eatery, I then found out that they are very famous and even won some awards. I knew I have to try one (or a few). TBH, this is the 1st time I had seen Chinese New Year cake (Nian Gao) being deep fried with sweet potatoes and yam. The result is that Nian Gao oozing out, like a lava, as soon as I took the 1st bite. Heavenly! Maybe I should make these during CNY next year.

Crispy Popiah @ Pudu Plaza

Another famous eatery which I had heard about is the crispy popiah. Yes! It definitely lives up to it's name. Is this the best popiah I had eaten? I can honestly say that it is just a little lower than my favorite popiah eatery in Singapore. The fillings is the usual turnip peanut vegetables mixture. What really intrigues me is the crispy bits of crunchiness. I am still figuring out what it is made of.

Winson Berger @ Pudu Plaza

This mark the end of my KL food adventure. Will I be back? Definitely. There're still a lot of food to explore and my tummy can only hold this much food. I had gained a lot from this trip; being able to rewind myself and being inspired by the different types of food. Guess I will take a food adventure trip every 3 months.

Winson Berger @ Pudu Plaza

Anyway, I found this on the side of the road near Pudu Plaza after I had my last bfast. I just couldn't resist getting myself a burger even after my tummy was full. I mean, look at that, the burger bun was being grilled in front of me. Don't think anyone can resist. Having no idea what the fillings was, I just went ahead and grab myself a burger. As I revealed the fillings, I was literally drooling! 2 bah kwa (Chinese BBQ jerky), a heaping serving of meat floss with a special smoky spicy sauce. This tasted just like Chinese New Year, only better! I initially thought it was a simple Roti John, but I was so wrong. The old artisan was too shy to take a photo, so I went ahead and take shots of his mobile eatery. If ever, you are in that area, keep a lookout for this awesome burger. Now the question is, did I grab myself another? I grabbed 2 more for the road.

Hope you will enjoy the food experience as much I do. I will probably start a brand new food touring section on this website. Stay tuned.
