Runaway Photo: What I’ve Eaten in My Neighborhood in KL, Malaysia


Cantonese kuey teow mee hoon – my favorite!


These are the food I found within three blocks from where I’m staying in Kuala Lumpur.


I’m at 30 Jalan Tun H.S. Lee to be exact, and it’s full of pleasant eateries.

One of the many reasons why I love staying in Malaysia is their food. I have already proven my appetite through several blog posts. I’ve been in Kuala Lumpur for last two weeks, mainly catching up my work. I didn’t do much ever since I got here, but that was exactly my intension. Most of my schedule is filled with working, writing, drinking tea, and eating. I tried to eat many different kinds at several restaurants. It’s amazing how many places to eat within three blocks. There are Indian, Chinese, Malay restaurants, and several lunch buffets. It made me lazy because I didn’t have to walk to far, but I admit it has been wonderful.

Thanks to Back Home to having me, and introducing me great eateries!

    These photos make my mouth waters. I guess you’ve eaten almost all the Malaysian food, there’s nothing I can bring you to eat that you haven’t eaten. hahaha.. :)

    Hah! I seen you’ve found our “secrets” in Malaysia; the food. I see some of my favorites on that list up there. You even found “kaya”, the best breakfast spread imo.

    Jambu is right, at least that’s what my Malaysian friends call it. Please see the first selection of this page:
