Check out Chinatown/ Petaling Street
Silje W. Pettersen says:
I like to go into Chinatown and just get something from one of the small restaurants there. I generally like Chinatowns...wherever they are. The buzzing life and atmosphere they have. I probably couldn't stay for long, but for a few days I'm just loving it.
Adam Galloway says:
I always head for Chinatown.
Karolina Holysz-Wrzesinska says:
Food courts in Chinatown.

Blue Boy Vegetarian restaurant! There's also a fantastic Indian across from Anjung Guesthouse, but KL is all about the street food.
Location: 6001 Blue Boy Mansion, Jalan Tong Shin (at Jalan Pudu Lama)
Street Food Stalls
Matej Hargas says:
The best food I had in KL (and Malaysia overall) was not in restaurants but food stalls in the streets.
Comieko Luna says:
Restaurants don't cut it. Food stalls run by locals taste really local. Anything cooked by foreigners, think twice.
Khalili Rosly says:
Gotta go the stalls... Hawkers, they sell the best food... plus, dirt cheap!
Sarafyda Sariman says:
There are so many food places to eat in KL... But I suggest you try out the hawkers street first to taste the real food before going to a franchise restaurant.
