Once you arrive in KL you won’t have to worry about being hungry.
So this is the good news: you got yourself in a food heaven!
The variety and diversity of food is so overwhelming that every day you will struggle to decide what to eat.
The multicultural spirit of Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia in general, brought to the country the greatest culinary variety. This means that you can eat food from three different traditions: Chinese, Indian and Malaysian. And even more.
Food courts are the best places to grab your meals: they are very popular in Malaysia and provide a range of different food. Local people are used to eat there, which means that the food is actually very good and very affordable.
You can find food courts either on the street or inside the hundreds of shopping centers.
The food court at the last floor of KL Sentral, for example, is definitely one of the best in the downtown area. You can find many different types of noodles, hot and dry pots, sushi, western cousine and so on.
