My Favourite Restaurants In Kuala Lumpur
One thing I love about travelling is finding awesome restaurants to visit and then shouting about them on my blog. In Kuala Lumpur you are spoilt for choice when it comes to cafes, bars and restaurants as there are hundreds to choose from. I, unfortunately, didn't have time to try them all but the ones I did experience, were all kinds of amazing. So here it is, the places you have to try when visiting KL.
A Pho restaurant wasn't somewhere I thought I would love but in actual fact, it ended up being one of my favourite food spots in KL. The cool kitchen- esque decor and neon signs made it an Instagrammer's heaven and the food is to die for. I opted for fresh rice paper rolls wrapped with prawns and veggies and the special beef combination Pho bowl. To drink I had the Pandan lemongrass which was a perfect accompaniment.
Merchant's Lane Cafe
This hidden cafe proved difficult to find at first, however I think it may have had something to do with my lack of sleep the night before. When I found it I realised it probably shouldn't have taken me as long as it did. This quirky cafe is tucked away on the outskirts of China Town behind a turquoise door. After climbing a set of stairs you will find the busy cafe that seems to appeal to all walks of life from backpackers to locals. My dish of choice was the Hongkie Beef Stew with the Superfruit Lemon Tea (which happens to be the yummiest drink I have ever had). Looking back I wish I had tried more from the menu, it all looked delicious and I had major food envy of the lady on the table next to me.
Also in China Town and only four doors down from Merchant's Lane Cafe was this casual take on innovative fine dining. Sitting in the open courtyard you could quite easily spend an entire day making your way through their delicious menu. I opted for dessert and enjoyed the Ulam Raja Creme Brulee. What did this entail you ask? Dehydrated Ulam Raja, Thai basil and honeycomb and oh my, was it delicious. I also had the natural cultured soda pineapple juice which was tastily tart but equally as scrumptious.
Dolly Dim Sum
The only chain restaurant I will mention is Dolly Dim Sum as I tend to prefer the independent eateries, however, this cute restaurant really surprised me with how good it was. Affordable, yummy dim sum with quick service and friendly staff (in the one I went to anyway). Definitely worth a visit, if only for a quick snack.
I think I will have to go back to Kuala Lumpur purely to complete the ever-growing list of restaurants that I want to try there.
