Malaysia's capital offers a dining experience as eclectic as its skyline, but everyone knows the tastiest side dish is a cheap bill.
From humble street stalls to value-for-money restaurants, here are the best places to fill up in Kuala Lumpur thatâll cost you less than a taxi ride across town.
If you set out to find the epitome of a neighbourhood eatery in Bangsar, the Sarawak laksa stall inside the Nam Chuan Coffee Shop food court is your best bet. The laksa (RM8) here is built for rainy days: a heap of chewy rice vermicelli arrives in a spicy, coconut milk-based soup that is crowned with shredded chicken, huge prawns, ribbons of sliced omelette and lashings of chopped coriander. Owner Christina Jong has been doling out bowls of comfort for more than 16 years â her version of Sarawak laksa doesnât get any more authentic than this.
