Nasi lemak was named the city’s must-eat meal

According to a study by TimeOut, Kuala Lumpur has secured the 7th spot as the best city for food, with nasi lemak named the top must-try cuisine in Malaysia, followed by Thai tom yam soup and roti canai.

Grace Beard, a travel editor based in London for TimeOut, described Kuala Lumpur as,

“a large, delightful melting pot, where the food scene draws from Malay, Chinese, and Indian cultures, reflecting centuries of migration.”
