Jalan Jalan Cari Makan in Kuala Lumpur

When I left Kuching, I had a stopover in Kuala Lumpur (KL) for a night. I was staying with a friend, and my cousin was kind enough to pick me up from the airport and take me shopping and later on we had dinner with 2 of my friends at Chilis @ 1 Utama Shopping Mall. I figured I have had too much Asian food the past 12 days in Kuching.. and I felt the need to ease back into Aussie life. Nah, just kidding. I JUST WANTED SOME BEEF RIBS!!! Pretty random, I know.. but Chilis ended up being the perfect place to catch up and have some pretty awesome Western food…

(These photos were taken by my cousin, Michelle Wong – my guest photographer for this blog entry. Thanks cuz!! These photos look AMAZING!!)

It didn’t take me too long to decide what I wanted out of the menu…

I knew I definitely wanted a MARGARITA!! Funny thing was, the margarita came in a tall beer glass, not a cocktail glass. Sweettt… more value for money? Lol.

And of course, I ordered RIBS. Tender, juicy, BBQ Beef Ribs…

My friend Narjit had the Grilled Fish.. and she loved it!

My other friend Elise had sort of a tasting plate thingy with 3 different dips for chicken wings, some kind of fritter (I’m guessing fish) & a bready thing almost like a bruschetta but not quite.. LOL I am failing this review!! I should’ve looked closely at the menu & found out the exact name… but I was too busy having fun 🙂

Look at the tenderness of the ribs… it was soooo yummy, and the portions were fairly large so it was quite a struggle to finish!!! Took our time and finished it anyway 🙂

The next day, once again my cousin picked me up and on our way to the airport, we stopped by Woo Pin Fish Head Noodles to have the famous.. well, obviously… Fish Head Noodles!!

The noodles are available in two different “flavors”.. one is a milkier version where Ideal milk is added to the broth.. looked yummy, but I didn’t feel like having anything milky that morning…

So instead I had the other version which was very tasty! There wasn’t physically any “fish heads” in the broth unfortunately.. I think it’s just random… but basically the fish has been deep fried and then added to the soup served with vermicelli noodles… sumptuous!! No wonder it’s so famous in KL.

So my trip to KL was very short, it was in fact just under 24 hours.. so barely even a day! But I definitely made the most out of my short time there. Back in Melbourne now! So good to be home, can’t wait to start cooking and blogging recipes again!! Until then, wherever you are, have fun! Eat good food! 🙂
