Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: A Savory Taste

I can still clearly remember in my mind what my Malaysian client asked me before we ate at a Malaysian sidewalk restaurant, "Do you eat spicy food?". Seriously, I don't know what to answer and it took me some time responding to her question.

Well I chose to answer with all honesty and told her that, "I like eating spicy foods but unfortunately my body cannot tolerate it". Sadly, I sweat a lot and my head gets itchy. She just smiled back and advised me to take off my coat and eat comfortably. :)

Bah Kut Teh Malaysia

The famous sidewalk food in Malaysia is the "Bah Kut Teh". Every Malaysian knows this food and I am pretty sure they will recommend it to you as well if you want to visit their country. We ate along Subang Jaya area and there are a lot of restaurants serving Bah Kut Teh.

Bah Kut Teh is a "slightly" spicy tea soup that is composed of pork meat, pork bone and other internal organs. The soup was very delicious and tasty and the meat was very tender. To make the soup spicier, try adding more chopped chili and garlic, and I'm sure you'll roll up your sleeves in no time.

I also tried eating what I call as their "pig intestine soup" or locally known as "Too Thor Th'ng" and it was good as well. Honestly, it was not enticing to eat if you just look at the food, but have the courage to try it and I believe me you will like it. Sadly, I haven't got the chance to ask for the prices of the food but I think spending MYR 50 (~USD 17) is more than enough.

By the way, be prepared to have a bad breath and bad smell burp after eating Bah Kut Teh and intestine soup because your breath will surely be not worth someone's nostrils. I remembered after our dinner, we rode the taxi back to Kuala Lumpur (KL). I was so full that I need to burp and I myself couldn't handle the smell of my burp. :)

TRAVEL TIP: When visiting a country for the first time, make sure to put on your to-do-list the local restaurants because you will surely appreciate a country's food tastes when served the local way.

Malaysian Food satisfied

I'm sure there are still more delicious Malaysian foods that I haven't tasted yet. Tastier and definitely spicier. If I have the chance to visit Malaysia again, I'll challenge myself eating their other spicy cuisines...

Oops and perhaps I'll wear sando shirt and shorts next time!
