Sabaheats food hunting at Kuala Lumpur (klang valley)


Kuala Lumpur often known as KL is the largest city in Malaysia. KL offers  a vast selection of delicious and exotic food that suit every palate. The problem is KL is not exactly easy to get around as public transportation is not readily available. Thanks to Uber, it is possible to get around KL and Klang Valley without dealing with the infamous Taxi driver.

For my travel to KL, Traders Hotel KL is the first choice in my list as it is located centrally at KL city with most of the rooms come with KLCC view. You can take the LRT below KLCC to the other part of the city.

For Asian Food lover

Mak’s Chee

Location: LG 311B, 1 Utama Shopping Centre
Business hours: 11am – 10pm daily

Mak Woon Chee is Guangzhou’s King of Wonton Noodle and his 100 years old authentic prawn wonton noodle recipe is world famous and a favorite among many famous personalities and celebrities. They open their first branch in Malaysia at 1 Utama shopping Mall and now you can taste their famous thin wonton noodle without travel to Hong Kong. I never tried Mak’s Chee in Hong Kong so I can’t make a comparison but Mak’s Chee noodle is thinner than the one in Malaysia, made by using duck egg and quality flour.
