A Girl’s Gotta Eat: All The Things I Ate in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A Girl’s Gotta Eat: All The Things I Ate in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Pairs Well With…Malaysia + Sipping + Sampling + Pushing Food Boundaries

Riddle me this: how do you go to another country and not eat everything?  If anyone has the answer, please let me know.  Eating, like life, is a balancing act.  The way I figured, all the walking and workouts would balance out the u-turns in my highly regimented eating.  Previously regimented eating, that is.  What can I say?  A girl’s gotta eat.

I went through a phase of two bites of this and a handful of that as I worked Jalan Alor like RuPaul worked the runway in the 90’s. And I worked it.  Now, you may be thinking to yourself based on my Instagram, “Holy shit, this girl ate a million things in Asia!!!”  Yeah, well, roughly 35 days of being in Malaysia, and we’ll call it two meals and some snacks a day, equals don’t you dare judge me! Because if you are, a couple things are probably happening here:

  1. You’re having “Food FOMO” and are jealous that what I’m eating is better than what you’ve got in your pantry.
  2. You’re hangry right now and are about to drool over the best part of this article – the pictures.  I’ll get there…hold your horses.
  3. You’re just jealous that you’re not here. (And completely understandable.)

 

Malaysia is a bit of a food bonanza if you ask me.  The flavors and meals of the country are heavily influenced by Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures.  I stepped out of my comfort zone and braved the runny eggs, mystery meats, meat floss (yes, I did try it) – and even some seafood.  I truly enjoyed everything I sampled…almost.  Minus the bull penis soup that is.  #yesyouheardmeright  #neveragain

You should have seen the video…

 

Okay, so why am I, Ms. Carin Across the Globe, telling you what I’m eating?  Simple.  Because I want you guys to partake in this journey with me, even if we’re on different ends of the globe. I was perusing aisles in stores aimlessly and taking notice of all the foreign items on the shelves, picking a few up to try along the way.  I’d find myself saying, “Ooooh, my sister would like this” or “If I were at home, I’d totally make and bring this to my next Culture Club get together.

Well, one thing led to another and I put together the A Girl’s Gotta Eat Guide to Malaysia as an idea starter for your next at-home dinner party, out of your comfort zone cooking attempt, or girl’s night in. It includes a few of the best must-try local recipes featured below and the most curious, fun or just plain tasty local products. (To be completely honest, half the time, I couldn’t read the package, so I superficially picked the products based on looks alone, but only recommended the yummy ones that had an interesting twist.)

Invite some friends over, have everyone pick and order an item of interest from the list and sample the night away!  (Add alcohol for an extra adventurous time.) The list, which I hope you find to be helpful, includes both adventurous products as well as select ingredients for the recommended recipes.

So, without further ado, all my month one favorites…

HOCK CHEW MEE SUAH: considered a traditional Chinese comfort and birthday food.  These salted wheat noodles are either boiled or pan-fried and dressed in sauce, sometimes with other ingredients. (The balls have yet to be identified, but I am pretty sure they are some sort of imposter sausage.)


APAM BALIK: a peanutty griddle stuffed pancake generally sold as a sweet street food in Asia.  If you’re feeling really frisky, up your game and get yours with a dose of coconut.

The master himself

Apam Balik Minis

 

ROTI CANAI & SPINACH PANEER MASALA: How I’ve not heard of pizza dough’s dramatic twin escapes me! This Indian flatbread, maybe more amazing than naan (if that’s even possible), is really just a vehicle for sauce, veggies and wiping your plate clean with an edible foodie napkin.  It pairs well with pretty much everything, but especially my favorite, spinach paneer masala.

 

ROTI BANJIR TELUR GOYANG: (also known in Malaysia as “Hanging Balls.” I just can’t make this stuff up): A local, hybrid mashup of two breakfast dishes: 1) Roti Canai (Indian flatbread) served “Banjir” style (meaning “flooded” with other stuff) and 2) Telur Separuh, two half boiled eggs.

Roti Banjir Telur…also known as submerged bread and hanging balls. #truth

 

BANANA LEAF MEALS: Look Ma, no hands!  Okay, just kidding.  Hands, yes.  Silverware, no.  The banana leaves serve as plates in an effort to reduce waste from disposable plates.  You begin with a base meal of banana leaf rice and vegetables, topped with sauces and proteins to your liking.  The best part of this meal?  Utensil free.  Monkey see, monkey do, follow suit and eat like the locals do.

Exhibit #1: The Meal

Exhibit #2: Confusion sets in on how to do this gracefully

Exhibit #3: The face shoveling begins. Toddlers, watch out.

Exhibit #4: Sh*t is all over the place. Note to self: must bring bib next time.

Exhibit #5: Feeding frenzy success.

 

MEAT FLOSS: Okay, bear with me for a moment while I try to describe this one to you as it’s almost one of those “you had to be there for it” type foods.  Looks like: carpet.  Taste consistency: cotton candy.  Feels: fuzzy. Flavor profile: sweet on the tongue and savory after taste.  Overall: it was odd. Not bad, just odd.

 

NAAN: A rising oven baked, flatbread which originated in Central and Southeast Asia.  Thicker than Roti, it is another dining accompaniment to curries or anything sauce based.  This meal will make em’ say, “Mmmm…..naan, naan, naan, naan.”  Yep, I went there.

You can’t get Master P out of your head now, can you?!

 

MAGGI GORENG: A popular instant noodle Malaysian dish.  Stir fried with veggies, egg, and sometimes protein, this dish is a lo mein meets fried rice dream.

Yeah, no comment on this one after Master P pun.

 

CHEE CHEONG FUN & CHAR KWAY:  First of off, we all know how unamusing Monday’s are to begin with.  Second, this was my Monday morning Malaysian breakfast the third week of our trip.  I was presented with a completely foreign, maybe not so appetizing meal at first sight.  But, I braved it and tried it anyway.  Turns out it was quite good.  Chee Cheong Fun is a rice noodle cooked to perfection and dressed with a sweet sauce.  The meal is complimented by a stick of Char Kway, a Chinese donut, or even a naked churro.

Traditional Cantonese breakfast

 

CURRY:  The new love of my life these days, my main squeeze.  Curry, an Indian dish, uses interesting combinations of flavors and spices, with some having higher levels of heat than others.

Hands down the best curry I’ve had in my life!

 

Have all the feels for all the meals?  I hope so!

20 Must-Have Experiences in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

20 Must-Have Experiences in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Pairs Well With…Traveling + Adventure + Discovery

When moving to a new city, it’s easy to start exploring, beginning with the sights you should see.  Petronas Towers, check!  Batu Caves, check!  It was in Kuala Lumpur, the city of skyscrapers and lookout points and the first one-month stop within my Remote Year journey, where I pledged to be more than just a common tourist and immerse myself in unique experiences.

But what happens when you think you’ve seen it all?  

You put on your Dora the Explorer gear and get to gettin’, finding those local city gems others wish they had found.  Combined with some of the best tourist attractions, here are the most outstanding local finds and things to do in the fine city of Kuala Lumpur:

  1. Enjoy a drink on a helipad at Heli Lounge Bar.  A helipad for landing by day, and a rooftop patio by night, Heli Lounge Bar offers spectacular views of the KL sunset.  Grab a glass and sip into the sunset.

2. Dine banana leaf style.  The banana leaves serve as plates in an effort to reduce waste.  Instagram-worthy in and of itself, you begin with a base meal of banana leaf rice and vegetables topped with sauces and proteins to your liking.  The best part of this meal?  No silverware required. You eat with your hands.  Monkey see, monkey do, follow suit and eat like the locals do.  Check out a few of my favorites around town: Raj’s Banana Leaf, Restoran Sri Nirwana Maju Bangsar, and Vishalatchi Food Catering.

3. Hike Broga Hill.  An easy 45-minute drive into nature outside of KL’s city limits – and every minute worth it.  Set your alarm early as you won’t want to miss the beauty of the morning sunrise. If you are going for sunrise, prepare for the hour long, beginner-intermediate hike by bringing water, bug spray and a flashlight or headlamp.

4. Feast in the “Food Dungeon.”  Buried below the bustling streets, this multi-heritage, 30 vendor deep food fest offers something for everyone.  With highly affordable, authentic meals, you can taste your way across the globe.

5. Savor a symphony.  Lyrics lover or not, the shows at the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra are music to the ears.  The orchestra hall is a showstopper and a sight to be seen.

6. Feel the beat.  As a dancer for many years, I am always in pursuit of new dance studios, styles and classes.  Geetha Shankaran Dance, offering a variety of classes, from Indian to Hip Hop Fusion, provides instruction to both youth and adult audiences.  Yoga classes are offered as well.

7. Peak from the Petronas Towers.  Visiting Kuala Lumpur and not seeing the dynamic 88-floor skyscrapers wouldn’t be right.  Almost the tallest in the world at just under 452 meters high, these two towers symbolize Malaysia as an up and coming global presence.  The former Prime Minister’s vision for these towers was to reflect “courage, ingenuity, initiative, determination, energy, confidence, optimism, advancement and zest.”

8. Love your latte.  There are many cute and quaint coffee shops in the city that offer a nice, quiet break in the day.  Whether catching up on emails or cranking through a page turner, these coffee shops offer up some of the best lattes, sweet and savory meals, and enchanting atmospheres.  Best latte in town?  Check out Coffee Amo for hand-crafted delights.

9. Affinities for Infinities.  Kuala Lumpur houses some of the best infinity pools you could ever imagine, with Capri by Fraser being a front-runner favorite.  Make sure to switch up your scenery, get your shine on, and soak up your daily dose of Vitamin D – all with a breathtaking view while in the blue.

10. Be awestruck at Batu Caves.  This Hindu temple houses the iconic Murugan statue, perfectly positioned for a photo opp prior to entering the caves.  You’ll walk up 272 stairs to get to the top, but the walk through the caves and to the picturesque opening is worth every step.  (Beware of the thieving monkeys!  No, seriously.)

11. Eat street meat.  Yes, I understand this may sound odd, but it’s everywhere. Quick to get, convenient to eat, and pretty to look at, your street meat varietals easily serve as dinner de jour. Keep your eyes out for these street meat vendors (really known as Lok Lok) who serve not only meat, but also many other skewer assortments.

12. Kick it at the KL Tower.  Another KL must-see landmark, both day and night.  During the day, you can head to the top of the tower and scope out the scene from above.  At night, the tower sometimes offers a musically synced, can’t-miss light show.

13. Find unfamiliar foods. One of the most exciting things about visiting a new place is trying new foods.  Kuala Lumpur offers a large dose of Indian, Chinese and Malaysian foods, among other styles of dining.  Wander along Jalan Alor, also known as “Food Street” and indulge in items such as fish balls, drunken noodles, Lok Lok….and meat floss.  (Mark my words, I will see to it that I have a full understanding of what meat floss is before leaving the country.)

14. Trek through the tiniest rainforest. The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, living in the heart of KL, is a piece of peace in the middle of the city.  Take a nice stroll through the scenic forest and embrace the lush greenery among the concrete jungle.

15. Temples & Thaipusam.  If you’re lucky enough to be in KL during the once a year Thaipusam event, you must attend.  Thousands of spectators line the streets in an effort to observe the sparkling chariot making its way to the Batu Caves.  Not in town for Thaipusam?  No problem!  KL has many temples to visit and meditate in.  Practice mind over matter in these beautiful buildings.

16. Fancy a foot massage.  Those long days of walking will get to those tootsies.  With most of the foot reflexology shops being open until the wee hours of the morning, it’s easy to take a load off, day or night.  Make sure to swing by D’Care where a 60-minute foot rub is $12 USD.  It doesn’t get much better than this.

17. See street art.  Mural, mural on the wall, which one is the best of them all?  The right answer?  All of them.  Lining the streets of KL lie many story-filled visual masterpieces designed by local artists.  Some of the best pieces are lurking in the most unexpected places. Looks are free.

18.  Nosh at Nagasari Curry House.  Food shame me if you must for my weekly repeat visits, but let’s not fix what’s not broken. Right?  Plus, there’s something to be said when your favorite neighborhood restaurant nails it – every time.

19. Bob your head at No Black Tie.  Love live music?  Well then, this joint is the place to be.  With a jazz vibe and good wine, it’s the recipe for a perfect Saturday night.

20. Dine differently.  Whether Dining in the Dark or in the sky at 164 feet in the air, you’ll enjoy the luxuries of 3+ course meals with a unique, sensory experience.

Departing March 4th, 2017 for Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam & March 6th for Hanoi & Halong Bay!

A Pit Stop For A Piece Of Humble Pie

A Pit Stop For A Piece Of Humble Pie

Pairs Well With…”Another Day in Paradise” by Phil Collins 

“There is no us.  There is no them.  There is just a we.”  – J. Lee

What would you do if you lost everything?  Could you handle it?  Would it break you? Maybe you didn’t have a lot to begin with, but tomorrow you wake up and find yourself homeless, living on the streets with nothing more than shreds of dignity – if you’re even that lucky.

Life has an interesting way of unfolding.  Everything can turn on just one twist of unforeseen fate, and change the trajectory of life.  For whatever reason, some of us dig out, others of us can’t.  And more often than not, we look at someone living on the street with pitiful glances, if we even acknowledge their presence at all, without regard to how they fell into their circumstance.  As if they chose to be there.  Maybe yes, maybe no, but what remains constant is that they are still there and, like us, they are human too.

February 2015, my first trip to Rio, was my first real glimpse into such an eye-opening and deep level of poverty.  It both rocked and unnerved me.  I hadn’t seen anything like it, and maybe that’s because for so long, I tried not to.  Entire families camped out looking for food, or any other handout to help them get by.  I would offer up my leftovers in an attempt to keep hearts beating and stomachs full for at least one more night.

I reflected on Rio as I headed into my first volunteer shift at Kuala Lumpur‘s Pit Stop Cafe, a community cafe working to find solutions to urban hunger and poverty by marshaling volunteers and repurposing food.  They are truly a one of a kind model.  (America, take note.)

The owner, Joyce, shares a story similar to mine: Woman gets fed up with Corporate America. Woman quits her job. Woman works to find something more meaningful and fulfilling.  Through her change of course, Joyce founded Pit Stop Cafe, which costs $6-8k monthly to operate and offers warm meals daily to 200-260 urban working poor or homeless people.

Earlier in the week, in a presentation to my Remote Year group, Joyce shared learnings around her community work, what it means to be in need and how the less fortunate are viewed.  What she shared was interesting, and in some cases, jaw-dropping:

THE CITY OF KUALA LUMPUR CHOOSES NOT TO ACKNOWLEDGE (or report) ANY HOMELESS POPULATION. Turning a blind eye much?  When you don’t report issues, you don’t have to acknowledge them.  And because you don’t acknowledge them, they aren’t “real” – and the government doesn’t have to spend dollars on “non-existent” economic issues. Typical case of ignorance is bliss.

(I was curious to learn more about this issue and stumbled upon an interesting article which accuses the city of rounding up homeless people and dumping them (yes, dumping them) outside city limits. W.O.W.  I’m not sure what is worse, throwing money at a problem or throwing people away.)

MAKE SURE YOUR IMPACT IS, IN FACT, IMPACTFUL.  While we have the best of intentions, we don’t always know what someone needs – unless we ask.  When was the last time you asked someone on the street what they needed, or better yet, what they wanted?  Most people approach the homeless as a one-size fits all, “you’ll take what you’re given” type mentality.  How helpful is having a size ten pair of shoes for a size seven foot?  Or a goose down jacket in Kuala Lumpur when it’s above 80 degrees the majority of the year. At Pit Stop Cafe, diners are asked what meal they want from the options available. By asking someone what they want, you allow them to feel as though they are in control and have a choice.  It’s how we build people up again.

THOSE IN NEED ARE OFTEN LOOKING FOR A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT.   The majority of our lives are spent trying to be better and do better.  To do so doesn’t always come easy, and it isn’t always a solo effort.  Many people don’t enjoy asking for help when they need it, especially when it’s someone they don’t know, but when you’re playing the survival game, it can become necessary.  Help where you can, and allow someone else to rise up.

DON’T ALLOW ANYONE TO BECOME INVISIBLE.  By acknowledging a person’s presence, you make them visible.  Everyone wants to be seen.  Just because someone is down on their luck doesn’t mean they should be counted out.  Each person has a story.  Take the time to hear it.

HOMELESSNESS IS NOT A PITY PARTY.  But it is about respect and treating a human being as a fellow human being.

Before my volunteer shift, Joyce was gracious enough to spend some time talking to me one-on-one about her career moves, new business, and worldly opinions.  I loved hearing about the vision and foundation on which Pit Stop Cafe was founded:

“When you look, or when you think about something called a pit stop,…a pit stop is a place for you to refuel. To refill yourself.  To change your tires.  And we wanted something like that but in the human context for people to uplift or upgrade themselves.  You couple that with our tagline, “Love all. Feed all”…Love is not just that between a husband and wife or whatever. It’s an encompassing thing. Compassion is part of the love thing as well.  So when you show compassion, you show love.  And that’s what we wanted.

But feed all…people think you just feed the stomach.  You do not just feed the stomach.  You feed your heart.  You feed your soul.  You feed your mind. You can fill your stomach all you want and, in some ways, I think that is what is wrong with the world sometimes.  All you are thinking about is feeding your wallet, feeding your stomach….Where’s your heart?  Where’s your soul?  How do you feed your heart?  How do you feed your soul?

How do you make yourself happy?”

I kept thinking about Joyce’s words throughout my shift and felt internally conflicted about the impact I thought I was making.  By the end of the shift, I decided to try a new approach: joining one of the gentlemen that I served just a bit earlier.  I asked if he minded that I join him.  After exchanging names and proper greetings, we dove into a more personalized conversation: our backgrounds, how we each got to be at Pit Stop Cafe that day, and past and present professions.  We shared a common bond over the love of reading and discussed our favorite books.  I couldn’t tell you the exact reason I approached the man, other than he had a kind smile and great spirit.  I suppose I wanted him to know that he is important and worth talking to, not that he needed my validation by any means.  Maybe I felt at that moment that he needed to be seen.

Upon leaving Pit Stop, I felt an intense wave of emotion and quickly stepped outside.  I don’t know that it was this particular volunteer shift that triggered me so much as it was realizing how engulfed I am my goals and needs to see anyone else’s.  I took my moment and let the tears slowly stream down my face, while I took a few deep breaths.  How selfish of me to be crying when these people have more challenging circumstances than I do. I circled around the idea that if we’re all operating independently, no changes will be implemented and no impact will be made to better the world.

Why do we let things get so bad in the first place?

As you ponder, I leave you with this: next time it’s too cold in the house or the food isn’t cooked to your perfection, or there’s not enough hot water for a shower, remember the person out on the streets.  Check your privilege, and remember, there is someone out there who is asking for nothing more from you than to be noticed.

How Do You Like Your Eggs? (Kuala Lumpur’s Five Best Breakfasts)

How Do You Like Your Eggs? (Kuala Lumpur’s Five Best Breakfasts)

Pairs Well With…Breakfast, the most important, sunny side up meal of the day.

You know the story: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Morning fuel is critical, and that first “this hits the spot” meal is everything.  I’ve spent the month of February scouting out the best, most novel breakfasts in Kuala Lumpur.  Not only did I succeed in finding what I was looking for, but I also won – big time.

Trying to find a traditional, semi-familiar delicious breakfast can sometimes be a challenge as a foreigner.  Lucky for you, I did all the dirty work. All walkable from Kuala Lumpur’s City Center, these five breakfast hot-spots will have you coming back for seconds:

VCR: 2, Jalan Galloway Kuala Lumpur 50150

With one of the best menus in town, VCR is a go-to destination for Sunday brunchin’.  Their menu offers everything from eggs-as-you’d-like, to a variety of toasts – and everything in between.  VCR’s rustic downstairs atmosphere and scenic upstairs views allow you to enjoy your brunch as you wish.

Best location for: The Sunday Bruncher

What to get: French Toast (oh, but it’s so much more)

VCR French Toast

 

The menu describes it as: Espresso no churn ice cream, fluffy brioche french toast, raspberry compote, crumbles and mocha sauce.

What the menu should’ve said: “This tower of delight will put your future breakfasts to shame, so you mine as well never bother ordering French Toast ever again. The chocolate raspberry goodness, soaked into the airy cinnamon bread, topped with a softening dollop of cold ice cream, will make you unsure of whether you’re eating breakfast or dessert.”

Other VCR notables:

VCR Squash Toast

VCR Breakie

 

Ola Bowls: C5.06.00, Pavilion Shopping Mall, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Yes, from the outside, this may look like nothing more than a smoothie shack with a toppings menu as long as your to-do list.  Look beyond appearances and into the heart of the menu where you will find options that sing to your stomach – and a plethora of colorful smoothie bowls!

Best location for: The Health Enthusiast

What to get: King of Greens

Ola Bowls – King of Greens

 

The menu describes it as: Farm power with avocado and banana blend topped with goji berries, crushed almonds, cranberries bananas and coconut flakes.

What the menu should’ve said: “Nourishment by the spoonful, and made with love.  This horizontal smoothie will beam you up for the day like you wouldn’t believe.”

LOKL Coffee Co.: 30 Jalan Tun H S Lee Kuala Lumpur 50100

This is as local as it gets, and a regular hangout for many. With a space as vibrant and fresh as their food, LOKL offers a plethora of intriguing breakfast options, so there’s something for everyone. With everything on the menu sounding heavenly, make sure to plan for a second visit while you’re in KL.

Best location for: The Indecisive Eater

What to get: The Frittata

LOKL Fritatta

 

The menu describes it as: Spanish omelet, smoked chicken sausage, leeks, potatoes, and onions.  Served with a side of grilled vegetables.

What the menu should’ve said: “This hearty egg delight is a symphony to your taste buds – an overall breakfast crescendo! The bold flavors of the frittata chased by mellow savoriness of the vegetable side will help you hit those high notes for days.”

Other LOKL notables:

LOKL Scrambled Egg & Cheese Burger

LOKL Mozzarella & Eggplant Casserole

 

Coffee Amo: 1st Floor, 54, Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur 50000

Unsure of where to start, I’ll give you the first three words that come to mind: Bear. Rum. Latte.  With on-point, hand-crafted coffee couture, you can’t go wrong.  Coffee Amo has one of the best lattes I’ve had – in my life.  While their menu is small, their coffee is kickin’.  I’m thinking about stickin’.   If you’re lucky enough to find this gem, tucked away in the middle of Chinatown, you must stop by for your daily caffeine drip.

Best location for: The “I Can Take it or Leave it” breakfast crowd, but gotta have my coffee 

What to get: Bear. Rum. Latte.

Coffee Amo Bear Rum Latte

 

The menu describes it as: (spoiler alert) A latte.  You pick the flavor, and the barista works on a design.  Should you try to order a “Bear Rum Latte,” your barista may give you a funny look.

What the menu should’ve said:
Option #1 – (Mic drop. No words necessary)
Option #2 – “Your latte is not only going to be the shit, but it’s also going to be the envy of all your friends – and everyone else on Instagram.”
Option #3 – This furry fella likes long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, and bathing in tubs of rum lattes. He’s the perfect breakfast companion.

Other Coffee Amo notables:

Coffee Amo Waffles & Cream (with blueberry syrup)

 

Feeka Coffee Roasters: 19, Jalan Mesui, Bukit Bintang, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A Kuala Lumpur favorite known for their spectacular service, coffee – and serving breakfast ALL day! Feeka’s menu is well-balanced and health-minded with a large dose of variety.

Best location for: The Charming Coffee Shop Enthusiast 

What to get: Umm…Everything?!  Pick just one item? Okay, the B.A.L.E.T.

Feeka’s B.A.L.E.T.

The menu describes it as: Beef bacon, eggs lettuce and avocado and roasted tomatoes served on top of toast.

What the menu should’ve said: “Piled high, this perfectly textured sandwich-eque delight will start your day sunny side up.”
