Eater, one of the most read and respected food publications, released its highly-anticipated The Best Food Cities to Travel to in 2022 list, detailing 13 of the best food cities to travel to this year. Kuala Lumpur made the list as Asia's sole representative.
We couldn't help but agree with the inclusion. Ask any Malaysian what they're most proud of about this country and nine times out of ten, food would be one of the top answers. The city is truly a smorgasbord of flavours and cuisines. From char kuay teow to chai tow kway, from nasi lemak to mee goreng mamak, and ayam ponteh to bak kut teh, Malaysian food is truly one-of-a-kind.
We got in touch with Eddie Chew of Troika Sky Dining, Chef Lee Zhe Xi of Eat and Cook, and food blogger Yi Jun Loh of Jun & Tonic for their reactions to the news.
