Kuala Lumpur Chinatown Street Food Guide!! FLAMING HOT CLAYPOT + Chinese Street Food in Malaysia

Street Food for You
Chinatown (Petaling Street) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is a hotspot for all your Chinese food needs in Malaysia! We take you around to the best Chinese street food spots in KL!

First we started by visiting a 70 year old stall famous for selling raw fish congee. I had never tried this dish before and was unsure exactly how to eat it. However once biting into the soft fish I fell in love! This was the best dish of the day for sure! The fragrant sesame oil and ginger flavour combined with the smooth congee and subtle seafood flavour makes my mouth water writing this right now!

Our second stop was for some famous clam (La La) noodles! This restaurant was packed full of locals and featured many different stalls selling typical Malay Chinese food! We went straight for the famous noodle stall. The broth was incredibly rich and spicy, again with lots of ginger. Unfortunately the clams did not taste fresh at all and were full of gritty sand.

Chinatown has all kinds of history and once of the best things to do is to visit a temple! We stopped for a quick peek inside this ancient Chinese temple in the heart of Chinatown!

After cooling off in the temple we visited a famous shop selling soy products. We tried the tofu pudding which was served piping hot! It was sweet and delicious.

Right across the street from the soy bean shop is an old stall selling dried longan fruit juice. It tasted like plum juice.

To finish the day we went outside chinatown to visit an no named claypot chicken shop! The preparation here was awesome! All on charcoal with 14+ claypots going all at once. The owner was very friendly but the service was slow. We waited about 45 minutes while enjoying a popular lime juice. Once the claypot arrived we were again slightly disappointed do to a bitter flavour. The chicken was big and juicy but the ratio of rice to chicken was off and the rice tasted somewhat burnt.
