Real KL food tour
Mar 2020
We met Eez and immediately connected with her fun and informative narrative on the history of KL. We walked around the locality trying everyday food eaten by locals in everyday places. We certainly wouldn’t have found these on our own, and we were made welcome at each one, clearly Eez was well liked. Visiting the markets was a highlight with the added bonus of seeing & trying new fruits and veg, and then touring the meat and fish markets. These markets showed us how the Malaysians, Indians and Chinese all live, eat and work in harmony. If discovering new foods eaten by locals is your thing then don’t miss this lively, energetic and delicious tour!

More than a food tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
THANK YOU so much to EEZ for making our KL trip such a wonderful adventure! We experienced fascinating places like Chow Kit market and tasty local foods we likely would not have discovered on our own (such as the delicious tumeric stew and native fruits). We especially loved the Nasi Lemak restaurant and the detailed explanations about the cultural and historical significance of the sites we visited and foods we ate. A fun bonus was seeing the Chinese New Year lion dance at Petronas Twin Towers. Thank you for honoring our tour reservation despite the holiday!!

We loved our tour to Chow Kit Market and beyond with Ezy!
Dec 2019
We enjoyed our “Flavors of Malaysia (Off the Beaten Track)” tour with Ezy in December 2019. We had wanted to visit the Chow Kit Market and so doing a guided tour in this area seemed like a great way to go. We’ve done other food tours in Asia (including the “Eat Drink George Town” tour also with Simply Enak), and they’ve been a great way to try lots of delicious local food and spend less time figuring out where to go, what to order, and/or dealing with language challenges.

Ezy is a wonderful guide. She knows a phenomenal amount about all the food, as well as Malaysian history past and present. I loved how she took us to so many little stalls and stands. Some food highlights: chili pork noodles, chicken rendang, fried banana, fresh iced coconut juice with slices of coconut in it, and a crepe-like taco-like thing with a sweet peanut sauce inside (more about that in a minute).

Although this is a walking tour, you cover a couple really cool neighborhoods: the Chow Kit Market area, as well as Kampung Baru. Both neighborhoods have tons of character and haven’t been reduced to endless skyscrapers and shopping malls. (We hope that they can somehow remain that way). In between the 2 neighborhoods, you walk through an area with some traditional Malay houses on stilts. I love markets, so it was so fun to walk through the expanse of Chow Kit and see everything under the sun for sale: herb tonics for a number of ailments, all kinds of street food carts and stalls, fruit and vegetables, chickens, seafood, etc. Kampung Baru has a few large streets with all kinds of food for sale. We stopped at a place that had so many kinds of chicken with delicious sauces: sambal chicken, fried chicken (coated with tons of herbs and spices), chicken rendang, etc. When we were walking after that, I saw a vendor with a cart making something that looked like a crepe that had a dollop of peanut sauce on the inside and was folded like a taco. I was curious about it, so Ezy got a couple for us. It was delicious! It’s too bad I have no idea what this dessert is called. If you see it, you must try it.

You meet the tour guide at the Chow Kit monorail station, which makes it easy.

Food Tour through Chow Kit
Jan 2020
I set up a food tour with my family of four, wife and two kids, hoping it would provide a different and unique experience of viewing the culture of Kuala Lumpur. Our guide, Danny NG, provided just that and more. We were all very well pleased with the different food entrees, deserts, bakery and fruits that Danny guided us through. But most importantly, he did a nice job of explaining where we were going, the culture and context behind the different food items we tasted. It really gave more meaning and important to the food we tasted and the food was really good! Especially the noodles! I would highly recommend using this tour group and ask for Danny NG as your tour guide. He was wonderful. We did this tour on the last day of our stay in Malaysia and it was a nice way to end our trip through this wonderful and amazing country!

Off the Beaten Culinary Path in KL
Excellent food tour with our guide, EEZ. He took us “off the beaten path” (as advertised), allowing us to sample delicious foods from stands and trucks we would definitely not have glanced at twice. The tour of the Wet Market was the highlight. Very relaxing day, with a mix of tasty foods and informative details about the history and local culture of KL. Highly recommended.

Food tour well worth the money
Oct 2019
Just finished Simply Enak’s “Street food of Kuala Lumpur” and thought it was great. Definitely worth the money. There was a wide range of foods from different cultures and types of vendors, from a multiple generation sticky bun stall to a cutting-edge restaurant in a gentrifying Chinatown location.

More than just a food tour
Aug 2019
More than just a food tour – although that is enticing enough to a dedicated foodie such as I – Simply Enak is based on food, of course, but also the sources of food, culture, and history represented in every plate plate. I enjoyed exploring Kuala Lumpur with our tour guide, Ezz. She is very knowledgeable and fun!

We had the absolute pleasure of taking this tour with Ezy as our guide. Ezy is very friendly and fun as well as being very knowledgeable about all things Malaysia. The tour exceeded our expectations and we not only learned about and tasted the amazing food, but also learned a lot about the history and culture of this wonderful country. We highly recommend this tour and yes, Ezy, we have had enough to eat! :-) THANK YOU!

Perfect way to start our Malaysia trip
Jul 2019 • Couples
We did a private food tour with Rose as our guide. She did not only show us the best food in China Town, but also lots of interesting street art in the neighborhood. Not only did Rose tell us a lot about Malaysian food, we also learnt so much about Malaysia as a country.
We did this tour on our first night of our 4 week Malaysia trip, and there was no better way to start it, honestly. Would definitely recommend booking this tour!

Off the beaten track Food Tour
Jun 2019 • Friends
Had the wonderful opportunity to go a walking tour of KL / Petaling Street with Pauline. Even as a Malaysian, i was amazed at her knowledge and navigation around the different nooks and crannies of Petaling Street. She brought us to experience a side of life not normally seen by many. Intertwined with the unique eats were stories and experiences of traders, stall operators and small business owners which creates a rich tapestry of culture and cuisine. A must of you want to taste, see and hear the heartbeat of Kuala Lumpur life. Highly recommended.
