Best Places to Have Soup in Kuala Lumpur
Actor Morgan Freeman once said that during cold temperatures, rather than having alcohol, one must have a bowl of hot soup. Hey, if Morgan Freeman says it, you know the Almighty has spoken. The Malaysians do adhere to this advice by the legendary actor throughout the year, no matter the season. If you want to mollycoddle yourself with a bowl of piping hot soup or broth, here are three of the best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur that will satiate this desire of yours:
Keong Kee Herbal Soup: A simple shack-like setting located next to an open air car park, this humble eatery is a hit among locals and tourists alike for its Coconut chicken soup that is served in coconut shells.
Levain Boulangerie & Pâtisserie: A French-inspired bakery and café housed in a cosy bungalow, taste Europe on your taste buds by sampling its popular Creamy mushroom chicken soup.
Huck’s Café: Homely and warm, this snug place does complete justice to the classic Fresh onion soup. Crusty bread, clear and flavourful broth and melted cheese-you just can’t go wrong with this one!
One of the easier ways to ensure that your soup craving is quenched immediately, book your tickets and reach these beautiful locations in a jiffy.
Malaysian street foods you have to devour!
Walking down streets and streets lined with nothing else apart from food stalls, the air filled with spicy-sweet aromas and dishes laden with juicy seafood, veggies, fluffy pancakes… this is every foodie’s dream come true. And this image comes to life when you touch down in Malaysia. The next time you visit this country, get tickets for your bus with RED BUS (hassle-free transport is a true story too) to different cities here, enter food paradise and definitely savour these three dishes:
Rojak: A fruit and vegetable salad that will get your mouth watering at the very sight of it. This dish is a winner due to the deliciously thick, brown-black savoury sauce that is spooned over it generously and bears a hint of shrimp!
Chendul: It’s dessert. And it’s a soup. Green Jello-ish squiggles and red beans drowning sweetly in a soup of santan, palm sugar and coconut milk, poured over lumps of ice and further dressed with some more coconut milk-now that’s what we call a sweet welcome.
