I have been travelling a lot around the region and Europe, and thrill about the idea of introducing the unique local cuisines that Malaysia has to offer. I've already done numerous walking tours of Kuala Lumpur for my guests with Couchsurfing and currently, I'm doing an Airbnb walking tour experience of the city. With encouragements from my guests, I've decided to add the foodie tour experience. My goal is for guests to sample and savour the few various local dishes, as well as snacks and sweets. Food is part of culture and with this unique experience, my hope is for guests to understand the multi cultural aspect of Malaysia is reflected in the local dishes.

This was an amazing experience and highly recommend it. Totally worth the money, I wouldn’t have tried or even found some of these foods if it wasn’t for Alvin. He was an incredible host that knew something about just about everything. Don’t leave KL without doing this! PS: be cautious of the durian... he loves it....😉

I really enjoy the food tour with Alvin. I also did the walking tour with him so I knew him and I liked the way he is doing his tours. We ate different dishes, everything delicious and special for KL. If you want to have a nice evening with good food and nice chats than book a tour with Alvin!

My experience on the tour and with Alvin was great! I found this tour as I wanted to squeeze in a food tour last minute so I could try a bunch of local specialties without being lost. Alvin is very friendly and very knowledgeable about many things. We talked about various topics outside of just the food (which he knew about very well). I was so full by the end of the tour! The tour itself was very organized as Alvin prefaced it in the beginning - separating each stop by the type of food that best represents KL. Personally I didn't love every single dish we ate, but it was a good way to sample many things and I was able to have some things I wouldn't have normally thought about ordering.

Almost like getting to experience Parts Unknown. Not to the full extent that Anthony Bourdain would go because it's not a TV show but, they way we would go around to different places and he already knew what to order and could explain how it was special and what made it different than other places was amazing. Would totally recommend to anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur.

The city walking tour we did with Alvin before the food tour was great. The food tour is a new one and perhaps needs to be fleshed out a bit more.
