Food Adventures in KL and Beyond
Food Adventures in Thailand
We were told it was all chicken or pork. The 4 things we tried were really tasty!
Lunch in Phuket, green curry. This is in the running for best thing I’ve eaten, ever.
Micah’s lunch in Phuket, listed on the menu as Thai curry. It was also really good, and not as spicy as I was expecting!
In KL, they make this sauce with green chilies in soy sauce. The Thai version with red chilies was a little more firey, but not bad.
Last day lunch, Pad Thai. It was tasty, but needed more chilies. I assume they made it mild so tourists could add their own spice level.
Last day lunch. We can’t remember what kind of curry Micah chose, but it was good!
The “after” picture of the crabs. Great spicy broth.
The “after” picture of the lobster. Grilled with garlic and butter.
Banana crepe! With Nutella inside and some delicious icing on top. We wanted many more, but only had room for the one.
Food Adventures in Cambodia
Unfortunately, I can’t remember the names of most of the dishes we ate. What I do remember is that all of the flavors tasted very fresh, there was a lot of vegetables, and nothing was drowned in sauce. We tried to get all of the “traditional” dishes that we could and liked them all!
Larb. Micah’s favorite. He said it was perfect: spiced meat and various vegetables he could eat with his hands.
A traditional Cambodian dish, which I cannot remember the name of. A little spicy, but not very spicy.
Micah’s dinner. It had more spice than mine, but still tasty!
My favorite lunch. Mango chicken salad. A little tart, perfect on a hot day.
Food Adventures in KL
The food in Kuala Lumpur, whether it is street food or not, is amazing. No one is going hungry at our house!
My favorite breakfast. Nasi lemak- egg, coconut rice with cucumber, peanuts, dried fish, and sambal- a red chili sauce. I like to mix it all together, but that doesn’t make a pretty picture. Also mini pau dumplings, with a savory chicken filling.
Fried sting ray, from a hawker stall.
Fried rice, nasi durang, from our favorite hawker stall. This is chicken, but they also offer mutton and fish.
Dessert from a hawker stall! it’s shaved ice with a mango syrup/sauce. So good.
Chicken Dumplings. These are breakfast foods. It tastes a little like the filling in a won ton.
Jack fruit. The taste is difficult to describe. It’s not as sweet as a mango, but is fibrous like one.
Dinner on Jalan Alor. Veggies, black pepper crab, and pork ribs. So tasty.
Cuttle fish. The sauce was very rich and salty. It has peanuts on top.
Ramen Soup. I accidentally dumped sauce that was intended for dumplings, but I think it made a lovely addition to the soup.
I can’t remember the name of this. They were little dumplings, some had prawns and some had pork.
Fried noodles from our favorite hawker stall.
Fried Kuey Teow. This is a very popular and tasty dish.
Putu Bambu. Rice powder steamed in a bamboo tube, filled with brown sugar. So tasty!
We walked into an Indian restaurant and ordered the lunch special. This is what we got. It was the first time we ate with our hands, rather than a utensil of some type.
Coconut ice cream, in a coconut shell, with shaved coconut topping.
I can’t remember the name of this dish. Mee Jawa maybe? I liked it, whatever it was!
The intrepid adventurers drinking coconut water out of coconuts!
Duck noodles on Jalan Alor, the famous street for street food.
One of Micah’s lunches at work. He spends an average of $2-3 USD per day on lunch. Total bargain.
I went to a hawker stall near the hotel for lunch. The proprieter didn’t speak a lot of English, so I’m not sure what I actually ate. It cost a little less $1 USD though and it was tasty!
This is a dessert/drink. That large white object is a quail egg. It was very sweet and very refreshing.
Spicy seafood ramen. This was one of Micah’s selections, not mine.
Curry pot chicken, from a hawker stall. Delicious!
Asian breakfast at the hotel. Some rice, some noodles, a chicken dumpling, and an egg for protein. The small dish is chili padi. It’s soy sauce with super hot chilies that Malaysians put on everything.
