Malaysia is known for its food but between our comfy sofa, Apple TV, and epic grocery buys, we’ve become quite the homebodies with dining and entertainment. On Saturday it was time to break the pattern and finally make our way to Jalan Alor, one of KL’s most well known spots for street grub.
There was all sorts of good stuff: Malaysian, Chinese, Thai but instead of opting for a big meal from one restaurant, we went to different stalls and built our own feast. I loved trying all the new-to-us satays from squid to mushroom…there’s not much that they won’t put on a stick! For dessert I went for durian ice cream. Durian, the King of Fruit as they call it here, is known for being stinky. I can’t say that I understand where some people’s repulsion comes from but I do know that I loved that ice cream.
The bustle, the smells, the sense of a mini-adventure…I can’t wait to try more food, new streets, and leave the comfort of our blue sofa more often. Much more often.
