What do you do when you’re at an Indian restaurant and no one brings you a fork or spoon? Wash your hands, of course. Cause you’ll be diving into that food with your right hand.
Although expecting to stuff my face with as much Indian food as possible during my last stay in Kuala Lumpur, what I did not anticipate was the mood it put me in. I began by buying Indian clothes, watching a three-hour Bollywood movie I’d been putting off for too long, and falling in love with the entire soundtrack. Then I found myself at a banana leaf restaurant eating by hand, all the while watching Bollywood music videos.
If you’re a foodie, the best area to stay at in KL is Bukit Bintang. Beltif Hotel is quite good, offers free breakfast, and is ideal for the budget traveler. Not to mention it’s within 3-5 minutes walking distance of a killer Egyptian restaurant, a deliciously cheap hawker on the corner, and at least 3 convenience stores including 7-11.
