Interest aroused by strains of jazz music, the gentle clinking of glasses and whispers of conversations coming from The Lobby Lounge, the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s elegant dining room-cum-lounge, I peeked in to find well-shod ladies and gentlemen at tables laden with Sunday lunch and bottles of Laurent-Perrier champagne.

Kuala Lumpur (aka KL), the capital city of Malaysia, is a huge melting pot of people, cultures and cuisine. From Malay, Chinese, Indian and regional cuisines to international offerings that experiment with local flavours, eating here is a national obsession, and food is cheap too! Street fare is hugely popular and eating out into the wee hours of the night is the norm. While most others stop with breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner, city folks continue their love affair with food with supper and maybe even a late night bite before finally retiring for the day. It is a consuming affair but one that everyone does with great relish! Here’s a quick roundup of the city’s popular enclaves that are popular with the locals.
