Suria KLCC is one of the busiest shopping areas at Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers. It’s ultra popular, and the Petronas Twin Towers were the world’s tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004 – it’s really massive in person! The towers are ranked at #16 now. Basically, it’s a must-visit if you’re visiting Kuala Lumpur, just like how you have to visit the Harbour Bridge and Opera House if you’re visiting Sydney.
The food court is jam-packed with ravished visitors at lunchtime (i.e. the craziest time of the day), therefore if you’re in the area after breakfast time in the morning, you could head there to taste local food without the crowd. Each food stall looks enticing and contemplating between choosing different dishes is probably most tourists’ dilemma, including mine.
I decided to try the bbq chicken rice from the chicken rice stall. This particular dish isn’t reminiscent to the traditional chicken rice that I’ve eaten, instead, the rice’s taste and colour were unique. The barbeque chicken had a thick Asian-style barbeque sauce. Chili sauce was included on the side as well to add a bit of heat.
Desserts of the day were Indian sweets. A piece of jalebi and a large scoop of orange kesari were enough to give me a sugar rush, however, they were delicious! The jalebi is deep-fried batter with a sugar syrup coat, and kesari is a soft semolina confection. Their flavours are pretty different from the usual Southeast Asian desserts (read this post for Malaysian desserts!). It’s always fun to taste a variety of desserts, hence why I enjoy eating at food courts – you’ll have different cuisines under one roof!
