Street Vendors, Kuala Lumpur
Every day while driving out in the morning we'd pass this guy on the street making Roti. At first I thought he was making tortillas. Then told that it was roti. It looks and tastes similar to tortillas but the size was much bigger. Also, my friends seem to use the word roti, for most types of bread.
If you pass by this type of shop, stop and watch Roti being made, then order some for breakfast or to take with you for a later meal. It can be filled with something savory or sweet. How ever you like it.
Money changers tend to offer better exchange rates than the many of the banks around KL.
They are to be found in or near most shopping malls and are they are also open late plus on weekends.
Favorite thing: The Tarik if translate into English is “Streching tea”. It is one of the famous Malaysian drink. Tea Tarik is also part of daily life of many Malaysian. It is nice to enjoy Tea Tarik in the morning, afternoon or late drinks at night. The tea is delicious with composition of tea and milk and blending into stretching the tea from one cup to another. The The Tarik making is also one of the tourist attractions.
Favorite thing: When you are in Kuala Lumpur spoil yourself in a luxurious local hawker fare. You may relish the best of Malaysian cuisines eg., BBQ, Seafood, Satay, Char Kuey Penang Laksa Teow, Rojak, Roti Canai etc. there are hundreds of hawker standing and waiting to serve you.
There are also street vendors in KL but I never saw like one is Bangkok where I am now...I've seen this one near in Bukit Bentang's KFC. They sell etc's from wallet, watches and more. And they also have some costumers coming!
Fondest memory: You must also try to take part in around this area specialy during night time..alot of people walking around...
Fondest memory: Observing local street vendors. This old lady, hunched over her basket, was selling eggs in the street.
