Kuala Lumpur Day 1: Breakfast at Kepong Baru Market

We arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 2am. Luckily, my brother, Pong came to pick us up. However, Pong did not check the flight status and he waited for more than 2 hours.


KLIA was brand new when I left Kuala Lumpur. It was still well maintain after more than 10 years.


I’m pretty impressed with the airport.


We waited till morning before venturing out for breakfast. We took a cab to the Kepong Baru Market for Ben’s favourite breakfast dishes. It’s an open market with coffee shops in surrounding areas.


First item we had was Ben’s favourite rice roll with pork rind in curry sauce. This was RM5.30 (about CAD 1.75).


I requested for some sort of tofu skin with the rice roll curry which I like.


Then we went to a coffee shop for other food. I had hot coffee with milk while Ben had iced coffee with milk. The coffee here has a thicker consistency. Notice how the hot coffee is served overflows to the saucer. Both cups cost RM3.20 (about CAD1).


Ben had fried koay teow with cockles. It was RM4.50 (CAD1.50). It was very satisfying.


I had my favourite fish head vermicelli in soup. I like the milky broth with the tomatoes and sour cabbage.


It came with deep fried fish pieces. This was RM5.50 (CAD1.80).


I also had a piece of the above “kueh”. I do not what it’s called, but it’s my childhood favourite. Just RM0.60 (CAD0.20). More food to come. This will be a culinary series.

    Im surprised you had pork right away. When we were there it was impossible to get pork anywhere. I guess a different area would have it – so many neighborhoods. Such an interesting place!

    You’ll have to chat up more about kueh. Never seen it before.
    I love cockles but wouldn’t think of it for breakfast. Obviously I sound very Canadian.
