I'm traveling with my retired parents all over South East Asia and tomorrow, our travels take us to KL for a few days and then Penang for another. I've been scouring the CH boards for some recommendations and there definitely seems to be a good amount of places to check out. That said, I'd like to tender a request: If you had to pick eats that sum up the pulse of Malaysia, what would some of them be? Specifically in KL.
The caveat is that my father while adventurous, is diabetic so we have stay away from highly sweet food (we're now in Bangkok and Thai food is killing him). Being Chinese Canadian, my mother is relishing the fact that there will be plenty of Cantonese dishes available. Love to hear some of your opinions.
