Langkawi, Penang and KL with kids

Nanjinged | Nov 9, 2009 04:04 AM

Heading to Malaysia next week with 2 kids (4 & 8). Looking for any info on "family friendly" type places. Really most places will do, but would like to limit more to street food on up to Western casual, as the kids don't really appreciate haute atmosphere I would rather avoid the upper end type places.
We will be there for a couple weeks, so all cusines are fair game, but we live in China, so Chinese cusine isn't a must, but definitely not off limits, and decent Western food would be welcome. We love Thai and Indian flavors, but would also need to have some less spicy options for the kids. Though we're not yet too familiar with Malaysian flavors, are looking to give that a go, but internet research seems to show a drought of true Malaysian places in the touristy areas of Langkawi (where we will spend a majority of the time). Got a decent idea on some Penang hawker areas and restaurants, and also seem to be spoiled for choice in KL, but Langkawi has been a bit more difficult to nail down. Anyone been there recently and know where a decent area to hunt down some street food, or decent restaurants without horrendous mark ups? Also general suggestions are appreciated as we are sort of winging it and have yet to nail down specific areas and iteneraries.
Thanks
