Travels: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Little India (Brickfields)

After visiting the Batu Caves, we were super hungry and wanted to check out Little India/Brickfields for some lunch. Like I wrote before, all the subway/train lines connect to the KL Sentral Station and it’s probably the easiest way to transfer between lines. We had to go back to KL Sentral anyways and so getting to Little India wasn’t hard at all.

You do have to walk a few blocks to get to the area and it’s not official until you see these pillars! Trust me, you’ll hear the bollywood soundtracks blaring wayyy before you get there. Follow the music. Haha.

I really loved the design and color the pillars that lined the main street.

Little India Brickfields!

There were a lot of shops leading up to the street and on the street as well. Most were restaurants, video stores, sari/jewelry stores, and local grocery stores.

Lunch! Did you know that naan is usually made for dinner? So we settled on a different type of flat bread. It was brought out with different dipping sauce/thin curries. The smaller plate on the left is chicken curry. SO GOOD.

I wanted more to eat so I kind of randomly picked something off the menu. It turns out to be similar to an omelet with chicken in it. It was good, but that curry was amazing and so it didn’t really hit the spot for me.

On our way back to KL Sentral Station we saw stands selling fried snacks.

One of which were SAMOSAS!!

We ended our visit to Little India with freshly fried samosas and headed to the National Mosque.

FYI: Most restaurants there are open to the outside without air conditioning.

TIP: Carry your own toilet paper and napkins! We asked for napkins repeatedly since eating with your hands can get messy, but we got only like 3 sheets. Haha.

Overall: I thought it was a nice place to grab lunch, especially if you love Indian food. However it can be a little out of the way if you aren’t in the area already. Have fun!
