where to booze in KL

Coconuts KL Food & Drink

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the best eating city in the world, if you don’t count Tokyo, London, New York, and some parts of the Amalfi coast. We are at an Asian crossroads here, and we have the best of the region, with incredible variants and nuances that only Coconuts KL can explain. What makes the Char Kway Teoh at one road side restaurant divine, yet the one down the street furiously hot mess? There aren’t enough noodle adjectives for us to explain, but dear reader, we will try. If you’re looking for laksa, the delicious noodle soup appropriated by Singaporeans, originated and dominated by Malaysians, then Coconuts KL is the right place for you. Let us guide you through Nyonya Laksa, to Sarawakian Laksa, to the ultra-fishy Penang Assam Laksa. These bowls of heaven need the kind of introductions fit for Roman Kings, because they stand as royalty in our cuisine repertoire. Have you ever had a fried chicken wing fried so crispy, to umami goodness, that it brought tears to your eyes? Let us tell you about it, tell you about all of them. Bring elasticated trousers to the party. Fancy a drink? How about the latest bars that are popping up all over our dear city? We serve up all of the best spots for top shelf liquors, luxury surroundings, kitschy nooks, local flavors and the best lighting. If you want to avoid the mess that is Changkat yourself in the morning a little bit more, confidently take out your nearest, dearest, or just someone you want to impress respect … then this is the place for you at Coconuts KL.
