KL 24 hour Food Crawl

Food. It unites and divides all Malaysians. It is the one thing on our minds day in, day out and all through the night.

We talk long and loud about the best food in the city and the country, of what can be found in every nook and cranny across the nation.

So, to celebrate April Fool’s Day and Malaysia’s 50th anniversary of independence and also MBKL’s existence – plonkwonk and friends – whom I will name later, are initiating the KL 24 hour Food Crawl!

You propose, we dispose – the best food of the hour every hour on the hour.

The challenge is simple. Send in your thoughts on the best food that is available for any or every given hour available that hour within the confines of Kuala Lumpur. Email it to plonkwonk@gmail.com

The April 1 KL 24 hour food crawl will be the prototype crawl, starting midnight April 1.

It’s a Sunday so some places might not be open. It will be in KL so please don’t suggest anything out of the 96 square kilometres that make up the city. It does not have to be pasta or bread pudding.

Street food or anything like steaming hot chicken rice with roast chicken at 3am will be fine.

And yes, you can join in. Everyone pays for their own food and as tastes might vary, I won’t ask those who propose a certain dish at a certain hour should pay if the dish is crap. So it won’t be a freeloader thingy.

Finally, anyone who can survive 24 hours crawling and chewing, moving and munching from spot to spot across the city will be named the the First KL Champion Food Crawler. And no, I won’t call that person a fool.

Yes. I have a thing about food.

Its called a stomach.

    Aaaaaah. Except for Hafiz’s input, no one online came in with any suggestions.

    Some places were shut down at midnight when Sharizal and I began our quest.

    We had three square meals in two and a half hours.We could not continue after the third stop.

    Photos and report soonest.

    Selangor? Damn. Don’t worry, KL has just annexed Ampang.
