Traveling is also part of discovering new eating places. This second part of my Kuala Lumpur food article continues with many more interesting dining places.

It is an absolutely great meaty meal at El Cerdo located on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Together with some friends, we sampled El Cerdo’s notable dish of suckling pig and other dishes like Iberico ribs, sausage platter and seafood paella.

The half size piglet is priced at RM188. The waiter gestured us to cut the piglet with a plate. Not only is it a memorable experience for us but the food also delighted our taste buds. The suckling piglet done with amazingly crispy skin and soft meat with melting fat had everyone asking for seconds.

Among the choices of desserts, we had the raspberry sherbet and the rum and raisin ice cream. The latter is far better of the two.

Our trips to Kuala Lumpur had us visiting many places, savoring the city’s food and staying at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Recommended by friends Alison and Narelle, the hotel with a casual, hip vibe offers solid bed to help us sleep through the nights.

The hotel is a convenient place of accommodation, especially for those who do not have transport as it is located opposite the KL Sentral transportation hub.

The up-and-coming World Street Food Congress (WSFC) organised by Makansutra will take place on 31st May till 9th June 2013. Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, the ten-day festival held at the F1 Pit Building and Paddock (1 Republic Boulevard) is not too be missed by all foodies and aficionados.

K.F. Seetoh, founder of Makansutra and TV host of The Food Surprise! on TLC Asia, unveiled the details of the WSFC at a press conference held last February at the Spice Market in New York City which comprises three main prongs:

- World Street Food Jamboree
- World Street Food Dialogue
- World Street Food Awards

The World Street Food Jamboree (31 May to 9 June) is a mega street food feast whereby around 40 of the world’s best street food masters gather and showcase their products. Visitors get to learn culinary cultures and enjoy new taste of hand-picked street foods from Indonesia, India, Thailand, Vietnam, USA, Mexico, Malaysia, Denmark, China and Singapore.

Keep an eye on the many exciting offerings, such as Pisang Roa (smoked fish sambal) and Kerak Telor (crispy glutinous rice frittata) from Indonesia, Banh Da Tom Hai Phong (prawn and fish red rice noodle) and Banh Khot (seafood rice cake) from Vietnam, Shrimps & Grits from United States and Bao Luo Fen from China. Not to be missed is the popular Penang Assam Laksa from Malaysia. This spicy-sour fish base soup noodle was voted No. 7 under CNNGo International Food Survey as “foods worth traveling the world to gorge on”.

Among the showcase stalls at the jamboree are Meyers Kokken by Claus Meyer (co-owner of NOMA, Denmark) and Lion City from Vietnam. Visitors can expect roasted Pork Sandwich and Seafood Teppanyaki (Singapore style).

Having afternoon tea at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Batu Ferringhi, Penang is a real indulgence. I remembered my first noteworthy exposure with Rasa Sayang’s afternoon tea at the Rasa Wing Lounge.

It came with a 3-tier plate rack, with cakes, scones accompanied with cream and jam along with savory treats. Until today, the tradition of afternoon tea is still observed in both the Rasa Wing Lounge and the Spice Market Cafe over at the Garden Wing.
