Kuala Lumpur, or KL as it is often called, is the largest city in Malaysia. According to Lonely Planet, “The founding of KL was almost an accident. In 1857, 87 Chinese prospectors in search of tin landed at the meeting point of the Klang and Gombak rivers and set up camp, naming the spot Kuala Lumpur, meaning ‘muddy confluence’.”
These days Kuala Lumpur is more famous for the Petronas Twin Towers than it is for the twin muddy rivers. I have written about my frequent trips from Singapore to KL but this post is about an opportunity I had to share my favourite part of KL with some visiting Canadians.
We began our evening at Bijan Bar & Restaurant which advertises that they serve “fine Malay cuisine”. The food, the ambiance, and the service were all great. This restaurant is located in the trendy Bukit Bintang area so there were plenty of places to choose from for a ‘nightcap’ after we finished our wonderful meal.
