[KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA] This pile of exotic all-local herbs is one of the most exciting salads I’ve EVER had. One look at the ingredients, and you’d probably agree: jackfruit, banana blossom, coriander, sawtooth coriander, jackfruit, ulamraja, pegaga and kerisik kelapa. And no, that’s not shredded cheese, it’s coconut.
Kuala Lumpur is Asia’s most unassuming city for outstanding food and innovative restaurants — and Cho Cha is testament to that. Branded as a #foodstore , not a restaurant, it serves modern contemporary Malaysian cuisine with locally sourced ingredients & natural wine. It also occupies a former brothel in Petaling Street’s red-light district, adding to its evocative allure. This low key haunt might be one of my best-kept secrets in Asia. - 1 hour ago
