The choices of fruits are incredible in Malaysia. You will find an amazing selection in supermarkets, but for the cheapest prices and best quality, it is always best to go directly to the sources. I’ve never been so excited to visiting a market:) and it is definitely heaven on Earth for me!
As I stepped into the colorful market, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There was a huge amount of fruits and veggies everywhere you look. After spending a half day in the market, we took a few hundred pictures – you just can’t get enough. So, for today let the photos do the talking and your eyes do the walking, enjoy!
Chow Kit Morning Market
One of the highlights of my KL trip is the fantastic variety of tropical fruits sold at Chow Kit Morning Market (the city largest market) However, there are dozens of exotic varieties of fruits and vegetables many of which I’ve never seen before, or I’ve never heard of them.
Just to mention, as a vegan be careful which way you are entering – the market also known as a wet market (sadly with a reason) The good news is inside the building separated into sections. Long story short, enter the market by the last few lines at the left end for the cruelty-free part of it.
The hardest part for me of eating healthy on this trip was Borneo, finding vegan food was not very easy. Since we stayed at a hotel and the healthy options was limited so I had a lot of plan rice, shredded carrots, tomatoes and black olives mostly for breakfast. Well, I had a feeling that it’d be miraculous if we able to find a restaurant that turns out to be any good for a vegan. At the end of our awesome nine days of Kuching/Borneo trip, we found a small place that let’s say Vegan-friendly. We also discover during this vegan restaurant hunting trip some certain place that I can imagine vegetarians would enjoy. Finding a local juice bar was the easy part. But most of the place, just like in Bali they call smoothies as juice. Anyway, to find real juices the best way to search for juice bars in shopping centers. Make sure that the juices/smoothies are not including a good few tablespoon extra sugar. We’ve been ordering our drink always like please, no sugar, no ice. Some place in this case charging a bit extra money for replacing ice with fruits or veggies otherwise they sell excellent juices.
There’s also a place call Chinatown – full of with roadside fruit sellers and small shops but it’s full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Easy to find bargains on fresh fruits and veggies there.
Durian Madness – In Malaysia, you’ll find durian eaten many way: pureed, dried, boiled, fried, powdered, durian ice cream, durian flavored instant coffee, durian pancake, durian candy, durian cream filled chocolate bonbons… and list goes on.
