KUALA LUMPUR
Melbourne, VIC

In the middle of a major suburban street in Carnegie, there are more than a fair share of eating opportunities, but Kuala Lumpur restaurant has got the market cornered with its popular mix of Chinese and Malay flavours. Hugely popular in the area for its buttermilk pork ribs and sizzling chicken in satay sauce, this neighbourhood eatery proves that a great meal can be just around the corner.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Koornang Street takes food pretty seriously. Next door to Kuala Lumpur, with its mainly Malaysian cuisine, there's a Korean restaurant. There are hot bread shops, butchers, a giant greengrocer, a Russian food store and lots more. Out here, they like eating, at reasonable prices at that. Kuala Lumpur is a straightforward place, with a takeaway counter at the front, a rather tired red carpet, and scene-setting poster-sized photographs and paintings on the walls. There's also a blackboard that lists the day's specials.

The menu is pretty long, and Malaysian choices are supplemented by dishes with a decidedly Chinese accent. The dumplings here are very tasty indeed – the vegetarian ones especially are highly recommended. A hungry table could order every kind of dumpling – Shanghai, scallop, prawn, shui mai, vegetarian and shark fin – and still be ready for more. Or start with a big plate of mixed appetisers that includes spring rolls and curry puffs. Fish is a good choice here – you can't go wrong with the deep-fried flounder. And for anyone hanging out for a gasping-for-breath hot Malaysian dry curry; this is your place as it sometimes makes it onto the specials board. On weekends there's yum cha, the wine list is reasonable, and the waiters friendly. So all in all, it's a good choice on a street full of dining temptations.
