Chicken wings While there are many ways to pre­pare chicken wings, the wings we’re talk­ing about are served in a mari­nade made of soy sauce, gar­lic, gin­ger, honey and white pep­per, grilled over a char­coal fire and con­tin­u­ously basted to re­tain the juici­ness. Try it at Wong Ah Wah 1-9 Jalan Alor, off Jalan Bukit Bin­tang, KL.

KL Hokkien mee Don’t con­fuse this with Pe­nang’s ver­sion as KL’s take is served sans soup in a dark sauce, and with a sin­ful amount of crispy lard. The lo­cals also call it or mee or black noo­dles. Try it at Mun Wah Hokkien Mee 155 Jalan Ma­hara­jalela, KL; Restoran Ah Wa 66 Jalan 14/48, PJ.
