Mei Keng Fatt's food in Kuala Lumpur
Mei Keng Fatt's seafood restaurant in Kuala Lumpur is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Asia. Over 30 years I have trawled Chinese restaurants in Singapore, Saigon, Bangkok,Kathmandu, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Dhakha, Calcutta, Bombay, Delhi, Lahore, Colombo, Almaty, Samarkand, Dharamsala, Peshawar any many other cities. i first came here in 1983 and have become a regular.

Everytime I come to Kuala Lumpur I come with friends and enjoy the amazing array of seafood and tasty vegetarian dishes at Mei Keng Fatt. Last Friday night I had a gastromical feast in this humble eatery with no front wall or door, just exposed to the street. I took Naila and my boys along with my good friend Stefan Kuhne Hellmessen.

The most outstanding was a plate of succulent oysters and Australian lobster, washed down with Tiger beer, and the spinach soup which was delicious.
Ablai right watching as I get stuck into the lobster.
I can strongly recommend Fatt's food house to any one coming this way.

Below are a few photos of our trip in Kuala Lumpur. It was a great weekend.
I am now in Bangkok for regional meetings so will check the Thai and Chinese food out here.
