What should my first dish in KL be?

Hi! I'm taking a friend to watch the MotoGP in Sepang, and we're super excited to visit. This friend hasn't ventured outside India ever, and is curious and open to try new things. I want to understand what is the one dish that truly represents Malaysia, and what should that first dish for lunch be in KL?

Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

The first dish that came to mind is nasi lemak. It's one of the top favorite Malaysian foods for all the people groups in Malaysia. However, there are so many delicious foods that represent Malaysia's multi-ethnic society. Here are a few listed according to their ethnic origins:

1. Malay - satay serve with peanut sauce and ketupat (boiled white rice wrapped in woven palm leaf pouch)

2. Chinese - Hokkien Mee (thick udon-like noodles cooked in thick black soy sauce with vegetables and meat

3. Indian - roti canai with lentil dal curry

Try these out in Kuala Lumpur.
