First timers to Kuala Lumpur, like myself, might make the mistake of thinking that Brickfields is a specific place, but it’s not. Brickfields is an area to explore, a suburb, and so when we got our Grab driver to ‘drop us anywhere that’s good’, he let us off at the top of what seemed to be the main street.
We went at night, and I honestly feel that was the best time to go. The heat and humidity died down, the dinner queues were lining up, the shop fronts were blaring competing techno-Bollywood tunes. The whole place was a cacophony of sound and colour. Brickfields is famous for their multicoloured structures and street decorations and I found that wandering the streets at night just made everything more festive, with lamplight and fairylights coming from everywhere.
There’s no shortage of Indian diners to eat at. We found one that was packed from the back and spilled out the front, with bain-maries of curries and rices, and al a carte options. There’s street theatrics as master chefs make dosas and teh tahrik for the public.
Go to Brickfields for dinner, it’s a sonic and culinary experience.
