Come before 5pm and you’ll be greeted by an ordinary-looking parking spot. But once the sun sets, it transforms into Tapak Urban Street Dining all the way till 12am! You’ll find rows and rows of food trucks, tents, benches, tables and a live band— what more could you ask for? We checked out this lively place and curated a list of 10 must-try food trucks at Tapak KLCC!

1. Walla Walla

Blooming onions, cheesy fries, fried mushrooms, calamari, fish fingers— Walla Walla offers you every possible indulgent fried snack at their food truck. Best part? It comes with the sauce of your choice— creamy Ship Tartar, sweet and tangy Hey! Chipotle, smokey Flambelicious and Mayo Ecstasy.

We got our hands on the Fried Mushrooms (RM8) along with a mini tub of Ship Tartar dipping sauce. This is definitely best eaten hot and the perfect snack to munch on while surveying the other food trucks in the area.

We gave the Chilli Macaroni and Cheese (RM17) a go. The pasta was topped off with plenty of steaming hot cheddar cheese, so you’ll satisfy all your cheese cravings in just this one dish. The sauce’s flavour is like beef chilli con carne, with the addition of macaroni.

Pisang goreng cheese, anyone? Yes! This Indonesian delicacy has been popping up left, right and centre of every empty spot— and now in Tapak KLCC. The Gorpis doesn’t just stop at pisang goreng cheese though, they have different flavours for you to choose from: Cheese Caramel, Cheese Ferrero, Cheese Chocolate, Cheese Butterscotch and even Cheese Matcha Green Tea

We settled on the original which was the Gorpis Cheese (RM10). Freshly-fried banana fritters coated in generous shavings of cheese. I’ve personally tried pisang goreng cheese in Indonesia which very quickly became my favourite snack while I stayed there. The Gorpis pisang goreng cheese was crunchy and cheesy but I wished the bananas were more ripe. But, a must-try snack!

Dutch mini pancakes, known as Poffertjes (pronounced poff-er-jes), are a popular street food snack typically eaten sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar. But Puffcake has elevated this traditional Dutch snack by introducing more flavours such as melted chocolate, Lotus Biscoff, Ovomaltine, Matcha Green Tea and of course, Nutella

So if you find yourself craving something sweet and fluffy, head over to the baby blue food truck for some delicious mini pancakes. We highly recommend the Chocolate (RM7) and the Cookies & Cream (RM8) mini pancakes.
