Alright, priorities to be addressed before reading this article are done.
Moving on! My four best tips to getting kefir in Kuala Lumpur 🙂
Tip #1: Premium supermarkets
I would say, if you’re more of an old fashion shopper, and would like to hold the product in your hand, feel out the crevices, before you fork our your money for it, I’m happy to say, that recently, supermarkets around KL are starting to stock kefir.
Not that many at the moment, because kefir is not exactly steeped in Malaysian culture, but a handful of health food stores around KL stock it.
One that I know of is Qra, located in Mont Kiara, TTDI and KL City Centre. If you know more, feel free to comment below!
Tip #2: Online websites
Fortunately, we can get our daily fix of kefir in Kuala Lumpur, the more digital way: online.
There has been a mushrooming of kefir online shops which is great! One of which is ours of course: The Kefir King, where you can order fresh milk and water kefir to be delivered to your doorstep (yes, oozing with convenience).
Besides us, you can find a range of other kefir online websites like My Kefir World, and Kefir and Kombucha Malaysia.
Find Best Kefir in Kuala Lumpur Tip #3: Cafes and Restaurants
Moving on, because probiotics are gaining traction, and kefir is getting more popular, you will be able to find many cafes and restaurants in Kuala Lumpur proffering kefir in their beverage menu.
So that would be a really convenient way to get your probiotic intake up while grabbing lunch or having dinner with friends.
It would be a little pricier than buying it directly from the store, but hey, convenience is sometimes worth its price!

If you’re a DIY-er, and like making things from scratch, milk kefir grains are also available in Kuala Lumpur for those who prefer to make their own kefir at home.
These grains, which are used to ferment milk, can be found online. You’ll be able to find them with a simple Google search. They are also sold on Shopee and Lazada.
We ALSO sell them by the way, if you’re looking to buy some 😀 You can make kefir at home indefinitely once you have the grains.
We will write and link an article soon on what to consider when buying milk and water kefir grains to help you be more selective of your kefir grains before purchasing.
