Jalan Alor is viewed as a place to avoid by local Malays. When I told my Malay colleagues that I went to Jalan Alor they were sort of shocked (the image of Jalan Alor seems to be a red light district in the past-now not anymore). But in reality this street is pretty cool. Lots of food mostly Chinese Malay... More

This place is very popular and hence very congested in terms of traffic and getting seating. My wife and I have eaten at the restaurant called "Wong Ah Wah" in Jalan Alor. Plenty of variety of food (including satay) at reasonable prices.

Great food in the evenings but very touristy. A bit expensive for hawker food but what the heck, we are on holiday and it's definitely cheaper then the hotel.

We thought this would be an awesome night market food experience, however it was mainly just shops who had people out on the street harassing you to come into their stores.

Wow what an amazing street! You must visit this street at night to soak up the atmosphere, sitting on the street and watching the passing parade while enjoying the endless choice of food from the many stalls.

Being a 'local' who haven't been back, it was an eye opener that Jalan Alor has become this very popular tourist spot. The food was good but I feel a tad expensive by local standards but cheap to us earning foreign currency. So if you want a sampling of local food and atmosphere, this is it! There were a lot...

Food market galore, so much food and variety, Chinese, Indian, Malay mostly, some BBQ-style! Definitely must visit if you want to eat like a local, probably even meet some friendly locals. It has a great vibe, somewhere fun to go. Better to go with a group of people, easier to eat more that way. Just a few steps away is... More
