There are better, cleaner (and still cheap) local restos even in city centre, usually on smaller streets,

Very busy street with lots of choices. But very commercialised and pricey. Food is so-so. Unless you try WAW Restaurant which is perhaps patronised by more locals.

Jalan Alor, for years was among the cheap eat streets of Kuala Lumpur, just that in these days the prices went up, but the atmosphere of this beehive of excellent street food has never changed. Jalan Alor, just across the road from BB Plaza and near Changkat Bukit Bintang, is a stretch of road that in the evening till the... More

We were staying nearby, so we dropped in one evening for a taste of local Malaysian cuisine. Had a plate of satay with peanut sauce. Looked like an Indian Kebab but was not that spicy. The plate was decently priced or so we thought because when we had a word with a local malay the next day, he said the... More

Expect to spend a little a lot. If you are not willing to merge into the scene and try different stuff. Then don't bother. This is not a place for the faint hearted

We ate at a very local series of food stalls behind our hotel (Parkroyal in Bukit Bintang, on the carpark side) 2 nights ago. That food was OUSTANDING. In comparison, our meals at Jalan Alor last night did not score well at all. Maybe 2/10 for taste and appearance, at twice the price of the night before. Jalan Alor seems... More

Stayed at the ultra modern and 5 star Istana Hotel, swam in the rooftop pool, etc but every night couldn't wait to get to Jalan ALor and try out the wonderful street food. Watch what others are eating and go eat the same. A fish the size of my arm in a tamarind sauce one night, veggie curry the next.... More
