Street food

Lively atmosphere and lots of varieties, must try. Plenty of seafood to choose from... beware of traffic as the street is quite busy

This place has raw energy you wont find in any western cities. Filled with food carts and restaurants. Too many choices and they all seem delicious. My suggestion is to do a single walk around and then set your mind to the closest one. Do not spend too much time on looking else you will get confused. Loved the piking... More

don't do it, full of dirty street hustlers selling rotten food packaged to look good. The Chinese are really bringing Malaysia down its a shame, this area stinks and is very overcrowded no place for children.

First and foremost I don't mind street food, I will try anything once but this place did not inspire confidence with regards to me not getting sick. There were open drains in places, the road was in disrepair in others and food was sitting out in the hot sun unprotected. In other shops like a butcher meat was piled on... More

Fat brother satay and WAW is our favourite, for fat brother they sell various satay, the mushroom and eggplant really delicious with the sauce. For WAW the chicken wings and the kam heong lala is...
