This Jalan is full of food stalls and becomes colourfull during the night. I believe this part doesn't sleep. The chairs and tables take most of the road and you will find couple of singers belting out some classics. Try the Chinese dishes at the top of the road stall.

not sure if we got the bad deal, but unlike other street food havens, this one wasn't any cheap stuff at all. We felt that it was as expensive as a mid-range restaurant and that hindered us exploring more options here. the food was good overall, do try the seafood stuff and the malaysian delicacies. even fruits/juices were nice. you...

I was advised to visit Jalan Alor on my flight from the UK by a gentleman who now resides in Borneo; it took some finding even though I had a map, eventually I took a taxi, monsoon downpour about me I was in Jalan Alor. I was not disappointed, amazing experience, probably best to keep Gordon Ramsey away, but for... More

Most nights we eat at Yans restaurant. We love to sit and people watch. The people walking around selling items especially laser lights and the fake monks are very annoying. But don't say anything, just wave them away. Walking down the street is a good way to spend some time and soak up the atmosphere. Lots of food stalls, with... More

Only a short walk from Bukit Bintang monorail station. Most of the restaurants seem well patronised so it's not easy to make a choice.

Day time seems quiet at this street but when night falls, the street is packed with people with different restaurants offering different kind of food from Satay to grill fish. This street is so famous with foreigners who either are tourist or foreign or local people who works close by. I grew up in Malaysia and has tasted food at... More

It was said that if you have never been to Jalan Alor, you have never been to KL. Well, maybe it is exagerated but I do think that it is great just for the experience if you are a tourist. Where else do you find all types of street food within short walking distance to the club scene. Beware it... More
