This place is exactly where you want to go to experience the atmosphere and food KL is famous for. Cheap, delicious food, packed with people, and close to Chungkat Bukit Bintang for some nightlife after eating :)

This is a very busy and crowded street with lots of food options. Prices are overall cheap. Try the char kwey teow, the fried oyster omelet, the satays and the fresh durian!

The food is VERY reasonably priced however please make sure that you check the menu for prices. Some dishes could be a bit more expensive that the others. Don't forget... More

Jalan Alor is one of the famous place in KL. When we visited this street during the night, it is very crowded. You will see a lot of food stall there, most of them are a chinese food. Try to come to this street during your trip.
