If you are first time in Asia, you might hesitate to eat in this small smelly street with full of local street foods in small small restaurants due to the hygenic concerns. However it's worth to taste as Malaysia has one of the most tasty cuisine in the world. You can also taste tropical fresh juices and seafood there.

Our first destination is the famous Jalan Alor(Food Street), which is just a street behind the hotel we stayed in. At night, we go there to eat our dinner. There's actually a lot to choose from - varying from local dishes to thai, vietnamese, indian and chinese cuisine. It's more convenient to eat there at night because it's way too... More

I would say that this is a nice place to go to if you are visiting KL. For locals, we normally do not go to this place as it is usually very crowded with tourists. The food - there is a wide variety to choose from so for tourists, they can get to sample many different kinds. But we locals... More

We were looking forwards to the hawkers market here and again it delivered, good food, served quickly, friendly staff, good choices. Satay and deep fried squid very good, also the special rice. Found a chestnut seller, 10RM for a good bag full.

We arrived in KL (and at Jalan Alor) early on a Sunday morning - and had to wonder what all the fuss was about. You see nothing opens before 10 - we didnt really know what day it was - much less the time, having bndled ourselves onto a plane the night before, on a much anticipated and long awaited... More

Food was very expensive. Oyster egg at RM25. Grill fish, a very very small portion at RM35. Satay at RM1 per stick. No enforcement to check on the prices there. Stalls all manned by foreigners. Cooking also by foreigners. It diminishes the beauty of Malaysian Cooking Taste. What a pity. Btw, down the road - coconut ice cream at RM10.40.... More
