Don't miss this.........noise, bedlam, frenzy, excitement, all in the name offering really high quality food and drink at exceptionally low prices. Go on, give it a go, you'll surely see something on a plate that you have never, ever seen before in your life

Coconut ice cream was divine & the best satay at Wong Ah Wah, which is located at the very end. A lively & busy street.

Jalan Alor is a road by day and at night turns into lots of street restaurants. They still let one lane of traffic down the street but cars are travelling slow. Just plastic chairs everywhere but food is fabulous and cheap. A huge meal with beer cost us about $15 per head. Try the chicken fish!

This place is definitely just for tourists. Prices are about 20% higher and the food quality is about 50% worse! Something I noticed if you do want to save some money, each area has it's own specialty. The carts you see behind the tables is what that area makes. They will show you a menu with all of the different... More

A lively bustling street packed with busy restaurants - no frills - plastic tables and chairs but the food is freshly prepared and tasty - we had two meals and 2 bottled beers and it cost less than £5.00. Great Atmosphere.

Go around before finally seating down. Food served are essentially the same in most stalls so pick the one with the most people... it's probably the best!

What a great street for food , plenty of choices - perhaps avoid the shops at the top end of the street and try the ones in the middle on the left if you are walking down the slight hill and another tip always eat at the busiest restaurants we ate there twice and had great meals at very cheap...

Since I am a local, I always bring our foreign friends to visit Jalan Alor. This is a place for food paradise, which served all the foods in hawker style. It is best recommended to come with someone local then you could get a reasonable price. You no need to crack your head what to eat, because everything is so... More

Love the fact that you are able to eat, drink and be entertained along the whole street without bursting your budget.... People normally tell me, eat dinner like a beggar... but in Jalan Alor, it is SO HARD to do so. Variety of food to eat, lots of seafood to choose from that you would not know where to start.... More
