No trip to KL is complete without at least one trip JL Alor. Flavones are amazing and look for restaurants that charge only slightly more than local prices. Chicken fish, Malaysian chicken curry and grilled sotong (calamari) are some of my favorites.

Lots of local eateries in this stretch of road. Very alive at night and you can find all your favourites there. Not air conditioned so be prepared to sweat as you eat. If you want to experience eating the local ways, this is your place to be.

It is nothing like super deal - but we just loved that all 'tele transport' to India in a couple of minutes! Food, shops, life style, music, the street with all the decoration in Indian style just made us to play around and find some great bargains!

Such a big variety of things to eat here you'll be blown away. But honestly, every restaurant here is good! It's all in a matter of deciding which one you want! Value for money here is good!
