Jalan Alor Food Paradise Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Jalan Alor is a lively street, running parallel to Jalan Bukit Bintang in the heart of the Golden Triangle. It comes alive every night with the sights and smells of hawker cooking and pavement cafÃ©s, the moment you round the corner of Jalan Alor, you will be hit by a hundred different aromas. It’s no surprise then to find that the entire street is lined with coffee shops and restaurants selling mainly Chinese hawker fare. The stalls are parked all along the street. It is quite an overwhelming experience for the first timers, who may have some difficulty on deciding where to eat. Donâ€™t feel intimidated; most of the menus have pictures of each delicacy.
You can find everything from crispy fried pig intestines to satays and spicy marinated grilled stingray. Main courses can be washed down with a large cold beer or some exotic fresh fruit juice (try the sugarcane juice!). If the shopkeeper does not sell the dish or drink ordered, he will often go and purchase it from another stall.
Welcome to Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur food paradise.
Tip: For the best value, sit down at one of the coffee shops (not the restaurants, as these are often overpriced).
