Jalan Alor Food Paradise Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Posted by on May 5th, 2007
Filed Under: Food, Kuala Lumpur

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 cafés, 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. Don’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).

  1. Subject : Why must your KL City Hall change Famous & Popular Jalan Alor Name ?

    Why must your Kuala Lumpur City Hall change the famous Jalan Alor street name in Bukit Bintang District in KL ? It is well-known and popular Locally and Internationally, over the years. Do you want to confuse your International Tourists and upset your local Residents, Traders, or visitors from other towns, places and states in Malaysia ?
    The unnessary costs of changing ,anxiaties, tensions, commotion, reaction,etc………..
    We wonder don’t your City Hall Officials have other more important or better things to do ?

    Very silly indeed……………………………..
