JALAN ALOR FOOD STREET, KUALA LUMPUR
Jalan Alor is a unique food destination in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The whole character of the city changes when you step onto the street. Gone are the modern shopping malls that align the city, which are replaced with something of the past age. During the day, there is not much activity but when the sun goes down, the street will be hustling and bustling with activity.
Some of the best culinary delights that Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia has on offer are also the restaurants right at the sidewalks, in the rows and rows of hawker stalls. On Jalan Alor, these stalls are visited by the locals, foreigners, tourists, and also by the celebrity chefs from the entire world to get an inspiration for their award winning menus.
The best advice for people who wish to visit Jalan Alor is to bring their appetite. There are plenty to choose from here and someone is not able to try everything in a single trip. The diversity of the population in Malaysia is reflected into the cooking diversity at Jalan Alor.
While most of the menus are in Chinese characters, there are many who also provide English translation in order to cater to tourists from around the globe and a growing number of locals who are not Chinese-educated.
Jalan Alor is synonymous for good food and traditional atmosphere of „old times“, a place where everybody will eat with a passion for prices more than favorable. Very interesting experience.
Jalan Alor is located withing the Bukit Bintang area, a walking distance from many 5star hotels. A Bukit Bintang MRT station is just about 5 minutes to walk.
