Jalan Alor: KL street food paradise

A trip to KL isn't complete until you've enjoyed some delicious street food

By Asia City Staff | Aug 04, 2014

Malaysia and KL are justifiably famous for the amazing food on offer, and while the city boasts numerous amazing restaurants it’s also true that some of the very best treats can be found on the streets.

Those wanting to sample simple but delicious Malay street-side dishes should make a beeline for the centrally located Jalan Alor (a five-minute walk from Bukit Bintang Station). The former red light district is now a foodie paradise after dark when it fills up with rows and rows of stalls and open-air, street-side restaurants.

Classic dishes well worth hunting out range from roti and satay to nasi lemak and Haianese chicken rice, perfectly representing the three central cuisines of KL: Malay, Chinese and Indian.
