Jalan Alor is the eating mecca of Malaysia. A trip to Malaysia will not be complete without a visit to this lively iconic street. Situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, it is here where you get to taste authentic Malaysian cuisine and get a peek into their beautifully diverse and colourful culture. Trying local food is always a priority for me when I travel. I research the best places to eat and make them the highlight of my visit. In my opinion, the best local food are not in the expensive restaurants but in the simple side streets where the hawker stalls are. In Jalan Alor, there is so much to choose from and I seriously think a one time visit is not enough to taste and experience everything. I would suggest visiting Jalan Alor after you shopped at Pavillion Mall in Bukit Bintang. It’s the perfect combination–shopping and street food dining in one day!
As mentioned in my previous post about my trip to Malaysia, I instantly fell in love with this multi-cultural country. Our five day trip was definitely too short! There was just much to explore. I also want to give a shout out to our tour guide and newfound friend Ashraf who made our trip to Malaysia even more special and memorable. She was in charge of touring the Philippine contingent and she did a fantastic job! In fact, it was really nice of her to bring us to her home and meet her family. She also treated us to some lovely roti and teh tarik. Just like Filipinos, Malaysians are hospitable and thoughtful. Thanks again Tourism Malaysia for this wonderful trip!
For a change, you will not see outfit photos below. Instead, I hope I make your mouth water with my Jalan Alor food diary. Feast your eyes on satay, nasi lemak, teh tarik, roti and more. Make sure you include a visit to Jalan Alor the next time you are in Kuala Lumpur!
