If food is an integral part of your perfect holiday, if you are curious about local cuisines or if you love exploring a culture through its food, then multiple visits to Jalan Alor is what you have to include in your tour of Kuala Lumpur.
The food lovers paradise
Jalan Alor is a one of a kind food destination located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. As you step onto the busy street, you can sense the change of smell in the air. The modern shopping malls are replaced with hundreds of stalls and small food carts selling all kinds of local dishes. The splash of colors, vendors calling for your attention, music playing from buskers, light smoke and wok-clunking melody coming from stir-frying, barbecue and meat-grilling actions all create an atmosphere completely different from any other part of the city.
A street that starts off calmly during the day transforms into a bustling hub of activity as the sun goes down. It has become a food haven for tourists and locals alike. Offering some of the best culinary delights of Malaysia, the street is filled with dining tables arranged at the centre and rows of hawker stalls on either side of the road. Frequented not only by tourists but locals as well, the stalls offer unique dishes from across the country. A food walk through this vibrant street is one of the top activities in Kuala Lumpur and a travel guide from Locaguide will be a perfect company to help you swim through this sensory overload! Ask your guide for food and restaurant recommendations depending on what you like to eat and he will be able to point you in the right direction.
Bring your appetite on your visit to Jalan Alor. Be it the succulent dumplings, dozens of varieties of noodles, grilled meats or even the local favourite, chicken satay, it’s hard to run out of options at Jalan Alor! Offering not just food but the culture of Malaysia for everyone to experience, this street shows you that diversity does not exist in just the people of Malaysia but in its food culture as well.
