Jalan Alor is the most popular street food markets of Malaysia. The street comes alive in the evening and many small stalls start becoming active with a number of delicacies being prepared and served. Tourists as well as locals love coming here. Most of the hawkers sell Chinese food but other delicacies from South East Asia are also available.

Taman Connaught

Visitors need at-least an hour to explore everything properly. This part of KL has about 700 stalls preparing and serving an array of delicacies. Must not miss items are curry noodles, char kuey teow, laksa, and satay as well as local desserts, ice-cream and snacks.
