Food Trip: Jalan Alor, KL, Malaysia

7:00:00 PM

One thing you should not miss when you are in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the famous street, Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang!


It is famous for being a street that sells a variety of food! Street food indeed! From satay, seafood, Chinese food, Vietnamese food, fruits, and desserts. A place where you need to prepare your stomach to handle binge eating.

In this blog, we will give you some simple tips to enjoy your time and food. I am not sure if you have known, but as a street food area with tables and chairs everywhere you would surely end up confused on where to sit and where to eat.

Tip #1
You should arrive in the street before the sun sets. We went there around 6pm. Their sunset is the same as their neighboring country, Singapore. Albeit, an hour earlier.
 

Tip #2
Walk from one end of the street to the other end. This is to see and check on the food you would want to eat. Wander around, not for too long though, check some prices if you can.


Click on the image and open link in tab to zoom in.

Tip #3
Find a spot nearest to the place where you want to eat or find the person you would prefer to be served. That person will find a table for you, give you a menu and suggestions.

Tip #4
If you have a tight budget, don't give in to the server's suggestions. Choose wisely. Check whether you are buying a small, medium, or large serving. Be smart, be wise, and check the details. The menus are quite big and thick, so there were no good photos of it.


Tip #5
Wait for the food to be served and enjoy when it arrives. We had some chicken, mi goreng, satay, and lohmi. 
This was so juicy and tender and the sauce was such a great complement.

That blurry part near the chopstick is the steam. When we tried stirring the noodle, steam kept leaking from it. It was hot and so good!
Satay! A finely grilled chicken with peanut butter sauce. Although I wanted the sauce to be more spicy and more nutty flavor.
 


The Lohmi in a quite a big bowl. It was a small portion though but it was so difficult to finish. Since it was in one big bowl, the heat was just confined inside and when it gets cold, it doesn't taste as nice. I still liked it but it was such a filler after all that we had eaten.

    Tip #6
If you want a dessert somewhere else, keep a space on your stomach. Don't order too much.

They prepare your ice cream in a coconut shell...
...and you get to choose your  toppings!
   
Open the photos in a new tab to see the photos up close and the details.

The experience is just as simple as that. An exciting experience since you would notice some servers would try to steal you - customers, from other servers. It's very wild in that sense and they still keep their service good and on time. More people would start coming in when the sun has set, so it gets really busy.

The total spending that we had was RM 63 including the dessert - ice cream. The dessert costed RM10. As for the dinner, we had a medium portion of roasted chicken, small satay, small mi goreng, and small lohmi and 2 cans of Coke.

Just keep calm, order, eat, take your time, and pay.



Thank you for reading! Please anticipate for the next food or travel adventure!
