Food and restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

Top restaurants

Thai Restaurant
“Called the cultural heart of the city’s local cuisine, Jalan Alor is one of the most famous roads in Kuala Lumpur for food. Located just behind Jalan Bukit Bintang, it is basically a strip of atmospheric air-conditioned Chinese seafood restaurants, with a row of hawker stalls set up on the five-foot walkway on both sides and plastic tables and chairs spilling out onto the road.    The food and ambiance is its main draw, with vendors furiously fanning grills of chicken and beef skewers, the metallic clang of frying woks and the air thick with charcoal smoke. The variety of food available is amazing with barbecued meats, noodles and desserts recognised as some of the best (and cheapest) in the city. Most of these dishes cannot be found in fashion-conscious restaurants making these hawkers a favourite on the city’s foodie scene. Most have picture menus, making ordering an easy affair. Read More... Opening Hours: 17:00 - late Address: Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur (behind Jalan Bukit Bintang) ”
