Jalan Alor Food Street Bukit Bintang

Planning a foodie excursion to the most popular food street in Kuala Lumpur?  Jalan Alor is the most popular tourist attraction in Bukit Bintang. The food street is located next to Jalan Changkat and Jalan Ramlee which makes the entire area very popular with tourists as a number of quality restaurants, bars and cafes operate in this area.  

 

What makes Bukit Bintang such a great place to stay?

Bukit Bintang is the major tourist hub in Kuala Lumpur with a large cluster of accommodation catering to all budget types. Ranging from 5-Star Luxury hotels to serviced apartments and budget hostels are located across all the main streets of Bukit Bintang. 

If you plan to stay at a central location and avoid the hassle of using public transport, Bukit Bintang is definitely the place. Besides a large number of restaurants, food courts in the popular shopping malls are also great places to enjoy local food at very affordable prices.


Visiting Jalan Alor Bukit Bintang in July 2022

Jalan Alor has regained its past glory after two years of inactivity during the COVID pandemic. A number of new hotels, restaurants, and cafes have popped up catering to a large influx of tourists from across the world as well as from Malaysia. Exploring Jalan Alor is definitely amongst the top 20 things to do in Kuala Lumpur. 

Jalan Alor is a great place to taste the local flavours of Malay as well as Thai dishes, as Malaysia touches borders with Southern Thailand and the influence of Thai food in Malaysian cuisine is inevitable.

Hot Pots and Steamboats seem to be the main dishes on the menu in most restaurants. A wide range of seafood including crabs, prawns, crayfish, lobster and local varieties of fresh fish is very popular with most visitors. 

I have always enjoyed grilled chicken wings and Satay Chicken with soy sauce served by a very old restaurant at the end of Jalan Alor. I was very happy to find a new refurbished Travelodge Hotel located just across the road from this cafe.

 A number of stalls on the side sell a wide range of seafood on skewers that are served grilled or steamed. Other popular noodle dishes, soups, and stir-fried seafood dishes can be enjoyed with a variety of local Malay & Thai sauces.

The food is priced reasonably and you will most likely find fresh food cooked to perfection. Most restaurants have open sitting areas where the food is served. Watching a large number of tourists while enjoying your food is the way to go in Jalan Alor. 

Don't forget to enjoy a mix of local tropical fruit including mangosteen, jack fruit, and durian. Some stalls also sell pomegranate juice and coconut ice cream.
