Certainly the place to go for the "buzz" especially at night time and so many restaurants to choose from for great local food.

The Kuay Teow is a flat rice noodle which is so delicious, they just dont do it in Australia like they do in Malaysia. the extreme night food markets are fantastic! so many different smells and the prices are fantastic too! must try the green beans with minced prawns, its spicy and delicious!

Food stalls on both sides with cars moving through the middle of the busy street. The must try food is definitely the bbq stands.

Every dish we had, the stingray, chicken and vegetable dishes were just so delicious and prices very reasonable!

It seemed like the whole street was turned into a huge food market and was just around the corner form Bukit Bintang so great for authentic dining after shopping or the other way around! You'll be approaced by people trying to seat you as soon as you draw close and if they're busy, as they were when we arrived, you might be invited to shar a table with others but that just adds to the fun! This will certainly be one of my favourite eating places in KL now!

We stayed at the Park Royal Suites which was a stone throw away from Jalan Alor. We had dinner here most nights - its cheap, loads of options and it has a great atmosphere.
As soon as you walk down Jalan Alor you'll be 'invited' in my a number of vendors to eat on their tables. Each eatery runs slightly differently to others. There are ones where you eat and pay the bill at the end. Or others where you order what you'd like and as they bring out your dish you'll have to pay for them. Food wise its fantastic - if you're accustomed to Asian food and know what you like - there's plenty to choose from. Otherwise their menus (with pictures) are easy enough for anyone to get what they want. Beer and fresh juice are available as well as local fruit stalls. If street food isn't your thing but you'd still like a taste of it head to Pavilion shopping centre - Food Republic (food court) is your next best option
