If you have no idea where to start, don’t worry, you will probably want to do a lap down then back up the street first to experience the sights and aromas of all the different stalls and restaurants and what they offer. You can pick a restaurant that offers indoor and outdoor seating, or pick multiple small bites as you wander between the various stalls.
Jalan Alor is filled to the brim with tasty Asian cuisine including Thai Food, Chinese food and Vietnamese food and everything in between. There’s plenty of options for even the pickiest eater. The restaurants and food stalls catch your attention with colourful signboards, displays of freshly barbequed meat and vegetable skewers, colourful dim sum, ice-cream stalls, and fresh juices.
