NileGuide Expert tip:
Wong Ah Wah's Famous Chicken Wings on Jalan Alor are reputed to be the city's best.
Jalan Alor, the street parallel to Jalan Bukit Bintang, is flanked by coffee shops and restaurants, interspersed with hawker stands selling fruits and barbecued meats on either side of the street. This strip transforms at night when little lanterns light up the sky and plastic tables and chairs spill out onto the pavement. Jalan Alor has plenty of character –buzzing with the sound of woks being stirred and the yell of orders from customers. Chefs cater to a wide range of requests from the regular grilled sting ray, oh-chien (oyster omelet), satay, rojak (tropical fruits mixed with savory peanut sauce), Hokkien fried noodles and barbeque chicken wings, to the more exotic frog porridge and crispy fried pig intestines. It can be quite overwhelming for the first time traveler when you're deciding what to eat. Don't fret as most places carry a menu in English, complete with pictures of the dishes served.
