Mention Jalan Alor food and Chicken Wings come to mind.
If you are visiting KL (Kuala Lumpur) for the first time, Jalan Alor might be a good bet to start your dinner. It is about 8 min walk from Bukit Bintang Monorail station.
Map. Bukit Bintang station is smack in the heart of happening food and shopping zone.

Boon Yee’s own restaurant, we are curious about the huge jar’s content 🙂
Sugarcane, coconut, KL is hot, replenish your water. We packet some fried chicken home for supper.
Jalan Alor is really packed every evening. Spotted a lot of tourists. We recommend families to reach around 5.30pm to have an early dinner. It will be more difficult to find a seating place after 6.30pm.
Busy street with lanterns above, and handicapped folks singing a tune or two.
Restoran Wong Ah Wah or WAW (with Mickey mouse lookalike emblem) is at the end of the street. WAW consists of 5 stalls!
And it all started with Wong Ah Wah (maybe KL’s most famous) chicken wings. According to a Taiwan TV variety, 5000 wings are sold every night!
Surprisingly, our kids prefer the non-spicy stingray more than the chicken wings.
Roasted Pork noodle. It got too sinful after the 5th mouth :p
Try it for the novelty, but you must not count the lard calories.
Calamari is recommended.
At WAW, you can sit at any of the 5 stalls, we believe the menus are offering the same food. Our total damage came up to RM140.
Price is considered cheap compared to Singapore, but Jalan Alor is meant for tourists and the price here is slightly higher. What it offers is a one stop convenience to savour all the good food. Yummy experience!
Before we head back, we thought we should try some durians. Bad choice, we chose a watery durian which sucks. Should have spent more to buy Mao Shan Wang, but there are better place to try durians.
We bid Jalan Alor good night, but crowds are still streaming in.
Additional tips :
– GPS N03.14468, E101.71374
– Opening hours of Jalan Alor food street seems to be 24 hours (cannot confirm)
– Due to the crowd, we felt relatively safe walking along Jalan Alor
– Hold on to the little ones, as cars can still drive slowly along the street
– More food photos can be found on our KL Day 2 photo album
