Jalan Alor is a unique food destination in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The whole character of the city changes when you step onto the street. Gone are the modern shopping malls that align the city, which are replaced with something of the past age. During the day, there is not much activity but when the sun goes down, the street will be hustling and bustling with activity. It was once known as a red light district and remnants of those activities still exist. However, after several face lifts, the street has literally become a food haven.

With a large sign in English that reads ‘Lai Foong Restaurant’ facing the road, you’ll find it hard to miss this decades-old coffee shop. Inside, the hawker-style restaurant consists of a cluster of stalls selling its signature beef noodles (the station is managed by the owner of the place himself), char kuey teow, Penang fried kuok teow and other Chinese favourites. Soong Kee is easy to find – spot the tinted glass door and you’ll find crowds crammed together behind the entrance. The slurping sound is unmistakable; Soong Kee’s beef noodles are indeed, exceptionally toothsome. The fresh beef tripes and tenderloin meat undergirds the soup, which turns out flavourful and refreshing. Beef balls

Housed in a pre-war shop, PS150 snakes around a tiny stationery shop and under the popular coffee shop, Merchant’s Lane to inhibit the least expected of places. The space is divided into three seating areas that bookmark three distinct eras in the history of Indochine and cocktails. Child-like curiosity is rewarded at PS150 as more than meets the eye with the bar’s unassuming entrance. We won’t give much away here, but once through the doorway, intimate booths greet guests at the entrance. This leads up to an airy outdoor terrace that eventually culminates in a dramatic and atmospheric bar in the depths of the shop. Befitting its location, Far Eastern accents liven up the bar as the interior
