Haven’t been shopping or even walking along the streets of Bukit Bintang in KL for the longest time and this time I made it a point with a friend who happened to fly in Kuala Lumpur at the same time from Hong Kong. So we decided to catch up over dinner and while we were wandering around, we saw this place with all the signages…
So we decided to check out this place… how wrong can it go when it’s recommended by 蔡澜, the famous food critic/celebrity from Hong Kong. To our surprise, this is suppose to be a foodcourt where they get the best streetfood in Malaysia and house them there! Check out the pics below, and tell me how not to salivate??!!
Taste: Hokkien Mee is really good. We should have tried the wan ton noodles and beef ball noodles but no stomach space. Bak Kut Teh is good too.
If you’re driving up to Malaysia this weekend despite the hike in the toll fees at the customs, then this is a place you might wanna check out. Just off the Nortth-South Highway, this place is very accessible if you’re driving. This was my first time here as well and if not for my friend’s recommendation, I will not find this place. Check out the pics below and comments.
Taste: Broth was thick and yummy! Love it!
Service: Ok but without smiles…
Ambience: No aircon but quite cooling.
Price: RM$7.00 per bowl. Used to be RM$5.00 not too long ago.
糖水街 means Dessert Street in Chinese and this street has a super long history behind it. When you reach there, there are so many stalls and most of them are duplicates; many similar stalls selling Za Guo Bing (Fruits on Ice), Rojak, noodles, etc. Stalls to avoid are the first few stalls for seafood… you will get chopped ‘cos it’s very expensive. The road is only one way so it’s not hard to know which are the first few stalls. Go towards 3/4 of the road, you will find my favourite rojak, dessert and wan ton noodle stalls.
Rating: 5/5. You can have a very satisfying meal finishing up with lovely desserts. Nice!
Taste: Awesome. Love these authentic local food. I heard the beef noodle stall towards the end of the row is also damn good. But no more stomach space already lah!
Price: Stated on the pics.
RTE: Hell yeah!!!
Location: 糖水街… dunno what road… just tell cab driver. If you’re staying at Excelsior or Syuen Hotel, walking distance about 10 mins. Night time more stalls are open. So go after 7pm.
Was in KL for a night and was recommended this place by a friend in KL. Heard this is a regular joint for supper for most party goers in KL… well at least for the locals.
So my friend drove us to the back part of Jalan Alor, which is the famous street for good street food. The little stall is located along the small road just behind Hotel Nova vicinity. Problem is trying to find a parking but we were lucky.
Taste: Acquired. Some people may not like the cowdung-looking lump on top of the noodles and some may not like the herbal taste of that lump of thing. But it was alright for me and this is totally not found in Singapore.
Portion: Above average.
Price: Relatively cheap. Good supper item. Next time I might choose to stay near Jalan Alor to feature all the food there!
RTE: Yes but there are lots to try there still…
Location: Beginning of Tingkat Tong Shin, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Just behind Corona Inn Hotel)
