KL Summer Adventure: Street Dining at Jalan Alor

Summer time is adventure time...in another country! *wink* Last summer, I joined a friend (and her friends) in their summer adventure in Malaysia and Singapore. We bought a 5D/5N package tour, 3 days in Malaysia and 3 days in Singapore. *wink-wink* :D

We left Manila at around 2:10PM via Cebu Pacific Air and reached Kuala Lumpur at around 6:00PM. Since it was a package tour, airport-hotel transfer was provided so we have a ride to our hotel. During the trip to the hotel, I asked the driver what Malaysian food should we try but he discouraged us and said that Malaysian food is full of fats, we might not like it (our driver looks like an Indian, maybe that's why...hehe!). However, he was kind enough to show us the famous Jalan Alor, which is just walking distance from our hotel.

Jalan Alor - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Jalan Alor is a street in Bukit Bintang area lined up with hawker stalls and restaurants. There are also those food carts like what we have here in the Philippines that offer dimsum and barbecue products. But instead of "isaw" (chicken intestine), "tokneneng" (quail eggs), "adidas" (chicken feet), etc., they have prawns, meats, and different kinds of dimsum on the carts. Fruit  stalls also lined up the street. There's so many restaurants, stalls and food choices here, it's so hard to choose where and what to eat. Anyway, we ended up trying Dragon View Restaurant, one of the Chinese restaurants in Jalan Alor.

Eager to try out a new dish, I ordered fried cockles koey teow. I didn't understand then the restaurant staff when she explained what koey teow is so I also ordered roaster mix chicken rice, a set meal of roasted chicken, pork and another meat (I forgot what it was) with rice and a can of sprite (RM3.50, around PhP46.00, expensive right?) for drinks. My friends, who are afraid of trying out dishes they don't know, also ordered roaster mixed chicken rice. When our orders arrived, I found out that koey teow is a stir-fried flat noodles with cockles, shrimps and bean sprouts (wow, carbo-loading itech...hehe!). It tasted good by the way, and one order could serve 2 - 3 persons (for RM6, around PhP80, it's fair enough).

Fried Cockles Koey Teow - RM6
Roaster Mix Chicken Rice - RM8.50

    1. Di naman nasira tyan ko so I guess malinis naman o siguro matibay lang sikmura ko, hehe! Seriously, ok naman at malinis yun place, ala mga lumilipad-lipad na insekto pero syempre yun mga food carts na open lang eh posible madapuan ng mga dumi-dumi na dala ng hangin. Madami naman choices eh, yun mga iba restaurants freshly cooked naman yun mga foods, so pili ka na lang. :)
