Food street

Food street

A few minutes walk away from our hostel in Kuala Lumpur, there is a Malaysian food extravaganza.

Plastic tables and chairs, food frying in large pans, waiters thrusting menus into tourists hands. This is Jl Alor, better known to the tourist community as “food street”. It came alive well before dusk; a cacophony of smells, sounds and sights, eating at its most authentic.

Food is cheap here. Tourists tucking in. Washed down by beer. Attentive waiters taking your picture. A few drops of rain? Don’t worry we’ll simply put up a parasol before the downpour.

We invited Brian, a young financier from Hong Kong to join us. What an impressive young man. He was off next week to climb Mount Kinabalu in Borneo

Thanks for reading. We'd love to hear your thoughts
