2. Sample Malaysian street food at JALAN ALOR
Talk to anyone who’s ever been to Malaysia, and they’ll tell you that Malaysian cuisine is a melting pot of flavors to savor. Parade your taste buds down Jalan Alor to get a feel for KL’s most notorious comfort foods. When you’ve become an expert, we recommend a get-together at Manja, where you can experience home-cooked favorites fused with a touch of class. Devour local river lobster for your main course, and for dessert, opt for a slice of cheesecake with kaya (coconut) jam!
