“Sex Street”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

Very disappointing to see hookers / transgenders roaming around freely right under the eyes of authorities...now even foreigners have joined in this trade. They are like mushrooms..almost everywhere approaching customers freely.

“Not a Foodie Paradise anymore..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

This used to be a must go to place for fans of Malaysian food .. but alas commercialism and tourism has caught up and prices are on the way up and quality on the way down. Many of the good restaurants have moved out and been replaced by restaurants all serving the same food. Go elsewhere if you want authentic Malaysian hawker fare.

“Jalan Alor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

A great way to taste Malaysia's food on the street. A wide selection of small hawker style areas and cafes. Just wander up and down before deciding where to eat. Go there a few times to find the place you love. All cuisines are there and it is extremely cheap.
Well worth the visit.

“Fun place to go and eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

Our group had a great meal here, at the Fat Brothers Satay stall. I can especially recommend the Crab Cakes! We got to pick our sticks of skewered food, then it was cooked in front of us - you paid according to what colour the tip of the skewer is. I also had the squid which was just delicious!
