  • Stayed at a hotel close to Chulia St where all the action is. There are shops, restaurants and street food carts to choose from. Great place! 
  • Hawker stalls near Lorong Cheapside after sunset is highlighted. Curry mee and wan tan wee are the best. The food taste is excellent however hygiene is so so. To find a table to eat is tricky for indo...  read more »
  • We can say that it is the reason for visiting the city. It is the main artery to speak in any way, so I think you need to take it as a reference and not only take it in itself, but also their crossings and nearby. It is a zone of accommodation for backpackers, while it has a varied gastronomic offer.

  • The char keow teow is not so great but the lor bak, popiah and wantan mee is superb.
  • Forget about ambient. Go for the nice curry mee, wan tan mee, fried kueh teow with duck egg, poppiah and fruit juice. Yummy
  • Why am I rating it so badly when the curry mee there is fantastic? The fruit juice sellers there are terrible. They are extremely rude and yell at you for sitting at their tables without buying a drink from them. There are no signs indicating this rule, but instead of explaining this they yell at you to leave. I watched other tourists get yelled at as well. So to avoid getting yelled at by the impolite juice hawkers, make sure you don't sit at a table with a sticker with a random ad on them. (The ads aren't even for the juice hawkers)
  • Some deals here. Others can be a rip off. Lots of small plates which is fun, but paying 5MYR per-plate can be expensive when it's tiny. Make sure you check out what you're getting first. The drinks especially can be exorbitant prices per-glass.
  • While famous for curry and wanton mee, we fell in love with the curry mee. RM3.50 per bowl is well-worth it.
