"Food Haven in KL: Chinatown" Chinatown - Petaling Street Tip by xuessium

Chinatown - Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur: 105 reviews and 157 photos

by xuessium

Folks come here to feel the open air vibes of KL and good old food glorious food. Packed with diners offering an explosion of Chinese dishes - you can choose to eat in the restaurants or among the many street stalls, all al fresco dining. There is also a flea market going on at night selling heaps of trash..and for folks who loves fake coutures, this is one place to get your bargains.

Look for a street stall tucked in one corner selling "Air Mata Kuching" cold sweet herbal drink (MYR1 for one cup) - made from dried longan, momordaceae fruit and winter melon - it's a great drink to wash down the heat! Just look for the queue!

Directions: Nearest MRT: Pasar Seni. 5 minutes walk from there.
