Jalan Alor

Running paralel to Bukit Bintang and at a right-angle to Changkat Bukit Bintang,Jalan Alor is one of Kuala Lumpur's more well-known streets.
At nightime it becomes jam-packed with restaurants and food-stalls that overflow onto the pavements.It's a "must-see" on lots of itinerary's and the food's not too bad either.
The cuisine on offer is mainly Chinese food,especially sea-food with a few Thai places further down the road,prices can be a bit "touristy" although each restaurant has it's own menu and price list.If you don't want to pay the prices on Changkat Bukit Bintang,Jalan Alor is a cheaper alternative
If eating outside is not your thing (or it's raining) a lot of the restaurants have indoor dining areas with air con.

Cars double-park on each side of the street so it can be very slow-going for walking and taxis hate it at night but they will drop-you off at either end.
There are also a few hotels along this street offering fairly decent accommodation.
Expect to see a few rats,hopefully at a distance and like most street-food stalls don't think too much about the hygiene....but it's very rare for anyone to get sick from eating here.
