A Street of Gastronomic Delight : Jalan Alor

Welcome to the blogosphere ameyga! Hooray to a job well done. So proud of you 🙂

The Lifeaholics


Jalan Alor is the eating mecca of Malaysia.  As self-confessed foodies, we dare not leave Malaysia without exploring their legendary eat street. It was an unwritten law that we both held deep in our tummies : A happy trip is never complete without trying out a local’s delectable cuisine. After all, food is our common ground. It is a universal experience.
