    Portuguese grill stall is a must try here for those who loves spicy meal. Try their stingray and squid.

  • G.S.A

    Come with a lot of energy to walk around, shop and most of all haggle. NO PRICE IS FIXED! You must bargain or they will take advantage of you...

    The favorite spot "air mata kucing" to chill your throat. Definitely here is the origin taste compare others. The owner have to keep existence the traditional steal bowl back to maintain the signature

  • Reezwan G.

    You would most often find the same items cheaper in other parts of KL. Check out Berjaya times Square or masjid James instead. Haggle seriously and without hesitation!

    The market is crowded, chaotic, and frequently overpriced. Some interesting gift shops amid the knock-off stalls and tattoo parlors. Bargain hard. Yummy, affordable food hawkers in the area. Explore!
