Our romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day was…
I’m not complaining because on this night, the Ship Restaurant we were at the previous night was packed *see the queue?*
Most restaurants would have had a field day on such occasion. If you ask me, I’d rather have an easy-going meal minus the queue and waiting.
In the day, Jalan Alor is a quiet lane with a few indoor coffee shops open for the day-time crowd and by sundown this street transform into a bustling area with no lack of makan!
Once we turned into Alor, vendors were shouting business to us. We glance at the pictures to get a glimpse of menu but not stay too long for them to usher us a seat before anyone can mutter “Table for two”.
If you are there, take a stroll after dinner to Changkat Bukit Bintang. I have no idea when this stretch of hip eateries and bars popped up; my research tells the earliest restaurant here opened in year 1997.
Here feels like Holland Village to me and it’s vastly different from Alor few steps away.
Lining this row of pre-WWII shophouses are watering holes with live bands, irish pubs, comedy club, a nightspot club, various international fare, to name a few.
Ok, now would you excuse me while I tame the grease from dinner, “1 lychee martini for me, please!”
