A top breakfast spot in Kuala Lumpur city centre, you are spoilt for choice with the variety of cheap and authentic local fare available in Jalan Imbi Market. Situated on the left side of the market entrance, the courtyard area has plenty of plastic tables and chairs to accommodate large crowds while throngs of hawker stalls sell homemade popiah (spring rolls), egg tarts, kaya puffs, BBQ pork pies, congee, wantan mee, and char kuey teow.

For the most authentic local breakfast experience, head to the iconic Ah WengKoh Hainan Tea stall and order the set of Hainanese coffee, two pieces of toast and two soft-boiled eggs. The toasted buns are filled with sweet kaya (pandan-flavoured coconut jam) and butter while the Hainanese coffee is a smooth blend of coffee and tea with foamy milk. Do note that cutlery is not provided and it can be quite a messy affair, so we highly recommend bringing a packet of tissues with you.

Ann’s Nasi Lemak also draws a large crowd in Jalan Imbi Market as it is one of the rare places in KL that served non-halal nasi lemak. If you’re not obsessed with calorie counting, try the nasi lemak with pork skin curry and pork slices (RM8.80), which comes with coconut-flavoured rice, salted peanuts and anchovies, half a boiled egg, cucumber slices, sambal (spicy shrimp-based sauce) and is topped with piping hot curries.

Jalan Imbi Market is accessible within a five-minute walk from the Imbi monorail station. As stalls are usually open by 06:30 and close between 12:00 and 13:00, we recommend heading there before 09:00 to enjoy breakfast without the hassle of waiting in a long queue.
