Madras Lane Petaling Street

Traditional Hawker Street in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur

Madras Lane Petaling Street is a narrow alleyway that’s known for its tasty hawker fare, as well as a wet market that sells a variety of produce, meat, poultry and fish. Set within Chinatown Kuala Lumpur, it’s connected to the Petaling Street Flea Market via a Chinese-style archway bearing the name Penjaja Gallery. Locals frequently refer to the hawker street as Madras Lane after a cinema of the same name, which was destroyed in a fire during the late 1970s.

The wet market gets very busy with locals shopping for groceries, vegetables and meat – live chicken and fish are freshly slaughtered here, so it can be upsetting for those with a weak stomach. When you reached the end of the lane, you’ll find the food court, which is fitted with food stalls as well as a limited number of plastic tables and chairs.

What to Eat in Madras Lane Petaling Street

The food at Madras Lane Petaling Street is predominantly Chinese, with curry laksa and yong tau foo being the most popular options among local diners. The former is a mix of noodles, long beans, eggplants, cockles, deep-fried tofu and pork rind, served in a spicy broth that’s made with coconut milk and curry.

There are several stalls selling assam laksa (Nyonya noodles in spicy and tangy fish soup), so we suggest picking the one that’s busiest if you’re not pressed for time. A standard-sized dish plus drink at Madras Lane Petaling Street should cost no more than RM10. As Madras Lane Petaling Street is one of the most popular (and inexpensive) breakfast spots in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur, be sure to get there early to avoid a long wait.
