Beggar's Lane

I was in the area a few weeks ago on a work related matter, and an acquaintance suggested we have dinner here. Officially known as Jalan Sayur in Pudu (near Pudu Plaza), I had no idea a gem of a place (the locals call it Wai Sek Kai or Hawker Eat Street) existed. It’s a street that hosts an array of food stalls at night (Coordinates: E101° 42' 47.2" N3° 8' 7.1" ).

I told Cat about the place and she was equally eager to give it a try. We took the LRT and disembarked at the Pudu station. It was a rainy evening and the streets were soggy. After taking in the sights we settled on a stall at the end of the lane which had arranged chairs and tables in front of a shop house (providing relief from the drizzle). 

We found this stall at the end of the lane
We placed our orders and waited patiently
Preparing our meals
Brendan had sweet & sour pork
Cat had hokkien mee
I had fried rice with lap cheong


There are plenty of stalls begging to be explored. We will definitely come back!


UPDATE: We've not been here in a while as we think this place has lost its initial appeal (reasonably priced dishes) and feel that the general pricing of food here is something a beggar can no longer afford.
