CHOW KIT Market (GOKL Free Bus • Yem Masakan Kampung)

Chow Kit Road!

This video has been a long time in the making. Among the most famous streets in all of Kuala Lumpur, we've been meaning to do a walkabout video for a very long time.

Today is the day, so we left our condo and headed to the Capsquare Bus Stop where we boarded a GOKL Free Bus that took us to the Monorail Chow Kit Bus Stop. We walked across Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah underneath the Monorail Station onto Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

We stopped for a while to get some footage of the DBKL Hawker's Centre where we usually ordered our meals from through the Grab App.

We then continued our walkabout and soon entered the Chow Kit Road Market. We will let the footage paint the words for you!

Taken from the Visit Malaysia website: "Chow Kit has been a reliable place to purchase fruits, spices, meat, vegetables, clothes, shoes and so on. For generations, the Chow Kit is a wet market frequented by many to obtain the freshest ingredients for their household and also for some restaurant owners. This place may not be somewhere visitors may want to visit because it is in fact a wet market but this is the only place where you can try out local foods at a very low price. The market here begins as early at 6am and you can expect to experience lively and culture rich scenes here."

At the end of our Chow Kit Road Market walkabout we decided on an early lunch and after wandering around for a little bit we decided on Yem Masakan Kampung. I had the Spiced Fried Chicken with Rice while Cat tried the Grilled Torpedo Scad (Mackerel) with Rice. Together with a round of drinks our lunch came to RM21.50 (approximately USD5/EUR4).

We then headed back to Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and caught another GOKL Free Bus back to the Globe KL Bus Stop where we walked back to our condo.

We are hoping to wake up early tomorrow morning to experience the Kuala Lumpur Car Free Day that is held every Sunday around our area, so please stay tuned!
