I was in Alor Setar, a quite town in the state of Kedah, for an assignment a few months back. I was bunked at the Grand Alora hotel for a night and being a foodie, I wanted to savor what’s popular among the locals.
I checked with the hotel staff and they pointed me to this stall that’s just a stone’s throw away from the hotel entrance – while that may be a figure of speech, I assure you that stall is really a stone’s throw away.
OK so there it was, a pretty decent selection of food available. It was quite late by the time I head there, somewhere around 10PM but much to my surprise food still tastes good. Maybe I’m hungry but I digress.
And so I took whatever I could come across – rice, eggs, fried chicken, paru paru and whatever else. That’s quite many stuff and over in bigger cities, would easily run across the RM 10 mark but what I took barely came close to RM 10.
If ever you’re in Alor Setar and looking for some “makan” at night, you can try out Yus. They begin operation early evening and close around midnight.
Grand Alora hotel might not be familiar to everyone so you can ask around for Tesco – the hotel is just opposite Tesco and Yus’ stall is easily noticed.
