Blogs, travel guides, websites, you name it, at one point or another, the popular Jalan Alor food street is bound to come up as you go through the pages looking for something good to try. Even more so, the famous Ayam Panggang (more familiarly known as barbecued chicken (wings)) comes highly recommended by many, so there was no way we could possibly pass up a chance to have a go at this much celebrated hawker treat.
Yet somehow or another, there was a measure of disappointment; or perhaps it was a case of having too high expectations. We've had better in Singapore (the ones at East Coast come to mind) because these were overwhelmingly sweet. Either too much honey or too much sauce. Zaylene did develop a liking for it after a while, so I suppose those who like their barbecued chicken wings sweet would love what Jalan Alor has to offer.
We also ordered some Satay, which to me were actually quite good. Still a bit sweet but not as much as the chicken wings.
The girls wanted some Grilled Stingray, but would have preferred it lathered with lots of sambal chilli instead. Still, I thought the stingray was really fresh and it tasted quite good on its own. If only we had space for more (this was supper mind you), we could definitely have tried out more dishes.
Close to RM50 for all.
