What’s Up Petaling Street 2018

Botak Liquor

For the speakeasy vibe

Climb up a rustic spiral stairway and prepare to find yourself in a jungle-esque bar with plants hanging from the ceiling and indistinct chatter. Their drinks come with fruity-floral bases and matches the bar’s atmosphere. It makes for the perfect place to unwind over a cocktail on a lazy evening.

Our recommendations? The Jasmine x Tarragon and the Papaya x Aniseed.

Lim Kee Café

For your caffeine fix

“Take a quick break from the heat and crowd of Petaling Street and pop into Lim Kee Café.

Located on Jalan Sultan, it’s simple, chic and takes a modernised approach to traditional Chinese interiors. The café sells home-made cakes and coffee that will be sure to satisfy both your caffeine and sugar cravings.

Pictured is their classic long black coffee and their Elderflower Lime Cheesecake.

AIR MATA KUCHING

Air Mata Kuching

For a hot day

There’s nothing better than quenching your thirst on a hot day with a classic Air Mata Kuching.

This small stall specializes in Air Mata Kuching and is easily missed amidst the havoc of Jalan Petaling. Keep your eyes peeled, though, as you won’t regret the find.

Kedai Kopi Lai Foong Beef Noodles

For food cooked with love

“While Kedai Kopi Lai Foong seems like an ordinary kopitiam, we’d argue that it’s not. It’s located right on the intersection of Jalan Tun H S Lee, though perhaps the exact address is redundant as you can smell these famous beef noodles from afar.

Lai Foong’s beef noodles are not to be missed. They are filling, flavourful and financially friendly and come cooked with a smile.
