Since Ah Ing & I was staying in Cube Hotel along Jalan Pudu, we did a last minutes work googling places to eat around Bukit Bintang & Jalan Pudu last night coz we didn't want to ended up in touristy food outlets. We looking for something local, and traditional. The older the place is, the better. Found a few blogs on Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang.This This This This This & many more.... It was convincing enough...
Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang is a wet market with hawker stalls that are famous among the local in the heart of KL. The reason why it is located at Jalan Melati in Imbi Area but is known as Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang is because previously this wet market was located near Lot 10. Some of the famous food here are the Hainan Tea, Hainan Toast, Egg Tart, Apam Balik, Sisters Crispy Popiah, porridge and so many other varieties. We hop on a taxi from Jalan Pudu that only costs RM3.40 to go to the Market & found our way on foot (15 minutes) to Sungei Wang after a satifying brunch. Really a Lucky Sunday!
Some photos to seduce & harras your appetite... haha

The People who Enjoyed the Brunch...
|.:Munching on the Apam Balik, counting money & at the same time wanted to eat the noodle:.|
|.:Finishing the noodle!:.|
|.:Ing Happy with her food:.|
|.:(Candid shot by Ing) After the satisfying over-eating brunch session with Ing, strolled to Sungei Wang and complaint my stomach bloated:.|
We didn't get to try the egg tart and the Pork Leg Noodle coz we were too full and for two persons to eat everything in one morning is ridiculous. One thing for sure was Ah Weng Koh's uncle waiter complaint the two of us eat too much when we ordered another toast. We felt he's just annoyed coz we hogged the table and many were standing & waited for us to finish our food. hehehe. It is also advisable to go early if you do not want to dine under the heat of colourful big umbrellas.
Definitely, we'll be going back there if I have some free time in KL again...
