EatAlley: 7 Famous KL Eateries At This New Orchard Gateway Food Court

24th July 2023

EatAlley opens at Orchard Gateway with KL-famous stalls


If you’re a fan of Malaysian food, chances are that EatAlley in Orchard Gateway will be right up your alley. This newly opened food court features seven well-known eateries from Kuala Lumpur that offer the best of the city’s hawker fare, including wonton noodles, Klang-style bak kut teh, and braised duck.


Those who frequently make trips to KL may be familiar with Koon Kee Wan Tan Mee, a popular wonton mee stall in the city that has been around since the 1940s. They’re also one of the most popular stalls at EatAlley!

Their Duo Combo Wanton Noodle ($10.80), which comes with char siew, chicken feet, and braised mushrooms, is worth the splurge. As you’d expect from good Malaysian-style wonton mee, their egg noodles are coated with dark sauce. Based on our experience, the char siew is also deliciously smoky, juicy, and sweet, with just the right fat-to-meat ratio.


Another stall to look forward to is Siong Huat Bah Kut Teh. This acclaimed eatery serves Klang-style bak kut teh—that means the herbal version of the dish, instead of the more peppery one most Singaporeans are used to. Fans of the stall often praise the aromatic and flavourful broth, as well as the succulent ribs. On top of their herbal soup, we also enjoyed the Dry Bah Kut Teh ($10.80), best paired with a bowl of Shallot Rice ($1).


Kam Heong Braised Duck is another big name that’ll be at EatAlley. Order the Kam Heong Signature Set ($9.80), which comprises old-school braised duck, braised egg, salted vegetables, and butter rice. The duck slices are tender and juicy, complemented by a light briasing sauce that goes well with the fragrant rice.


If you love nasi lemak as much as we do, don’t leave without trying Kampung Nasi Lemak. The popular, no-name roadside stall in KL is run by a 37-year-old Malaysian founder nicknamed Fatty, who has moved to Singapore to oversee the operations here. The Nasi Lemak with Ayam Rempah ($8.80) stars a whole deep-fried chicken thigh paired with a generous mount of freshly cooked coconut rice. You can add on toppings such as fried egg ($1.50) and sambal cockles ($3), too!

Uncle Beh Pork Noodle‘s Signature Pork Noodle Combo ($10.80) is a must-order if you’re into heavier flavours. This gets you a big bowl of rich and hearty broth that has been cooked with pork bones for many hours, alongside a medley of sliced pork, liver, intestines and more.


Definitely opt for the dry version that includes a bowl of mee tai mak tossed in a rich dark sauce and lard mix that’s sweet, savoury, and greasy in the best way possible.

While you’re there, drop by Hong Lai Hokkien Mee, known as Kedai Kopi Dan Makanan Hong Lai in KL, for their KL Hokkien Mee ($9.80) and Moonlight Kway Teow ($9.80). There’s also Soong Kee Beef Noodle, a legendary stall that has been around since 1945.


End things on a sweet note with a bowl of Chendol ($3.50) over at the drinks and desserts stall. This refreshing dessert made for the perfect end to our indulgent Malaysian feast at EatAlley.


The food court sits around 150 people, but the space quickly gets packed during peak meal times. It sports a modern and elegant look with its green and gold aesthetic: think marbled tables, rattan chairs, and hanging pendant lights.
