Madras Lane Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur Overview

Madras Lane is one of the smallest and busiest lanes of Petaling Street, Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur. This street is connected to the Petaling street flea market via a Chinese styled archway. This place is a wet market where groceries, vegetables, freshly slaughtered chicken and fish are available. Madras lane is also known for its hawker centres serving mainly Chinese dishes like Laksa and Yong tau foo.

Madras Lane is a preferred spot for breakfast and lunch and is always jam-packed by locals as well as by tourists. Several stalls in the lane are famous for Laksa and so you can pick the one that is the least busy in case you have any time constraints. Laksa is a mixture of noodles, long beans, eggplants, cockles, deep-fried tofu, and pork rind, served in a spicy broth that’s made with coconut milk and curry. Locals started referring this hawker street as Madras lane after a cinema of the same name, which got demolished in a fire during 1978.
