10. Restoran Sek Yuen
A family-owned old-school Cantonese restaurant in Jalan Pudu, it is still decorated very traditionally. Visitors to Restoran Sek Yuen come for its food that is still cooked on firewood stoves. As a TripAdvisor traveller put it, "Don't expect service and presentation like a modern Chinese restaurant. You are not here to eat the presentation and decoration. You are here for the wonderful food."
