Jalan Kuantan is a short road off Dato' Keramat Road within the George Town city centre. It was named after the town of Kuantan on the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
Jalan Kuantan was named after the town of Kuantan on the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Kuantan is the capital of the Sultanate of Pahang, one of Malaysia's 13 component states.
Jalan Kuantan was created towards the end of the 19th. century, as George Town was expanding outwards towards the western direction.
An Art Deco-styled market was built along the road in the early 20th. century. Today, the bustling Jalan Kuantan market is packed with shoppers every morning.
Jalan Kuantan is home to a famous curry mee stall. It opens every morning just outside the Timesway Restaurant at the junction between Jalan Kuantan and Dato Keramat Road. Even the current Chief Minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng, patronised the stall once.
The road is also the place to be to try char hor fun, another Chinese noodle dish, in the evenings.
