Lorong Selamat

Old townhouses along Lorong Selamat, George Town (29 September, 2012)

Lorong Selamat (Chinese: 平安巷) is one of the minor roads that run between Burmah Road and Macalister Road. It is famous for the coffee shop (Kedai Kopi Low Eng Hoo) selling street food such as Char Koay Teow (now in its own coffee shop), and turning Lorong Selamat into another George Town street food precinct.

Once a mainly residential avenue, Lorong Selamat has over the past few decades seen an increase in commercial activities, as some of the townhouses along the road are converted into shops and offices. There are also a number of coffee shops and restaurants opening in the area, turning Lorong Selamat into a street-food haven.
