If you love pasar ramadhan, then you will love the pasar malam at Jalan Tanjong Tokong (opposite the fishermen’s flats) that is held every Saturday evening. But do go there early, around 4-5pm because things sold out fast.

It is not easy to find parking but still it is worth a trip. The moment you get down from the car, you will be greeted with flaming fires and wonderful aroma of satay sizzling.

There are two kinds of pasar malam or night markets. One is the type that sells more clothings and pirated stuffs and the other is this which sells only foods and more foods.

We usually go there every Saturday for this keropok lekor and my hubby’s favourite tapai manis. Urggh…I can’t understand why people like tapai. It smells like rotten rice. 🙂

But this keropok lekor is good though. The large size one sells for RM2 and normally, I buy it home and slice them thinly and deep fry. The quantity is double those fried and it is good to DIY because my oil is cleaner and we get to eat it while it is still hot.

Pasar Malam is very unique to Malaysia and will be a hit with tourists. But watch that pocket ‘cos the bigger ones like those held in Gurney Drive or Anson Road tend to have pick-pockets mingling in the crowd. Food stalls like these have fixed prices but those selling clothes and pirated stuffs normally hike up their price. So, remember to bargain.
