Tuesday: Taman Pertama

One of the highlights of this pasar malam is the vegetable stall that stocks tomatoes and leafy greens from Cameron Highlands.

Wednesday: Taman Connaught

The humming Taman Connaught night market best illustrates our obsession with street food. Perched behind their stalls, vendors offer slap-up versions of fried chicken, curry noodles, char kuey teow, laksa, satay and ABC that will keep you going until midnight. Stay for the stinky tofu – you’ll spot (or smell) it easily by the queue that snakes around the block.

Plaza Mont’Kiara’s courtyard hosts this nifty weekly market where you’ll come across stalls selling trinkets, household knick-knacks and hot Korean food. Don’t forget to stop by California Cookie Company’s stall for the softest, chewiest chocolate chip cookies in KL.
