Taman Puteri Wangsa Night Market

Stretching along Jalan Badik 16, 17, 18 and 20, Taman Puteri Wangsa night market (pasar malam) which opens every Friday, offers a variety of food options that made our trip down worthwhile.

There are 3 mobile vendors selling carrot cake and we are happy to spot two of our favourite here. The couple pair from KSL pasar malam and mother & son pair from TUTA pasar malam.

Come with an empty stomach and you can take your pick to fill your tummies - Satay, Penang Laksa, Chendol, assorted kueh, fried food, pancakes, roasted meat and more!

Apart from the cooked food, there are vegetables, chicken, fish and fruits where local residents like to drop by to do their marketing.It is just like a mini wet market.

Since it is the Dumpling Festival and Durian season (June - July). There are many stalls selling dumplings, lychee and durians. It is an extra treat for us at the pasar malam.

With so many mobile vendor selling durians, Hubby decided to go for the one with the largest crowd and buyers. This durians looked pretty good and the uncle skillfully opened up the fruit and packed the meaty durians into boxes.

Durians are weighed for the price.

We bought 2 back to try and it costs about rm27. 

We arrived a little too late (about 7pm) to buy our favourite packet of carrot cake. The popular stalls close their business early within 2 hours! Roads are cordoned off at around 5pm in the evening, hence do arrive early to avoid disappointment.

I love Pasar Malams! But we have no courage to drive into JB due to the high crime rates. RM27 for 2 durians is cheap, are they yummy?

Unknown said...

Durian! Wow. We are planning a trip up north soon, wonderful exchange rate. :P

Sadly the pasar malam here is not as happening as in JB.

Phoebe said...

I didn't try the durians cos I don't like eating them but according to my was Good! :) We were also worried about driving in but the food just tempted us all the time.

Phoebe said...

Yes! It's so much cheaper now.. but has to be careful when driving in. We try not to go out late in the nights. ^_^

Hi May, it is in JB. :) Every night there will be pasar malam of different scale at different areas of Johor Bahru. Worth to visit one if you are there.

Hi! I'm Jesmin. Happen to find this chat. Can let me know how to get there after JB custom?

Phoebe said...

Hi Jesmin,

We drove in. Key in the GPS (GPS: 1.577180, 103.812191) and follow it to bring us to the night market. I apologise as I am unable to tell the road names to direct you after the custom.
