Monday Pasar Malam near KSL Mall Taman Century Johor Bahru ⭐⭐⭐✱✱
The Monday evening pasar malam at Taman Century is popular with locals and tourists because there are about 100 stalls of all kinds, and it is conveniently located near hotels and eateries. All the stalls are simply lined up in a straight line along Jalan Seladang, starting at KSL City Mall.
The other end of the pasar malam is at Grand Paragon Hotel - that tall building in the background. The pasar malam starts opening around 5:00pm and starts closing around 8:30pm. The best / busiest time to visit is between 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
There are buses serving KSL City Mall from the Sentral bus station at JB CIQ, so it is very convenient for visitors.
Like any Malaysian pasar malam, there are plenty of food stalls at the Taman Century pasar malam. This is the famous Penang fruit rojak stall. It's one of my favourite rojak stalls in Johor and Singapore.
The popular Ngee Heng chwee kueh stall is also here at the KSL pasar malam.
There are two carrot cake stalls at this pasar malam. This is the more eggy "white" one. The constant clanking sound of those spatulas and aroma of fried carrot cake fill the street around the stall.
This carrot cake stall serves the "black" style.
I haven't tried it yet, but this popular "burger" stall looks very interesting.
It has different types of interesting fillings between the buns.
At the dim sum stall. There was just one last, hot selling plus sized "Amy Yip" pork bao left.
Muah chee 麻芝 freshly made by folding glutinous rice balls in a heap of crushed toasted peanuts. There are 2 muah chee stalls at this pasar malam.
The busy fried and grilled seafood and chicken stall.
Lovely looking grilled sotong (squid).
Ayam percik stall - it's spice marinated chicken charcoal grilled and eaten with a fiery looking hot sauce.
Moo ping or Thai style sweet tender grilled pork patty.
Mooncake festival is just around the corner. There are Yuen Fatt Shanghai style mooncakes sold here, so there is no need to go to Kluang to get these.
There are a few fruit stalls selling mostly local fruits and some imported ones.
There are still a few durian stalls offering kampung durians though this year's season has more or less ended. If you are buying mao shan wang durian, please check out this post first ☚ click.
There are a couple of egg stalls. The white colour eggs in the foreground are duck eggs. Besides the usual farm eggs, there are also kampung chicken eggs.
There a few fishmongers - yes, there are always fishmongers at Malaysian night markets. The fish at pasar malams are pretty fresh.
Nanyang style roasted coffee beans.
Toys "R" Us.
There is even a stall selling tropical fish.
Betta (fighting fish) sold in light bulbs.
There are all kinds of stalls imaginable.
3-Star If you are visiting JB and happens to be around town on Monday evening, you may want to check out the Taman Century pasar malam. You can actually have quite a sumptuous dinner here just by snacking at the various food stalls. You have to eat standing and walking, but that is part of the fun.
