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.

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.

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.

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.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
