Pasar Malam Tangkak Johor ⭐⭐⭐✱✱

Pasar-Malam-Tangkak-Johor

This was my first time visiting the pasar malam in Tangkak which opens only on Saturday night. I was a guest of Orient Driveaway 2016 and Pasar Malam Tangkak was the last stop before the convoy of 11 cars return to Singapore via Gelang Patah.

Pasar Malam Tangkak is huge with (I estimate) about 150 stalls of all kinds. It's like a mobile department stall with an excellent food and beverage section. We were blessed with cool breezy weather, so we enjoyed the pasar malam at it's best.

The pasar malam has a Halal food section with around 20 stalls.

It's the local answer to Kentucky Fried Chicken with local spice marination. This busy stall rivals any KFC in popularity.

The greasy aromatic fumes from the red hot charcoal grill filled the street sticking to our clothes, hair and camera lens.

Besides local fruits, the fruit stalls also sell imported fruits. This is Tangkak, one of Johor's main durian growing areas, yet we didn't even see one stall selling durian. So, double confirmed, the durian season is over liao for this year.

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)
