Taman Connaught Pasar Malam (Night Market) At Cheras

Taman Connaught Pasar Malam, this is one night market most KL people have heard or been to as it is touted to being the longest night market in KL. Some people actually says it takes a good 1 hour plus just to walk from one end to the other, while eating, and checking out the stalls of course. Well, last week I went there for the second time ever with a couple of colleagues and trainees. The trainees, Joanne and Lau had never been to this Pasar Malam before so we thought it would be a good idea to introduce to them KL's longest night market.

Even though it's my second time here (first time was with fellow bloggers), I can still never get used to seeing so many people and stalls walking along such a narrow pathway. There are stalls selling various items ranging from clothes, DVDs, handphone accessories, ladies accessories, electronic items, and food, lots and lots of food. The crowd there at 8pm was so huge that it was literally a human jam (think of cars stuck in a jam, except these are humans stuck unable to move forward).

#1 China Burger (RM1.50 - RM3 depending on flavor)

I did not manage to capture all the different shops there, but suffice to say, it was massive. There was one stall selling "Chou To Fu" , smelly tofu which some said were delicious. Unfortunately none of us tried it, probably on my next trip here. As for now do check out more of the food stalls we managed to "makan" at that night.

#2 Curry Fish Balls (RM 1 per stick of 4 fish balls each)

#3 A wide variety of freshly made kuihs and cakes.

#4 "Siu Mai" Pork and Shrimp dumplings, one of my favourite! It tasted really good (RM0.50 per piece)

#5 Taiwan Sausages, another one of my must haves to munch on in any pasar malams while shopping (RM1.50/stick)

#6 Some "luo han guo" drinks to cool us down (RM1.20)

Of course, eating at all the side food stalls were enough to make us full, but we wanted to get a seat and have a proper dinner. That's when I saw some laksa and curry mee stalls which we figured should be good for a try. Unfortunately the quality of the laksa and curry mee left me quite disappointed. The laksa was too watery, and did not have much taste, same goes for the curry mee. I made a mental note to try other stalls the next time I come over.

Assam Laksa which was too watery for my liking (RM4.50)

Curry Mee, which was also slightly too watery, I need my curry thick with lots of taste. (RM4.50)

Janice and I soaking in the Pasar Malam experience, it was her first time here!

At the end of our pasar malam trip, which took a good 2 hours, I would say I'm satisfied and happy to binge on so much food in one night. I noticed the crowd gets more manageable as it gets later, so if you're planning on going for a walk in Taman Connaught's Pasar Malam, go later or risk getting all sweaty and tired from the jostling and pushing.

    I was flabbergasted when I saw this Pasar Malam in Connaught which is the longest in Malaysia...worth the experience to see how hectic this place is...the population of cheras can ransack all the stalls otherwise don't think they are so many around...hundreds of them if I am not wrong....

  15. Wow Siu Mai is 0.50 sen per piece but when you packaged it for dimsum nicely in a basket cost RM3-RM4 for 3. So its not the food but the packaging and branding plus the ambience that hiked up the price. hahaha
