Pasar Malam Johor Bahru Malaysia

pasar malam johor baru

There is no better place to experience the diversity and heart of Johor Bahru than a night market. The universal appeal of good cheap eats, fresh vegetables at bargain rates, and the unexpected encounter or trinket proves to be a universal draw.

Night markets open most days of the week, at different locations. We regularly visited the Monday evening night market outside the KSL mall. It was a huge party for the senses, and everyone and anyone is invited, for free.

Malaysian, Chinese, Thai and Indian cultures have all carved out their own culinary stake in Johor Bahru’s food scene. The best of what each has to offer is here to be found. Classic recipes that have been perfected over years of skillful preparation are all here, waiting for you.

The only question is, how far are you willing to wade into a thick crowd of strangers with no end in sight, all speaking different languages, most of which you don’t understand, to get the prize? (Whatever that prize may be) Even for the timid, it’s worth doing at least once. And for those who find what they’re looking for, it’s worth doing, and greatly anticipating, every single week. 

JB Night Market Food

For us, there were many many prizes. The first we encountered on our initial visit to the Monday Night Market were the shumai dumplings. We had come to love them during our weekend outings to Boston’s Chinatown.  And here they were, steaming away at one of the makeshift roadside stands.
