My wife loves the night market, simply because there are tons of food that she can taste and buy. Another reason is she can get fruits and some groceries that fresh from the farm. Every Thursday, Chow Yang SS2 will have a night market that packed with locals. Not to mentions, it is hard to find parking, and the traffic is massive. Despite that, we still go to chow yang night market simply the food is something that we like.
This thong sui stall is the first to finish in this Chow Yang night market. You can see many people will crowding this stall, and even some buy a lot of packages in one go simply because the taste is superb. When I went here with my wife, we arrive around 5:20 PM, and it still has a lot, but we never see him stop scooping. Average by 6:20 PM. All have finished. SO far, I had tasted his peanut thong sui, and it is smooth. Better than I eat at S17 thong sui. This stall should be your priority to get the food, and I can tell that you would not regret it. Whatever he sells, buy!! ( I know it sounds like a hard sell, but trust me. You late a few mins, it will be gone, and you have to wait for next week.).
This stall is my wife’s favorite. She often tells me that she always wanted to eat this but seldom have the chance. Well, I can say to you since the price is higher. If you have not tried this, you should. Especially you should not go around the night market with an empty stomach (you will end up buy lots of food more than you planned). I like the peanut and chili sauce. We ate a few sticks and the price already above RM 10. One thing that we feel it is worth, the ingredients are fresh (if not, I will be the first to complain).
Our third stop is this fried spring roll. Something special is that the skin is crispy. Not to ticked as some regular spring roll. The vegetable inside is also tasty. A typical well balance of Asian taste contained in a dish that I like it much, and I absolutely will repurchase it every time I go here.
Who can resist this fried stuff stall? Although this stall famous with the big size fried chicken, it also has grilled squid and even fish fillet. You can get extra spicy, provided you ask nicely and be friendly with these couples.
This snack is something special. It came from Ipoh. I take the spicy one, and I love it. RM 10 for three big bags. Yes, it is a little bit costly, if you want cheaper, go all the way to Ipoh, and you can get more affordable price (you might need to count the toll and also petrol). I honestly think the price is a fair bargain.
My first time drinking this is in China Town, and here also sell with the same taste. A bit too sweet according to my taste, but it is pleasant and refreshing for the thirsty throat.
The cake on the right side is something that I look high and low in this chow yang night market. I love this cake, it is hard to make, and the price is low. Especially when they made it traditionally, it is superb. I always ask my wife if she can find this cake, as it reminds me of my happy childhood when eating this cake. Surprisingly the uncle does not open weekly, as the next week when my wife goes again, she could not found the same uncle selling this cake.
This is the final result of our shopping. Have not to count the fruits that we buy later on and my hand full of plastic bag. Now the scary part, all our cash in our wallet is finished. It is dangerous when you carry a lot of money and entering the night market. I always told my wife to bring only limited cash on the night market for budget control purposes.
