My wife really loves night market, simply because there are tons of food that she can taste and buy. Another reason is simply she can get fruits and some groceries that fresh from farm. Every Thursday, Chow Yang SS2 will have 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 really likes.
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 are arrive around 5:20 PM, and it still have a lot, but we never see him stop scooping. Average by 6:20 PM. All has finished. SO far I had taste his peanut thong sui and it is really smooth. Better than I taste at S17 thong sui. This stall should be your first priority to get the food and I can tell that you would not regret it. Whatever he sells, buy!! ( I know it is sound like 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 favourite. She often tell me that she always wanted to eat this but seldom have the chances. Well, I can tell since the price is more expensive. If you have not tried this, you should. Especially you should not goes around night market with empty stomach (you will end up buy lots of food more than you planned). I like the peanut and chilli sauce. We ate 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 normal spring roll. The vege inside is also tasty. A well balance of Asian taste in one roll. I like it much and absolutely will buy again every time I go here.
Who can resist of this fried stuff stall? Although this stall famous with the big size fried chicken, they also has fried squid, and also fish fillet. You can get extra spicy, provided you ask nicely and be friendly with these couple.
This snack is something special, it came all the way from Ipoh. I take the spicy one, and I love it. RM 10 for 3 big bag. Yes, it is a little bit costly, if you want cheaper, go all the way to Ipoh and you can get cheaper price (you might need to count the toll and also petrol). I honestly think the price is fair bargain.
My first time drinking this is at China town, and here also sell with the same taste. A bit too sweet according to my taste, but it is good and refreshing for thirsty throat.
The cake on the right side, is something that I look high and low in this chow yang night market. I really loves this cake, it is hard to make, and price is cheap. Especially when they made it in traditional way, 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 go again, she could not found the same uncle selling this cake.
This is the final result from our shopping. Have not 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 really dangerous when you carry a lot of cash and entering night market. I always told my wife to bring only limited cash on night market for budget control purpose.
