Food Trip: Pasar Malam, Taman Connaught

One of the longest night market in Malaysia. If you are from the middle part of the city which is Bukit Bintang, it will only take 22-30 minutes to go there by car. 
A Wednesday Night Market in Kuala Lumpur.

As stated, it is only available on Wednesdays and be sure to be in Kuala Lumpur on a Wedsnesday to enjoy this!
It is best to start from the McDonald's area and walk your way to the end. Just like the tips in Jalan Alor to be a wise customer since there are more than one Seller selling the same thing. Also, there are plenty of goods from Food to other items. 
Here are some photos of the things we bought together with the prices.

The cakes are really fluffy, not that very sweet, and delicious. What is more fun, you can taste them before buying! I love free tasting~

There are varieties of sausages in a skewer. We couldn't resist not taking one!  
We got two different kinds of sausages to enjoy together.

 And the famous Chopo chicken. Well, I am not sure if it is really famous, but Calvin has been saying that he wants to eat it even before we left for Malaysia. 

I now agree why he wanted to try it. It tastes really great! Very nice to eat while walking, the spices were nice and crispy and crunchy at the same time! Love it! 
 And one thing I can't stop myself is to eat some oysters when I see them! Especially when I see the word "cheese" with it.
 I can't suppress my love for oysters. It costs RM 12 for three pieces with different flavors each. It was expensive but oh well, seafood is seafood and it is love.
They also sell huge squids, scallops, and other shellfish.
I am eating my chopo chicken while waiting for the oysters.
There are seating areas too for food that you need to eat on a table. 
We got, 1 cheese and 2 spicy oysters.
After eating or during eating, we got so thirsty and we found this seller! Fresh juice puree for such a good price! We got three bottles of course!
 As I said, there are also other sellers... they sell various things like: 
Clothing for men, women, and even underwear.
Make up, face care, body care, and other accessories for both men and women.
Neck pillow, body pillow, towels and others.
Even ceramic bowls
Be careful when walking as it normally gets really crowded.
Learn to just be agile, quick, and observant. Some people are just standing in the middle of the road apparently waiting for their order so don't fall in line expecting you can get out of the crowd. Be observant enough to see how you can get away from the crowd and go to the store you want to go.

Then here comes another journey of our food. We got these sticky desserts for our snacks in the hotel.
  We got some cassava cakes from here and the pink sticky snack for RM 2 / pack.
We also got some Shumai to eat as we were so curious about it. The size was bigger than I usually had and with so many varieties for such an affordable price of RM 6 for 5 pieces assorted Shumai. The seller was so kind to help me as well when I was doing the purchase and choosing the ones I wanted. Calvin was busy taking the photos this time.

You might not see it, but here are the Shumai we got. 
If hotpot is what you fancy, you can get it from this truck seller. We didn't get one as we already had quite a lot of food. 
I am not sure what this is called. We just happen to walk past by while so many people are walking. 
There are normal tea if you prefer than the fruit juices.
 More fried and grilled food!

I am not so sure what he was preparing in this last photo but it looked delicious. We didn't get to eat it though since we were looking forward to other food we could eat in the market.

Here is a liquidation of all the costs we (2pax) had when we went there:
Since we were staying at a hotel in Bangsar South, we had to go all the way from there to Taman Connaught. It was quite traffic as we left a little late which was during the rush hour.

I hope you find this helpful and enjoyed this post. Do share if you have any experiences in going to this market or other night markets in Malaysia.
