Each pasar always has a certain specialty and in this particular part of the town, roti bom seems to rule the stalls. I counted at least three stalls selling roti bom. Prepped on the spot, you get to catch lots of lovely action shots as the men twist and spin the roti canai dough to stretch it out. At the end it gets stretched into a thin piece that is folded into a circle and cooked on the hot grill. This yields a fluffy inside and a crispy exterior helped with lashings of Planta margarine.
Another must eat for me in this pasar is the wobbly creme caramel. You can generally pick out which stall is good. The top must be brown enough with the sweet caramel with a smooth like a baby’s bottom texture.
Cooling jellies, topped with fruits, sweets and even chocolate. These make great pictures but also taste good.
you can get a lobster sized meal. Just dig deep and deep into your pockets for that pricey meal.
These pasar are the best place to acquaint yourself with all kinds of Malay kuihs. A traditional favourite is kuih lopes that is engulfed with freshly grated coconut and drizzled with gula Melaka syrup.
There’s all kind of traditional favourites like ayam percik and eggy akok from Kelantan. And don’t forget the popiah basah here. Be patient as the queues are often long since they’re prepared on the spot.
Even daily favourites like nasi lemak all packed in banana leaf can be found here. All kinds are sold to whet your appetite.
Make a trip to the pasar and catch all the local favourites. You can also get dates, kebabs (the in thing this year), sotong bakar, putu bambu and the list goes on. 😂
