Tuesday Tanjung Bungah Market Pasar Malam (Night Market) – Pasar malam, also known as night market is my favourite as there have a variety of delicious street snacks to eat and cheap stuff to shop for like clothing, mini electric appliances, accessories and more but the most important, is the food. Unlike in China, night market doesn’t station at a place every night. Every night is at different places around Penang.
On Tuesday night, there’s a wet market and food court which turns into a crowded and happenings night market when sun set. Cars started parking by the road side and people of all walk of life flows into the night market to bring a happening atmosphere.
I do go there occasionally for some light snacks, like crepe cake, hot dog, bubble tea, and local delicious hawker food.
Frankly, it’s not the best night market in Penang yet as Jelutong Taman Kheng Thean Night Market (Friday) and Farlim Night Market (Wednesday) have even more street food for you to choose. Nevertheless, a night market in the middle of the high end condominium residential area of this Tanjung Bungah bring a sense of local-ness to the high class living. You can see foreign residents enjoying night market too.
After a day of tiring work, a little walk at the night market with some icy drinks on hand is very relaxing. It get you out of the busy-ness of the city and traffic jam and slow your mind down.
