“Ok Street Food”

Langkawi Night Market

Attraction details
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Good atmosphere but definitely not up there with the best night markets in Asia. The people at the market were nice & there are lots of food options to choose from. Other than food though there is not a great deal else other than fake-watches.

We dropped by Thursday's night market. Small in size, but excellent variety!

It was fun to buy and try food on the spot. However, not all stalls maintain appropriate methods of handling food. We had a lady who cut up our apam balik and handle cash with her bare hands.

Also, avoid stalls with food sitting around for quite a while without being sold. Regular buyers clearly avoid them for a reason!

This is a great place to see and try the local cuisine, but we aware of the food that is sitting around already cooked. The people are friendly and the food is delicious, but try and ask for them to cook it in front of you. We got food poisoning from the corn on the cob that was cooked and then sat in a plastic bag afterwards - apparently a hive for bacteria.
MUST try the drinks and the little coconut squares, delicious!

I waited until Sunday to go to the local night market. I was told it was the best night. When I got there it was terrible. I found the prices more expensive then the local duty free. However on terms of food it is cheap. But I would not eat it because of food positioning.
If you go and you are squeamish I would advise you stay away

The Pasar Malam is the best place to discover the Malay delights at really convenient prices. You will enjoy not only the food, but also its friendly atmosphere. We do love all the pasar malam on Langkawi island. Each of them has its own charm. If you are just here on holidays, have a look at the beautiful fresh vegetables, the colorful clothes, gadgets of every kind and don't miss the durian if it is the season...
