Pasar malam is no longer what it used to be. I remember many moons ago when it is a great place to get reasonable priced and pretty good quality food. But at many pasar malam you go nowadays, it's very expensive and the food stuff you get is below expectation.
Also, those pasar malam located near the main road only serves to create traffic problems. The one near Sunway is an example where the patrons will park haphazardly along the NPE, creating chaos and near accidents. Of coz, there's always the example in Cheras where owners have no way to get into their own houses.
I would say that things have definitely change and is no longer what it used to be.

i agree with your point. Nowadays food there is kinda pricy...cause used to go pasar malam with just RM 20 can buy so many foods...now...u will need at least more than RM 30 but also just some couple of snacks and stuff..Everything is expensive now....

Whenever I go to the pasar malam now, it never fails to sadden me. Retailers are bringing their unsold goods to sell at pasar malam. Especially the fashion apparels. The cake seller obviously has a shop somewhere, including the one selling tofu/uncooked noodles/dried food/etc. These are no longer home businesses, but extensions of retailing. Goes to show our economy is inefficient. Years ago, many of these pasar malam sellers were doing it for additional income. The homemade food were a lot tastier, because they enjoyed making them, like a hobby.

There's not much incentive to go these days. I rather support the family-owned local supermarket nearby.

I quite agree with Yvonne Foong, the local family run sundry shop will sell fresh fish as well as vegetables if they have regular customers. It is wise as you can know whether it is fresh or expired and refund if something you purchase goes bad.

If you notice carefully the operators of pasar malam , actually you can find them in the daily wet market. It is like their way of warehouse sales.

Even in the SS15 wet market, you can see the difference in stalls , especially those who sell fish. I am a regular there and I only goes to the one operated by the tall guy ( Fresh but a bit pricey ) and the husband and wife team beside the Malay stall on your right.

Please understand I am not complaining about pasar malam. I just feel sorry for them. We are all family of the human race.

Yes I agree with the posters afore. They're crap these days.

But since my sister 'stole' my USJ house before i came back from London last year, i'm now 'forced' to stay temporarily in a Kinrara semi-d belonging to another relative, not far from the cricket ground. Right across from where I stay I suddenly discovered a new pasar malam, which actually was a bit of positive surprise.....at least regarding meats, fish and fruit.

This pasar malam is in the Kinrara industrial area right before the flyover. I think it's open on Sunday nights. Coming from USJ or Sunway, you need to make a U-turn at the Golf-club junction and go back towards Puchong. Pass under the flyover and it's the next junction.

Apart from that I've always thought the one in TTDI behind the old Menara IBM, now Menara VADS, is a quite decent one.... but ok things might have changed.... quite a bit to travel for a (U)SJ:er of course....

Just out of curiosity... how fresh is fresh at the "pasar malam and pasar tani"....

what i mean, is how to know or find out if the fishmongers have been adding formaldehyde [formalin] in the ice... to keep the fish/seafood stocks 'looking fresh'.... who can test for these chemical compunds????

My suspicion now has kicked in, after buying a kilo of (very fresh looking) prawns at the morning PASAR TANI in Taipan... but after cooking the still fresh looking prawns, it tasted like disintergrating powder in the mouth... somewhat like prawns that have been frozen like over a month :(

I'll be damn if the traders are using formaldehyde in their stocks and we are inadvertedly poisoning ourselves and our family on every marketing trip :eek:

The only pasar malam I still patronise is in Bangsar. Minum then makan then minum. The nearest I went is the SS15 KFC couple of years back, don't know still around or not. Main meals are the fried stuff and Malay food. Tau Foo Far also.

Instead of pasar malam, they should have pasar tani or farmers' market. And they should only allow bona-fide farmers to set up stalls. I agree that today's pasar malam is no longer the same as yesteryears. Their rent is dirt cheap but they charge similar prices as coffeeshops.

An option is to ban all sales of food products except pre-cooked food like cakes, nasi lemak, and fruits. It does not make sense to have hawkers cooking food there and dirtying the environment.

No need to test. My cousin at selayang wholesale market confirmed that they have no choice but to put washing powder before ice to maintain the fresh look. Do notice that flies do not land on such fishes at display in pasar malam?? :confused: :eek: :eek:
