JB Eat: KSL City Mall Night Market on Monday Nights
Many people usually go to KSL City Mall for shopping, movies, massage and dining on weekends — especially the wide range of local food that can be found around the mall.
The odd thing is, the night market (a.k.a. KSL Pasar Malam) materialise outside KSL City Mall only on Monday nights. After 5pm on every Monday, the stretch of road (Jalan Seladang) from outside the main entrance of KSL City Mall to Grand Paragon Hotel will be closed off to vehicles (but, not fully) to make way for a night market along the road.
Makeshift stalls will be set up to sell all kinds of food stuffs, vegetables, bags, clothes, etc. You can find many local food and snacks here at relatively cheap prices — but not all stuffs though.
Some food stalls may offer tables and chairs for "eating-in" but most are for take-aways only. It is convenient for locals to pack and go but visitors will have to find a place to eat the food. Eating while walking in the crowded night market is not recommended as chances of dirtying other peoples' clothes are high and may result in unnecessary squabbles. Find a non-obstructing corner, finish the food before continuing through the night market.
A Malay stall selling pancakes with large selection of fillings (above) and a Chinese stall selling Hong Kong style carrot cake (below) — two items were all I can eat in one visit.
There are many more food options, just take your picks.
5pm to 10pm | Monday night only
Note that the night market can be overly-crowded during Malaysia and Singapore school holidays even though it is held on Monday nights. If you are taking F100 shuttle bus to JB CIQ on Monday night, board the bus at the basement exit instead of at the main entrance.
