Keep an eye out for Hum Chim Peng, which is a soft bite with delicious insides.


Taman Munsyi Ibrahim Pasar Malam

Head out to Jalan Besar after 5 O' clock on a Saturday evening, and you'd be able to find the Taman Munsyi Ibrahim night market, which is a relatively small market compared to the other markets in the area. However, if jostling among the sweaty crowds is not your cup of tea, you'd enjoy a pleasant time at this place. However, you can look forward to some scrumptiously flavoured fried chicken and an array of other mouthwatering finger foods which would make you crave for more. A stall specialising in Nyonya kueh, which consists of colourful and flavour-filled Peranakan delicacies can be found at this location.
