TAMAN CONNAUGHT NIGHT MARKET

The humming Taman Connaught Night Market best illustrates our obsession with street food. Perched behind their stalls, vendors offer slap-up versions of fried chicken, curry noodles, char kuey teow, laksa, satay and ABC that will keep you going until midnight. Stay for the stinky tofu - you will spot (or smell) it easily by the queue that snacks around the block.
