Brinchang Cameron Highlands - Night Market (Pasar Malam) opposite Police Station

Stalls on both sides - food street
One of the top attractions in Cameron Highlands is Brinchang Night Market or what the local called 'Pasar Malam'. This night market only operates on the weekends (Friday and Saturday nights) but during Malaysian school holidays, it operates every night starting from 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm. The Night Market cover relatively a size of at least half a football field, situated opposite Brinchang Police Station by the road side.

This place is really happening! The vehicles on the narrow main road was crawling where we were there. Some of the drivers were slowing down to spot for car park, others could be picking up passengers or loading the stuff purchased. So it'd be better to park beside Brinchang Central Market and walk to 'Pasar Malam'.

The Night Market entails several sections such as food street, clothing stretch, vegetables/flowers/fruits corners, souvenirs and last but not least the plants as well.

What's interesting in Night Market? I will let the pictures captured do most of the talking!


Everything looks good and delicious when you are hungry! These are all the fried seafood in batter. First row from left is crab, fried chicken on the second row, then fried squibs and fried prawns are on far right.

This stall offers fried vegetables and fried mushroom (on the left of the below picture). The round balls (the far right) on mesh wire are honey sweet potato balls.

Fried stuff
This man really caught the attention of many with his skill in frying rice cake. The one and only stall of fried rice cake operates here, it is sometimes called as radish cake as well depending on what it is made from. The Penangites called it 'Char Koay Kak'. The square rice cake is fried in oil with garlic, preserved vegetables, prawn, bean sprouts and garlic chives/Chinese leek (known locally as 'Daun Kucai') to perfection and comes with or without egg based on individiual's preference. The aromatic smell is mouth-watering!
Fried Koay Kak in action
Cameron Highlands seems to be the homeland for purple skin sweet potatos. They are soft and sweet, good to eat while it is still hot after steaming! The pearl corn appears altenating in yellow and white is very juicy. We love it so much and grab a bunch home.

Bee and the hives, is it here where the honey comes from?

Lavendar cauliflower flower - a rare species that seems abundance in Cameron Highlands!
Voilet or Lavendar Cauliflower - one of its kind!
Lily, rose, carnation, any flowers - they are all here! However, be cautious if you wish to purchase, check out the stems or roots carefully. Ensure they are not rotten. Most of them are under the clearing program, usually don't look fresh and may not last even 3 days after you take home.
Colors of flowers
Capsicums, Zuchinis, Carrots, Brochollis, Potatos, Beans look very attractive - most sellers offer three packet for RM5!Any three packets for RM10
Strawberry - the icon of Cameron Highlands! They are at every corner in Night Market. Best to eat fresh.
