My favourite place for breakfast this side of the island. I usually take the Char Mee Suah, its made from fresh local ingredients and made to order in the markets Hawker center, I like it extra spicy. All for the princely sum of RM3.00 Yummy!!!

Hi Paul, I must try that someday. I do my marketing here and usually around elevenish when it is quieter. One of the chaps who sells chickens was formerly my wife's student. I also know very well one of the guys who sells veggies. You might know the "Tanjong Bungah market" in the 60s and 70s was merely a collection of open air stalls by the side of Tanjong Bungah Road until this new market was built. There was a very good nasi lemak stall run by a couple of Chinese ladies at the open air market but after the new market was opened, I did not see them anymore. Some hawkers just like to be in the open :-)

Hi Kayes, my wife and I are usually daily early birds at the market, first our marketting then taking breakfast, either at the hawker centre or just around the corner on the main road for a nice fresh Tosai and lovely cup of pulled Nescafe. Like you say the market is very busy in the early morning, especially since they stopped charging for car parking. Sadly I never saw the market when it was open air, but I can imagine how it has changed.


Update : car park charges are back on again, but the numbers of visitors has not decreased. Must be a tribute to the quality and freshness of the produce being offered here.


best wishes


Paul
