Chow Kit Market

One of my favorite places to visit in Kuala Lumpur is the Chow Kit Market.

All the ingredients you could ever want to cook a feast are available at the market including lots of stink beans and the pods pictured (known as look ngian in Thai, but not sure what they are called in Malay).

    mark: Oh mark. I used to hate stink bean (petai) cooked in sambal, but I went to a village in the forest once at the foothills of cameron highlands and the village host cooked the most freshest and awesome plate of stink bean. That encountered really changed my mind about stickbeans.

    Oh dear, all the stink beans. 🙂 The green pods are called petai in Indonesia, while the darker ones are called jengkol. I prefer the former though.
