Johor Bahru has many night markets that operate almost every day of the week. Johor Jaya Night Market is one of the best night market in Johor.
Johor Jaya Tuesday Night Market has more than 100 stalls. It is a food paradise that should be visited by every foodie. Every Tuesday at Jalan Dedap 13, from 4 – 10 p.m.
Here’s a list of food items you must try when visiting Johor Jaya Tuesday Night Market.
Johor Jaya Tuesday Night Market has a great selection of polo buns. Because of the perfect combination between hot polo buns, cold creamy butter, and ice fire pineapple buns, the stall’s polo buns are called “Ice Fire Pineapple bun”. These two ingredients make a great companion, as the hot polo rolls will melt the cold cream butter to add saltiness. You can ask for butter substitutes from the owner if butter is not your preferred flavor.
As a suggestion, eat the polo bun warm to enjoy the perfect combination of hot and cold textures.
02.Fried Chicken with Salted Egg Gravy
To attract customers’ attention, the stall owner uses humor to name his stall. His stall was called Xian Dan Chao Ren (literally Ultraman) and he also named his products Xian Dan Zha Ji Kuai (Fried Chicken Coated With Salted Egg Gravy). You will be able to see the long queue and taste how delicious their Fried Chicken Coated With Salted Egg Gravy.
Fried Chicken Coated With Salted Egg Gravy is prepared fresh on the spot. This ensures that the chicken remains tender and retains its original texture. The stall owner will first fry all the chicken pieces marinated and then let them cool. The stall owner will continue to prepare the salted eggs sauce by cooking the pre-made salted eggs sauce with some curry gravy.
The curry gravy adds a touch of spice to the sweet salty egg sauce. This is very appetizing. After the chicken is fried, the owner of the stall will combine the special salted eggs sauce with the chicken pieces and sell them.
Salted Egg Chicken will keep everyone hooked with its crispy chicken pieces and special sweet, savory, and spicy salted eggs sauce.
Fried Pumpkin Slices with Salted Egg Sauce are also available at the stall. The pumpkin slices are soft and sweet in every bite. The salted egg sauce adds saltiness to help milden the pumpkin’s sweetness.
Johor Jaya Tuesday night market also features a stall selling delicious roasted ducks. We bet you won’t resist this little slice of heaven with its perfectly roasted golden brown skin as well as the juicy flesh.
