Pasar malam shakes up Trafalgar Square

LONDON: A flood of Malaysian food stalls took over Trafalgar Square in the second instalment of Malaysia Night here.

Taking the form of an authentic Malaysian pasar malam created by Malaysia Kitchen, the event on Friday was to showcase Malaysian cuisine and culture.

About 25,000 Londoners visited the night market that had 25 outlets selling Malaysian favourites, including beef rendang, nasi lemak and satay.

The event, which started at 3pm, was best patronised when people began returning home from work.

One of them was accountant Diane Peterson, who said: “I actually had other dinner plans, but upon catching the smell of satay, I could not resist diverting here.”

Malaysia Night was launched by High Commissioner Datuk Zakaria Sulong and graced by London Deputy Mayor Richard Barnes.

Speaking to Bernama, Zakaria drew attention to the event which has been held for two years in a row.

It is understood that the allocation of a spot in Trafalgar Square is highly competitive.
