Malaysia Night Festival at Trafalgar Square


Yesterday London's Trafalgar Square was transformed into an authentic bustling Malaysian Pasar Malam. The one-off event showcased a range of cooking from Malaysian restaurants in the capital including one of my favourites Satay House.

 
The crowd at Trafalgar Square was a mixture of tourists and Londoners, and being a Friday night the queues for food were ridiculously long.  On average there were at least 50 people queuing for each stall. 


Thankfully, the AB and I came with an action plan and headed straight to Paddington's stalwart Satay House for a warm, and flavoursome bowl of kari laksa, egg noodles in a curry broth with vegetables and tofu.   


We also shared a delicious plate of beef rendang and spicy chicken wings.


Verdict:  Despite the frustratingly long queues and lack of room to manoeuvre and eat, it was a great evening,  and even the rain held out.

Looks like you got there bright and early. When we arrived later food was beginning to run out. A shame as was itching for some Nasi Lemak.
Hopefully they will do it for a weekend next year.

We were lucky but after we finished eating our food from Satay House, we tried queuing at another stall but gave up after waiting for 20 minutes(!)
