This midnight food bazaar in Johor Bahru has over 300 stalls with lok lok, “rainbow” drinks, giant meatballs & more

I’m sure by now that going into JB over the weekend and visiting a food bazaar has almost become second nature to us all. 

So, if you’re planning to cross the borders this upcoming weekend, here’s yet another bazaar to stuff yourself silly.

From now till 15 June 2024, Local Foodie Fest is a food bazaar located at UTM Skudai with over 300 vendors including the likes of viral street eats, trendy apparel, and live music performances.

What better way to bond with your friends or family than eating and shopping together?

Food-wise, you can look forward to over 150 F&B stalls just waiting for you to try ‘em all. Pro tip: you’re gonna want to come here with an empty stomach because there’s just so much to try!

Some must-haves here include the crowd-favourite lok lok, giant fried squid, Korean-style corn dogs slathered in nacho cheese, takoyaki and so much more. 

There’s also a variety of local fare like nasi goreng, satay, nasi kuning (fragrant turmeric rice) with prawn or meat options, amongst many others.

Wash it all down with drinks like the quintessential  Thai milk tea, teh tarik, and coffee. 

But, what intrigues me the most are these “rainbow” drinks drizzled with sweet, sticky syrup in milk that comes in different flavours — I’d probably go for this drink simply because it looks so vibrant and inviting.

There are other smaller bites like freshly made-to-order churros with different dipping sauces, colorful rainbow jelly, tanghulu and baby pancakes as well. 

When else would you get to try these delicious sweet treats for just a third of its usual price?

Burn off the calories by browsing through the retail corner that has affordable yet stylish clothes like baju kurungs and baju melayus so you can rock that couple fit. 

Finish off the look with a pair of shoes or head accessories — they even have Crocs-inspired shoes if you want to hop on the Crocs bandwagon.

Those who are bringing the little ones and need something to keep them occupied whilst you shop, don’t fret. 

There are plenty of toys to buy and games to play like the inflatable bouncy castles, kiddy car rides, fishing, and art jamming. 

Best part is that this bazaar is open till midnight so you can take your time to visit every stall without rushing to and fro. 

Just remember, it will only be taking place till this Saturday so if I were you, I would start calling up my friends and head down to JB right now!
