SHAH ALAM: The Malaysian Book of Records has confirmed that the Setia Alam night market at U13, which stretches 2.2km end-to-end, is the longest in the country.

The night market, a popular spot for Klang Valley food bloggers, was officially declared the Longest Pasar Malam in Malaysia during a ceremony at the site on Saturday night.

“I’ve always known we deserve the title,” said Khoo Lim How, deputy chairperson of the Night Traders Association U13, describing the area as more of a “glutton’s corner” than a night market selling non-food items.

He said the association submitted their application to the national record-keeper last year.

It is also one of the most visited in the city, according to Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) deputy mayor Mohtar Hani.

Food bloggers say patrons are spoilt for choice, with culinary offerings from nearly all the ethnic groups in Malaysia available from 6pm to 11pm.

The night market lays claim to having the only stall in the country to offer authentic wood-fire baked pizza.

“It’s affordable, delicious and you can have your pizza outdoors here,” said Danny Hong, who was waiting for his take-away chicken and mushroom pizza.

A few stalls have been featured on local television food guides like Astro’s Ho Chak.

One of them, Master Bean – pun intended, said the owner Bowen Lum – sells almost 400 bowls of velvety soft tau foo far, with ice-cold lychee on top.

The other is Pak Jawa’s murtabak - a local dish where pastry is stuffed with beef, chicken or mutton and panfried.

“I’m glad we got recognised as the longest night market,” said stall owner

Tajuddin Rosli Wan Hamsah, adding that nearly 150 pieces of murtabak he churns out on Saturday nights are bought by Chinese patrons.

Homemaker Hwa Sze Yenn said U13 traders come from other night markets, notably from Taman Chi Liung in Klang.

Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim attended the ceremony and presented a plaque and certificate to the Night Traders Association and its committee members.

The pasar malam on Jalan Setia, Prima A U13/1 Setia Alam also sells fresh produce, clothing and other household items.
