Cheap, tasty dishes to look for include laksa, Chinese-style mee sapi (beef noodle soup), red kolo mee (noodles with pork and a sweet barbecue sauce), tomato kueh tiaw (a fried rice-noodle dish) and shaved ice desserts (ask for ‘ABC’ at stall 17). The Chinese seafood stalls that open in the afternoon are on the side facing the river.

From early mornings until mid-afternoon there is also a stall selling fish head and duck porridge, if that's your thing.

The market (which isn't strictly speaking open-air) has two sections, separated by a road, on the site of a former fire station; the yellow tower was once used as a fire lookout.
