Before I say anything, I confess, this fish in the main photo scared me. I have no idea what’s the name of the fish but I didn’t think the colour was eatable. I mean, have you seen anything eatable in fluorescent colour in natural condition? I haven’t except some candy. But I guess that’s just because of my narrow minded view of the world.
KK night market was wet, splash, dripping and mostly fun. What I liked about in this lively neighbourhood was most of the people eating and buying were the people who were living there, not many travelers like us. They were buying well crafted fish for their dinner at home. Handy work by seasoned fish vendors was very amusing to watch. It reminded me of a traditional market in Korea in the old days. Korea had this similar type of market, and still does in some places.
Though the vendors were extremely kind to visitors. Obviously they’ve met lots of travelers and taken photos by them. I met many vendors were willing to pose for my photo. They smiled, made an eye contact with my camera, and one guy actually made a very funny impression with one of his fish. I got that on video.
Don’t forget to have a dinner at KK night market. You can pick whatever you want and they will cook for you right at the spot. With too many and broad choices… Tiger prawn – for the first time in my life- and squid were the victims of the night for me. And they were delicious! Sorry guys.. but girls gotta eat!
It was pleasant to walk around. Surrounded by happy people. Be aware of fish juice though. It is everywhere!
