Taking the form of an authentic Malaysian pasar malam created by Malaysia Kitchen, the event on Friday was to showcase Malaysian cuisine and culture.
About 25,000 Londoners visited the night market that had 25 outlets selling Malaysian favourites, including beef rendang, nasi lemak and satay.
The event, which started at 3pm, was best patronised when people began returning home from work.
It is understood that the allocation of a spot in Trafalgar Square is highly competitive.
Pasar malam is a Malay and Indonesian word that literally means "night market", "pasar" being related to "bazaar" in Persian. A pasar malam is a street market in Indonesia and Malaysia, that opens in the evening, usually in residential neighbourhoods.The free event is one of the highlights of the year long Malaysia Kitchen campaign which aims to educate British consumers about the world of Malaysian cuisine.
Malaysian food is an extraordinary combination of native Malay, Chinese, and Indian food traditions, sprinkled with Southeast Asian, Portuguese and Middle Eastern influences, among others.
