This past Saturday July 28, 2012, 626 Night Market held it's second event at the City Hall in Pasadena. Although Mad Mochi did not have a vendor booth this time around, we certainly jumped in on the fun, food, entertainment, and ultimate Asian night market experience. There were many complaints about the past first event being overly crowded and many people not being to purchase any food at all. This time, I'd say it was quite a success. Not only was parking easier to find, but the 626 Night Market volunteer staff made sure to control the customer lines which also prevented any walking traffic jams. There were a ton more vendors and lots of delicious variety of food. Overall, the night market experience, although not exactly the same as the ones in Asia, definitely exceeded our expectations.

We loved the caramelized spam bread budding. Yum!
