The first 626 Night Market held in Pasadena last April ended up being way too popular for its own good. But attendees who dared to brave the market last night were happy to report that the organizers were prepared for the enthusiastic masses this time.

Foodies who returned last night said there was a noticeable difference from the last time: there was plenty of space and parking for the crowds that showed up and, most importantly, there was plenty of delicious food to go around.

Some folks complained about the way the aptly named "stinky tofu" smelled but others said it was a tasty and absolutely crucial part of the Asian night market experience. Some of the food available included grass jelly drinks, Hong Kong egg waffles, takoyaki, watermelon juice and lots of food on sticks and skewers.

If you went, let us know what you thought in the comments.
