It’s the month of Ramadan and our Muslim friends in Malaysia and around the world are fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. And during the Puasa month, there’s one thing all Malaysians always look forward to regardless whether or not we puasa, and that’s the Ramadan bazaars popping up everywhere! Gotta grab those Ramadan specials!
If you’re looking for a Ramadan bazaar to visit around the Klang Valley but you’re spoilt for choice and you don’t know where to start, here’s a list of some of the must-visit bazaars around and what you must tapau! You’re welcome!
1. Bazaar Ramadan Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI)
Not the largest one around but it’s probably one of the most popular bazaars in town that promises great food! We visit this one once a year! Ask any Malaysian and they’ll probably recommend this bazaar, so if you’re planning to pay this one a visit, be sure to tapau these yummy things:
Pak Shahiful’s popiah basah
Expect a queue at this stall, especially during peak hour, which is about 5pm to 6pm!
Made with Malaysians’ favourite ingredients (garlic, onions, dried chillies, serai, coconut milk, and more), this delicious smokey treat is something you can even enjoy on its own.
Who doesn’t love a good, hearty murtabak! Give the ‘Murtabak Special’ a try if you like things cheesy.
Location: Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 2, TTDI, 60000, KL
2. Bazaar Ramadan Kelana Jaya
Boasting 250 stalls of food, drinks and other knick-knacks opened here, it is hands-down the largest Ramadan bazaar you’ll find in the Klang Valley. So, if you want variety, this is the place for you! Also, make sure you tapau these items:
Originating from the Javanese who settled down in Malaysia, this all-in-one platter is probably the only thing you need if you’re in a rush to break fast. It comes complete with rice, vegetables and your choice of fried chicken, soy chicken or beef rendang. Some stalls might even throw in fried noodles into the mix! Yassss.
Not sure what this is? Well, it’s basically chicken or beef filling wrapped in (crispy) roti canai and deep fried together. Does that sound delicious or what?!
Yes, you read that right. Especially for all you durian lovers out there, this treat is specially made for you. Choose between siakap or patin fish and watch as it is slathered in tempoyak (fermented durian condiment) and grilled to perfection. Mmm…
Location: SS6/1, Kelana Jaya (Opposite Giant)
3. Bazaar Ramadan USJ 4
Subang peeps, you know what to do! With just the right amount of vendors here, you won’t have to be afraid of getting overwhelmed by too many stalls and being (too) spoilt for choice. Here’s what you have to tapau at this bazaar:
Uncle Jilli’s Jacket Potato
Definitely not the best stall to drop by if you’re on a diet because these potatoes are stuffed with chicken, beef and/or mushroom, topped with a generous amount of gooey cheese sauce. #whatdiet
You can never go wrong with nasi biryani. And, if you’re unsure of which one to choose, we always go with the lamb biryani! Comfort food at its best!
Location: Jalan USJ 4/5
4. Bazaar Ramadan Shah Alam
Located opposite Stadium Melawati, this enormous bazaar is hard to miss. There’s also plenty of parking spaces around so that’s one less thing to worry about (apart from peak hour traffic). Here’s what you need to tapau:
Ayam Golek Mamma Mia
The delicious, top secret marinade for this chicken has people queuing for at least 30 minutes and it’s only available during Ramadan. Additionally, the owner, Pairin Wagiman reportedly sells out 300 whole chickens in just three to four hours. Wah, so laku!
Location: Section 13, Shah Alam
5. Bazaar Ramadan Section 17
With over 100 stalls here, this is yet another bazaar you’ll confirm be able to find something you like. The must-buy foods, as below:
Using a mixture of Indian spices and a recipe passed down from generations before, it’s no surprise that the father-daughter duo manning this stall attracts tons of customers every year. According to The Star, they sell over 300 pieces of murtabak a day.
A lot like the usual Paella Valencia, the paella pans are filled with nasi goreng kampung, bihun goreng Singapore, kway teow goreng, and a lot more. They’re also accompanied by a generous amount of seafood including salted fish, fried shrimp or ayam kicap masak. Sounds like a match made in food heaven!
Location: Jalan 17/1A, Section 17, Selangor
6. Bazaar Ramadan Bangsar
This is quite possibly one of the smallest Ramadan bazaars listed in this article, but don’t let its size fool you! There’s a ton of unique and delicious foods here that will satiate your cravings too. Bookmark these tasty treats for your take-out later:
The Rojabak is what you get when a murtabak and roti jala make a baby. It’s basically a murtabak but instead of a roti canai-like outer skin, it’s wrapped with a layer of roti jala! Innovative!
Made mainly out of pandan and santan (hence the green bottom layer and white top layer), it’s the perfect dessert to savour after all that scrumptious Ramadan food! Also a must-have for many during the month of Ramadan, the Kuih Pelita in Bangsar is one that balances between wobbliness, sweetness, and creaminess just right. It goes well with a chilled glass of soy milk too if you ask us!
Location: Jalan Telawi 1, Bangsar
We’re not sure about you, but we are already starving just looking at this list! What makes these bazaars even more special is the fact that most of the food here are only available during this puasa period, so you wouldn’t want to miss out! Make a date with your friends and visit one (or all) of these bazaars ASAP!
