It’s that time of the year again where Malaysians flock to the Ramadhan bazaars. But with so many out there, which one should you go to? We’ve listed down the top Ramadhan bazaars you must visit below, along with their must try delicacies!
Bazaar Ramadhan Seksyen 13, Shah Alam Stadium
This is perhaps one of the largest Ramadhan Bazaars in the Klang Valley. It’s located at the parking lot of the Shah Alam Stadium, so parking won’t be a problem here. You can expect to find an array of sweet options from the traditional like seri muka to modern desserts like crème caramel and cupcakes. The ayam golek and ayam tempayan are not to be missed here, with the latter literally cooked in a tempayan at the bazaar! Other dishes you can get here are Nasi Ambeng, Roti John Cheese, Sup Gearbox and many more. Go early because this bazaar attracts a large crowd!
Bazaar Ramadhan Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur
For authentic, traditional Malay delicacies, there’s no better bazaar in Klang Valley than Kampung Baru’s Ramadhan bazaar. For rice meals, try the nasi arab and nasi kukus If you’re after something aside from rice, try the Roti Mcgyver (highly recommended!) and the popia sambal. For something sweet, look out for seri muka, akok and the badak berendam. This bazaar is located along Jalan Raja Alang.
Bazaar Ramadhan Kelana Jaya
If you want to be spoilt for choice, this is a bazaar you should not miss! You’ll also notice smoke in the air and that’s because there are a number of stalls selling ikan bakar, satar and otak-otak. Want a big and unique meal? Then look for the stall selling nasi ambang, a dish which is a combination of rice, fried chicken, noodles, vegetables and salted fish. For sweet treats, you will also find assorted kuih here such as Nona Manis, Tepung Pelita, Akok, Apam Manis and more! This bazaar IS located along the road of SS6/3 Kelana Jaya.
Bazaar Ramadhan Section 17, Petaling Jaya
Although this Ramadhan bazaar is located at a residential area in Section 17, it has plenty to offer! If you’re a fan of Roti John, the one here is famous, just look out for the queue to find the stall. Other than that, the barbequed chicken wings and satay is a must try here! The kuih options are not many, but it’s the quality that’s important and we can assure you it’s tasty. Look for the stall which sells the kuih keria and seri muka which is a must have!
Parking tip: Park at Jaya One which is across the street for hassle free parking. Word of caution, on Tuesdays there is a night market and it is located at the same location of the Bazaar Ramadhan. So prepare for a bigger crowd if you go on Tuesdays as it gets really busy.
Bazaar Ramadhan Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI)
This bazaar is located at the same place where the TTDI night market is located on Sundays along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 2 and 3. When at this bazaar, go for the tepung pelita, nasi mandy, ayam percik, rendang, lemang and ikan bakar. The tauhu sumedang here is also worth a mention and you should also try the assorted kuih at putu corner and the kebab skewers!
