The holy month of Ramadan is upon us again and during this time, Ramadan Bazaars are set up in various locations offering buka puasa (breaking of fast) fare. Since moving to KL, we have without fail visited the Ramadan Bazaar at Bandar Tun Hussein Onn in Selangor (next to Carrefour).
The Ramadan Bazaars officially started their business today, and we were more impressed than ever at the quality and vast variety of food on offer there. It is indeed lovely walking around, soaking up the smells and sight of local, traditional Malaysian food.
Deep fried quail... finger licking good!
There are more stalls set up this year, and the crowd on the first day was crazy! Since we were slightly early, we managed to snap photos easily but come 6pm, it was hard to move around the place. The vendors this year are super friendly, all posing for photos for me. My favorite stalls were those with on-site cooking such as ayam percik, ayam golek (those chicken on rotisseries), satay, kuay teow goreng, ikan bakar, murtabak, roti john and chicken wings!
We were also happy to see lemang on sale (just one stall) here this year, finally! I see that most stalls still don't put up a sign with prices, but good job to those who do. Just a rough guide, ayam percik/golek usually costs RM18 each, satay RM0.60 per stick, chicken wings RM1.80 each and kuih-muih is 40sen each.
Anyway, here are the photos I snapped at the Ramadan Bazaar, do visit it if you get a chance - it's a great way of sampling lots of different Malaysian food under one carpark. ;)
