Ramadhan Bazaar 2013
The Ramadhan (Ramadan) fasting month falls in summer time.
Bazaar has becoming a good marketplace for Muslims and non-Muslims to scout for food in the evening.
We visited one of the bazaar nearby and look for the usual food choices.
I saw a few stalls selling roast duck and dimsum.
The rest are usual food options such as Roti John, mutabak.
The choices of drink have extended to To Fu Fa, Lin Chee Kang, Sea Coconut. Nothing beats the traditional rose syrup and Cendol.
One of the unique additive is ‘sticky rice’ in the drink.
Grilled chicken is one of the popular dish, with variety of sauces.
I got back with BBQ chicken smell on my shirt.
The sizzling grilled fish looked very tempting. It is advisable to take a look at the clarity of the fish eyes (before it was cooked beyond recognizable). You may find some stalls offer fresher fish.
Another attractive aspect of the food bazaar are the colourful food.
The blue colour drink is "blue lemon”. Not my cup of tea.
If you are overwhelmed by the high energy food, you can go for salad or tofu.
I would say large majority of the food are either fried or grilled.
Now I have reason to exercise (so that I have excuse to eat more).
If you are visiting Malaysia on the first time, then it would be good experience to visit Ramadhan Bazaar to have a short course of local snacks and cuisines.
