Local street markets also known as bazaar Ramadhans are as much a part of the holy month in
Located smack dab in the middle of Bukit Bintang, navigate your way through plumes of smoke billowing from ayam percik on the grill to get your hands on some fragrant nasi briyani and charcoal-roasted lamb at the Bukit Bintang Ramadhan bazaar.

As one of the biggest markets around the area, patrons from all over flock to the TTDI Ramadhan bazaar to sample a wide array of traditional Ramadhan fare. With hits like nasi tomato, nasi hujan, fresh lemang with rendang along with a whole array of kuihs and roti johns, you’ll be sure to go home with packets upon packets of delicious dishes to feast on.
One thing you’ll immediately notice at Kelana Jaya’s Ramadhan bazaar is the vast array of drink stands selling fruit juices of all kinds. Apart from that, there is no shortage of char kuey teow and dim sum stalls for great halal Chinese fare.

And who could forget sweets like the classic kek batik as well as the Western variety of cakes.
The Section 17 bazaar is easy to find, located right opposite Jaya One just off the main road. There are no twists and turns here, just a long row of stalls selling mouth-watering food one after another. Apart from the usual servings of murtabaks and lauk, this bazaar is known for the budgeree (curried pineapple) which goes for RM1 per piece. Parking can be a nightmare but it might be less of a headache to park at Jaya One and cross the road.
The dense Masjid
India area gets even more
crowded during Ramadhan with rows of tents extending as far as the eye can see.
Stalls selling food can be found scattered among the clothing and knick-knack
stalls. In the narrow Lorong Masjid India 4, you’ll find a
treasure trove of nasi kukus (RM5), sweet paus (RM1 each), samosas, and
Serunding is also a hot commodity in this pasar as well as a touch of Indian cuisine with a putu mayam stall. With stands dotting the five foot way, the chaotic atmosphere of the area only adds to its charm.
Found along the main hub that is Jalan Raja Alang, the Kampung Baru Ramadhan bazaar might very well be the largest in the city. You can be sure to find something here to satisfy your palate from delicious kebabs to scrumptious murtabaks. Another dish to take note of is the bubur lambuk (porridge) in addition to a variety of Ramadhan cuisine from all over
Parking is virtually non-existent so public transport is the best way to go.
Bandar Tun Razak
Bandar Tun Razak comes alive every evening during Ramadhan as Cheras folks come in droves to sample the delicious food on offer. Fresh and unsweetened sugar cane juice (RM5) is the perfect partner to wind down as the heat of the day subsides as you stroll down the stalls.
If you love roti john, go long with Din’s foot-long sandwich coming in at RM4. If not, whet your appetite with some putu bambu Teluk Intan (RM2 for four) as you zero down on all other quality Ramadhan delicacies waiting to be snapped up for dinner.
Stadium Shah Alam
The Shah Alam Ramadhan bazaar ranks up top with Kampung Baru as one of the largest markets in and around the
. Occupying the car park of
Kompleks Sukan Shah Alam, the bazaar catches the Shah Alam crowds as well as
patrons spilling over from the Subang and Klang regions. Nasi goreng ayam
berempah is a mega steal, where you get a hefty piece of juicy fried chicken to
go with the omelette-wrapped fried rice for only RM5! Klang Valley
However, it seems the most popular choice here is the Ikan Bakar Bersambal with a wide variety of fish priced from RM5 to RM30.
For burger lovers, make a game out of hunting down Abang Burn Burger Bakar in the maze of stalls for their Burger-GAR!
This new Ramadhan bazaar is located right in front of the 3K
Inn & Sports Complex
in Subang. Most of the vendors at the bazaar were once part of Subang Jaya’s
largest bazaar at SS18 which was famous for their chicken wings and murtabaks
as well as roti jang, a variant of the regular roti john. While the new
location has considerably less stalls, it’s nonetheless very happening and
serves some seriously delicious foods, from traditional Malay cuisine to a
smattering of Western and Chinese stalls for a delicious and varied buka puasa
A humble pasar in the housing area near the newly refurbished Jaya Supermarket, the Section 14 bazaar mainly caters to visitors who live around the neighbourhood and workers from the commercial district nearby. The best known stall here is the
(RM1.20 per roll) with a long line of customers waiting to buy the slightly
sweet popiah by the rolls.
Another long queue can be found at the tepung pelita stand. The Ramadhan market is also home to several lauk and murtabak (prices range from RM4 – RM10) stalls.
The Telawi area is home to Bangsar’s Ramadhan bazaar. With stalls setting up on a short stretch of road next to Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar, the market is dense and crowded like its Sunday pasar malam but choke-full of great eats from nasi kerabu (RM3) to sotong bakar (RM10). If you’d like something to go with your usual kuihs, try their coconut and teh tarik-flavoured ice cream (a steal at RM3.90 for three scoops). Smooth, creamy, and sweet, it’s the perfect way to break fast.
The highlight of the bazaar was probably the ayam percik (RM4.50); tender, juicy, and dripping with saucy goodness.
One unique dish that you’ll find in Melawati is the ayam tempayan (RM18 for a whole chicken). The entire bird is hung on the sides of a heated clay pot similar to a tandoor. The skin was nicely seasoned although the flesh turned out rather bland but was balanced by a sweet and peppery sauce.
The most popular stall is probably Botak Ikan Bakar, famous for his grilled lobster which is entirely dependent on availability of stock. But fear not, staples like fish, cockles, squid, and prawns are still on the menu (prices range from RM13-RM50).
