PJ Section 14 Ramadhan Bazaar

This is going to be a near photos post only of the Section 14 Ramadhan Bazaar in PJ. The bazaar is smaller than I expected, as it stretches down one street, and somewhat around the neighborhood playground but there are many interesting offerings here, including 3-4 stalls of kelantanese fare, seafood bakar (instead of only ikan) and some famous regulars.

Famous Mohd Kassim Ismail’s Penang Popiah Basah with its long queue. Habis by the time we were there (around 5pm). Making these babies was quite easy peasy for him; slather the sauces on the thin skin lined in a row, pile on the vegetables, egg, fried shallots and one single prawn. Wrap it all up and voila!

This Putu Piring stall was also very popular, with another queue. Not as long as the popiah one, but still a bit of a wait.


A stall selling sweet desserts and Bubur Lambuk. Quite a good crowd also.

A Seafood Bakar Stall in front of the playground. They were pouring in the cockles and I was so tempted. But it was rather hot and smoky so we decided to walk around instead of waiting.

Otak-otak at 50cents each.

The Ayam Panggang Stall sold not only the wings and thighs, but the gizzards, livers, hearts and behinds too. All doused generously in the sweet and mildly spicy sauce.

Pak Lah Murtabak. Looks good but I wasn’t up for Murtabak today.


The item I came here for – Pecal / Gado2. No pink crackers, but nice assortment of blanched vegetables including bean sprouts, kangkung, tapioca leaves, cucumber and tofu. The peanut sauce was a bit watery imo, and somewhat spicier than I expected.

Seafood Bakar also by Dr Grill Catering. Upon ordering, you’re given a number. Good system but I didn’t have to wait for my kerang (yes, ended up getting it here coz it was cooked!). It was ok lah, but I thought it was a little bland as none of the cockles opened up during cooking to soak in the sambal. No difference to eating boiled cockles.

Various kuih including the Kuih Bakar/Kemboja, Kuih Ketayap, curry puffs, stuffed tofu etc.


Another kuih stall that sold Kuih Batik! The kuih batik was not as nice as the ones I’m used to back in Sarawak as it was so soft and “un-sweetened” but good enough lah.

So moral of the story is, don’t judge the book by its cover. The bazaar here may be small, but sure packs a lot of goodies. Can visit!

    Thank you for featuring the pasar ramadhan fair. It really brought back fond memories of it. I used to work at Section 14 and to live at SS18. I really wish I can go back now…
