even though the fasting month has commenced well into its 3rd week now, i haven’t had the chance to visit any ramadhan bazaar until last weekend, thanks to a bout of sickness, and then some grey and wet skies. anyhow i have been wanting to visit the Kelana Jaya ramadhan bazaar for years now and have finally made my way there. and boy, how I wished I visited earlier once I saw what it had to offer!
Deft hands making putu bambu with the sticky, sweet gula melaka (palm sugar) filling.
Various types of drinks from teh bunga, barley, soya bean, orange juice to the colourful cordial ones.
Nasi Ambang from Mr. Nasi Ambang at RM4.50 per pack. More commonly found in the state of Johor with its Javanese origins, it’s starting to gain popularity here too. With a piece of ayam masak merah, deep fried salted fish, coconut serunding, vermicelli fried with potatoes and tofu, it was really the complete meal. But as this was pre-packed, the food was a tad cold.
As we walked down the lane, we saw another stall selling Nasi Ambang/Ambeng. They pack it upon ordering, so everything was still warm when we got back and unpacked the lot. At RM7, it’s pricier than the other stall, but still worthwhile considering that a whole deep fried chicken thigh is part of the pack. Along with it, half an egg, some blanced greens, grated coconut, tempe and the like.
This stall from Restoran D’Hati was selling all types of nasi with various dishes. Decided to try the nasi kerabu which was not bad, though the fish crackers were too soft by the time I put them in my mouth.
Was so happy to see satar! The cone shaped fish cake like snacks were selling at RM3 for 4, or RM5 for 8 pieces here. The man manning the stall was friendly and always smiling which is so welcoming.
Pak Tua’s roti bom were the mini type, and selling at RM0.50 each. Accompanied with the very thin curry, this was not as memorable as I hoped it would be.
This reminded me of Spanish paella being cooked. Only this was M’sian noodles being fried.
Loads of grilled fish, and there’s a stall selling cencaru sambal too.
Roasted ducks, chicken wings.
Curly, spring shaped potato chips, with different flavours from cheese to tom yam! And of course, various soup noodles and laksa are pre-packed and waiting to be sold.
To end the meal on a sweet note, jellies of different colours, i.e. different flavours are selling quick. There’s also stalls selling different types of bubur , and even taiwanese bubble tea!
