TTDI Ramadhan Bazaar

it’s always lovely to have a long weekend, ya? however this weekend i decided to take a short break down south, so it meant less exploring of the bazaars about town. but i managed to squeeze in TTDI’s prior to leaving town. Parking remains an issue here, but I got quite lucky in after a few turns.

Ingredients pre-packed in tubs, waiting for orders.

This nasi briyani stall had a looooonng queue but I didn’t join in. And as I was leaving the bazaar, they had already sold out for the day!

Another nasi briyani stall that was doing brisk business. I was keen to try the mutton version but by the time I ordered, they were scooping up the last remaining pieces and I had to settle for the beef version (RM9). Rather aromatic and quite tasty.


One of the most notable additions to this bazaar this year is this roti arab kambing stall. Using the roasted lambs as a “beacon” of sorts, attracting people’s attention before their vision is directed to the stall situated on the inner pavements. This stall also garners a queue but it does move along fairly quickly.

The roti arab is pre-grilled, and according to masak-masak, under the lamb too! so, the drippings adds to the flavour of the bread. Lettuce and cabbage is piled atop the bread, with a generous squeeze of mayo. Then, the chef dices up the meat he sliced from the still roasting lamb. After the diced lamb is placed, it’s then drizzled with their own pepper sauce. At RM10 per sandwich, it’s quite worth getting as they don’t stinge on ingredients. But i did feel that flavour wise, it was lacking somewhat. They were out of mint sauce by the time it was my turn, so maybe that was what could have made the meal.

This putu piring stall was one of the most busy stalls in the bazaar, with the queue stretching quite long. I didn’t have more time to spare so I made a move on. But my curiosity remains piqued…. anyone has tried it?

This stall was selling western food such as this “Daging Shepherd’s Pie” (RM5 each) and spaghetti bolognese. I tried the pie, and I felt it could do with a bit more of the minced meat as there was a lot of mash in there. But tastewise, it was pretty alright.

The cendol vendor was there too. Definitely prefer to buy the freshly made cendol drinks from him then those pre-made ones in with the other colourful drinks. RM2 per pack.

A mixed rice stall also selling grilled fish.

Chicken chop, burgers and fries! Hehe, maybe can give the fast food chains some competition?

Mak Nah’s kuih, which comprises mostly of Kelantanese kuih, including beko and akok.

I found the name of this rice stall rather interesting. Hehe. Wonder what the story behind the name is??

Murtabak stall here also selling roti arab with beef.

This stall fries Char Kway Teow fresh upon order.

  1. it’s love & hate affair with Ramadan bazaar… apart from the variety of foods on offer, parking is a nightmare.. and I spent a good 30 min just to secure a parking in TTDI but not to buy food.. my daughter was having music class nearby!

    I like Kelantanese kuih-muih, esp those golden-hued, sweet ones made from duck yolks. Jala Mas, Bunga tanjung, etc.

  4. Ah, now I know what the roti arab kambing looks like after it is assembled. Wonder what is missing from it. Good to see that you’re making an attempt to visit the bazaars.

  5. […] is smaller this round, maybe because it’s been shifted to span across one street instead of last year’s L shape stretch. Still, the crowd was […]
