TTDI

One of KL’s favourites Ramadhan bazaars, this bazaar probably boasts the best good food to number of stalls ratio in KL. While the bazaar isn’t particularly huge, there’s still a lot of variety on offer here – from pisang goreng covered in salted caramel to halal mojitos, there’s something here for everyone.

Section 14, PJ

This neighbourhood bazaar along Jalan 14/28 for PJ’s Section 14 folks is relatively small, but still offers good eats. If you’re still not sure how to get here, Waze to Anjappar Indian Chettinad Restaurant, park along the street and walk straight until you see the pasar near Jaya Shopping Centre or come across people heavily loaded with pink plastic bags of food.

Shah Alam

Located just opposite Stadium Malawati at Padang Dataran Shah Alam in Seksyen 13, this mammoth Ramadhan bazaar is easy to find (just follow the crowd and the smell of grilled meats) with plenty of parking spaces. A word of caution: because of the enormous size of the bazaar, you might be tempted to bite off more than you can chew since pretty much everything looks good.

Dato' Keramat

One of the biggest Ramadhan bazaars in the city, this gritty market offers some of the best buka puasa comfort food. Look out for the lauk stall near the entrance where the lady who runs it is literally surrounded by huge woks of freshly cooked dishes.

Pantai Dalam

The chaotic atmosphere in this maze-like bazaar is punctuated by long queues, vendors yelling, a mixture of smells and smoke filling the air, and a huge amount of people crowding tight walkways. Here, it’s not so much the variety of food you can get but more the quantity as you’ll probably find three stalls selling the same thing. Tip: go to the one with the longest queue.

Kampung Sungai Penchala

Located on a parking lot parallel to the Penchala Link, this Ramadhan bazaar provides a great friendly and kampung atmosphere. While some of the food you’ll find here are the usual favourites, there are also some unique dishes you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
