Ramadhan bazaars: Kampung Baru

What to get from the Kampung Baru Ramadhan bazaar

Previously on Jalan Raja Muda Musa just down the road from Kampung Baru LRT sation, the Kampung Baru bazaar has moved to Jalan Raja Alang (near Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru), where the entire road is closed off from cars. You can still find some stalls and vendors along Jalan Raja Muda Musa, but the real action happens on Jalan Raja Alang: it's a long (covered!) stretch of stalls selling everything from murtabak, grilled lamb, roti John, kuih and more. Make a beeline for murtabak Singapore.

Nasi dagang and nasi kerabu
Kampung Baru is known for its east coast cuisine, and at this stall, you can have nasi dagang or nasi kerabu with ayam percik, daging bakar, fish curry and more.

Roti Goreng McGyver
We’re not sure what association the popular ‘80s TV character has with this deep fried bread stuffed with meat but it was enough to catch our attention. A similar concept to the roti goreng variations you see at most bazaars, these McGyver (sic) babies spent just enough time in the pan to come out nice and crispy. What sets it apart is the filling. Available in sambal sardine, chicken and beef black pepper, we went for the beef and chicken and here’s what we think: it sure can fix anything. Except maybe your cholesterol level.

The Roti Goreng McGyver stall is located away from the main bazaar on Jalan Raja Muda Musa. 


Murtabak Singapore
Murtabak Singapore is becoming increasingly popular at bazaars, and this particular stall attracts a crowd hungry for pieces of the savoury pancake generously stuffed with minced beef, egg and onions.  


Kebab kukus
We can't get enough of sandwich-type snacks, especially when it's a hotdog bun stuffed with stir-fried chicken or beef. As a finishing touch, the bun is steamed for extra fluffiness. Get in line. 


Rojak pasembur and cendol
For a starter salad at buka time, pasembur comes close (it's also a lot better than plain old salad). Plus, cendol acts as both a drink and dessert.
