Ramadhan bazaars: Wangsa Maju

What to get from the Wangsa Maju Ramadhan bazaar

Written by
Time Out KL editors

Located all along the street leading to Aeon Wangsa Maju and accessible from the overhead bridge at Wangsa Maju LRT station, this bazaar is long and seemingly endless so be in the mood for lots of walking. A lot of the stalls here sell more or less the same items so it’s hard to figure out which you should choose. Surveying the stalls in terms of food preparation and technique should help, and try not to settle for the first stall you see because chances are, there’ll be another selling the same. Here are some stalls we like.

RECOMMENDED: Ramadhan bazaar food guide

Putu piring
Putu bambu has become more popular over the years but we prefer the steamed rice cake in piring form for an even distribution of gula Melaka. Speaking of gula Melaka, you really want putu piring that has its sugar-to-rice-flour ratio just right.

Dim sum
It’s rare that you’ll see a dim sum stall in a Ramadhan bazaar.  We went for the chicken siew mai and fungus siew mai.

Ayam percik
TTDI may get all the love when it comes to ayam percik, but another of our favourites is the one at Wangsa Maju. Ayam percik is prone to dryness, but the chicken here is surprisingly tender while the smoky percik sauce strikes a good balance between sweet and spicy. If you're heading in the direction of Aeon, this long ayam percik stall will be on your left.

Laksa Johor
Although this store sells other dishes like sup gearbox and sup tulang, we went with the laksa Johor. The gravy is thick and rich, although a bit too spicy.

Roti John Cheese
Wangsa Maju has no shortage of roti John stalls, but this stall stands out for its long queue. The Cheezy BBQ is said to be a favourite, but ours had very little cheese so it's good to ask for more. Other combinations include garlic sauce, thousand island and even tuna if you're so inclined.
