Best Ramadan Bazaars in Klang Valley

Written by Updated ago

It’s that time of the year again. The month of Ramadan has finally descended upon us all and with it, we welcome the comforting knowledge that the usual Ramadan bazaars will be unfolding its colourful umbrellas and presenting oh-so-glorious food to us. Regardless of whether you are fasting or not, everybody loves good-ole-Ramadan bazaars. Everyone gets a chance to be let off work early so working moms who don’t have time to cook for their families can just take away a few meals here, students staying in hostels can buy their favourite rendang and foreigners lucky enough to visit Malaysia this time of the year can have a taste of Malaysian culture in one complete package. We have covered the halal buffets plus the Ramadan buffets previously. And since there are about 2 weeks left of Ramadan, so why don’t you make a to-do list for the must-visit Ramadan bazaars according to this list? But, a word of advice, make your way from 4 to 5pm to these bazaars to avoid disappointment!

    Section 13, Stadium Shah AlamPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    If there is one word to describe Section 13’s bazaar, that word will be “extensive”. Aside from the fact that it is situated near Stadium Malawati, the bazaar is also arguably the king of bazaars in Selangor with a total of about 200 stalls. The magnitude of its size is enough to earn comparisons with most prominent Bazaars. You can find almost every single kind of buka puasa food imaginable in this bazaar, from Ayam Golek to the rare appearance of Satar (a sort of grilled fish paste) in a Ramadan Bazaar. So much is going on at this bazaar that your eyes will feel like rolling to the back of your head in order to view everything. After all, hearing about this from one source isn't enough, as the bazaar has also garnered much attention from an Astro Awani viewers' poll.
    Tips

    Come before 5pm as the whole of Shah Alam will flood the place by 5.15pm

    Things to expect

    An experience that is worth the journey if you live far away.

    Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) Ramadan BazaarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Probably one of the biggest bazaars in Klang Valley, this particular market in TTDI is host to some exceptional listings of food, some of which, can only be obtained in the holy month of Ramadan. Take for example, the Murtabak Maggi. On a regular day, this particular food is practically non-existent, so bazaar-goers should count their blessings and make their way over here for the Murtabak Maggi. Other famous stalls that are must-visits, especially for newcomers will be the Popiah Power stall and the Mie Cord Char Kway Teow. Located along the stretch of Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad, this bazaar is pretty hard to miss what with the extreme level of crowds after 5.00pm. However, due to the massive traffic jams, be very cautious and make your way early!
    Tips

    Queues often shows that the particular stall is popular

    Things to expect

    Tad bit expensive prices compared to other places

    Best with

    Kampung Baru Ramadan BazaarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Jalan Raja Alang, Kampung Baru is home to the biggest Ramadan bazaar in Kuala Lumpur and probably the biggest on this list. Its reputation contradicts the name of its location as there is nothing baru or new about this place. Our parents have probably been to this place at least once in their youth so there is no doubting that there must be a whole lot going on at the bazaar. Well, firstly, the road is not closed off to vehicles unlike the typical market, so expect a lot of jumping out of the way when cars come in honking profusely at the shoppers. Secondly, there will be a massive crowd that cannot seem to be avoided, even if you show up at 4pm. But, alas, despite all those potential setbacks, we assure you that this bazaar warrants at least a one time visit due to the endless variety of food fare. You can discover everything here, from traditional Malay food to rare desserts. Think of it as Doraemon’s magic pocket for Malaysian food. Kampung Baru’s Bazaar has a major plus point: you can even find some very rare Indonesian cuisine here. Coming here is like getting a lesson on Malaysian culture as every single food from every single state is being sold, such as the Kelantanese Putih Naga (White Dragon), Perak’s Rendang Tok (spicy beef paste), and Negeri Sembilan’s Asam Pedas.
    Tips

    Might be difficult to care for children here.

    Things to expect

    A festival on its own! So many food, so little time.

    Taman Melawati Ramadan BazaarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    You’ll find a lot of seafood here in this bazaar, from grilled to fried ones. Sure, the place is a little bit on the packed side, having relocated almost 4 times in the past 5 years but there is a certain fun in navigating between hordes of people and stalls in those narrow walkways. Taman Melawati is a pretty friendly neighbourhood, with the same familiar faces and stalls seen during this season. It’s probably the really tight bond between the customers and the hawkers that keep this market going strong despite relocating multiple times. Local celebrities can also be seen manning their businesses with gusto and if you are the lucky ones, you might be able to squeeze in your face when the camera crews come over for filming. Wonders like the grilled squid stall will melt even the iciest of hearts with the seductive aroma of seafood sizzling on the grill. Truly a joyful place to be with quirky people and amazing food.
    Tips

    Hard to maneuver in the crowd.

    Being the smallest Ramadan bazaar on this list, one would have thought that such a tiny bazaar would not be able to measure up to the giants in TTDI and Section 13. Oh how wrong you are if you actually thought that way. The best saying for this little baby bazaar is that “good things come in small packages”. Situated behind Bangsar’s mosque; gorgeous colours in the rainbow spectrum line up the beverage stalls, immediately inducing saliva for those who are fasting. There is even a unique assortment of food such as the Portuguese seafood fare in one stall and Portuguese Ikan Bakar in another. This bazaar would be a great visit if patrons are looking for a market that does not stretch on for miles and keeps things to a minimum.
    Tips

    A good tip will be to park in Bangsar Village’s paid parking lot.

    Things to expect

    Pretty colours! Rainbow jellies, juices, syrupy drinks fill up this bazaar.

    If you’re brave enough to go through the traffic jam leading up to this bazaar in the middle of the city or if you have been let off work early, then head on to the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman Ramadan Bazaar. The liveliest and most happening bazaar on this list, everything can be found here, from clothing, food, drinks to even, snacks. The food stalls here in JTAR showcases some of the most popular national dishes such as asam laksa, spring rolls, Hokkien fried noodles as well as other special celebratory foods. There are even makeshift kitchens complete with woks and a portable stove for cooking dishes on the spot. Definitely a must-visit if you’re from outside of Malaysia and looking forward for an all-in-one packaged view of Malaysian culture.
    Tips

    Spot the singing disabled band, they’re almost always around, serenading the crowd.

    Things to expect

    A LOT of people from different walks of life. So skip the open-toed footwear if you don’t want your feet to end up squashed.

    Best with

    The stalls selling serunding which is spiced chicken or beef floss.

    Kelana Jaya Ramadan BazaarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Located just opposite the Giant Mini Market in Jalan SS6/1, Kelana Jaya, this particular bazaar is fairly easy to find and famous for having more than 6 different stalls selling grilled items. Since we heard bucketloads of praises for the sambal ikan cencaru stall, we headed to that one first and was impressed with the owner’s explanation and service. The fact that he gave us extra sambal didn’t hurt either. The bazaar has expanded to a larger number this year, probably to accomodate Kelana Jaya’s increasing population. Visiting here will be worth it just to see a stall which was creatively branded as Popiah FAM as a nod to the Malaysian Football Association. However, the food here may be a little pricier than the other on the list, but fret not, lighter pockets almost always mean fuller bellies. 😉
    Tips

    To avoid parking frustrations, we suggest visitors to park in Giant’s parking lots. Walking the extra distance is much easier than paying a few hundred ringgit for scratches on your car.

    Things to expect

    Basically, a hometown filled with grilled food.

    Best with

    Popiah FAM, sambal ikan cencaru stall, and the RM1 samosa.
