Malaysians have missed the hustle and bustle of Ramadan bazaars, which were regrettably short-lived last year when MCO was enforced midway through Ramadan and was not allowed to operate in 2020 owing to COVID-19 regulations. This year, the vivid, energetic, and delectable bazaars have returned with traditional buka puasa meals, snacks, and thirst-quenching drinks. With that, Glitz is telling you all the best bazaar Ramadan spots around KL and Selangor that you HAVE to check out for your next iftar meal!

1. Stadium Shah Alam Ramadan Bazaar

The Stadium Shah Alam Ramadan Bazaar, which is one of the largest in town, is revered by the people of Shah Alam. It’s a foodie’s paradise, located in Padang Dataran Shah Alam in Seksyen 13, with vendors selling everything from nasi itik to BBQ chicken wings, oozing cheese roti john, and murtabak Singapura. The mouthwatering smell might be devouring you to sway but save it for buka puasa!

2. TTDI Ramadan Bazaar

This is a popular choice among individuals who reside in the Taman Tun Dr Ismail neighbourhood or nearby neighbourhoods. The TTDI Ramadan Bazaar is located along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad and serves delicious cheeseburgers, apam balik, kambing golek, pulut udang, and murtabak. Don’t miss the renowned popiah basah booth, which has been operating for more than 20 years! You’ll almost certainly notice the line before you notice the stall!

3. Ramadan Bazaar Seksyen 14, PJ

The Ramadan market at Seksyen 14 is one of the oldest in the area, having served Petaling Jaya residents for years despite having to relocate several times. Other vendors serving seafood bakar, ayam panggang, and roasted lamb are all highly popular – the bazaar may be smaller than others in town, but it’s certainly filled with fantastic cuisine!

4. Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman Bazaar

The Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman Ramadan Bazaar is another renowned bazaar in KL, stretching out proudly in front of the historic Sultan Abdul Samad building. This massive bazaar has over 300 vendors selling Ramadan favourites like kuih, ayam percik, ikan bakar, nasi campur, mee goreng, and more. From the minute you enter the bazaar, you’ll be bombarded with tantalising sights and fragrances. Oh, and if you want to buka puasa before heading home, there are also tables and seating places here.

5. Kampung Baru Ramadan Bazaar

The Kampung Baru Ramadan Bazaar is another prominent one in Klang Valley, set against the background of the Petronas Twin Towers. The bubur lambuk, a comfort meal prepared beautifully in the traditional manner and guaranteed to make you feel warm inside, is one of the greatest sellers here. A delicious bowl of bubur is the way to go during iftar if you’re looking for something easy and soothing!

6. Bukit Bintang Ramadan Bazaar

The Bukit Bintang Ramadan Bazaar is impossible to miss while you’re in the neighbourhood since it’s directly in front of the landmark Bukit Bintang McDonald’s shop. They have all the classics like nasi briyani, nasi lemak, roti john, and more, despite their small size. We’d recommend using public transportation if you can, as it’s a bustling location that tends to get clogged in the evening. The Bukit Bintang Monorail and MRT station are just steps away from the market, making it quite convenient!

7. Masjid India Ramadan Bazaar

For iftar, how about some delectable Indian-Muslim cuisine? The Ramadan bazaar at Masjid India is next to the Masjid India Mosque and is noted for its delectable Indian-Muslim food, as well as all of the traditional specialities. The restaurant serves everything from tandoori chicken to putu mayam and will not let you down with its lively atmosphere. There’s also a covered area with kiosks offering clothing, toys, biscuits, and other items!

8. Wangsa Maju Ramadan Bazaar

The Wangsa Maju ramadan bazaar is incredibly accessible and will thrill you with its rows and rows of vendors. It is located within walking distance of the Wangsa Maju LRT station. Put on some comfortable shoes and prepare to walk a lot; there are a lot of stalls offering similar items, so take your time and do your survey before deciding what to buy! Juicy ayam percik, creamy Laksa Johor, and distinctive Murtabak Maggi are all popular dishes.

9. Taman Melawati Ramadan Bazaar

The Taman Melawati Ramadan Bazaar is one of the largest bazaars in Klang Valley, with a vast parking lot. With rows and rows of vendors selling everything from kuih muih to roti bom, ayam percik, nasi lemak, tauhu bakar, spaghetti, and more, you’ll be spoilt for choice. One of our favourites here is the nasi kerabu stand – make sure you come by earlier to avoid a huge line, stalls start setting up from as early as 4PM. If there are no parking spaces available along the road, park at the Melawati Mall and walk across!

10. Bangsar Ramadan Bazaar

The ramadan bazaar in Bangsar is the ideal neighbourhood bazaar, located about a 15-minute walk from the Bangsar LRT Station. While it isn’t as large as some of the others on our list, they offer all of the classics and are perfect if you simply want to tapao something for dinner without having to go too far or becoming overwhelmed by the choices. Putu piring, grilled seafood, and ayam percik are said to be popular!
