Ramadhan Bazaar by Bus to Larkin Stadium in Johor Bahru

Ramadhan Bazaar

This is my third Ramadhan bazaar visit this year, and this time, I took public bus (SMRT 950 and 170) from Woodlands Bus Interchange to Larkin Bus Station.

Ramadhan Bazaar

I boarded bus 950 at Woodlands Bus Interchange. After clearing Singapore and Malaysia immigration, I boarded bus 170 at the JB CIQ. Bus 170 will take us to Larkin bus station which is a 10-15 minutes ride. Larkin stadium is another 10-15 minutes walk from Larkin bus station. Ask for directions when you are at Larkin bus station. To return to Singapore, just back track and take the buses in reverse order.

Like the Ramadhan bazaars at Plaza Angsana and Pandan that I have visited, the bazaar at Larkin also has plenty of interesting food on offer.

Let's just take a sampling of what we can find at Larkin Stadium Ramadhan bazaar.

This delicious looking dish is known as Roti Pita Kebab.

Mobile barbecue fish ball satay on the back of a Honda cub. Something that I've not seen before.

The fish balls are homemade in Kelantan and delivered by bus everyday to Larkin bus station. That's a very neat arrangement!

These are Sata, a traditional dish from the eastern state of Terengganu, consisting of spiced fish meat wrapped in banana leaves and grilled over charcoal. (Thanks to Laura Benjamin for the information.)

Nasi kukus originally from Kelantan is getting very popular in Johor. Frying chicken for the nasi kukus.

  2. Hi Pacetone, the hawkers are mostly ready about 4:30pm onwards. Dining areas are available at the bazaars at Plaza Angsana and Pandan (near Carrefour), but there are no dining areas in Larkin.

  4. Hi, FYI, the delicious looking dish is Pita bread kebab or in Malay it is called roti Pita kebab, while the "rice dumpling" you mentioned is Sata, a traditional dish from the Malaysian state of Terengganu, consisting of spiced fish meat wrapped in banana leaves and cooked on a grill.

    It is a type of Malaysian fish cake, or otak-otak. The main ingredients of sata are grated coconut, sardines, ginger, onions and chillies.(wiki)

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
