Ramadan Bazar Kuala Lumpur Bangsar Telawi 4 JK1516

Ramadan-Bazar-Kuala-Lumpur-Bangsar-Telawi-4

Visited the Ramadan Bazar at Bangsar, Jalan Telawi 4 this evening which is one of my old haunts. I used to come to the Sunday pasar malam here, and of course, the Ramadan bazar during the Muslim holy month.

I estimate that there are about 50 to 60 food stalls here, a bit smaller scale than before but still attracting a good crowd. The bazaar used to take up two streets but now it's only one street as the area is hemmed in by new shops and eateries.

Let's take a walk together and see some of the Ramadan food stalls here in Bangsar.

There's nasi briyani - the dum version where the half cooked meat (spice marinated chicken or mutton) and spice infused basmati rice are finished together in an air tight pot.

The ubiquitous murtabak - where minced spiced chicken, beef or mutton is folded between layers of bread and fried till crispy outside on a sizzling flat cast iron griddle.

Samurai ayam percik :-D

Ayam percik originally from Kelantan is large meaty pieces of spice marinated chicken grilled till the edges are charred and eaten slathered with a creamy sauce of coconut milk infused with spices.

The traditional ayam golek is replaced by the modern portable glass encased rotisserie. I miss the old smokey style of grilling chicken on an open rotating spit over charcoal embers.

Roti John Black with charcoal loaf. Something which I am seeing for the first time.

While many like to try something new, others prefer the familiar home cooked style nasi campur (rice with a variety of different side dishes).

Roti Jala or net bread eaten with a curry.

Putu Bambu - rice cakes stuffed and steamed in bamboo hollow and eaten with shredded coconut pulp and brown sugar. There's a choice of plain rice cake or infused with pandan essence which looks light green.

There are a few drinks stalls. I didn't see any katira drink (popular in Johor) at the Bangsar Ramadan bazar.

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)
