Ramadhan Bazaar near Carrefour, Pandan, Johor Bahru

This is my second Ramadhan bazaar this year because once a year is never enough. Actually, I am not sure if twice or how many times is enough for me. I never tire of Ramadhan bazaars because the sights, sounds, smells and atmosphere are always such wonderful treats for all our senses.

I doubled my walking pace towards the bazaar when I saw bellowing smoke and smelled the aroma of roasting chicken over charcoal.

The popiah stall where I could hear the crackers breaking when the lady wraps the spring rolls. 

Foot long roti John by the cheerful crew.

Satay ready for the charcoal grill.

Juicy kebabs roasting on the charcoal grill.

Smoking towers of yummy barbecue chicken wings and kebabs.

Lemang, traditional glutinous rice and coconut milk cooked in bamboo with wood fire.

Kambing (mutton) soup where you can choose any part of the lamb you like.

Colourful, mouth watering nasi briyani.

Freshly barbecued quails basking in the afternoon sun.

Ayam percik is a favourite from the peninsular east coast.

Freshly grilled stingrays or ikan pari painted red with a thick coat of sambal chili.

Listen to the sizzle of grilling fish.

Frying fish keropok or crackers.

Putu bambu, traditional cake made with ground rice and coconut in bamboo.

Popular staple murtabak.

Plenty of pretty cakes to tempt people with sweet tooth.

Dazzling colours and endless varieties of delicious traditional home cooked dishes. 

Sweet icy drinks in multi colours.
