Ramadhan Food Market 2009 at Shah Alam
Shah Alam’s Ramadhan Food Market is the largest Ramadhan food market I have ever been to and if I am not wrong, it is the largest in Malaysia. Correct me if I am wrong. Haha! This is an alternative choice if you are looking for good and cheap or I would say affordable Malay food other than fancy Ramadhan buffets. Ayam Golek. You can either have the chickens roasted using charcoal or gas. I assume that charcoal roasted chickens taste better compared to those using gas. However, as most parts of the chicken were burned, we decided to try the ones roasted using gas. They look sooo much better. One bird cost RM15 and half a bird is RM8. You will get RM1 discount for taking the whole bird. Ayam Goreng Berempah. Pieces of chickens were marinated, wrapped with pandan leaves and fried until its crispy. Ayam Percik. The price for a piece is RM3 and RM5 for two pieces. The more you buy, the cheaper it gets. Satay. Look for those that are a bit burned. They tastes a lot better. But becareful not to over eat it. Its RM0.60 per stick. More chickens! Nasi Ayam. Grab ‘n Go packed ahead chicken rice. Alright, enough introduction for the chickens, lets look at the others instead. Next, Nasi Briyani. Fried mee, kuey teow, etc… Fried fish also aka Ikan Bakar in Malay. Lovely malay couple selling Sotong Bakar. As this is the only stall selling sotong bakar, I am sure that you will not have any trouble searching for your favourite sotong snack. Cucur Udang aka Prawn Crackers are also available here. You can either have it fresh here or crackers packed in plastic containers. A closer look at the cucur udang. The other Malaysian favourites would be the Roti John. Apom Balik. Roti Jala. Otak-otak and pulut rice. Varieties of meat; lamb, beef, etc…They all look delicious don’t they. Char Koey Teow. You won’t be able to miss this guy frying koey teow. Big fire and awesome performance. He is the only one frying the koey teow with style. The fire is so big that in less than a minute, the koey teow is ready. This is not the dry version of char koey teow but the wet one. Self-claimed Penang Char Koey Teow, I would say that this is one of the best I’ve tried so far in Kuala Lumpur. Maybe he is from Penang. lol. RM3.50 for a pack of Malay style Penang Char Koey Teow. Asam Laksa. Other than Malay food, you can also find Italian food here. A large piece is RM19 while a small one is RM16. Look at the generous amount of ingredients they gave! Cendol. To be honest, this is the first time I see cendols sold in this way. Look at the colourful decorated cendols in jugs, they were priced at RM3.50 for the whole jug. They are so colourful that I cannot resist not showing the other beautiful decorated cendols. Red beans, jellies, corns,… Colourful Drinks. I am not going to try this anytime soon. But, they do look pretty. More desserts. Tepung Pelita. Sarawak Layered Cakes. Lekor Chips aka Keropok Lekor. The Ramadhan market opens only during the Ramadhan month. Hence, if you are planning to visit this place, you better be quick. It is located at the car park area right in front of the Malawati Stadium in Shah Alam.
