RM10 Challenge at Ramadan Bazaar in Kuala Lumpur

As Raya is just a day away, it marks the end of Pasar Ramadan or Ramadan Bazaar in Malaysia.

Every year, for a month, these special food markets are everywhere, selling all sort of scrumptious food, both the traditional and modern versions. They are opened as early as 3 PM every day, until the breaking fast at around 7:20 PM.

All these markets, or fondly known as Param (Pasar Ramadan) is a hit among the busy Muslims who are looking for cooked-meal for their berbuka, they are also popular among other races and religions who love Malaysian food. After all, these delicious food are sometimes only easily available during the fasting month.

Known for their variety of food sold, you can even find other items for Raya shopping such as Malay traditional clothes especially at the one in Jalan TAR Bazaar. The foods are not just tasty, sometimes they are cheap too. You just have to know where to find them.
