Ramadhan Bazaar @ Bayan Baru, Penang
The Ramadhan Bazaar at Bayan Baru, located just beside Bayan Baru market and Masjid Umar Al Khatab is one of the biggest Bazaar available. This temporary market is only available during the holy fasting month for the Muslim every year, and it draws a huge crowd as early as 4pm. Dozens of stalls are here, selling various mouth-watering dishes.
An exodus of crowd will be flocking the area daily, causing a substantial traffic congestion within the vicinity of the bazaar. Parking may be a challenge there, hence do prepare to park your car a distance away and walk there. Nonetheless, the varieties of food sold here is the one of the solid reason you should be here.
The price for the food here is rather reasonable in our opinion. If you are on a tight budget for dinner, assuming RM5 only, you could land yourself with a packet of Nasi Kerabu and a piece of fried chicken.
This year Ramadhan month happens to be coincide with the durian season thus Pulut Durian is available. Would pulut for buka puasa seems like a heavy choice?
We bought the fried chicken here. A big piece cost RM2 while a small piece cost RM1 only! We were in fact drew by the crowd picking the fried chicken in front of the stall. Quite a bargain for the day.
Look at the big pot for cooking the curries. How many servings could it be possibly serve? The business must be really good here.
For that day itself, we had ayam percik (RM 6.00), which is almost immersed in its flavourful sauce, a murtabak (RM3.00), a piece of moderately large fried chicken (RM2.00) and a piece of kebab (RM3.00), and a packet of sea coconut (RM3.00). Total RM17.00 for a satisfactory dinner.
