Aside from the usual Ramadan bazaar fare, why not sample Italian and Mexican food at the bazaar along Jalan BK 5A/1 in Bandar Kinrara.

Mior Amin mans such a stall in the bazaar with his mother and elder brother.

He usually sells cakes and pastries but during Ramadan, he sells dishes such as lasagna, spaghetti, mac and cheese, enchiladas, and chicken burrito.

“I decided to sell Mexican and Italian cuisine because I want to be different.”

Also wanting to stand out from the crowd was Nazira Zahal Arif, who came up with eye-catching names for her beverages.

A concoction of lemon, lychee and nata de coco was named “I Miss You”.

“I hope customers will miss the drink once they try it and return for more,” she said.

M. Farid Fazlee, who mans the only stall selling roast lamb, was busy carving the lamb which is roasted over a charcoal pit.

“On the first day, I sold one and a half lambs!,” he said.

On average, he sells one whole lamb and has garnered returning customers even though this is his first time setting up a stall at the bazaar here. In previous years, he operated at other locations.

There is a mix of old and new vendors like Nordin Mohd Noor, who has been selling nasi tomato, nasi lemak and fried chicken at the bazaar for five years.

There is also a vendor selling fried mushrooms. According to stall assistant Ismail Tanggali, 26, the most popular flavour is cheese; other flavours include barbecue, spicy, black pepper, chicken and curry.

Fandi Idris, who hails from Putatan, Sabah, was seen selling grilled chicken wings, chicken bladder and gizzard.

He has been trading at a local pasar tani for 10 years and will return to his hometown for Hari Raya.

There were a few vendors selling tepung pelita and one of the customers was 46-year-old teacher Nor Zizan Abdul Rahman,

“I usually cook at home, I’m here only to buy desserts,” she said.

Spiral-cut potato on skewers can also be found at the bazaar. (Bandar Kinrara 5/1a Ramadan Bazaar, July 2)

Other items sold at the bazaar included staples such as roti John, murtabak, satay and assorted kuih.

Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officers were seen patrolling the bazaar to check licences and to ensure regulations are followed.

Get there early as there is a school nearby and the area can get rather congested after 6pm.
