A TOTAL of 41 food trucks are operating at the Rahmah Ramadan Bazaar (BRR) in Kuala Lumpur.
They are located in Jalan Raja, behind Campbell Complex and in the parking area of Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman (TAR) every day from 4pm to 2am.
Each food truck must sell one “Menu Rahmah” meal from 5pm to 8pm, besides other regular-priced dishes.
BRR is an initiative under the “Payung Rahmah” programme introduced by the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry and implemented in 38 locations nationwide.
BRR is organised by Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur Food Truck Entrepreneur Association and Masjid India Food Truck Entrepreneur Association.
Mohd Azam Shamsul Bakri, 24, who sells air balang, told Bernama that he was glad to be able to sell his drinks at RM5 instead of the regular price of RM7 per plastic cup.
Another trader, Zainon Johan, 56, said Menu Rahmah helped her promote her raya biscuits and serunding (chicken/beef floss) to visitors.
“I opted to sell serunding in a 40g packet with four pieces of ketupat palas (glutinous rice wrapped in palas leaf) at RM5 within the prescribed time,” she said.
Mohd Syawal Mahyuddin, 34, who sells roti john, said he had come up with a mini version while still maintaining the two choices of filling, namely chicken or beef, with chilli sauce, salad, black pepper sauce and cheese sauce.
Food trader Mohd Farhan Abd Hamid, 36, hopes the Aidilfitri Bazaar@Lorong TAR can attract more people to buy their food at BRR.
“I believe BRR will become livelier in the coming weeks,” he said.
