5 Places to Buka Puasa this Ramadan 2018

We are currently in the middle of Ramadan which means that we’ve certainly had the pleasure of witnessing and participating in the many Buka Puasa festivities that come together with this holy month for our Muslim friends. From the much anticipated bazaars filled with vendors dishing out our favourite treats to decadent buffets serving up luxurious spreads of both classical Malay fare and international cuisine, this is definitely a wonderful time to gather with our friends and loved ones from all walks of life to keep the spirit of community alive over delicious food and merriment.

With just a few more weeks to go before Raya sets in, check out this list of five buka puasa options that you should most definitely visit.

TTDI Bazaar Ramadan

One of the Klang Valley’s most talked about Ramadan Bazaars, this massive street market is an intoxicating amalgam sights and smells. It occupies a long stretch of road and is filled to the brim with stalls selling everything ranging from drinks, snacks, desserts and everything else in between. Load up on signatures such as the kambing bakar, ayam golek  and bubur lambuk, go for the unexpected and try the oddly addictive Maggi murtabak and wash it all down with a ais kacang and cendol. The TTDI bazaar has been around for years but what always keeps us coming back is that we still manage to discover delicious new treats to fall in love with whenever it rolls in during Ramadan month. The best time to swing by between 4 to 6pm as vendors usually begin packing up their wares between 7 to 7.40pm in preparation for the call to Iftar. Do keep in mind that it can get very crowded so it’s always best to show up early and skip the queues.

Bijan Restaurant

Bijan’s “Kampung Warisan” buffet this month features four specially crafted menus that rotate over the course of its duration to bring diners a wonderfully colourful and varied assortment of rustic flavours that lovingly reflect the provincial cooking style from which Malay kampung cuisine originates. Within the restaurant’s, elegant and intimate setting, diners can look forward to feasting on breathtakingly tender and aromatic opor dining ( short ribs curry), claypot assam pedas, lobster tempoyak and the painstakingly prepared rendang tok; a Bijan signature. Aside from its savoury offerings, Bijan’s desert spread is also impressive with traditional dessert fare made playful with unique twists from the kitchen. One of KL’s few fine dining restaurants that is built around Malay home cooking, the dinner buffet runs from 21 May to June 13.

At Home

Yes that’s right! Sometimes the best place to enjoy a cosy Buka Puasa is right in your own home. Skip the traffic jams, crowds and hustle for a quiet night in and have your food delivered right to your doorstep from one of the many food delivery portals that bring you piping hot meals from your favourite restaurants. From Honestbee to Pappa Delivery, order your meals online from top eateries around the Klang Valley for a satisfying iftar at home. To liven up the atmosphere, gather a small group of your favourite people and buka puasa together. To save a little more on your order, remember to check out Saleduck to score dining deals and promotions from the aforementioned delivery sites and more.

The Bowery Group

The Bowery’s Buka Puasa menu is always something to look forward to and this year’s is no exception. The experimental touches to traditional delights keeps the palate on its toes and is great for when you’re in the mood to try something different but don’t want to stray too far from the classics. The menu boasts two sets; both of which come with starters, a main course, a dessert and a drink of your choice. For RM55 per pax, options include Classic Bubur Lambuk,  Satay Spiced Beef Ribs, Roasted Harissa Lamb Shoulder, Thai Seafood Red Curry and Javanese Chicken Kebabs.

Sambal Hijau Restaurant

For the nasi campur to beat all nasi campurs, Sambal Hijau is the place to go get all your fixings. Round up the crew and head to this cult eatery for its laid-back vibes and over 50 mouth-watering dishes. Pile your plates high with its extensive selection that includes rich curries, smoky grilled meats, seafood, flavourful sambals and veggies then make your way over to the restaurant’s communal dining area to tuck in. A meal can easily come up to about RM20-something per pax and while it veers towards the expensive side for a plate of mix rice, trust us when we assure you that you’re paying for freshness and quality. The food here is authentic and unpretentious, making it perfect for a no-frills, easy-going meal that’ll leave you satisfied and starry-eyed.
