This is a simple spicy rendang that uses minimal ingredients for big flavour. Cook down chunks of beef in this creamy and spicy gravy and what you get is a dish fit for the Raya table to be eaten with ketupat and lemang. More »
Massage spices and yogurt on chicken chunks and then grill it for a simple and satisfying dinner. You can use the same marinate for chicken wings or thighs for an excellent barbecue option. More »
Ahh, Ramadhan buffets. We meet again. This year, we've compiled a list for you with a twist - they're all RM50 and below! Check out what these five spots have to offer, with tips on what to pile on your plate, and what to skip. Space in your belly is precious, after all! Wadi Hadramawt

This is a smallish pasar ramadhan, crammed around a playground in a crescent. It's situated behind the digital mall and parking can be a bit of a challenge. We found this market cheery with some really good stuff on offer. Verdict: Worthwhile. It seemed to be a lot more Indie sellers here instead of franchises that's a little more prevalent at some of the PaRams we went to. Every corner you go here there's good smells and it being in a semi-circle means that it builds on top of each other gloriously.Our Top 5... drumroll please... 1. Popia Penang Rolled up expertly on the fly
We've loved this stall that plies its trade at the Foodcourt MPPJ for over 30 years. The skins are top-notch encasing filling that just bursts with juiciness. The bits of dried krill, tofu, tauge and turnip are really fresh with two sauces, one a sweet chilli sauce and another a secret hot sauce. Sedap! The pakcik mixing up his filling, you know it's fresh!
They always have long queues but come late and you might luck out on the second batch (or maybe because it was a public holiday yesterday) and they might even put in an extra roll for the road. RM1 per popia. 2. Gerai Campur… Continue reading »
This Pasar Ramadhan shifted from Seksyen 6 near McD to Jalan Teknologi near the industrial side of Kota Damansara. As a result, many people do not know of it so the crowd was small and the sellers not as well established. This was a bit of a pity since the previous PaRam was a great one and there were many vendors from there we did not see at the new place. Macam tak syok sangat
. It probably needs a couple of years before it gets a bit more traction.
There are however, a few good stalls here that we think you should make the effort to come for if you're in the area. Our Top 3 are all savoury this time. 1. House of Kerabu All sorts of kerabu at this stall...
This stall sells all kinds of kerabu, mostly with a Thai slant. There's somtam, kerabu kaki ayam (chicken feet), Thai beef salad, kerabu sotong kering (dried squid) and many more. They do a brisk business. The killer kerabu sotong kering
The somtam was pretty good but it's the dried squid one, a combo of the muskiness of… Continue reading »
Oh yeah, this is another killer Pasar Ramadhan. Kelana Jaya usually comes up trumps and this year is no different. It's located behind Giant and it's a long stretch of delicious goodies. This year there's a concentration of Minang food (ramai orang nogori kat Kelana Jaya nih), simmering woks of rendang and gulai kawah and goodies like ayam tempayan, honey and herb rubbed chooks grilled in huge claypots. Oh we heard the kek batik is good too. Dugaan...
We of course had to do a Top 5 instead of our usual 3. 1. Samosa Mini Murtabak The best kind of love triangle
This modest stall has one of the longest queue here. Reason being is that the skins of these babies are homemade and utterly crispy. Comes in chicken and beef and fried on the spot so it's still a little bit warm when you Buka with it later. It's 80 cents for one and 4 for RM3. On normal days they do sell at various pasar malams in TTDI, KJ, Sg Way and Setia Alam. 2. Gerai Seafood Giant Hello BIG prawns!
Everything in this stall is… Continue reading »
We have to say that this year, Taman Tun has really pulled up their socks. Last two years this PaRam seemed a shadow of it's delicious self and we like to think that they listened to what people have to say and enticed some good sellers this year. Parking is not so horrendous with a car park next door. A good time to go is about 5.15 to 6pm, the early punters have left and late comers not quite there yet.
For our top 3, we decided to go where the queue is longest and see if the hype of these sellers live up to it. 1. Popia Line Panjang Busiest man in the market!
You can't miss this stall. There's a perpetual queue here, at least 12 people long. And people do, waiting patiently for this dude in a kopiah to roll them up. We lucked out and got the last 5 right at the end of the day. So is this popia worth the queue? We think it is. It's succulent even after bringing it home and eating it for supper. Moist fillings
He uses the bigger yellow taugeh so has a different crunch to it and doesn't skimp on nuts. Moist and… Continue reading »
