PARAM Taman Tun Dr. Ismail 2015

Quickie Review
There's a lot of the usual same-old same-old stuff at the Pasar Ramadhans (Param) this year. Thankfully we also managed to unearth some new gems. This year's Pasar Ramadhan at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI) had the usual stalwarts and a couple of new tricks up its sleeve.

But first, this popiah stall. You'll recognize it easily: it's the only one with the looooooong line. The reason for this is two-fold. First of all, the owner, Mr. Shahiful, takes his time and ovingly rolls each popiah by hand, one by one.


Lovingly hand-crafted, one by one


Each one is filled with corn, taugeh, shrimp and a secret saluce. The second reason for the line is because people order the popiah by the bunch! But trust me, if you're up to queue at least 15 minutes, the popiah is worth it: fresh, crunchy and spicy. A perfect snack for iftar.

Make your way into the Param and stop by Kuih Peneram Pak Su, selling, well, kuih peneram. They're like little deep fried donuts made with a stretchy batter. It's sweet, perfect for post iftar snacking and best of all they're cheap: RM1 buys you 10 pieces.


Little bits of yumminess!

The hungrier among you also have a myriad of options.…  Continue reading »

PARAM Simpang Balak 2015

Quickie Review
This is the place you go if you are fed up of the bland commercial stalls in Klang Valley and need to find a pasar ramadan that punches your tastebuds and give you a bit more flavour. Simpang Balak.

Once a month in a year, the road along the Shell Station Simpang Balak turns into a food carnival serving local favourites from murtabak to inconspicous malay kuihs such as Jongkong (It's a higher grade than Tepung Pelita.)



Our top favourite here, this year,are the Kuih Jongkong stalls. There are 2 of them. One by En. Md. Noh and the other Putra at No 49. Made from tepung beras, gula melaka and wrapped in banana leaf, this hard to find kuih sells out fast. Normally around 6.30pm. Bulan ramadan is the only time you can pick up Putra's Jongkong. other times, its made to order at RM2.20 per Jongkong.



Hanif serves simple nasi Arab, both Kabsah and Mandi styles. Mandi is wetter and Kabsah is drier. Being the only nasi arab stall in Simpang Balak, this dish also sells out fast starting at RM14. Find them at Tapak 18 or follow their instagram at @simplekitchenkl.



At stall 17, try the Laksam.…  Continue reading »

What to Cook

Prawn & Snow Pea Stir Fry

by Edwan S., on Fri, June 26, 2015
Asian

This stir fry is fast and furious to make. The flavours are bold and bright and go excellent with some hot white rice and a bit of sambal belachan. The sweetness of the fresh prawns are perfectly complemented by the fresh, crunchy snow peas. Ensure you have everything ready to go, and get that wok smoking hot. Fry away!

Simple Ayam Percik

by Edwan S., on Wed, June 24, 2015
Special Feature
Ayam percik is a classic East Coast dish that gets extra popular during Ramadhan. Go to any bazaar Ramadhan and you'll see chicken on skewers or on grills, smoking and caramelizing before getting a generous lathering or dip in creamy, spicy percik sauce. But, this dish can be expensive to buy. Even more if you are feeding an entire family. So why not…   More »

It's the time of the year for dates... lots of dates. More dates than you can think of. You know what we're talking about: those yummy, almost candy-sweet morsels of dried fruit from the date farm. Ramadhan is always high time to buy dates or kurma. You can find kurma everywhere from the streets to the pasars to the supermarkets. Kurma makes a great…   More »
