Malaysia is sometimes known as a food heaven. The multi-ethnic society sees to it that one will be totally spoilt for choice when it comes to food. To top that, no matter what time of the day or night you need to satisfy that hunger, food is just around the corner.
If you are a visitor to this country, do not hesitate to try the street food here. Street food is not only cheap, quick and safe, they are, in most cases, the more authentic when it comes to taste, be it Malay food, Chinese or Indian food.
If you are here this time of the year, i.e., Ramadan (the fasting month), a further treat awaits you. Not to be missed in the evening is the Ramadan bazaar - usually located in parking lots or along the main street and with the trademark huge colourful outdoor umbrellas.
The Ramadan bazaar is a bustling food bazaar with all kinds of cooked food for people to break their fast in the evening. The Ramadan bazaar is also popular with the non-fasting public as well as tourists. The food choice here is truly amazing, from sweet dates to a variety of local cakes to rice and noodles, chicken curry, chicken rendang, grilled mackerel and stingray, rose syrup drinks and fruit juices, all kinds of fruits (durian included) - this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are more, lots more! You simply have to experience a Ramadan Bazaar when you are here!
