Hi Singapore tourists,
Every year during the month of Ramadan, the streets of Geylang Serai (Malay Village) spring to life with temporary bazaar stalls selling festive items and a wide variety of traditional food.
The stalls are located just beside the Sultan Mosque, to cater to the voracious appetites of the muslims who break their day fast in the evenings. We always buy a bunch of ketupat (compressed rice cakes wrapped in palm leaves) to mark the festival with. These are never eaten alone, but always paired with other malay delights such as curry and satay (pieces of chicken, beef or mutton on a stick), which will also be sold at the bazaar for you to mix and match.
After our meal, we will then have malay kueh for dessert. “Kueh” is a broad term for steamed pastries. Traditional malay kueh in Singapore is made of rice flour, coconut shavings and gula meleka (palm sugar). Faced with the rainbow array of selections, you will most definitely be spoilt for choice. We recommend you to hit the bazaar with a bunch of friends, so you can buy a bit of each type to share!
If you still have tummy space for supper, be sure to have a taste of the famously addictive King of Singapore Street Food – the Ramly Burger (a grilled patty with layers of sauce, wrapped in egg), made on the spot and highly customizable.
This year, the Ramadan Bazaar lasts from 1st Aug to 28th Aug. Do schedule an evening for it!
