Cooked Food items:

1. Dendeng

Dendeng (BBQ beef jerky) is personally one of my favourite snacks to have at the Geylang Serai Bazaar! Chewy, juicy and yummy, having just one piece is never enough ?

Where to get it: 

Halal status: All Muslim-owned

2. Ramly Burger

Ah, the quintessential Ramadan Bazaar snack, Ramly Burger! There's nothing like the appetising smell of meat patties and watching the stall vendors grill the burgers right in front of your eyes. Well, since you can't get that this year, time to enjoy it with your loved ones at home instead ?

Where to get it:

Halal status: All Muslim-owned

3. Apam Balik

Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside with sweet toppings, apam balik (turnover pancake) is one traditional dessert we just can’t seem to get enough of! Traditionally, it consists of only peanuts and corn but several home-based businesses are selling so many flavours like Nutella, cheese, durian, banana and more.

Where to get it:

Halal status: All Muslim-owned

4. Takoyaki

Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside and filled with delicious ingredients like octopus, prawns or sausages, it's hard not to love takoyaki!

A traditional favourite at bazaars, Ayam Percik is grilled chicken marinated in rich spices. The secret to this chicken tasting so good is really the sauce.

You can get it delivered to your home too (:

What's even better is that you're in the comfort of your own home and focus on spending more time doing ibadah. The great thing is that you'll also be supporting local small businesses.
