I brought my nephews and niece for a visit to Kampong Glam on Sunday afternoon. This area was once home to Singapore’s Malay royalty.
During Ramadan, the place comes alive with performances and street bazaars. Now is a good time to soak in the festivities.
Street stalls open from early afternoon until late into the night. They sell a wide variety of traditional food, fashion and handicrafts.The main attraction of the bazaars for us is the food. :D
Food stalls at the street bazaar cater to Muslims breaking fast. Many locals and foreigners come here for the yummy traditional Muslim food. There are a few food stall owners who will set up a stall here only during the annual fasting month bazaar.
Roti Boyan with Sambal Tumis
I discovered a new snack - Roti Boyan (Indonesian bread) S$3 each. It's mashed potato and egg wrapped in a pastry crust, pan fried to golden brown and dip in a sambal tumis ikan bilis sauce. Delicious!
