Ramadan Bazaars may be cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but you can still enjoy your Thai milk tea and martabak manis at home.
Like most Singaporeans, I felt sad when I heard that the Ramadan Bazaars are cancelled this year in light of the COVID-19 situation.
On the bright side, I am happy to skip the long queues and sweaty crowds just to get my fix of traditional Malay food and unique snacks. This year, most of the local F&B bazaar stalls are now offering home deliveries. Here are seven local businesses offering islandwide deliveries for you to enjoy your bazaar treats from home!
Three iced teas from Broti‘s menu will be available for online purchase. This includes bestsellers Thai Milk Tea, Earl Grey Milk Tea, and Green Milk Tea.
Do note that the iced teas will be served without ice and in 400ml bottles, instead of the usual jumbo-sized cups.
If you have sudden cravings for satay goreng (pan-fried satay), Satay Ummi offers frozen-packed options for your convenience.
Their chicken satay goreng is priced at $22, while the beef and mutton are priced $26 and $28 respectively.
If you prefer to have your meals piping hot, go for the Bento Sets instead.
Air Katira is a refreshing and cooling drink that is usually brewed during the fasting month. Alkatira serves a variety of flavours, such as Bandung and Chocolate Milo, as well original and natural. Each bottle costs $2.50.
Another must-have item at the Ramadan Bazaar is the Martabak Manis, a dessert pancake topped with sweet ingredients like condensed milk, chocolate and cheese.
Fan favourite Markozar serves up Martabak Manis in various flavours, such as the OG Original and Nutella Falls.
If you have a super sweet tooth, try their Banana Cheese (available in four flavours) and Keria Viral (sweet potato donuts glazed in gula melaka).
A common sight at Ramadan Bazaars in recent years, Beef Bro specialises in halal blow-torched beef cubes.
Take your pick from a variety of unique flavours such as Cheesy Mentaiko Beef Cubes and Truffle Beef Cubes. Or go for their original Beef Cubes ($12.90) if you prefer to savour the beef cubes on its own.
Burgs by Project Warung is known for their affordable yet juicy burgers. Break your fast with their popular items like the Double Burgs’ Bacon and Cheese Burger ($10.70) and Honey Soy Chicken Wings ($4.90).
This well-loved local restaurant is not usually featured at Ramadan Bazaar, but many diners flock to their outlets during Ramadan for a taste of their kampung-style cuisine.
If you want to surprise your family with their favourite Malay dishes, fill up their tummies with hearty dishes like the BBQ Sudanese Chicken ($9) and Oxtail Soup ($8).
PS: Hjh Maimunah has started taking orders for their Tingkat deliveries for Ramadan. More details here!
Although ordering in may not be the same as being at the Ramadan Bazaar, you’ll win brownie points this year for staying home and helping to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
So, eat well and stay safe!
