Ramadhan Bazaar: That Famous Penang Popiah Stall @ SS14, Petaling Jaya

How’s your Merdeka celebration? Mine came and went just like an ordinary holiday. Sudah tak ada semangat. I didn’t even celebrate my birthday. Bought a cake that stayed unmove in the fridge. LOL

Ok let’s move on to the main agenda… Ramadhan Bazaar!

For years we wanted to try this famous Penang Popiah stall at SS14 Ramadhan Bazaar. And for years it has eluded us until last Saturday. The reason was because the queue was always very looooooooooooooooooooong and very slow moving (worse than tortoise speed).

I was at Digital Mall to get my ‘reserved’ Toshiba SDHC 16GB card from All It Hypermarket. It was around 3.20pm. I thought I will surely miss the Ramadhan Bazaar there since it’s too early?! But whaddya know? Many stalls were just setting up and some are already busy selling buka puasa juadah.

And then we saw it. The Penang popiah stall!

The queue is already long in my standard but my mom insisted on queuing.
We’re like behind 14 to 15 people.

Only RM1. The fillings consist of turnip, scrambled eggs, bean sprouts, prawns & home-made sauce.

Guess how long it took us to buy 5 pieces of popiah from this uncle? 1/2 hour under hot sun!

These are leftovers popiah…
Can you guess why it’s leftovers?

Because no one wants it.
Unfortunately my whole family didn’t like the sweet taste of this popiah. The sauce is sweet and so is the turnip. There’s nothing special to it. What a disappointment. Hai hai

I checked out other blogs that blogged about this popiah. All of them like it except us. LOL

Anyway here are some other juadah that we bought.

Lontong!!! This is my first time trying lontong and I like it a lot. Bought at the stall opposite Penang Popiah. Lontong consist of ketupat, hard-boiled egg and eaten with stay kuah (kuah kacang), vegetable curry and squid sambal (extra)

My most favorite Malay kuih: Kuih Cara.
With curry chicken, green onions, coriander and slices of chili in the middle. HEAVEN!!!

All in all I think I much prefer buka puasa juadah from Shah Alam and Bangsar. What say you?

    OMG! Queue up just for popiah and worse, it wasn’t nice at all? I wouldn’t want to queue up even if it’s super nice! Cos I hate queues. Haha!

    But if it’s not nice, how come got so long queue? Funny!

    Oh, your birthday is on 31st August? You are a Merdeka girl?

    Yeah, nowadays the ramadan bazaar starts as early as 3pm. Crazy right?

    I normally like to go to the one at TTDI. Lots of choices of food that I like! : )

    Oh boy, I caught myself swallowing my saliva! As far as I can remember, my family and I never buys popiah from Malay stalls…my mom says they are sweet and do not taste like popiah. Since I’m from Ipoh, I still favors Ipoh popiah! πŸ˜›

    Foongpc, if I know the popiah won’t suit my tastebud for sure I won’t queue. If it’s yummy, I would certainly queue but if the queue is too long I also won’t lo. So depends.

    I think we Chinese prefer our Chinese version popiah. Just so wrong man… sweet popiah?

    Nola, not Merdeka girl. More like Merdeka-eve girl. LOL

    Yes crazy. 3pm is too early!!!

    Never been to TTDI one.

    Adino, hehe good. I love making my commentators’ tummy rumble like taufan! Haha

    Dawn, haha. Ohh Ipoh everything also nice. Hehe
