HOT, steamy buns that come in 20 flavours are among the delicacies available at the Ramadan bazaar near Cosmoplex in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi, Sepang.
Despite the variety, stall owner Mohd Hizbul Bahri, 22, has no problem identifying the buns based on the combination of coloured dots on their smooth surface.
The assorted fillings — durian, sweet corn, curry chicken, squid sambal and even cockles sambal — were prepared by his mother while other family members helped in making the buns from 8am to 2pm every day.
Coloured dots: Mohd Hizbul Bahri offers about 20 variety of buns at his stall.
“We’ve been trading here during the Ramadan month for five years,” he said.
The bazaar that attracted huge crowd for its wide selection of buka puasa fare also featured Tauhu Bakar Warisan Pak Lang.
The slightly charred beancurds were said to be prepared with a recipe passed down from generation to generation.
Over at Mohd Azian Aziz’s stall, a long line of customers waited patiently for their turns to pick from an array of Kelantanese dishes.
“We prepare 25 dishes a day, including solok lada, kelapat ikan, ayam percik bakar and daging panggang,” said the 39-year-old from Pasir Mas in Kelantan.

Rohazimah Ishak’s len chee kang (sweet lotus seeds drink) was a pretty sight with the ingredients lending green and red hues to the soup.
