Each year, Malaysians eagerly anticipate the festive seasons, not only for the cherished traditions and fond memories they evoke, but also for the tantalizing array of culinary delights that accompany them. Nowhere is this more evident than during Ramadan, the holy month of fasting observed by Muslims worldwide.

In Malaysia, Ramadan is synonymous with a cornucopia of delectable delicacies, some of which are savoured exclusively during this special time. Hotels and restaurants across the country have embraced the spirit of the season, many offering lavish spreads of mouth-watering dishes at the breaking of the fast (buka puasa) to cater to the appetites of both fasting Muslims and their non-fasting companions, who eagerly partake in the gastronomic festivities.
