Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru


Ramdhan Mubarak to all Muslims! Alhamdulillah, the holy month of Ramadhan is back with us and once again, vendors flock the streets around the Kampung Baru Mosque to sell the much loved and awaited iftar delicacy, Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru. Since this special porridge is only available during the month of Ramadhan, hundreds of people from all parts of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur could be seen lining up to get their share of this delicious dish. Of course, bubur lambuk is given out by many (usually mosques) all over Malaysia but up till now, no other bubur lambuk that I know taste as good as the  Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru from the well-known Masjid Jamek.

Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru

Due to the fact that the Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru is so famous for its ‘bubur lambuk’, the queue at the mosque would be very, very long and some may even have to wait for over an hour for a pack of free bubur lambuk. Those who would rather skip queuing may buy the dish from the many vendors who set up their stalls around the area for about RM2.00 per pack. Unfortunately many were disappointed since the bubur lambuk sold by the vendors taste far different than those given out by the mosque. However, there is one stall that sells the authentic Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru and taste just as good the ones given out by the mosque, ‘Bubur Lambuk Kak Sham’.

If you have not tried the authentic bubur lambuk Kampung Baru, you should try to get some before Ramadhan ends. Believe me, it is worth the trip especially for those who love bubur lambuk. We stay in Ampang and there are lots of places around our area that give away free bubur lambuk (without us having to queue) but we would still be making our journeys to Kampung Baru for our bubur lambuk; and it has to be Aunty Sham’s, of course. And it is always nice to see the delighted faces of our friends when we send them the delicious bubur lambuk.  If you are a bubur lambuk lover like I am or have never tasted the famous Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru before, try to queue at the Masjid Jamek for a pack or just drop by at Aunty Sham’s stall which is opposite the mosque and you would surely be back for more. Aunty Sham’s stall is located in front of the Al-Islam Specialist Hospital.

Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru – is finally back!


banner bubur lambukRamadhan Mubarak to all muslim readers worldwide. Last year, I wrote a post entitled ‘Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru’ (please click here to read more). Bubur lambuk is the tastiest food for iftar and the bubur lambuk given away by the Kampung Baru Mosque/Masjid Jamek is the best amongst all. People from all over KL came for the bubur lambuk. And what makes bubur lambuk more special is that bubur lambuk is only available in the holy month of Ramadhan.

22082009(002)This afternoon, my family and I went to Kampung Baru to buy some of Aunty Sham’s tasty bubur lambuk. When dad

called Aunty Sham, she said that she was not at her stall but at the back of the mosque. Mum and I went to meet her at the tent number 8. She voluntered herself as one of the bubur lambuk cooks at the Kampung Baru Mosque for the ‘Majlis Perasmian Bazar Ramadhan’ this evening. There were abundant of bags of bubur lambuk. I guess there would be around a  thousand containers of bubur lambuk to be given away.
