As a result, this year, the 33-year-old ordered an additional 5,000 pieces due to the overwhelming customer response.

Marking his second year in this business, he explained that people love his grilled rabbit because it’s different. Most of the time, we see chicken everywhere, but rabbit is rare.

“People want to eat something different, and I have several repeat customers,” Sharul shared.

The secret recipe

The generous vendor also shared his secret recipe for marinating the rabbit.

First, he marinates them overnight with barbecue sauce, rosemary, and other spices. Then, he cooks them slowly until they’re almost done before grilling them to make them tender and tasty.

He gets his rabbits from a farm in Melaka and sells a whole one for RM65. If you want a smaller portion, he offers quarters for RM15 and halves for RM35. Plus, you get rice and two sauces to go with it.

Price remains despite rising ingredient costs

Even though the cost of ingredients has gone up, Sharul Shanizam hasn’t raised his prices. He wants to keep his food affordable for everyone. Apart from grilled rabbit, he also offers lamb shanks at his stall.

Sharul Shanizam’s dedication to making tasty food shows that you can find delicious treats even during Ramadan.
