Little Vietnam: Great Tom Yum!!
Little Vietnam is a newly opened restaurant in Kuantan. The owner comes from Melbourne, Australia and has brought a touch of class to this restaurant. It is stylishly decorated and a lovely atmosphere. The food is sensational, and although not as cheap as the street vendors, it was still very affordable.
Favorite Dish: The Tom Yum soup was excellent. I went back about 3 times it was that good. The curry chicken with vermicilli was also great. The fruit slushies were also a big hit, especially since us Aussies were sweltering in the Malaysian heat,

Alif's: Curries and Roti...
Alif's is extremely popular with local's and visitors alike. At all hours of the day, the place is completely full. Including at 4am when you are coming home from a night at local bars. It has a large outside area so you can eat on the street with scrawny cats walking around your ankles. It is certainly an experience and I rarely spent a day in Kauntan that I didn't eat a meal at Alif's. It is also extremely good value. A meal of curry and roti can cost less than US$0.50.
Favorite Dish: Roti and fish head curry. Very tasty!!

Planet Seafood: Don't miss their ikan bakar (grill stingray)!
Thanks to a fellow virtual tourist who recommended this place. This place is a superb place for local Malay food. It's a clean wooden hut by the roadside with bling-bling colorful lights hanging around it.
Favorite Dish: The grill stingray is my favourite! It was very spicy, but taste really fresh and good. The 'sambal' (chillies) on top of it, blended with lemon grass really add up to its smell and taste.
I will definitely return here to taste it again, if I ever have the chance to be in Kuantan.
