Open only for dinner. I found this place a stone throw away from our motel, Damai Pantai.
When we arrived, we saw the place was crowded. The restaurant is breezy as it is located just across the road from the beach.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Nasi Goreng Minang (yellow fried rice with a piece of crispyfired chicken) and a bowl of chicken tom yam. The rice was good. Tom Yam was just passable.
The waiter had to turn my order of Air Batu Campur because the kitchen cannot cope with the drink orders. So, we left to another place for dessert.
This coffeeshop came recommended by the owner of the motel that we stayed in. We had to walk about 1km from, Damai Pantai. Along the scenic beach, passing by kampung houses and primary school.
A favourite among the locals, this shop is patronised by school children to old grampas. Just peep under the tudung saji (food cover) and pick your favourite dish. Pay before you leave.
Favorite Dish: 1) Nasi Dagang - cheap & delicious. RM1/ packet.
2) Roti Canai - soft and nice. But the dhal gravy is a liitle watery. So, we eat it with the nasi dagang gravy (mackerel curry).
3) Nasi Kerabu - fragrant and great carbo fix to start the day.
4) Kuih Apam - Mouth watering cake, eaten with freshy ground coconut

I do not know how this drink got its name. Dangdut is a genre of Indonesian popular music that is partly derived from Arabic, Indian, and Malay folk music, which is quite well known by the sexy hip moves with dance that comes along with it.
The drink comes in a mug. You can see three distinct layers - milk at the bottom, tea in the middle and foam on top.
The taste? Yummy. Creamy and sweet! It got my tongue doing the dangdut! Heheh! Must try!
This is not really a restaurant, but a shop selling freshly fried keropok lekor (fish cake) and sata.
It also offers instant keropok (fish crackers) and frozen fish produce for sale.
Open 3:00pm – 7:00pm.
Favorite Dish: Keropok Lekor is popular fried snack in Terengganu, made of fish meat, ground to a paste, and mixed with sago. Keropok is best eaten hot with its special chili sauce.
If you are craving for some Tom Yam action, this is the place for it. The food is a fusion of Malay & Thai. Tastes great and it's cheap.
Favorite Dish: Tom yam, fish & simply any Malay-Thai dishes. Ask the boss to recommend his specialties!
Warning: Tom yam can be really really spicy!
There are many Malay stalls set up along the beach in Dungun. These are very nice places to hang out in the evening after a stroll down the beach. It's not hot here because the stalls have chosen strategic places under the shades. Enjoy the sea breeze as you take some local snacks. It's very cheap. Few years back it was only 50sen for a bowl of ais kacang/ cendol.
Favorite Dish: Laksa, ais kacang, cendol and keropok lekor.
This little coffee house serves very nice coffee during breakfast. Enjoy your favorite Malaysian breakfast here - Nasi Lemak, Curry Puff, Toast Bread, Half-Boiled Egg or choose from an assortment of local kuih.
This is the place to get your favorite curry noodles, dry noodles and clear soup noodles. You can choose from different types of noodles like yellow noodles, bee hoon or kuey tiao. You can also choose extra toppings! Nice lady boss who always smiles.
The night market in Dungun is the biggest in Terengganu. It is held every Thursday night and is located near the district library. There is a huge square selling local delicacies. Food is cheap and tasty. Try nasi briyani, nasi bukhari, keropok lekor, otak-otak and many different types of kuihs. Good local Malay food here. Don't miss it!
