    Ria Tom Yam: Popular Among The Locals

    by runwitme Updated May 30, 2007
    Nasi Goreng Minang & Sup Tom Yam Ayam
    3 more images

    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.

    Kedai Kopi Haji Man: Eat Breakfast with the Locals

    Kedai kopi Haji Man
    4 more images

    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

    For pictures of the yummy food, please visit my Travelogue. Thank you.

    Teluk Seafood: Teh Dangdut

    by runwitme Updated May 28, 2007
    Teh Dangdut
    1 more image

    Favorite Dish: 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!

    Malay Stalls on Jalan Pantai: Nice food with the evening breeze

    by zuyao Updated Mar 22, 2007

    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.
