Restoran Sabar Menunggu: Nice Malay Food
The name of the restaurant litteraly means 'Patiently Waiting Restaurant' which put me off at first, worried that I've to wait for ages for my food to be served. But don't worry, they are quite fast. Very nice local Malay dishes at very affordable prices. There's a huge crowd here during dinner time because of the good food.
Favorite Dish: Ikan Tiga Rasa (3-Flavours Fish), Tom Yam, Ayam Rendang (Chicken), fried rice etc. Everything tastes good.
There is a Malay stall by the Kerteh bay near the fisherman's terminal. This place serves very fresh Malay-style seafood. It used to be on a small barge out in the bay and you have to get onto the barge on a 'rakit'. Now it's shifted to the mainland in a food court. You know how fresh it is when you order oyster and the shop attendant will jump into the sea and get fresh oysters for you! The boss is friendly and will engage you on any topic if he's free. Nice place to enjoy some Malay hospitality and nice food at the same time. Only one bad thing: sometimes there are lots of flies in the area.
Favorite Dish: Try the oyster grilled or fresh! It's only RM2 an oyster. Try the fried calamari and fish. All tastes great. They also have cockles.
JR Cafe: Yummmmmmmmmmy Food!
Just a small restaurant owned by a local Chinese couple and assisted by a few Malay ladies.
The restaurant is seperated into 2 area....the Kitchen & the Bar. It opens daily from 11 am to 10 pm except on Saturday. he Bar do open on Saturday from 5pm.
The food is delicious. Ambience is nice with some framed pictures of marine life.
On some nites, you need to make a reservation. Call the owner - Joseph - and specify u want. He rarely keep stock to ensure freshness of the food served.
What I normally do, is call him in the morning and order the food then for my dinner later.
1. The mud crab or prawns fried with salted egg - Simply superb
2. Mixed beans vegie
3. Fillet fish with ginger
