Tropical Restaurant: Simple but sweet and tasty
The restaurant is not open 24 hours. It's only open during breakfast, lunch and dinner when it accommodate meals for the resort's guests. Meals served here were always locals. Though simple...but most meals were quite tasty.
This is not like the island where you'll found many restaurants...all restaurants are located in the resorts...meaning resort's restaurants. For those staying at Lang Sari...the nearest restaurant would be at D'coconut Lagoon...it's just 5-7 minutes away.
Fullboard food? Don't count on it
Food provided is normal. Not particular tasty, but then, if you don't eat, there's nothing else for you to eat since there are no shops here. you eat what they cook, period. Unless you happen to bring your own supplies. Also, bring your own drinking water, unless you are used to drinking seawater.
A roadside stall: Yummy Malaysian Desserts
We took a 10-hour bus journey back from Trengganu to Singapore and along the way, it made a couple of stops . Boy, were we glad when it finally stopped for lunch at some Kelantan road side stall! Our stomachs were rumbling by then and the array of desserts simply looked fantastic.
Favorite Dish: The buffet of goodies you see in front of you are actually crispy - fried pieces of yam, sweet potato and banana. Yes, they tasted good.
The eating area: Slowly turning into Fat Bastard
Just before we came to Lang Tengah, we met the chef at the Merang Jetty. He was an ol' but sprightly fella who seemed quite passionate about his skills. We concluded that he might be a good cook and we were right. Every meal turned out yummy. Our favourite was the nasi lemak with the tastiest sambal ever.Oh yes, the chef makes a mean pickled mango too.
Favorite Dish: I have to admit that I'll turn into Fat Bastard should I stay here for too long! Meals were served buffet-style and like any other divers' lodge in Malaysia, it was plentiful and free-flowing. Also, there were free flow of beverages (tea,coffee,fruit juice, milo), water and (toast / jam)at all times for hungry divers like us.
We didn't pay for the meals since this was a full-board stay.
- Budget Travel
Your only choice
There is only 1 restaurant in this resort. You have your breakfast, lunch and dinner there.
There is a funny thing about this restaurant...you are assigned to a specific table during your entire stay there. A paper with your name, room no. and duration of stay will be pasted on the table.
Food there is acceptable. Nothing great, nothing fancy. No BBQ.
It has ala carte menu but if you go on a full board package, all 3 meals are buffet style. They try to cater to the majority, e.g if there are lots of westerners, they will cook pasta, fish and chips, etc. Otherwise, it will be your local spicy dishes.
Breakfast spread is consistent during my entire stay there. Was unmotivated to get up for breakfast.
You can visit the 2 resorts nearby but they serve pretty similar food.
Restaurant on the island
You dont have much choice of restaurant on the island, since it is a pretty small island. Usually the hotel will provide the meal for you if you take their package. The food is not bad :) Of couse they have ala carte menu too.
And coffee and tea are free flow through out the day, and there are some biscuits to go with the tea and coffee too. So if you feel hungry after the snorkering, feel free to have some snack.
