Clinical Placement at Terengganu Part 3 - Nasi Dagang and Nasi Kerabu

So whenever we travel to some places, food ultimately becomes the main concern. Apart from our homecook food, we also occasionally crave for some local delicacies and luckily we have Jac's boyfriend, who is from Terengganu. He recommended us to try out the famous Nasi Dagang Kak Pah which is only 10 minutes walk from our homestay. 

Tadaa! The famous Nasi Dagang! My impression of the sardine curry was that it tastes a bit like canned sardine with tomato sauce, which isn't bad but not exactly magnificent. The queue for Nasi Dagang in the morning was usually quite long. Local people wake up as early as 7am to have their breakfast.

This famous Nasi Dagang Kak Pah is located in a sudut selera makan near the big green park and Batu Buruk beach.

On the other day, we saw the queue at another store near Nasi Dagang Kak Pah was quite impressive too hence we decided to try out their Nasi Kerabu. Surprisingly, it tastes even better than the Nasi Dagang and all of us like it so much!

Nasi Kerabu comes with fish crackers, a fried chicken, some fresh vegetables, salted egg, sambal, dried minced meat and blue-coloured rice. The blue coloured rice is a result of rice cooked with butterfly-pea flower petals.

Was invited by a local friend's family for lunch at their place. This is their home made Hokkien loh mee (or known as lam mee in KL) and it is sooo good. We actually asked for the recipe and let's see if I can remake this dish soon.

This was me doing Plaster Of Paris (POP) cast for Christy at Hospital Terengganu. Looking pro? Haha.

That's all for now! There will be one last post about Terengganu and that's it!
