One of favorite dishes in this city is no doubt nasi lalapan (lalapan rice). There are one main dish (either fried fish, chicken or beef slice) accompanied by seven side dishes (mainly fresh vegies, ulam, tempe, fried taufoo) and sambal belacan (chilli blended with shrimp paste). This hot dish is served with steamed rice. Many restaurants around serve nasi lalapan but the leader is inarguably Restoran Muara at North Yu Seng Road, at the city center. Price per plate without drink is from RM8 (beef).

World best nasi lemak served 30000 feet abv the ground

Probably the one served on Malaysia Airline flights during breakfast. Fragrant rice marinated with coconut milk and served on banana leave. Packed crispy fried anchovies and groundnuts and sambal udang and bilis make it even better than mom-made or wife-made. (hope my wife misses this post). Free refills of coffee and orange juice. A sweet stewardess which carries  nametag  jamie anton.  What else can you ask for in this competitive airline business. All paid for in the fare. Yes, little is delicious as I kept telling bella ell, but this one is an exception.
Seems that pak naser has to learn more… See image abv for nasi lemak served on MH2592 by jamie anton.

Restoran Dollah di Kemaman, TERENGGANU

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Jika anda sampai di Kemaman, Terengganu di waktu yang betul, singgahlah sekejap di restoran ini. Kedai makan ini dibuka pada awal pagi untuk sarapan pagi sehingga waktu makan tengahari sahaja.  Selepas itu ditutup. 

Pada waktu pagi, roti canai dengan kari ikan tenggiri sangat popular di sini. Maap tak sempat ambil gambar sebelum, hanya gambar selepas. Karinya memang sedap, pekat dan betul-betul ‘kaw’.  Jangan lupa pesan teh tarik yang kurang manis. Menu popular makan tengahari ialah nasi beriani.

Hidup perlu ringkas seperti ini.

Roti kosong dengan kari ikan tenggiri. (Gambar selepas, ikan sudah habis)

Kedai makan ini biasa sahaja terletak di bawah sepohon pokok besar di tepi jalan utama dari pekan Kemaman menghala ke Kijal. (selepas stesen minyak Shell).

Bagaimana untuk sampai ke sini?

Kemaman ialah perhentian utama dari Kuantan ke Kuala Terengganu melalui jalan pantai. Sebenarnya, Kemaman lebih dekat dengan Kuantan (50 kms sahaja) berbanding dengan Kuala Terengganu (150 kms). Bandar ke dua terbesar di Terengganu. Industri minyak dan gas berpusat di daerah Kemaman. Kemaman sebenarnya ialah nama sebuah daerah di Terengganu dan nama bandarnya ialah Chukai. Tetapi orang ramai lebih mengenali Kemaman sebagai sebuah bandar dan bukannya Chukai.

Feeling hungry at LCCT, Kuala Lumpur?

Satisfy your tastebud with the most popular everyday Malaysian dishes — which is no other than nasi lemak.  Nasi lemak is rice cooked in santan (coconut milk) and served together with sambal (spicy gravy) and other condiments and best savored in its most spartan form — traditionally wrapped in banana leave in pyramid shape. (See photo below — the leftmost menu item). Nasi lemak can be found anywhere —  in a posh hotel, by roadside stalls or even on MH and AK flights. If you are at LCCT and about to board a flight and still have 10 minutes to spare, try the stall below.

Nasi lemak stall at LCCT domestic departure hall.

For RM6.90 you get a nasi lemak complete with one half of hard boiled egg, anchovies, 2-3 slices of cucumber and a hot sambal (gravy). The package comes with a cup of kopi-o (black coffee). The stall is located right in front of departure gate P8 and P9. You can enjoy it in complete view of your departure gate, so that you will not miss the fight!
