Nasi Dagang (DSC8695)

LARGER

The great thing about going to the East Coast of Malaysia, other than salty breezes that greet you on the coastal roads, is of course the abundance of fresh seafood. Otak-otak fat with fresh fish, daily caught squid dipped in batter then fried, superb keropok lekor and of course "nasi dagang" or simply translates to "traders' rice". Mmm... lovely white glutinous rice with a splash of light curry usually made with tongkol (a local tuna) and some acar. I always preferred the Terengganu kind rice white instead of speckled brown like the Kelantanese version and not as rich. Plus the curry is sligtly spicier. True, having such a heavy breakfast might make you redundant for the rest of the day but given the languid pace, you can afford to indulge a little.
