Yup, your holidays to Terengganu would not considered as complete without having their most famous local dish which is Keropok Lekor. It was like the Satay Ikan but this time they did not grill it, just deep-fried.
There was a say among the locals that when the raw Keropok Lekor was bringing outside the state, it will taste different rather then when you eat at the shop where you buy the Keropok. True or not, I’m not really sure, but somehow, the theory of the freshness of the food can be applied here. The Keropok Lekor was made from fish, so when you keep the food for a long time, it will probably not as fresh as the Keropok at the stall. And yeah, most of the stall that sold the raw Keropok Lekor will served you the cooked one also.
The most recommended place for you to buy Keropok Lekor is at Kampung Losong, Terengganu (Recommended by Terengganu Tourism). However the place I want to blog here is not located at Kampung Losong but the dishes was based on that place. Actually this place was recommended by my parent friends who was once a local here. I would like to remind you that I’m not promoting this place, you may try others, I blog this for my reference later~hoho ^_^
Anyway, to me, when I tried the newly fried Keropok Lekor, it was quite good~~Damn it was really good actually!! If not because it was really hot as it was just taken out from the Kuali, I will eat all 20 pieces of it, huhu. The dipping sauce was also good. I really encourage you to try the newly-fried Keropok Lekor when you come here, be it at this stall or anywhere in Terengganu which you might think their Keropok Lekor was original and good~
Oh ya, actually we get 50 pieces of Keropok Lekor free at this stall, as a gift from the owner as we buy a a lot from them~hoho. Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the photo taken:
They also sell various types of Keropok at a wholesale price~~
And this is quite special. Have you ever try Air Nira Nipah (Sap Water from Palm tree)? It was quite good actually, and you should try it~ ^_^
Look for this signboard if you want to go here, or you might just call them~ =P
No Location Map because I forgot already where is the place~LOL!
But I’ll give you the phone number, if any: 019-9467675 or 019-9932967. Ok guys that’s all, this will be my last update on my trip to Terengganu for this time and I hope I can come here again in my quest to find good food here!! Have a nice day!!
