Best Nasi Dagang In Town

If you like nasi dagang, you will surely agree that the Terengganu nasi dagang has no rival. And if you are in KL, and looking for Terengganu nasi dagang, you must have not much luck looking for an authentic nasi dagang.

Well, if you are reading this, you have come to the right place. There is one called Ulek Mayang Restoran along the Middle Ring Road II between TAR College junction and Gombak-Batu Caves turnoff. I discovered it by chance while travelling via the road and decided to stop over to check it out.

Unfortunately, that day, the nasi dagang was sold out. Instead, we had nasi kerabu - real nasi kerabu Terengganu-style, complete with herbs and budu (fermented fish which smells like hell but taste like heaven).
We also tried the satar (fish meat marinated in herbs and spices) wrapped in banana leaves and barbecued to perfection.
For dessert we had tapai or fermented rice which was wrapped in rubber tree leaves. Check out the pictures (from top): The Menu, The Restaurant, Nasi Kerabu, Satar and Tapai.
