Beyond the sea (2)…

I have not been to my regular kuih-muih (Malay cakes) stall at Bandong here ever since the school holidays started and that would be some two months or so ago. Well, school has reopened for 2010 and I would have to get back to my usual routine, so yesterday morning, on my way to my parents’ house, I stopped by the place to see what they had to offer.

Ah! They had the East Coast specialty, nasi kerabu

Nasi Kerabu 1

What I had before was prepared by a lady from Kelantan and the rice was blue but this time, it was prepared by one from Johore and the rice was yellow…and instead of the fried fish with the rice, in this one, she had a small slice of salted egg and bergedil (deep fried cake made of mashed potatoes and fish)…

Nasi Kerabu 2

At RM3.00 a packet, it was VERY nice…and all the condiments added certainly served to enhance the taste.

Also selling at the same price was this nasi dagang, another specialty from the East Coast in the states of Trengganu and Kelantan.

They gave fish curry to be eaten with the rice…

Nasi Dagang 2

…and this too was VERY nice!

As I had to be at my parents’ house all morning, I was not able to cook, so I bought those packets of nasi kerabu and nasi dagang for my daughter and me to have for lunch and we certainly enjoyed them a lot. Just don’t ask how many packets I bought…and who ate most of them! ROTFLMAO!!!
