Might as well…

After our lunch that day, it so happened that we went to that part of town that we seldom venture to and I decided that I might as well stop by here and buy some stuff for dinner so we would not need to rush home and cook.

Of course, I bought their nasi kerabu with ayam percik

…for my missus – her favourite and I would say that it is even more so these days as it seemed super extra spicy!

My girl did mention once that she would like to try their nasi dagang

…some day so I bought that too.

However, she had a change of heart when she saw the nasi tomato with ayam masak merah

…that I thought I would want to try. She said it was very nice but it was not the best she had had. She insisted she could do it better!

I had the nasi dagang before when the lady boss treated me to it to let me try and yes, I quite enjoyed it. My missus is not into it as she does not like the texture of the ikan tongkol – that is the fish they use in the curry.

I did not ask for the breakdown of the prices but the total came up to RM20.00, less than AUD/NZS/SGD7.00, for a wonderful meal for the three of us!

PERMAI FOOD COURT (2.297141, 111.896163) is located among the newer shops to the section on the right of Jalan Permai, somewhere opposite the Sibu General Hospital, off Lorong Ulu Oya 11, off Jalan Ulu Oya, to the right of the Permai Hotel there.

  1. Wow 3 different dishes with fairly good portion for less than Rm20? That’s a steal. 😀

    I want to try the Nasi Dagang. 😀

    Specialties from your side, two from the East Coast.

  2. All looks very appealing. I would love to try a bit of everything. I like the pickled cucumber and pineapple in the nasi dagang set.

    Sugar Bun’s is nice, they give with their rice sets.

  3. I’d go for the nasi kerabu and ayam percik or the nasi tomato with ayam masak merah anytime. Like your missus, I dislike ikan tongkol which is why since childhood, I never liked nasi dagang even though that’s a specialty in Terengganu.

    The lady boss at a since-closed-down Indian coffee shop that we used to frequent said there are different types and you must know which to buy so the texture will not be like rotten wood. It seems there are different types of tenggiri too, one type good for fish balls, not so good for frying. Everything is so complicated!

  4. ayam percik! long time didn’t have that…..since last year Raya….

    The one here is very nice, dunno if there is any at any other Malay shop or stall in town. Haven’t really paid attention to it.

  5. I just harvested butterfly pea from my lockdown garden. Maybe I can colour my rice blue too.

    I’ve been harvesting mine and sending them to my friends at Payung Cafe for their rice. I read somewhere if we do not pluck the flowers, they will grow seeds…and they will not flower anymore.

  6. The nasi dagang does not look appealing to me too.

    That’s the “national dish” of Terengganu you are taking about. so fragrant, bursting with flavours. The Hakka kacang ma chicken, so popular in Kuching, is nothing to look at either…and our daging masak hitam too.
