Meka Restau­rant

66/16 Tingkat Bawah, Ta­man Seri In­tan, Jalan Sul­tan Omar, Kuala Tereng­ganu (09 623 1831).

Meka’s friendly owner, Haji Awang, is al­ways on hand to of­fer help­ful tips. This is pretty much a com­pul­sory pit stop on any Tereng­ganu food trip – the rich spread of Malay food such as crispy fried ayam kam­pung, gu­lai dag­ing tetel, and masak lemak nangka is tes­ta­ment to that. Throw cau­tion to the wind and try a bit of ev­ery­thing. Ha­lal. Child friendly. Dis­abled friendly. Closed on Fri­days.

NEW Kuah Sing­gang Restau­rant Jalan Tok Ku, Kuala Tereng­ganu (019 985 6133).

On the east coast of Malaysia, fish al­ways tops the menu. Kuah Sing­gang Restau­rant in Cha­bang Tiga is fa­mous for its ikan sing­gang: fish cooked in clear broth. The folks at Kuah Sing­gang also do a mean Malay-style ikan bakar: fish wrapped in ba­nana leaves with tangy spices and grilled just right.

Ha­lal.

Ny­onya Madam Bee’s Kitchen 177 Jalan Kam­pung Cina, Kuala Tereng­ganu.

Award-win­ning chef Tan Choo Bee is the owner of this restau­rant lo­cated in the cen­tre of Chi­na­town, which spe­cialises in Ny­onya cui­sine. The Per­anakans are fa­mous for their de­li­ciously com­plex flavours and Madam Bee’s Kitchen is true to this tra­di­tion. Try some of the au­then­tic dishes such as nasi ker­abu and ro­jak cer­anang served with keropok.

Ha­lal. Child friendly. Free park­ing. Closed on Wed­nes­days.
