Nasi Dagang Pasar Besar Kedai Payang

On my previous trip to Terengganu for the Monsoon Cup, December last year, I had the chance to experience a slice of Kuala Terengganu’s great local delicacies.

Straight from the airport after an early morning flight, I was looking for a place for breakfast. I had Nasi Dagang in mind and with a rented Proton Saga I ended up in Pasar Kedai Payang, the famous shopping destination in Kuala Terengganu.

A cool thing about traveling alone is the total freedom of going anywhere at any time. I cannot imagine just passing by the attractive batek shops without stopping to shop if I was with wife and family! This time I only had Nasi Dagang in mind!

This sign however, caught my attention.

With the most sopan santun way, I made my way through the stairs to level 1 where I was greeted by what I was looking for… A local Medan selera or food court!

I ended up in this particular stall because it was less crowded and the Nasi Dagang packets look yummy!

At 9am, there were only 2 packets left at this stall. I sat down immediately and waste no time.

Perfect breakfast…. click here for Wikipedia on Nasi Dagang

The owner saw me snapping photos and we had a nice chat. He recommended the Nasi Lemak as dessert…

But I went for Nasi Dagang all the way…

Yummy! anyone can recommend a good Nasi Dagang stall in KL?
