Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim @ Alor Setar

A day before I am off to China for a week, I know I will surely miss curry when I am there, hence the urge to have a good place of awesome Nasi Kandar before I depart from Malaysia is a must.

Hence, I travel all the way down to Alor Setar to the best Nasi Kandar I had tried up till today, Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim.

This is truly a 1Malaysia stall, unlike the BS you heard and read in newspaper everyday.

This small coffee shop are run by Chinese in a traditional Chinese Coffee shop setting, while the Nasi Kandar stall are run by Indian Muslims, or better known as Mamak. You can always find all races dining here happily, proved that we Malaysians, although we do have our different believes and culture, we can live together in a harmonious way.

We don’t need all those marketing campaign and 1Malaysia logo all around to tell us what 1Malaysia are, all the time we are already able to do so.

Waterview Restaurant @ Dannok

Waterview restaurant at Danok is one of the most visited restaurant in Danok, because it’s special. How special? You will know soon.

Anyway, the restaurant is located quite outside from the main town. The road lead to there is very small, hence I do advice one to go there when the sun is still out.

Since I am not driving myself in, I go there using the hotel taxi. Which cost me RM30 for a round trip. It’s just a short trip by the way, which takes around 15minutes each journey, but since we are sitting the huge VIP style van, I think the price is pretty ok.

Breakfast Street Food @ Dannok

As lively as Dannok gets around 6PM till 8PM almost every night especially weekend, most of the time it’s a quiet town.

For breakfast, one will have a hard time trying to found a shop to eat in. However, if you don’t mind sitting by the road for your breakfast, then you will have plenty of option.

Quite a few stalls selling Koay Chap (粿汁), which is a bit different from what we normally get in Malaysia.  Koay Chap is a dish with a special type of noodle. The texture is also different and it’s doest taste a bit like koay teow, but not really so. They are not stingy with the ingredients at all which make it quite a filling bowl of noodle. 6.8/10
