food hunting trip!

this Saturday our small family will be flying home for Hari Raya Qurban.. this Hari Raya will be a treat for me, so i choose to go back to Kota Bharu because the last Hari Raya Puasa were fully spent in hubby's hometown.. I can't wait no longer to hunt for my favourite Nasi Belauk, Nasi Dagang & Nasi Kerabu! it's not that there is no such food sold here in KL, but the taste is totally different.. the rice is perfectly cooked, the dishes are adequately served and the taste is comparable to nothing! and of course the price is unbargainable! you can have a plate of Nasi Dagang served with Chicken/Fish curry at RM1.50/plate.. where on earth could you be that lucky? and you know what, I've been eating my favourite Nasi Kerabu from the same old lady since I was a kid.. same goes for Nasi Dagang & Nasi Belauk! those Makciks are selling these food for more than 20 years at the same market!

Besides, I am looking forward too for a sumptuos Chinese+Thai dinner at The Four Seasons Restaurant located in Kota Bharu.. I've already booked a table for 10 this morning for Hari Raya dinner.. that's the only time I could find for this small family gathering.. this chinese restaurant serves Halal food, the tauke is Kelantanese Chinese but the cook are all Malay/Thai.. and they are certified cook/chef as far as i know.. even Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan TV3 has visited it and gave thumbs-up! this restaurant serves really really delicious food, from Tom Yam of your choice to Buttered Prawn, Lemon Chicken, Steamed Siakap Fish, kerabu Mangga, squid tempura (sotong goreng tepung), fried mixed vegetables, wrapped Egg (telur bungkus), and so many more (i can't remember the list but i enjoyed them all)! the food are served in package of 2-3 pax, 4-6 pax and 7-9 pax.. these packages are reasonably priced.. for 7-9 pax package, we can have white rice, 8 meals of your choice (choose anything from the list i mention, but not to repeat the same kind), fruit & chinese tea.. and the price is only RM128, which is only RM14.22 per person! well you know how the restaurants in KL priced exactly the same meal.. it's unaffordable here unless you have vendors paying for you!

Forget to tell something more interesting.. hehe.. the flight ticket for me, hubby and Aisya is only RM167 for the return KL-KB trip! lucky enough for us since my parents house is only 5 minutes drive from the Kota Bharu Airport! again, thanks to AirAsia!
