We left Kuala Terengganu in the wee hours of the morning and reached Kemaman by 8:30AM, thinking that we’d stop over (as we always do) at Hai Peng Kopitiam. But horror of horrors, it was closed.

Driving further down the coast we came to the realisation that local folks here do not eat out for breakfast. It was some time later at Cherating’s sleepy village that we found a shop serving any kind of breakfast.

double AA as in bateries? hmm...


Located beside a Petronas petrol station and right before the junction to The Legend Resort Cherating, this restaurant served 1Nasi Lemak Ikan Aye for breakfast. I duly obliged and ordered a plate while Brendan and Cat opted for 2Roti Canai.

1fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk and Pandan leaves served with tuna
2 a type of Indian-influenced flatbread, known as roti prata in Southern Malaysia and Singapore, and is similar to the Indian Kerala porotta.  Circular and flat, the dough is either twirled until it becomes a very thin sheet and then folded into a circular shape or to spread out the dough as thinly as possible before being folded and being grilled with oil.

here's hoping that Double AA will 'energize' us... hehehe!


The verdict? The Nasi Lemak Ikan Aye here is unique in that the fish is boiled (or broiled?) separately and does not form part of the 3Sambal dish. All in all it was an adequate breakfast and at RM10.50 (which also included a glass of Nescafe for moi and Iced Milo for Brendan and Cat) we had no cause for complaints.


3sauce typically made from a variety of chilli peppers and secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars
