Gerai Ani

Jalan Sultan Omar
20300 Kuala Terengganu
Coordinates: 5.323665, 103.141817

Right across the intersection of Jalan Sultan Omar and Jalan Sultan Omar there is a row of ‘Gerai’s and ‘Warung’s (both basically means small food stall) selling all manner of Terengganu dishes and cakes.

Gerai Ani!

where all manner of local delicacies are found

among Cat's perennial favourite, the Laksa Asam

and cakes that defy description

found only in Terengganu

Our favorite has always been Gerai Ani, somewhere in the middle of these rows of amazing stalls. I pay particular deference to this stall since it sells what in my honest opinion to be the best 1Paung Pulut or 1Kuih Bom  in town. Cat on the other hand loves the local variant of the 2Laksa found here.

1minced fish with cocounut wrapped in glutinous rice ball and deep fried
2spicy noodle soup consisting of egg noodles with prawn or fish, served in spicy soup; based on sour asam (tamarind)

this is what I came for

the Mee Goreng goes well...

with the Pulut Paong and Kereopok Lekor

Cat's Laksa

and lunch is served

These used to be my sample breakfast growing up in Kuala Terengganu before going to school. Speaking of school, right after this we’ll be visiting my primary (elementary) school just a stone’s throw away.
