REVIEW ON KELANTAN DELIGHT







even water is put in such classy bottle =)


Kelantan Delight at Sooka Central are well known for Kelantanese fine dining. The interior inside the Sooka is beautiful and classic. One would feel at ease with such surrounding. Thanks Juniper Journal for inviting me to such a wonderful place =) as well Kelantan Delight for such memorable experience there. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Kelantan food =)  .


Keropok lekor

We had keropok lekor and anchovies for starter. The keropok lekor was soft with crunchy exterior. There are actually many varieties of keropok lekor but this is the original version of keropok lekor which I had tasted 10 years ago. Keropok lekor is a famous street food and are commonly eaten during the afternoon tea at the East coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The anchovies with sesame are crunchy and sweet.





Tom yam kelapa



I think that the Tom Yam kelapa is the one most unique dishes of all. The super thick and spicy gravy made it really appetizing even for a person like me who couldn't eat spicy food. There hint of oregano to accompany the gravy. Besides that, there is coconut flesh that helps to tone down the spicy to be more bearable =).



Kerabu sotong


The Kerabu Sotong is great as the squid are very tender and succulent. I don’t normally eat kerabu but this gets me take few more spoon as the squid are so fresh and tasty.


Ikan siakap daun kaduk

This is their most famous dishes of all.  The leaves that looks like the sirih leaves are actually the daun kaduk.  The ikan siakap daun kaduk taste amazing with the sensational gravy that has the hint of fresh coconut milk. However, we can’t figure out the rest of the ingredients. The fish is also fresh and juicy.



Pucuk paku belacan

The pucuk paku belacan is really tasty as I think they use high grade of belacan that smell really good and definitely did not has the pungent smell.  The vegetables is really fresh and crispy.  It felt like eating kangkung =).  Of course different from the previously pucuk paku that I had eaten.

Sambal udang petai


Sambal udang petai is most favourite Kelantanse dishes of all times =).  The fresh tantalizing prawn goes so well with the sauce and the petai.  They used the medium size petai that has medium pungent smell and I love it.  This dish is definitely not spicy at all.  In fact I think there is sugar added to tone down the taste of the sambal.




Telur Dadar

Telur dadar is fluffy as I think the chef cooked it to perfection. If one notice, there are few layers inside the omelets making it really tasty and eating it would be like eating trough French pancake-Crepes.



The syrup selasih is quite tasty with chewable selasih.


Lompat tikam

Lompat tikam

By the end of the course, we couldn't stuff the dessert. However, the dessert was the one I was most excited about since I love dessert.

Lompat tikam was presented in such a beautiful way.  Lompat tikam is actually a traditional popular Kelantanse dessert.
The glutinous rice is actually a little hard for my liking but it will soften when soak in the gula kabung and coconut milk.

The soft green pandan kuih is really nice.  It felt like eating pudding. Oooohh, really lovely and not too sweet.  The sweetness is just right.  Yummy.



So sorry, I realise that i didn't even take a single photo of the rice, ayam percik and gulai kawah =(  .  I guess I was too impatient to eat that i totally forgotten about snapping some photos first.  So sorry.

The white rice served was of course high quality as it is grainy and different from the rice that I ate before. It is really a great compliment to accompany all the dishes.

Ayam percik was cooked to perfection and the meat was soft and there was not a single hint of it being oily. I would love to eat it all if not because I am already too full.

The gulai kawah was okay to me as. It wasn't spicy at all but overall the gravy was quite delicious with very subtle hint of spices and coconut milk. The beef was also cooked with technique that it was not chewy at all. =)
