As the previous Redang island post mentioned, we arrived at Kuala Terengganu 2 hours too early for our boat ride to the island. To kill time and satisfy our stomach, we head to Chinatown, a road aptly called Jalan Kampung Cina at KT for some breakfast.

Even at this primarily Muslim dominated state, Chinese food is actually pretty easy to get, and there’s a  local taste to it too. Most Chinese in Terengganu speaks either Hokkien with a very Penang like accent, or Mandarin. Cantonese is spoken here too but quite a lot less prevalent.

All these basically means that you shouldn’t have any problem ordering food. Unlike the hawker scene in KL that’s dominated by foreigners whom you just don’t know what language to start with when trying to converse with them.

The duck noodle stall offers wantan noodle, roast pork, char siu, and of course, roast duck. Kim and I both ordered the roast duck with wantan noodle (RM 4-6). The meat was very fragrant, tender, and juicy, and I love the abundance of lighter sauce on the noodle with the thicker roast duck sauce on the meat. There’s a bowl of pork wantan soup accompanying the dish.

I wouldn’t mind stopping here for breakfast again if I find myself at KT. Yums!

  1. my mum’s hometown T_________T misses it dearly!

  2. Tey Cindy,
    oOOo yeah I remember you blogged about KT!

  3. Haha! True, that one. I have problems communicating with some waiters not coz of the Cantonese barrier but coz they’re migrants with Cantonese worse than mine.

    …and mine is pretty bad.

  4. Huai Bin,
    Hahahah yeah, well your cantonese is ok la, understandable especially for those who can speak mandarin. 😀

  5. It’s so true. Chinatown in KL is not really Chinatown anymore with the amount of foreign workers here. I guess the Chinatown outstation have more Chinese than Petaling Street.

  6. JD,
    Hahaha yah true, no more Chinese really at Petaling Street. Everything’s just foreigners

  7. I don’t even know where Chinatown in Kt is… sigh!!!

  8. Leo,
    With the GPS and all, now u know! 😀

  9. kimberlycun

    kampung cina ftw!

  10. KT Chinatown is really old school.. in fact many of the buildings there are older than Petaling Street’s. Some of the Redang resorts have offices along the road and they even have jetties at the back from which they sometimes send their guests on to the island by boat. But I think now they no longer do that because KT is a lot further from the island than the usual jetty place (forget the name) further north.

  11. Kimberlycun,

    The jetty is Marang 😀

  12. you eat till KT…really pro…someday i would pay a visit to that stall…
