For dinner we had a special local fish snack called keropok lekor, made with fish meat and sago flour/starch, then deep fried and served with a chilli sauce.

Every state in Malaysia has their own take on laksa, and in Terengganu, they have, in fact, two versions - "kuah merah" (red broth) and "kuah putih" (white broth).
The one has the rice noodles in a reddish, curry-like soup.

In this one, the rice noodles are in a whitish soup, and it has a lighter taste, which I prefer.

The next morning, for breakfast, we tried keropok lekor again, but this time, the fish sausage was boiled or steamed.

We also indulged in the soft, sweet and buttery "roti paung", served with extra butter and kaya on the side.

After this, we took a ferry to Pulau Redang - but we came back for more later, as you shall see!
