Fish Crackers Ikan Tongkol Kelantanese Nasi Dagang Rice

Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan @ Damansara Uptown – Still my all time favorite (Halal)

Oklah, so this eatery needs no introduction. I am sure in the years since it came into existence, you’d all been here at least once. Me???? It has been a good long year since I last stepped foot here and naturally I was all excited ..  🙂

The only thing I was interested in – besides the good food they offer was whether after a year,  will the food standard still be as good as it was or has it declined? It is a common worry – is it not?  So.. has it decline? Nopeeee! I am happy to report – food still is as delicious!!





Fish Crackers, 3.50 ringgit + Kelantanese Laksa, 8.90 ringgit + Nasi Dagang Ikan Tongkol & Curry Chicken, 11.90 ringgit 


So …. I started of my food indulging session here with some fish crackers.


For just 3.50 ringgit , you would get 10 + large pieces of tasty, crunchy fish crackers. Besides it being yummy, I think it is pretty authentic. Most of the crackers I usually see sold on this side of the country are usually grey-ish, whiteish which usually means they added quite a bit of flour in but the ones here though are brownish which suggest that there is quite a bit of fish in it. Yum!!



Now this dish, I’ve never had it before and I ordered it because I was curious. I must say – it certainly was difference from every other laksa I’ve tasted. None of the usual heat, flavor and spices but it sure was tasty. The gravy was different, we could not decide on what it tasted like besides the fact that it was milky. I was adamant that it tasted like ‘Gulai Ikan’ and my friend was pretty sure it tasted like ‘Kuah Ayam Perchik’ – how on earth he came up with that description boggles me, lol. It tasted nothing like Ayam Perchilk lah.  I guess I won though because in the Menu, it is stated that it basically is thick fish gravy – yessss! It is thick and milky, real flavorful with no resemblance at all to the usual laksa we get here. It sure was an eye opener. The is no meat in it, none of the usual fishes, just 3 different components of vegetables + noodles + gravy. It may sound simply but it certainly was filling.



This, right here, is da’ bomb! It was the bomb 1 year ago and it still is the bomb. Sedap ooooooo 🙂  As expected, the gravy was flavorful and sweet and the ikan tongkol was delicious. The chicken came in a drumstick, it was tender, meaty and juicy. When you mix all the items on the plate and then have a go at it – sooo utterly delicious. 


Would I head back here?

Of course. I will certainly be back.
