Henry & Camille @ Damansara Heights – Nasi Dagang Terengganu

I’ve heard some good things about this eatery over the past few month – good ambiance, good food and etc. I decided to delay visiting till dining in is allowed again just so that I could enjoy a wholesome dining experience. However, it looksed like I somehow ended up dropping by earlier than expected.

The trip was not planned. I was driving around Damansara Heights, driving around the block to see if there was anything I’d fancy to have for lunch today. I came across some stalls by the roadside and that piqued my interest. There were two kinds of stalls in the area – stalls that are simply stalls and stalls that are an extension of a proper physical restaurant located a short distance away. This particular stall is the latter and the restaurant it belongs to is Henry & Camille.

*** Stall is located opposite Public Bank.

The Nasi Dagang caught my eye as I am a fan and it has been ages since I’ve last indulged. My friend was uber delighted upon finding out that the dish was Terengganu version. Given that most nasi dagang in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor tend to focus on the Kelantanese version, Terengganu Nasi Dagang is like a needle in a haystack. I never did figure out the difference between the two versions or rather it did not matter much to me. All I cared about was that the local dish was good and tasty. My fellow friends from East Coast though, they know their stuff. They know the difference from all angles and are particular about stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


Nasi Lemak Biasa : RM 4

Nasi Lemak Paru : RM 6

Nasi Dagang : RM 10

Laksam : RM 10

Nasi Dagang, RM 10

So, I was schooled for 5 minutes on the difference between Kelantan and Terengganu’s version of Nasi Dagang. I did not pay much attention lah ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ as I was hungry but the little I grasp was ..

1)When it is wrapped in a leave and bound together by a small piece of wood, it is most likely Terengganu version.

2) The rice is sort of sticky- ish, texture almost similar to ‘pulut’. The taste of coconut milk was evident. White colored rice with some yellow ‘biji’.

Yea, that was all I caught ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Anyways …

As you open the leafy packet, you’d get a serving of rice and a large ‘ikan tongkol’.

Then, add in the ‘kuah’ and cucumber acar that came on the side.

Food was good, I enjoyed the Nasi Dagang. Sure, it certainly was different than the Kelantanese version, most evident difference being the rice … but I liked it. However, if I were to choose between the two versions, I think I’d be swinging towards the Kelantanese version lah. I am used to that compared to this. ๐Ÿ˜
