Local Snack, Keropok Lekor

"Lekor, lekor, lekor, lekor!!! 5 biji 1 Ringgit (5 pieces for RM1)!!! Mari, mari, mari, mari (Come, come, come, come)!!!"

Too shy to take the stall's photo lah. :P

Located in a housing estate (Piasau Garden) in Miri, Julia Fatimah Keropok Lekor is a small stall by the roadside which produces delicious Keropok Lekor.

This is neither dried tofu nor "you char kueh".

Keropok Lekor is a local delicacy which is made by grinding fish (I don't know what kind of fish they use) into paste, mix with sago and then deep frying it.

Dip in a kind of special sauce.

Keropok Lekor is eaten with a kind of special sauce which is given free. The sauce tastes almost the same like the sweet chilli sauce. I have tasted this sauce at the other Keropok Lekor's stalls but I prefer the sauce prepared by this stall.

Yummy~!

Compare to the most common keropok (cracker) which is flat and crispy, Keropok Lekor is quite different as it is long and chewy.

Keropok Lekor is definitely a tasty snack. Keropok Lekor always earns two thumbs up from those who have tasted it.

So, why don't you spend just RM1 to try this mouth watering snack?

You should go to the east Coast to try the real keropok lekor. I went to Kuantan 2 years ago and my friend brought me to this stall which sells genuine lekors. They are so supper yummy. You can actually taste fish! Heheh. The lekors we usually eat taste plasticy.. but who cares, still nice lah.

Can even taste fish! haha! I think I better find some sponsors now for my West Malaysia trip, to taste some of the nice food. haha!

My wife is from Kuantan.
She always say: Keropok lekor from Kuantan is the best

firehorse: You are slower by a step leh. haha! I like both keropok lekor and the flat keropok. Chinese New Year coming soon and I think I got to eat the flat keropok everywhere I go! haha! Aiyo, I never try other places keropok lekor leh. Cannot do a comparison here...

dr ve thru: Nehh..the one in the photo is keropok lekor loh. Errmm...this keropok I also don't know why it's not crunchy. Maybe because it's rolled into a tube shape? haha! You come back M'sia and try loh. :)

yenjai: Mind sending some Kuantan's keropok lekor to Miri here? :P

I tried the keropok lekor made in the state of terengganu in west malaysia. Mostly all black black things! looks very unappetizing at first man. I think the most important thing is the chilli dip, followed by hot from the wok keropok lekor.. (cold ones will not be nice at all)

Kok said...

las montanas: yaya, it's somehow very black when it's raw. And it looks like smake!!! It took me quite some time before I finally decided to try the keropok lekor:P
