Delicious, authentic Terengganu food at Mek-T, Puchong.

Cindy often blogged about her mom’s cooking and I would literally froth at the mouth with envy and longing.

So, when I heard that Cindy’s parents have opened a restaurant, I was ecstatic! At last, Cindy’s mom is sharing her food with everyone else and you and I can get to taste it!

Hailing from Terengganu, a large state on the east of Malaysia peninsular famous for its islands, turtles and petroleum industry, Cindy’s mom offers delicacies from her hometown at the restaurant.

Thanks to Cindy’s parents and in particular, Mrs. Tey, we can now get to eat authentic and delicious Terengganu food right in the middle of Klang Valley.

# – Ladies and gentlemen, Mek-T!

Mek-T has a bright, clean and comfortable ambiance with nicely spaced out tables.

# – Bright, clean and comfortable.

# – If you’re lucky, you might get to be served by the gorgeous Cindy too ;)

# – The partial menu..

# – Laksa Terengganu, springy noodles served with a superb gravy and loads of fresh bean sprouts. Carol ate this and loved it!

# – Laksam, which is by far my favourite dish. Soft, springy homemade noodles served with a coconut mackerel gravy and fresh vegetables. The dollop of spicy sambal gave it a yummy kick.

# – Everything’s served in paper bowls as Mek-T is a restaurant with a fast food concept.

# – Oh, look….the perfect spoon of laksam! Fresh, flavoursome and addictive!

# – The BF digging into his Nasi Sedappp Sokmo, the house special.

# – Nasi Sedappp Sokmo, fluffy basmati rice served with delicious chicken & egg curry with a side of special tangy pineapple sambal. Epitome of comfort food!

# – We also had the Rojak, a sort of local fruit salad. Fresh, crunchy fruits with superb dressing.

# – If you’re up for something a little sweet and savoury, check out the Mek Pau Goreng, pan fried buns with luxurious red bean filling.

# – Of course, you can’t miss out on Terengganu’s most famous dish, the Keropok Lekor. Mek-T’s version is 90% fish meat so you’re guaranteed to be tasting the best Lekor you can get your hands on.

We truly enjoyed ourselves at Mek-T. Although food was quick (it’s afterall a fast food style restaurant), you could really taste that every single morsel was made with fresh, high quality ingredients.

If there’s one less than stellar thing that I have to point out about Mek-T….well, it’s the choice of music played. Cindy…if you’re reading this, can you please get rid off the rempit mat-rock songs please? Hahaha.
