One of the best nasi kukus ayam berempah in Kuantan, Pahang is found at Seberang Balok.
The east coast delicacy will leave you wanting more.
THE nasi kukus ayam goreng berempah is an east coast delicacy.
It was introduced in the Klang Valley by economic migrants from across the stateline.
You can savour the nasi kukus here, but it’s a totally different experience when you travel to Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.
There is an abundance of roadside stalls selling this rice dish.
So, that said, what is so special about the nasi kukus?
For starters, rice is steamed in an aluminium bowl and served only when an order is placed.
This means that the individually steamed rice is fresh and fragrant.
The ayam goreng berempah (marinated fried chicken) is a side dish, and when it is added to the nasi kukus, a typical meal can come up to RM8 (Klang Valley prices) a plate.
