For a truly hearty broth, the sup gearbox from Kedah which contains beef ribs, oxtail, beef tendon and root vegetables is served with potato, celery and fried onions.

One of the more unique dishes was the Telur Itik Masak Lemak, a Negri Sembilan speciality.

Duck eggs and terung pipit (pea eggplant) are cooked in a spicy gravy of coconut cream and bird’s eye chilli.

The Gulai Tempoyak Ikan Patin is definitely an acquired taste. Here, the taste of tempoyak (fermented durian) was not too strong. The fish went well with the slightly salty and sweet gravy.

There are plenty of other dishes at the action stations where the food is cooked on the spot.

The stingray, in particular, was tasty as it was lightly marinated with aromatic herbs and spices before being grilled. The texture was slightly flakey and the hint of lemongrass was a nice surprise.

To add to the festivities, guests will be treated to caklempong performance by local musicians from 6.30pm.
