Gulai Kerutuk Itik Serati

by Ali on Fri, July 28, 2017

A huge piece of duck is marinated for hours, absorbing all the delicious gravy and is tenderized in the long cooking process. Eat it together with their nasi dagang or nasi kerabu for a very, very scrumptious breakfast. The laksam is also worthy of mention, the homemade rolled up flat noodles is just a treat to bite into, with a lovely fish broth to go with it...

Holy Duck!

Think of the east coast and you will conjure up images of thick spice-laden gulais, colourful rice with ulam, seafood broths and fish being the dominant protein. The sheer array of cuisines available there means there is something for everyone. In the big city there are now numerous places that serve east coast food, but often it pales in comparison with the real deal. So when we find a worthy place, we just get a little excited.

Warung Gulai Kerutuk Itik Serati is named after a popular Kelantan dish. It's not often you find a good Malay duck dish on offer everyday.

The main attraction of the shop of course is Gulai Kerutuk Itik Serati. Itik Serati is a species of duck which is bigger than your normal quicker and as a result, the pieces are ginormous! We have to put it in a separate plate because it won't fit with the rice and veggies.

The Gulai Kerutuk is filled with aromatic spices straight from Kelantan. They mention that the spices are different from those sold in KL, hence to maintain an authentic taste, it is ordered in from the east coast. The duck is cooked for hours so the meat absorbs all the spices and become tender in the process. Think of a duck slowly braised in a spicy gravy. Have it with their nasi dagang or nasi kerabu it's your pick.

Their laksam is made from scratch too. Rice batter is ladled on the back of trays and then rolled up into soft rolls. Such a pleasure to bite into. Combine it with its thick fish soup and vegetables and you have a winning combination.

They serve an array of dishes to choose from for breakfast. You can find your usual nasi dagang and nasi kerabu here, and also apam pisang. If you are craving for some east coast breakfast, we highly recommend this place.
