NORTHERN FOOD

I don't write about food that much. Just to break the stereotype usually and conveniently attached to fat people, I guess. When skinny people write about food, that's because they enjoy their food - they are called connoiseurs. When fat people write about food, they'd say that's all they can think about. Hey, we fat people think about other things too, just so you know.

Jalan-jalan cari makan is KNizam's area, fleshed out in his makanmalaya blog, which, contrary to the name, had gone international recently as the contents these days include makan-makan Pakistan as well.

However, a recent NST's write up on some of the good food up North caught my attention today and I think worthy to be rehashed here. The write up was very informative, chronicling some of the places of good food (according to the writer) in Kedah. Most of the places are from Alor Setar and further up.

Out of the 10 places mentioned in the article, I have been only to Laksa Teluk Kechai. I however found that the laksa to watery to my liking and have tasted better at home. I think my mother makes better laksa. I have probably tasted Mee Abu at Mpro's house or with Pak Tuan Syed but cannot say for sure.

You can read more here TOP PICKS: Northern Delicacies. But I think the name is quite misleading. The foods in the article are not necessarily northern food. What is northern food anyway? More apt, I'd say - 'Good Food Up North' or something like that.

nothing out of the ordinary je list ni, sebab kalau aku balik rumah mertua aku sah2 makan kat rumah. lagi kaw2..

tapi kalau nak makan kat luar gak, it's moi daging @ bangunan ukur and nasi kandar hj ramli @ simpang empat.

aku pun tak berapa minat laksa teluk kechai

true,true...

Aku bet Pak Tuan ada list yang lagi credible. Cumanya keobjektifan dia agak goyang dan boleh dipersoal bila mai masuk bab harga, hahaha...
