Hawker food at T&L Kuantan food review

If there's any popular street food here, one of the must visit is T&L Kuantan. Embrace yourself with the outdoor heat and the bustling of the town when dining here.

Restaurant T&L
Lorong Seri Kuantan 46, East Coast Garden, 25300 Kuantan
Opens daily 6pm to 12am

The must order here is the fried kuay teow. Full of the aroma and the heat of the wok, this is how the dish should be done. With a generous amount of prawns, cockles and bean sprouts, the boss will also add some spiciness to it upon order. The cockles here are fresh and cooked so don't worry about having them. I'll easily attest this to the best char kuay teow in kuantan!

The next signature dish here is their baked fish. At RM36, one gets a gigantic whole sting ray drizzled in a huge portion of sambal and sliced winged bean, it's definitely a good deal. I love how juicy the fish is, when dipped into the lime and chili sauce, the flavors are even more enhanced. Wrapped in banana leaf, that's how ikan bakar should be.

Noodles lovers should also try Lor Mee. It's a hearty bowl of noodles cooked in rich and thickened caramel and egg drop soup with condiments such as shredded chicken breasts, fishball and sliced fish cake. Drizzled with crispy fried shallots and fresh spring onions, it tastes best with a few splashes of vinegar.

As for snacking, we absolutely enjoy the fruit rojak there. It's a yummy combination of pineapple, cucumber, guava, green mango, fried tofu and char keow. The generous amount of prawn paste, chili and peanuts make it all the better.

So these are the top four things that I think one should definitely try at T&L! If you wake up early in the morning, you can also try their rice noodles soup with shredded chicken. Cheap and satisfying. Sweet chicken stock with huge portion.

So for the sake of awesome street food, our verdict for these three dishes are 8.5/10! Read more about awesome food at kuantan here
