Best Nasi Kerabu in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

It’s never a surprise that rural Malaysian delicacies are inspiringly innovative, even before culinary courses and Instagram raving culture existed. Nasi Kerabu epitomes the statement out-and-out, an elaborate Kelantanese dish that serves as a true sensory treat, visually stimulating and packed with flavours. The striking blue colour of the rice is extracted from butterfly pea flowers and infused with rich herbs. The mound of rice is usually paired with prawn crackers, solok lada, fried mackerel, salted egg, ulam, torch ginger, coconut floss and spicy chicken, well just to name a few. Preserving culinary traditions as their pride, eateries below devotes to teleport you to the east coast via your taste buds.
