Beautiful Terengganu: Restoran Kampong Meraga Beris, Resorts World Kijal

Resorts World Kijal is just a short drive from Kemaman and Kerteh, Terengganu and in my humble opinion, it is the only decent hotel within this locality. Previously the hotel was known as Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa Resort and comes with its own private beach. Some of the hotel’s facilities are not only opened to staying guests but also opened to public for a small fee.

There are plenty of interesting things you can do in Resorts World Kijal, but if you are a foodie, you’d appreciate the fact that their restaurants offers to spoil your appetite at a decent price.

My family and I had the opportunity to have lunch and breakfast at Restaurant Kampong Meraga Beris in Resorts World Kijal during our previous trip and I have to say that I’m particularly impressed with their food offerings. Restoran Kampung Meraga Beris is quite spacious and designed to look very traditional.

Nasi Kerabu is a steamed rice dish mixed with various herbs, especially the leaves of pegagan or often replaced with kemangi, vegetables, spices and accompanied with various side dishes. It was out of this world.

Savoury kuih like Cucur Ikan Bilis is also available, and this was my absolute favourite that day.

Local fruits to cleanse your palate

My boys and I ended up trying a little of everything and by the time we were done, it was almost one hour non stop indulging.

Overall, the food offered here in Restaurant Kampong Meraga Beris is really delicious but a forewarning though, most of the dishes were on the spicy side, so drink plenty of water and juices to keep the spiciness at bay.

The restaurant is opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
