Feeding Time at Pulau Kapas, Terengganu

The variety of food on the small island maybe limited but good. There were 5 (I think) budget resorts with own eating outlets. We visited 2 in our recent 2 nights stay.

Before boating over to the island, we took a safe Malaysian breakfast - Roti Canai with Teh Tarik.This was the only stall opened during that morning at the jetty.For lunch on Pulau Kapas aka Cotton Island, we discovered a Dutch owned budget resort, Kapas Beach Chalet (KBC).
Lime JuiceFresh Fish Set which came with Rice, Fish (own choice of cooking style). Chose Sweet Sourand a plate of cut Watermelon and Pineapple.
2 orders of Special Fried RicePancake (own choice of honey, syrup, jam, butter or everything since it was self service)Bill:-Verdict? Did you see the portions? We went back for dinner.

Burgers with a complimentary plate of fruits.
Bill:-
Though it was quite a distance from where we stayed, Duta Puri Resort, nothing beats a breezy sandy walk by a calm blue sea before breakfast. So the next day, we sat at the same table for Toasts!
No food picture, only bill (sowry):-After a spot of beach side snorkelling, back for lunch.

We had rice with an order of Fish done in Ginger Soya sauce,Prawns & Squids in Curry.Mixed vegetables in Ginger Tumeric sauceComplimentary plate of FruitsBill:-
Haha by now you must think dinner would be no different.

Wrong.

We chose Kapas Island Resort since there's quite a crowd there. And much nearer to where we stayed.
Free Fish Crackers as appetisersMee BandungChicken ChopMee Goreng MamakFish & ChipsBill:-Last day on island, we went to bid farewell at KBC by breaking fast there.

Coffee with sumptous Egg SandwichesBill:-
Maybe you noticed that no meals were taken at Duta Puri Resort. Well its restaurant was empty at all times so it did not look promising.

jason said...

Hahaha.. how come no pics on food but only the bill?

Tummythoz said...

me.. only better, welcome! Hope to hear good things about KBC accom soon. Hapi hols!

kampungboycitygal, very laid back & cosy. There's a permanent cook but any of the staff or even guest there may conquer the kitchen once a while.

jason, famished-lor. Only realise after a few bites. By then, the toasts were not 'presentable'.
