Nasi Dagang
Nasi Dagang . what I can say about this dishes is , this exquisite cuisine is essentially the main dishes from Terengganu Darul Iman. So why do they named it as a Nasi Dagang ? Well,‘Dagang’  is practically means going travelling or in Malay words ‘berdagang’ and in those days ,most are of trading trips. It is practical to pack along the Nasi Dagang to be eaten along the way in the journey, and that is how the Nasi was named. On the other hand,usually Nasi Dagang was eaten with its side dishes vegetables pickles ,fish curry and add up with boiled eggs. Nowadays it is serves not only in house but also in hotels and resorts as part of a signature dish of Terengganu.
