Kerteh Airport @ Kerteh, Terengganu

It's flight time back to Kuala Lumpur and here we are at the Kerteh Airport. Just to give some background on this airport, it is a very small airport and it is owned and operated by Petronas via it's East Coast Regional Office. This airport was built to serve the purpose of airlifting its employees to the various oil platforms located 100 to 200 kilometers offshore South China Sea. Today Firefly does fly to this airport from Subang.

Inside The Airport

The One and Only Restaurant Here
As we have had to skip lunch today, I was thinking of getting some food at the airport but they only have a small cafeteria here. It was already close to 1730 and most of the food had been sold out. For the menu, it seems that they only serve basic food like Nasi Lemak, Fried Rice etc. Having none of those available at this hour, I had to settle for some snacks and tea. You may wonder why I am writing this blog about this restaurant. It is all about two things. Firstly to prepare fellow travelers on the facilities available at this airport and not to end up starving like me. The second reason, I shall be mentioning shortly. 

My Friends
Both of my friends are very sporting as you can see from the poses both yesterday and today. We've all been starving except for the breakfast at the hotel this morning and thats why we have a little stressed look on us. Now, at this cafe we've had two Teh Tariks and one Teh O. The Teh Tarik cost us RM 0.70 each and the Teh O cost us RM 0.50 each. Well, I am very sure that you can not get such prices in Kuala Lumpur. This airport restaurant is really priced like a staff canteen. The Teh Tarik, was pretty good and I would rate it at 8/10 . Just do remember to mention that you like it less sugar as people in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia love to have their drinks really sweet....I mean really really sweet. 

Keropok Lekor. 5 @ RM 0.50
Now this is the second reason that I am writing this entry and making it available to the public. I have never had Keropok Lekor this fresh, even at any other restaurant or stall in Pahang and Terengganu. This was really fresh and it was priced at RM 0.10 per piece. In Kuala Lumpur, you would get this at RM 0.25 - RM 0.30 per piece and that too would not be as fresh as this. The taste was really good and you do not need the Chili Sauce to dip it in. It's good as it is. If you happen to be at this airport, do not miss the opportunity to try this. Really good stuff. I would rate this Keropok Lekor at 10/10 .
