Rendang Tok & Lemang

@ Tapah highway

There is a young Malay chap who sells lemang, ketupat, rendang tok, serunding and dodol near the entrance where TNB is. Try it if you haven’t eat rendang tok before.

What is rendang tok? It is dry beef curry which is very flavourful. The taste of lemongrass gives the rendang a very nice taste. The beef is tender and melt in the mouth and the spices and herbs take away the gamey smell of beef.

The other day when I was travelling to KL, I found a stall at the Tapah Highway stop selling similar things. Then, there is also a stall in Jusco in Midvalley. Somehow the one I bought from Lorong Kulit is much nicer.



The first photo is the lemang while the above is the ketupat. Though they are made of almost the same thing, they taste different if these are cooked nicely. I love the ketupat from Lorong Kulit. Now that I talked about it, I almost want to drive to Lorong Kulit tomorrow morning and get some.

The rendang tok from the Tapah highway stop come in huge pots. Business is brisk and these are sold by grammes. I have forgotten how much but they ain’t cheap as a small container costs about RM10.

A close up of the rendang tok. It is not to be confused with the regular rendang because this is the dry version and doesn’t have the overpowering taste of santan. Instead, it is more tangy and less ‘jelak’ when taken with lemang or ketupat.

Selamat Hari Rayeee.....hehehehehe
