All the way from Mukah

We stopped at the wet market along the waterfront in Mukah as we wanted to buy some yummy goodies back.  There were not many people around the town yesterday and totally almost deserted too in the market other than the traders.  Mostly vegetable traders. I guess everyone was not in town or off somewhere for the holiday.

Back to the market, we went to the trader stalls where they sell all the local snacks and goodies such as the fish crackers & prawns crackers, belacan, sago, sago worm, tebaloi etc. By the way, Mukah is famous for fresh fish and produces. 

The grandpa and the grandchildren looking at all those goodies

Keropok on display.  Mostly sell at RM6.00 per pack

Have you eaten those snack and food as a kid??  I do.  But some snacks I never seen before. 

Other than keropok I also bought some dried prawns

And belacan.  Not many on sales yesterday.

One of Mukah's specialties is the tasty and sweet tebaloi.  A kind of coconut snack.

We wanted to taste some umai for lunch yesterday but unfortunately they did not serve it.  Maybe out of stock.  So we look for some umai to buy in the market too but that too didn't happen.  We were out of luck yesterday.

It was a tiring trip as the road is pretty bumpy.  But we did have a great time in Mukah.

Been so long since I last was there. Not sure if it was open but Nibong Restaurant has very very nice "local" food, located next to the Dewan Suarah in Mukah. My friend owns the place.

Too bad you didn't got a chance to taste the Mukah Umai. Probably because it was weekend or due to the rainy season. I miss going to Mukah again..

Tebaloi is a coconut snack where they baked it. Umai is local delicacy using raw fishes marinated with raw papaya etc. Something like perserved food.
