Timely boost for Langkawi

NO doubt Pantai Cenang in Langkawi has many food outlets that can delight most palates. But hidden in Padang Mat Sirat, very near  the airport, is a curry house that the regulars pay homage to.

Located next door to a private clinic, the curry house goes by the name of Kalut. You won't find the name on any signboard, but everyone knows it. Or at least the regulars do.

 I don't know how the outlet got its name, but it's been there for a long time. With all the development around Padang Mat Sirat right up to Pantai Cenang, Pantai Kok and Burau Bay, Kalut has survived the test of time.

 Kalut has many meanings, one of which is crazy, or disorderly. I recall customers rushing for food at the stall in the early days, which could have prompted the name.

 In fact, it survived very well. The house specialty is fish curry cooked to order.   You can select the fish you want and it'll be served piping hot.  Add freshly fried ikan kembong or tenggiri, and you have a finger-licking dinner.

 Share a plate of ulam  with really spicy sambal belacan and you have a dinner to remember. I know friends who time their arrival at the legendary island to coincide with Kalut's opening time --  around 6pm.

AL :-
In-fact what the article said its true. The island was negleted for nearly 2 terms by former PM. Well, hopefully it will change in the future. With the start of the boost from Federal Government. LADA should not be so haste on using the fund. Apart from infrastructure the money should be channel to train local tourist guide who is not only knows to bring people around but knows how to explain to the tourist in terms of History, Culture & Nature. This 'ilmu' will only be available if training is provided.
