Breakfast by the Paddy Field: Warung Tepi Sawah, Kangar, Perlis

There isn't a better way to experience Perlis than to have a local breakfast by a paddy field. After all, the main economic activity at the northernmost state in Malaysia is rice farming, so Perlis has nothing short of the most beautiful views of expansive paddy fields and the best rice dishes to offer its visitors.

Breakfast by the Paddy Field: Warung Tepi Sawah, Kangar, Perlis

We arrived at Warung Tepi Sawah a little over 10 in the morning, but it was already brimming with people. Cars of customers were parked on both sides of the road, causing a mild congestion but the food and view that await you will definitely be worth the obstruction and delay.

Once inside, you need to search high and low for a vacant table or stand around and wait until there is one. A server will come to take your orders (although you might need to catch their attention with either a wave or an eye contact as everyone is pretty busy) and everything in the menu except Nasi Lemak will be brought to your table. For Nasi Lemak, simply make your way to the counter up front to grab your own portion.

We had to try everything on the menu.

All the dishes offered here are authentically local - using locally sourced ingredients and cooked the local way. If you are hoping to try dishes that can only be found in this region of the world, be sure to order Roti Peknga - a type of soft coconut flatbread that is dipped in either curry or sambal, as well as Roti Lenggang which is a type of thin savory pancakes very similar to crepes - also to be dipped in curry or sambal. (You'll soon notice that most Malay dishes in Malaysia are wonderfully accompanied by flavorful dips and sauces!)
