Alif's: Curries and Roti...
Written by Mez77 on August 20, 2003


Alif's is extremely popular with local's and visitors alike. At all hours of the day, the place is completely full. Including at 4am when you are coming home from a night at local bars. It has a large outside area so you can eat on the street with scrawny cats walking around your ankles. It is certainly an experience and I rarely spent a day in Kuantan that I didn't eat a meal at Alif's. It is also extremely good value. A meal of curry and roti can cost less than US$0.50.

Roti and fish head curry. Very tasty!!
