Keropok Lekor

Fish sausage known as keropok lekor

If there is one thing that stood out among the curiosities in the east coast of Malaysia, then it’s the keropok lekor (fish sausage). So far I have only seen it being served as fried from the street vendors to market eating stalls, and in a kopitiam’s menu.

Keropok lekor has a strong fish taste that unlike the fish balls I’ve snacked on in the Philippines, this one has definitely more fish in its fish:flour ratio.

Keropok lekor as a common street food

By the way, as I write this I kept thinking that I’ve seen this thing somewhere in Sabah. So I perused my Kota Kinabalu photographs and found two pictures. At that time I had no idea what lekor was. It was a one-time encounter unlike the plentiful lekor encounters in Kota Bharu.
