6 HALAL Foods in Belitung Island You Should Try (HALAL certified)

Salam and hey foodies!

Honestly, what kinda traveler are you? are you a nature seeker? city mapper? or perhaps a foodies? haha admittedly, im a foodies! testing out the local foods is a must-thing-to-do whenever i go traveling but sometimes the HALAL aspect prevented me from doing.

Nah, Belitung islands is widely practicing Islam as their religious. so, HALAL foods is not an issue. i was in  Belitung on the last December 2018 and i got to try few restaurants / Rumah Makan (RM) that serves very nice local dishes and they are certified with HALAL certification. yey!

Kabupaten Belitung, Kepulauan Bangka Belitung 33411, Indonesia

This Timpo Duluk ranked as no.1 in my list as it provides you a total experience of dining in Belitung! from the authentic foods served in a traditional way to the vintage decoration. the waiters even explained the right way to dine in Belitung culture which an oldest person in a group should open up the food cover, then the youngest person should scope the rice for all the diners. interesting!

Personally, i feel that the foods in here is different with other resto which it is closer to my hometown dishes. my favorite is the "sambal kelapa" eat with the Cassava Leaves or Daun Pucuk Ubi Kayu! Oh yar, they even provides you a huge outdoor stage for a karaoke session downstairs (sorry forgot to snap a photo of it!).

Kepulauan Bangka Belitung, Indonesia

I promise you that this Rumah Makan FEGA will satisfy your appetite. the full name is actually FEGA Seafood Restaurant which means they are specialized in seafood. trust me, the foods is real good! and they served it whilst its still hot. haha penting tau! all of us agree that the cumi or squid or we named it Deep Fried Calamari Rings is the best. so, you should try it!

The restaurant is very wide, comfortable and therefore, it is suitable for a big group of people. as it locates near the lake, they have like a some sort of jetty which is so instagrammable! yup you can do some photoshoot while waiting for the foods to be ready on your table.

Jl. Sudirman No.12, Perawas, Tj. Pandan, Kabupaten Belitung,
Kepulauan Bangka Belitung 33413, Indonesia

You should know by now that the local love seafood so much! the location is near to the airport and that makes it the first restaurant we went once arrived in Belitung. it was already dark and we were extremely exhausted and famish! so, the seafood looks super appealing OMG especially the crab! lets "judge a book by its cover" because the crab cook with sweet sauce tasted super delicious! although i usually opt my crab to cook in Salted eggs and Kam heong style but this one is still acceptable. i enjoyed it so much!

A thumbs up should be given to the seafood quality as they are fresh and delectable! haha again, i don't prefer my prawn to be cooked with soy sauce but hey, this one is still good tho. haha sorry, imma quite fussy when it comes talking about foods and cooking style because my utmost favourite foods is chinese cuisine. so, i always tend to get distracted by it lorh.

We dine in an air-conditioned room which is more privacy. they have another space outside the room which is a semi-outdoor area and the parking area is spacious too.

Air Merbau, Tanjung Pandan, Belitung Regency,
Bangka Belitung Islands 33412, Indonesia

Just another seafood dinner on our last day in Belitung. OMG Belitung is such a heaven for me because imma SEAFOOD LOVER! haha so it might be a bit bias though. well, based on my research lot of Indonesian people coming to Belitung just for the sake of devouring the seafood cuisine. haha i guess im at the right place lol

So, this Rumah Makan is big enough for a group visit. they also have a big stage for karaoke session, perhaps you wanna show your talent, this resto is the one! haha OK lets talk about the foods. my favurite pick is that Grilled prawns! besides, the fish. everything is fresh and simply nice!

5. MEE BELITUNG @ Hanggar 21 Hotel Restaurant

Jalan Jendral Sudirman KM 11,8, Buluh Tumbang, 
Tanjung Pandan, Buluh Tumbang, Tj. Pandan,
Kabupaten Belitung, Kepulauan Bangka Belitung 33413, Indonesia

As the name mentioned, this restaurant is located inside a hotel. the dining hall is wide, very clean and comfortable. the location is just near to the airport. so, you might plan your itinerary to stop by here before your departure as obviously, its quite hard to find foods in the airport.

Well honestly, i feel that this Mee Belitung is nothing different with the Mee Jawa sold here in Malaysia. perhaps, im not a fan of mee? so it might effected my judgement. the sauce is light, not really flavoring yet its a simple meal to prevent you from starving during the flight back to your hometown lol. but based on my research, lot of people saying that you should actually taste their coffee! my mistake tho for not ordering any. so, good luck!

6. Fried Banana Cheese @ KONG DJIE COFFEE

Jl. Serma AbdullahTanjung Pandan,
Belitung Island 33412, Indonesia

As a coffee addict, hunting for the local coffee shop is a must-thing-to-do whenever i go traveling! so, Kong Djie is a well-known coffee branch in Belitung and this one in Tanjung Pandan is the oldest among all! existed since 1943, this coffee shop is always pack with crowd. it is just a small shop at the corner of a Jln Serma Abdullah road and it looks super authentic. oh i love that window part! haha

The best thing about this shop is the coffee is brewed in a traditional way and comes with condensed milk if you pick the Milk Coffee. haha its cute when you can pour the milk based on your own tastebuds as they will give you the whole tin! lol Then, talking about the FRIED BANANA CHEESE which all of us well aware that it is Indonesian most famous street foods. so, you should try on this Belitung style of Fried Banana as it might be different with the one you ate at Bandung, Jakarta or Bali or any other place in Indonesia.
