Will also offer other Terengganu dishes.
KEMAMAN: Nasi dagang, the traditional food of Terengganu, is set to make its debut in Perth when the T-Kafe opens next year.
Besides the fish and rice dish, the outlet owned by the Terengganu Entrepreneurs' Foundation (YPU), will also offer other traditional Terengganu dishes.
State exco for rural development, entrepreneurs and cooperatives, Datuk Mohamed Awang Tera, told Bernama Friday that also to be sold were otak-otak, paih and crackers.
There are some 40,000 Malays in Australia and this is one opportunity for YPU to market the products of the small and medium industries of Terengganu via T-Kafe, Mohamed said.
T-Kafe will also offer Terengganu made handicrafts, textiles and the roselle beverage.
Mohamed said YPU will be working together with a Malay entrepreneur in Perth for this purpose. He is a successful restaurateur in Perth. The Perth Royal Show 2011 earlier this month had brought the parties together.
YPU has six T-Kafe restaurants in Terengganu and the Perth branch will be its first overseas.
