Otak Otak - Otah Otah Muar (the best of the best lah)

look at the date stamp of this picture...
i was looking at my achieve ... i have like over 200++
worth of food and places and things to blog
waakkakakakakaka

ok lets start off with Muar FAMOUS Otah Otah
actually it's not Otak Otak ... it's actually Otah ....
fresh mackerel (tenggiri) fish are used in the making of otah,
it's actually, fish cake wrapped in daun nipah and not daun kelapa



daun kelapa (coconut's leaves do not have this broad leaves..
only Nipah has it and these are the same leaves that makes
atap or nipah leaves roofingwhen bbq the nipah leaves will emit a strong aroma and thus
grilled the fish cake ... that's makes one otah very very
oromatic and delicious ..

fish cake recipe are simply dried cayenne, onions, wheat flour,
salt, coconut's milk, fresh slices of mackerel,
shallots, garlic, viniger and oil...

otah is an origins or Muar river chinese food ... and the picture
above are the 100% original from Muar, Jalan Bakariah
Taman Bakariah BEST IN THE WORLD OTAH!!!

15/10 super overrated ... because i've tasted
6 different otah maker in Muar .. none beats this one ...
of cos there are more then 30 places that sell otah ..
all trace back to these 6 otah maker ...

the rest in Muar are simply second best or 3rd.

the origin of otah .... yet to find out
