Padang Matsirat Restaurant
Where and What to Eat in Padang Matsirat
Home to Langkawi International Airport, Padang Matsirat does not boast much in the way of good eateries; if truth be told it is a relatively-undeveloped beachside with only one or two good budget-friendly restaurants in its vicinity.
The roadside Malay restaurants – owned and run by villagers – are a dime a dozen but most people would not venture to eat at one unless it came highly recommended by locals. The ambiance is not necessarily desirable and Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah are located so close by that you’ll obviously head on over there instead.
BNZ Sempoy’y Nasi Campur
It may as hot as blue blazes in this stall but the tasty fare will more than make up for it. There’s such a wide variety of dishes to go with your rice – try the ayam masak lemak and the sambal grilled fish – that you’ll be hard-pressed to make a choice. Operated by a husband-and-wife team, the food here is exceptionally cheap and worth every cent.
- Opening Hours: 11:00 – 14:30
- Location: Stall 3, Gerai Mara, Padang Matsirat (opposite Masjid Padang Matsirat)
Kuih Stall Next To Masjid Padang Matsirat
This roadside stall is especially popular on Fridays when the mosque has prayers; featuring over 30 types of Malay kuih, this stall is usually pretty crowded. Try the fresh and not overly-sweet kuih lapis, kuih bengkang and goring pisang; prices are exceptionally cheap for your teatime treats.
- Opening Hours: 12:30 – 17:30
- Location: Opposite BnZ Sempoy’y Nasi Campur, Padang Matsirat
