If there's one destination in Malaysia where you can dine while enjoying the ocean breeze, it's Kuantan. With plenty of halal beachside restaurants, you've got plenty of options for a meal with a view. But if you want to take it a step further, Ombok Cherating is the place to be.
Located in Cherating, this quaint halal cafe is a famous surfers’ hotspot known for their friendly service, good food, and chill vibes. When the monsoon season hits, Ombok Cherating Surf School (located right next to the cafe), attracts locals and tourists alike for its many activities, primarily surfing!
Serving dishes such as English breakfast, fried rice, and sandwiches all day, this is the perfect breakfast, lunch and dinner spot. And if you've got a sweet tooth, we heard that their mango cheesecake is simply exquisite! But if you're not looking for a meal or dessert, then just kick back and relax with one of their many selections of high-quality coffees.
Don't forget to bring your phone or camera along as the surf cafe is filled with Insta-worthy moments everywhere you turn. They also sell art souvenirs for you to bring back home as a memento for yourself, or for your loved ones.
