.. famous among Indonesians & some Malaysians (especially of Javanese origin), this fermented soybean hardly made its way into Kelantanese cuisines and almost not known among locals & almost non-existence in the markets across Kelantan. I was lucky to find this one, hidden among various colorful vegetables, fish sauce & other village-produce at Siti Khadijah Wet Market in Kota Bharu... Sold in very limited numbers, small size, ideal to locals who normally do not consume it... I believe, this rare "specimen" is made by someone in Kelantan who believes that there must be somebody in the state who craze for this type of food .. and that person, whoever she/he is, through her/his decent-looking, one & only "tempe" product in Kelantan, had at least found me.. an avid lover of Tempe, the Malaysian "nattou"..
