Riau Islands (Culinary) Trips in March 2013: Kue Deram Deram, Penyengat Island

If we have kue Ali Agrem in Bandung, then people in Tanjung Pinang (or Penyegat Island) have kue Deram Deram. If you're not familiar with kue Ali Agrem or some people might called it kue Cincin then maybe you know about kue Cuhcur. Well, these three snacks are similar in taste, but the kue Ali Agrem is more similar in taste and appearance with kue Deram Deram. The shape like donuts and the taste is very sweet.

The snacks only available in Penyengat Island. The island has been known as tourist attraction in Tanjung Pinang, and to reach the island you have to take small boat. Based on Wikipedia, on Penyengat Island they have the old ruler's palace and royal tombs, among them the grave of the respected Raja Ali Haji, who was the creater and author of the first Malay Language grammar book, are one of the many legacies left by the Riau sultanate. The one which still in use is the old vice-royal mosque, the Mesjid Raya. To take you around the island, they have becak look a like transportation.

Actually, I like kue Ali Agrem, so I can't resist this kue Deram Deram. It has become our accompanying snack through our journey to Lagoi, Bintan. Well, we still kept one box to bring it as a gift to Bandung.
