What to eat in Kota Bahru?
Kelantan is home to some of the most authentic Malay cuisines and it is here where the yummy blue Nasi Kerabu was born. Nasi Kerabu is rice dyed blue from the colouring of a blue flower called the Clitoria. It is served with crackers accompanied with salad on the side. To give it a kick, some add Budu, an anchovy sauce that has a tangy taste to it. One can find Nasi Kerabu at any corner of Kelantan what more in Kota Bharu itself. Check out Kak Na’s Mee Celup for some tantalizing mee hoon in chicken soup, lime and bean sprouts. If you want some naturally sweetened Teh Tarik then Warung Pak Mat Pulau Pisang is the place to be for some honey filled Teh Tarik Madu that will make you ask for another cup. Come along and visit Kelantan, mix with the locals and try to catch their funky dialect.
