Kelantanese cuisine is made of sweety creamy dishes like the nasi kerabu (herbal rice), ayam percik (grilled chicken with a creamy coconut taste), and nasi dagang (rice with tuna fish curry). The best places to sample the local cuisine is at the night markets in Kota Bharu, the capital of Kelantan.
Kelantanese are known for their handicraft skills and intricate workmanship and as such, they have made a thriving cottage industry out of generations of skilled craftsmen.
