This self-ser­vice restau­rant of­fers more than the usual au­then­tic nasi ker­abu.

Ha­lal. 10am–11pm. Closed on Mon­days.

Restoran Nasi Ulam Kam­pung Kraftan­gan Kam­pung Kraftan­gan, Jalan Hilir Kota, Kota Bharu.

As its name im­plies, this restau­rant is fa­mous for its nasi ulam. It’s lo­cated within the premises of the Hand­i­craft Mu­seum so you can take a leisurely tour of the mu­seum to ad­mire tra­di­tional hand­i­crafts such as batik and songket and then sit down for the quintessen­tially Malay meal of fluffy white rice and fresh greens – the clos­est thing to a salad in this part of Malaysia.

Ha­lal.

Zawanie Nasi Kukus Lot 2643F Jalan Sul­tanah Zainab Kam­pung Sireh, Kota Bharu.

The serv­ings are large, so come with an empty stom­ach to do the food jus­tice.
