Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah

April 11, 2011

Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah is a central wet market that is located in the heart of Islamic City of Kota Bharu. As a wet market, as normal, it sell fresh fish likes one-finlet scad, round herring, long-tail shad, Spanish mackerel, tunny fish, pomfret, Indian mackerel, sea-bream and others.

There are also freshwater fish such as striped snakehead, catfish, eel and others. Also we can buy from here chicken meats, beef, eggs and all sort of vegetables such as cabbages, long bean, chilli, aubergine, cauliflower, gourd, okra, lemon grass, lettuce and many other types of vegetables.

This market also sells fruits which are normally locals such as ciku, guava, jackfruit, many types of mangoes, binjai, cempedak, orange, durian, mangosteen, watermelon, hog plum, langsat, papaya, pineapples, duku, banana, starfruit and many more. We also can get some of foreign fruits likes datepalms, grapes, lychee, mata kuching, apples, mandarin oranges(during Chinese New Year festival).

Also this market sells local foods likes “kuih-muih”(some sort of cake but not so)dodol, baulu, kuih bangkit, curry puff, tapai, seri muka, onde-onde, kuih lapis, tepung talam. The name of this “kuih-muih” cannot be translated at all into English due to its gap between west and east regarding this very big. This market also have eateries for buying drinks and eating foods especially Kelantan food.

For anyone who cannot tolerate the sweetness in drinks better reminding the seller before making drinks likes hot tea with milk, iced tea with milk to lessen the quantity of the sugar. Other than that this market also sells local foodstuff which are very hard to be found outside Kelantan likes Malay kuih of Kelantanese dodol, lebung buaya. There is a type of kuih made from glutinuos rice(the glutinuous rice normally green in colour)which is at the outside about two inches long, covered with grated coconut, and the inside is cooked ripe banana.
