Pengkalan Kubor Duty Free Zone

Apart from clothing, a wide range of foods are available at Pengkalan Kubor Duty Free Zone. We dropped by this stall to buy some cashew nuts and tamarinds.

Cashew Nuts

The price of the cashew nuts was not expensive. I can't remember how much per kilogram. We finished the cashew nuts when we were stopping at Kuala Trengganu.


These tamarinds are imported from Thailand and quite tasty. You have to beware so that you not swallow any worms in the tamarinds.

Layer Cake

Besides cashew nuts and tamarinds, this stall also sells layer cakes. These colorful layer cakes are very beautiful.


I truly like Pistachios. Not certain these pistachios are imported from Thailand or other countries.

Pickled Foods

Pickled foods are also sold at Pengkalan Kubor Duty Free Zone. If are fond of pickled foods, you can buy until satisfied.


Dodol is also can be bought at Pengkalan Kubor Duty Free Zone. There are various colors of Kelantan dodol but Malacca dodol only with dark brown color.
