Street food in Pantai Kok can be found along its coastline and major roads, which are sold at humble-looking stalls and family-owned eateries. Priced at RM2 upwards, visitors can enjoy a variety of authentic and cheap Malay dishes such as nasi lemak, fried noodles and nasi ayam (chicken rice), pisang goreng (fried bananas), and keropok lekor (fish crackers). If you’re buying from a food stall, these foods are conveniently packed in plastic bags and Styrofoam containers but for a more environmental-friendly of enjoying them, we highly recommend stopping at a local restaurant instead.
