The owner of Melati Kebab Pita serves pita with beef stuffing and chicken stuffing. The owner fry the minced meat in a flat pan till it is flavorful. Onions, chopped tomatoes and strips of cucumber are added on for texture and flavor. One can smell the delicious aroma of the meat wafting all over the place. The stuffing is drizzled with chilli and tomato sauce, and mixed together before being stuffed into the pocket of the pita bread. It tastes simply delicious!

Other favourite that is cooked on the spot is the BBQ chicken wings and a handful of grilled items. The well marinated chicken wings are beautifully grilled with a hint of charcoal aroma. The chicken marinating sauce seeps deep into the meat, making every bite satisfying with the infused flavors.

It is interesting seeing the crispy deep-fried mushrooms at the bazaar. It is so easy to pop the mushrooms into the mouth. The other crispy pieces of keropok lekor made of fish paste are best eaten with its chilli sauce. These two deep-fried items are great snacks to nibble on, which leave you wanting more.

Cahaya Mutiara Nasi ayam, Hardi Madu Nasi goreng ayam and the pungent and flavourful Nasi ulam are popular rice dishes. Nasi ulam is served together with onions, fried ikan bilis, salted egg and fresh local greens and herbs. Nasi ayam comes with a salad of cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce.
