Beside tasting fruits, visitors can sample or buy the local ‘kuih’ as snacks.
The signature cake in Kuching is the colored layer-cake. The process of making layer-cake is very tedious. Some bakers have even transform this cake into an art form.
Most of the pastries and snacks are either sweet or salty in taste.
They are often wrapped in palm leaves or coconet leaves.
Some have sticky rice inside, and some even fermented to produce alcohol within.
