Murtabak diraja or royal murtabak (martabak) is roti canai-like (pancake) filled with eggs and savoury minced chicken or beef, about 3 times thicker than the normal murtabak.
The place I went to looked like a normal house if not for the streams of visitors and delicious smell wafting from the kitchen. Apparently, they also sold a variety of Kelantanese traditional cakes (kuih) and people phone in to order in advance.
At first, I had no idea what people were buying. Some looked like sliced mangoes but they were piping hot! So we asked a kind guy behind the counter and he told us a list of traditional cakes, none of which I was familiar with (or even catch the name).
Based on Google and from what I can remember about the cakes' shapes, I'm guessing these cakes:
... and God know what else. Really, I've never even seen some of them before. But they are popular with the locals. There was a queue and some people simply went into the kitchen to collect their order.

Since I didn't catch any of the names given by the nice seller, I decided to just buy murtabak as planned.
To be honest, I am not a fan of murtabak since most people just packed them with onions. I like the one from Khalifah Restaurant near my place and this Serimas Royal Murtabak. I even like their pickled onion (I mean the liquid part. I don't eat the onion) and I'm a fussy eater!
Heat in microwave oven or pan for 8 minutes at 100ºC
Good for 4 portions

Telephone them in advance to book if you fancy the traditional cakes. Many customers had to leave without their akok cakes; I'm guessing that akok is another specialty of Hajah Nik Faizah :)
