Nasi Kandar is synonymous with Penang as this is where this famous meal originates from. The interesting part about Nasi Kandar is that it is not a stand alone dish, but rather a whole sub-set of the Indian-Muslim cuisine in Malaysia.

The Nasi Kandar is basically rice served with a host of curries, meat vegetables and other side dishes. What sets a plate of the tantalizing Nasi Kandar apart from other rice dishes is the curries. Yes, curries, lots and lots of curries. Here’s is tip for the untrained when ordering Nasi Kandar ask for ‘kari campur’, which means a combination of the various curries on their menu. You will experience an explosion of taste unlike any curry you have enjoyed before.

The curries served are thicken, fish, prawn, squid and beef, with the occasional crab and fish roe, as well as the popular non-spiry lamb kurma. Prices range from RM5.00 to above RM10.00 per plate depending on your order of the dishes. Since it is often sold in restaurants own by Muslims, Nasi Kandar is a halal dish.
