Best Nasi Kandar in PJ

Written by Updated ago

An all-time favourite at mamak eateries, Nasi Kandar consists of a meal of rice served with a variety of curries and side dishes. Originating from the Indian Muslims of Penang, nasi kandar is a Northern culinary heritage that has been passed on from generation to generation with new variations and takes on this wonderful dish. The name was derived from a bygone era when food vendors would balance a pole on their shoulders carrying huge containers of rice meals. Fortunately, these vendors have now been spared the food balancing act as we roundup some of the best Nasi Kandar in Petaling Jaya.
