Known as staple food to some Penang islanders, Nasi Kandar is truly a legacy of Penang cuisine! Made popular by the Indian Muslim community, the dishes of Nasi Kandar features the taste of richness in Asian spices, herbs and aromatic curries.
One of earliest players of Nasi Kandar restaurants in the south-eastern tip of Penang island is Kayu. Perhaps it was the first that provided Penangites an air-conditional room to savor the mouth watering curry dishes.
Located a stone throw from Vistana Hotel in Bukit Jambul, Kayu Nasi Kandar operates 24 hours. It had been ages since my last visit. Switch of tastebud, being away from home, then engaged with little one are the excuses. And recently, we revisit Kayu Nasi Kandar with our little sweetheart for breakfast.
Most Nasi Kandar restaurants are clean, tidy and provides great service compares to typical Chinese kopitiams. Serving round the clock with dishes differentiation and variation by meals timing is indeed a great feature. These are the reasons why we always go back. Perhaps it also offers the taste of Penang that always lingers in our mind and made who we are today!
The following was breakfast for two. You may be surprised to see how glutton we were!
Roti Kaya - a variation of roti canai. Kaya or coconut milk and egg jam is spreaded in between the dough before pan fried.
Poori - Deep fried wheat dough. Served with lentil/dhall curries and vegetables that are made of onion, cabbage and potato plus spices and herbs.
