Nasi Kandar is a real Penang speciality and takes its name from the Malay word for pole or kandar. In the old days, nasi kandar vendors would carry their baskets of rice and spicy Indian Muslim curries around town balanced across their shoulder on a long pole. Customers would simply stop them, choose their food and eat along the roadside. Today's nasi kandar restaurants offer diners a mouth-watering array of curries, vegetables, fish and meat dishes.
