For most Malaysians who visit Penang, nasi kandar is always the first thing we want to feast on the moment we step foot into the Northern state. A heap of rice drenched in curry, with fried chicken and fresh lady’s fingers— what’s not to love about the dish?
Unfortunately, getting to Penang isn’t an easy task. Residents of Kuala Lumpur can deem themselves lucky this time, as Sunway Putra Mall will be hosting Nasi Kandaq Fest 2023!
For 1 weekend (23 Sep to 24 Sep 2023), connoisseurs finally have the chance to decide on their favourite nasi kandar restaurant of all time. Whether you just want a hefty plate of delicious food, or if you want to start an Excel sheet ranking all the popular nasi kandar shops, this festival is especially dedicated to lovers of the cuisine.
This event will take place at the mall’s Main Driveway and Main Concourse on the ground floor from 10am to 10pm.
Nasi Kandaq Fest 2023 will feature 10 legendary nasi kandar restaurants. They’re referred to as the “Lejens“, and the list of vendors (in alphabetical order) is as follows:
Nasi Kandar Bawah Pokok
Nasi Kandar LC (Line Clear) Kampung Baru
Nasi Kandaq Talam Johor Bahru
Pelita Nasi Kandar Taman Chai Leng
Restoran Kudu bin Abdul
Restoran Liga Maju Nasi Dalca Ayam
Sadam Nasi Kandar
Sithique Nasi Kandar
It’s easy to see why these restaurants were chosen to be Malaysia’s legends. The 1st on the list, Hameediyah Restaurant, is the country’s oldest nasi kandar place— they first began operations all the way back in 1907. Even Restoran Kudu bin Abdul is currently being run by the family’s 3rd generation.
If you’re a nasi kandar lover, you have to drop by this festival to try out new spots, or to simply get your cravings satisfied!
