Nasi kandar is one of Penang’s famous food. It is an Indian-Muslim food, made up of white rice served with a variety of curry dishes. There are many nasi kandar shops all over Penang.
Recently, I had nasi kandar at Restoran Ya Kareem in Gelugor, Penang. This nasi kandar shop is located along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, right opposite Klinik Aman Gelugor (a Qualitas clinic), and near Minden Heights. I went there without much expectation, but was pleasantly surprised, as the nasi kandar here turned out to be pretty good. I ordered my nasi kandar with fried chicken, beef rendang, and some lady’s finger (okra).
In addition to nasi kandar, Restoran Ya Kareem also serves murtabak (or murtabah). Will try the murtabak the next time I visit the restaurant.
Here is the location of Restoran Ya Kareem:
