Eat Your Heart Out: Nasi Kandar

So named for the pole basket (Kandar) once used by vendors to balance the dish upon their shoulders, Nasi Kandar is a uniquely Malay curry whose rich flavors came to life in the 19th Century.


First popularized on the streets of Penang by Indian Muslim immigrants, the simple dish – just rice, meat or seafood, and a mouthwatering sauce – has become the gold standard in a country whose cuisine is characterized by its diversity. Typically eaten at breakfast, there is no better way to kick off your time in Malaysia than with a hearty bowl of this fan-favorite curry.
