The Original Nasi Kandar Part III - Rafiq Sulaiman, Penang.
The Original Nasi Kandar (Part III). I always against many people who normally enjoy nasi kandar because of it's fried chicken. The real nasi kandar is appreciated by it's curry. If we like the fried chicken, say it the fried chicken is good, don't mention it wrongly as the nasi kandar is good! After all, fried chicken is not the most important dishes to nasi kandar.
My late grandfather ate nasi kandar with beef or fish, together with telur rebus and bendi. And my father once said,"don't eat your nasi kandar with chicken, it will only destroy the great taste of nasi kandar". So, let me suggest U to another 'pure' nasi kandar stall in Penang.
This Rafiq Sulaiman stall is located at Jalan Air Itam, Penang. They occupy some space of a chinese kopitiam (Pinang Restoran). To be clearer, it is just a few shophouses away from the junction joining Lorong Kulit (Stadium) with Jalan Air Itam. When I went there, a long queue of about 15-20 customers were lining up waiting to be serve. I dont know whether it was a wrong timing by me or their nasi kandar is just too good. If U wanna try, be there as early as 7am to avoid long queue. Dont worry, you'll appreciate it! The heavenly taste is worth the wait
