Kayu Nasi Kandar - (Penang Road) Penang

We were back again in Penang (Shangri La Rasa Sayang & Chi Spa) after almost a year for another family occasion. This time an evening flight and by the time we arrived at about 9pm, I was hungry as a cow. There was no time to decide, neither pick and choose where to eat/makan. Straight away to the nearest - Kayu Nasi Kandar, we have been to many a times especially Kayu Taipan

Known for their nasi kandar, Kayu also offer various types of other food as well. Between those, we opted for sup kambing, sup ayam, nan bread with tandoor chicken and of course nothing like washing down with teh tarik.

Both the sups were flavoured up in a similar style, garnished with coriander leaves and paired with crusty bread. Lovely loveable aromatic soup and tender to its core kambing and chicken until every bit polished off. In fact for small eaters like us, quite filling and always been our favorite compared to the nasi kandar. 
The cousin who had naan with dhal curry and tandoor chicken was happy as well. He liked the soft fluffy bread, the thick delicious curry and the spicily grilled chicken. 
Considered a reasonably priced dinner though there's a little hike in the price

  11. Nava, that is a cool review. First thing caught my eyes was teh tarik, being a tea/coffee lover myself - this is a very inviting cuppa, looks effortlessly tasty.
    And the soup, Oh my! I have heard a lot about the chicken and mutton soups. My granny used to talk in specific about the "mutton leg soup" all the time, they taste so good because of the meat releasing its fat content, i guess. I have no expertise in cooking meat, but remove the meat and add some veggies, you definitely won't get the killer taste :)
    And the dal in the meal, looks just like home made one with no extra garnish, neat.

  12. Hi nava.... maybe u should try the soup kambing at nasi kandar pelita chai leng park perai for comparison...then you will know which is better....penangite!!!
