Named after nasi kandar, originally a Penang favourite of steamed rice served with a selection of dishes, but now mostly associated with Malaysian Indian Muslims (Mamaks).
Other popular offerings include a wide selection of South Indian breads, ketam masala (stewed crab with curry sauce), burung puyuh (fried quail) and ayam kampung goreng (crispy fried chicken).
If you're finding mall eating a bit too clinical, this is a good place to head to for local food at fair prices. To avoid the worst of the lunchtime crowds, go before noon, or after 14:00.
You'll find Nasi Kandar Pelita's KLCC branch on Jalan Ampang, a five to ten minute walk tot the east of the Petronas Towers. It's also very close of KLCC LRT on the Kelana Jaya line.
It also has a smaller branch in Bangsar at 2 Jalan Telawai 5, T: (03) 2282 5532.
