There's hardly a shortage of Nasi Kandar eateries on the island and with many touting themselves as the best in the business, chances are you'll be paying double for a plate of Penang's age-old delicacy. Shariff Nasi Kandar, however is still reasonably priced and dishes out hearty portions. Regulars queue as early as 5.15pm to avoid the disappointment of facing empty platters. Complement your rice with battered chicken, Malay beef stew, curried fish and fried seafood before ladling heaps of curry over everything. The messier, the better.
