Sithique Nasi Kandar

Kedai Makanan Sithique Nasi Kandar Pulau Pinang
Jalan Dang Wangi (within the old Odeon theatre)

From the photo above, you can see that it came up to a very reasonable RM21.60, plus the portions of chicken we got were also very generous. Everyday food for the everyday person? Heck yeah!

Dining here during weekdays can be tricky so its best to try avoiding the crush hours of between 12:00PM to 2:00PM because they do rip-roaring business during these times. You’ll have more luck finding an empty table during the weekends.

Forced Hiatus!
