Type of business and profile of user
Original Kayu Nasi Kandar started out with a stall at a coffee shop in SS2 Chow Yang here back in 1974 and grew to become one of the most popular “Mamak” restaurants in Klang Valley and Penang. Today, from the little stall around the corner, many such eateries have envolved into much bigger establishments with some owning chains of restaurants that carry same name. Original Kayu Nasi Kandar is one those that made it to the A-list.
Nasi Kandar had its humble origins in Penang Island, one of Malaysia’s key tourist islands up North. What does ‘Nasi Kandar’ mean? ‘Nasi’ means rice in Malay while ‘Kandar’ refers to a formidable stick that is slung across one’s shoulder to carry heavy objects securely hung on both ends of the stick. Nasi kandar was therefore coined to lend meaning to the way in which this local range of delightful Malaysian curry options was sold in the villages since time immemorial.
Over the years, Nasi Kandar has evolved into a far more exciting variety of dishes and has gained so much popularity that Nasi Kandar restaurants may today be found all over Malaysia, albeit, not all such restaurants have had their origins in penang….but as the saying goes ‘Copying is the best form of flattery’!
As OPKNK is embanking on setting up a new ‘Kayu Classic’ Nasi Kandar restaurant with more ambience and a cafe theme, on 20 Sept. 2019, they open 9th restaurant in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar. Friends, Suppliers and members of the public were invited for a complimentary food tasting lunch on that day.
