Kuala Lumpur - Nasi Kandar Pelita

On our previous visit to KL, Nasi Kandar Pelita was one of our favorite places. Since our hotel was within easy walking distance, we visited again twice this time.

Pelita has multiple stations, but the most important one is the Nasi Kandar station. Here you order a plate of rice and pick what toppings you would like.

It was late on our arrival day in KL and we didn't want to overeat, so we shared a plate with a couple of pieces of lamb rendang. We also got it "banjir" style - with a little bit of gravy added from each of the dishes.

Most other dishes are ordered from your table. We ordered a naan bread - which they make in the tandoor oven in the back.

On our second visit, we also were not super hungry, so we decided to go with a couple of dosas.

We got one plain dosa, and one onion dosa. The plain was perfect - super thin and crispy. The onion dosa didn't have much noticable onioniness going on, and it was folded over and thicker - more like an uttapam. We much prefered the plain one.

Both dosas came with a very nice dahl, and what I think was a slightly cococut-flavored raita. We also couldn't resist getting a chunk of lamb from the nasi kandar counter.

Every time we've visited Nasi Kandar Pelita it has been pleasantly busy, but not super packed. It remains a favorite place of ours.
