Nasi Kandar Beratur...memang beratur!

Been here? Actually hubby has mentioned this place to me a few years back. We've passed by but due to the time the shop open, we've never bothered. Finally, yes finally, we are here and in 2 weeks, I visited this place twice. Welcome to Kedai Nasi Kandar Beratur. You might wonder why the name Beratur (to queue) and that will be until you are actually at the place. The first night hubby and me came by it was was around 9:30pm so......the two of us 'ber-duduk' (sat) and not 'beratur' (queue). As 10:00pm neared, you can see cars stopping by and people started to trickle in and the queue started. This shop actually operates in two sessions; morning and evening. It is this 10:00 pm one that is popular.
Ayam Ros. This is a must try. It is chicken in curry and found in almost all nasi kandar places. It is how this curry is prepared that makes the taste extraordinary. It isn't so darn spicy that it explodes all your taste buds.
Terung masak curry
Sotong. BB had this and he couldn't stop mumbling how he is going to rave to his friends about this sotong. I took a little of the curry and oh my......it was awesome. Something unlike the normal sotong curry. I thought it had a little salted fish taste in it and that makes it different.
On first bite I thought the fried chicken was a bit dry. Then after a few more bites I realised that the chicken is fresh and just fried. It doesn't have oil dripping from the meat unlike many other stalls. Good to order this if you do not like spicy chicken.
The mutton kurma is another dish you can't leave out of your order unless of course, you do not like/eat mutton. The mutton is so tender it just flakes off the bones or like hubby's way of describing it......it melts in the mouth. I said meat doesn't melt in the mouth. He said well, it is my way of saying it is soooo tender and juicy. We ordered their kacang bendi (ladies fingers) and fried cabbage too. They are just as good. In fact every dish that hubby ordered is wonderfully sedap (delicious). Of course, there are many more like the beef rendang, fish curry, etc, etc. You got to try it to believe and agree with what I've written here. This is one nasi kandar kedai that have many recommendations including my family's. This 'kedai' is situated next to Mesjid Kapitan Keling, Pitt Street, PENANG. Drool and Enjoy!. :o)
** Be early to avoid the long queue.
