Pelita Nasi Kandar - The best Malaysian cuisine in Chennai


Tagged as: Chennai Restaurant Reviews Posted By Bala Murugan

Pelita, a Malaysian cuisine restaurant located at one of the busiest place of Chennai city called Pondy Bazaar. If you happen to visit Pondy Bazaar then it’s one of the best places to try if you are bored out of regular Indian dishes. There is variety of Malaysian dishes on their menu which you can give it a try.

The dishes in Nasi Kandar will attract you if you mostly prefer rice for your meal. Nasi is rice in Malay, and Pelita offers multiple combinations of Nasi Kandar with different side dishes like Fish, Squid, Chicken and Mutton. My personal favorite is Nasi Kandar with Squid. There are some good choices on starters in Chicken, Kadai, Squid, Fish cooked in Malaysian style on their menu.

Malaysian noodles and fried rice are another good choice if you want to try a different dish. Mee Gorang Ayam (Chicken Noodles) and Nasi Goreng Ayam(Chicken Fried rice) are good and are my personal favorites.

For Roti lovers, try out the stuffed Roti’s under the menu item Pelita Specialty. Murtabak Ayam/ Chicken Murtabak is good choice for chicken lovers, it’s a chicken stuffed Parotta. Try Banana Parotta if you are bored of regular Roti’s.

Apart from these Malaysian dishes, Pelita also offers a variety of other dishes like North Indian, South Indian and Chinese varieties.

On the flip side, you can feel a bad odor throughout the restaurant since they have open kitchen and sometimes it gives a bad experience. They can have better table and chairs as the current setup is too basic for the place it is located with almost no ambience.  Keeping these little things apart and if you are a more food lover then you will definitely enjoy the food. Visit this place for a difference and you will not get disappointed!
