On 4 January 2015, I went to Restaurant Pelita Taiping for breakfast with my Son. I sat next to the cash counter.

The Chai Leng park outlet is the first Pelita outlet.The food is good especially the rice.It some how is different from other outlets.They have also expanded their business with south Indian al carte food in an air conditioned place. Vegetarians, are taken care too with an array of Indian dishes.

During a month in Penang in June this year, I had about 8 meals at the McAlister Road Nasi Kandar. This place is always very clean and hygienic, and the meals very appetising. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking great food and service.

Tried the fried chicken and curry chicken, both tasted nice. There is air-con room available, to dine at the room, no need to queue, just go in, waiter will come to take order. Each dish cost additional RM0.20 for dining at the air-con room.
