Pelita Nasi Kandar in Sungai Dua is simply one of the best restaurant serving local food. It is mostly busy at weekend nights due to livestreaming of English Premier League football. The price of the food is very affordable to all backgrounds of people. Really recommend it to anyone visiting or living in Penang.
