Nasi Kandar Pelita was born out of passion, dream and leap of faith in June 1995 by three good friends. The late Mr Kirudu Mohamed Bin Kuppaikanni, Mr Kaliq Jamal and Mr Ramesh embarked their journey in nasi kandar business with a clear common vision – to serve authentic nasi kandar food for the locals. Their first stall concept nasi kandar was at a corner shop at Chai Leng Park, Seberang Jaya, Penang.
The mastermind and founders of the most popular Nasi Kandar Pelita, Mr Kirudu Mohamed and Mr Kaliq Jamal – a borne spice lover, just knew the right blend of the spices to make a dish literally finger-licking good!
A humble start for Mr Kirudu Mohamed from a typical nasi kandar stall way back in 1972 at Chowrasta Market and later moved to Kinta Lane, Penang has flourished to be a renowned household brand name in Malaysia today.
