Nasi Kandar Yong Suan , Ipoh
Clock Pointed at 11p.m and getting out from my kampung straight heading to Kedai Kopi Yong Suan for lunch with my little brother , I heard this nasi "Ganja " quite a while ago and finally I get to eat it .
The city’s famous nasi kandar stall at the Yong Suan Coffeeshop in Jalan Yang Kalsom , Introducing the famous and Original Nasi Kandar Ayam Merah or better known as Nasi Ganja by locals .
This little Indian Muslim stall located inside Kedai Kopi Yong Suan and been in business since 1956 , 55 years of nice foods , It is also known as Nasi Vanggey as the stall owners used to welcome their customers in by shouting out loud “vanggey! vanggey! vanggey!” means "come in , welcome" , long queues are is common at here during peak hours (Lunch time).
Displayed at the stall are huge variety of curries, fried dishes and vegetables . Pick what I wanted and feast on it while the other staff will write the bill and put on the table . The very basic items you get are some sliced cucumbers and a spoon of special chillie paste .
The coffee shop is packed with regular and new customer like me during peak hours and getting a place is close to impossible but mostly will share tables and enjoy together . But as they said, it’s worth to wait for something that’s tastes good . it exhibited the old rustic charm of olden days with its unintentional decors, tiled floors and walls .
I choice nasi kandar ayam merah and my lil brother get nasi kandar mutton , they gave alot of mutton and size in large cube size . A plate like above will cost around RM6 , The rice was flood with curries comes along the aroma and flavour while the special curry paste gave the extra aroma to the delicious meal .
