In a popular Penang spot called Nasi Kandar Sulaiman, this Kelantanese man now holds the title for paying the most ever for Nasi Kandar – a whopping RM78! And guess what? His plate was loaded with good food.

Here's the breakdown: 7 squids (RM49), 2 prawns (RM14), chicken (RM5.50), squid egg (RM7), Lady’s finger (RM1), rice (RM1.50).

The man travelled all the way from Kelantan to Penang just to get the real deal Nasi Kandar experience. Little did he know, he was about to break the record set just two weeks ago at RM69. 

And guess what? As of January 14th, he's still the record holder at RM78.

Nasi Kandar Sulaiman spilled the beans that the RM69 record was held by a person from Johor, and the third-highest record, at RM61, was a Penang local.

RM78. Pecah rekod📢. Orang Kelantan mai pecah rekod. New all time biggest record. Tak sangka akan ada orang mai buat...
