This steel rod sculpture located at Ah Quee Street can be found on a wall of an orange restaurant. It depicts how Nasi Kandar was being sold in the old days by Indian Muslims in Penang. The word Nasi Kandar, originated in the old days of Penang when nasi (rice) sellers would balance a kandar pole on their shoulder with two huge containers of rice meals or curry dishes.
