OUR STORY

At ATA’S, we aspire to bring back the lost tradition of Nasi Kandaq through our very own viewpoint and approach. The spice route and the stories behind this nostalgic cuisine are brought to an indulgent domain. Backed by historical research of the authentic recipe we embark on a DNA-ingrained holistic journey of Nasi Kandaq.

As the low-profile trendsetter that we have always been; it is time for us to yet again set a trend with our very own philosophy. Malaysians are well acquainted with the mobile (kandared) minimalist fusion-food street hawkers of Penang going back almost a century in time. Here and now is the deserving revival.
