Nasi Kandar Line Clear - Penang (Malaysia)


When its Penang, it must be nasi kandar. For me, a trip to Penang is incomplete without a satisfying meal of nasi kandar  - rice with spicy oozy curries and veggies. That was the precise reason why the moment I arrived at Penang airport, I asked my cousin who is a Penangite where nasi kandar should try. Line Clear was highly spoken and I said "let's go"

Parking across Chulia Street and upon walking into the lane, we stood in the long queue and ordered. The staff scooping the dishes over the plate of rice may be busy but they carefully listen to the customers. I thought it will appropriate to speak in Bahasa Malaysia but hei, caught by surprise, they sure speak English well. After ordering, we carried the plates and sat at the long wooden bench. Sweaty and hot it was on this day while tucking into the meal but well, sweating and eating is the call here.
I had nasi beriyani with curried quail, stir fried bean sprouts and green chilli sambal. My other half didn't miss out on his favourite curried lamb and stir fried long beans.The cousin tucked into the curried fish, stir fried long beans and green chilli sambal as well. A plate of papadam and drinks were also called for.  



Now, the moment of truth. Food - finger licking delicious as the curries were lip smacking. Precise spicy flavours, cooked in a typical authentic Malay-Indian style with spices, heaps of curry powder and chillies. Truly loveable, I vouch its one of the best I've tasted so far. Nasi kandar Line Clear reasonably priced and service quite efficient. But eating at the bench alongside with unknown people while perspiring under the blistering sun wasn't all that comfortable. Also, you have to close your eyes to hygiene factors and after eating, better to quickly leave because others will be waiting for a place to sit. As for parking, best of luck trying to find a spot across the road and anywhere nearby.

  6. This is so not fair! It's been years since I've had nasi kandar! I'm pretty sure I've been to this place - my dad's Malaysian and lived in Penang, sadly, he passed away in Dec last year.
    Just having everything you might want in front of you, oh I miss it!
