Line Clear Nasi Kandar at Kampung Baru: Snapshot
From Penang, Line Clear has long been one of the northern island’s most popular haunts for nasi kandar, its heritage reaching back to before World War II. Its legacy now extends to KL with a new branch in Kampung Baru – an instant hit, with scores of patrons patiently queuing for half an hour during peak periods.
We reached the end of the efficiently manned line & had a plate of steamed white rice heaped with fish roe (irreproachable), squid roe (soft but mercifully not mushy), fried chicken (the breast meat was relatively bland) & a large prawn (fresh, firm & fleshy), flooded with a jumble of spicy-savoury gravies for RM29.
The curries could be more robust, but this feels familiar enough to merit honourable comparisons to nasi kandar on a Penang alley.
