This nasi kandar stall has been in existence for 45 years! The owner probably get interviewed so often by the press that makes him so fluent in rattling off all the details about his stall. So he kindly gave me some history lessons the other day when I was busy snapping photos of his stall.
Line Clear is actually rather hidden from the bigger restaurants along Penang Road. It is in a small, narrow lane off Penang Road.
Located across Argyll Road, just after the Chulia Street junction.
Line Clear came highly recommended by Nee Shen, a Penang blogger. I am glad I checked the nasi kandar stall out. It is one of those few traditional style nasi kandar stalls.
The taste of their curries is so unlike the mass produced new outlets. Line Clear curries have that balance of spices in their curries and do not leave your tastebuds with too much flavour of only certain spices. It tastes justttttt riggghtttt. (that’s how I would say)
Here is my plate of nasi setengah (half portion of rice) with fish roes/eggs, squids roes, beef and okra. I am certainly going back again and again to Line Clear from now on. The only problem with the place is the lack of parking. You need to park across the street along Argyll Road as there is no parking along the busy Penang Road.
Just watch out for the yellow and green signboard. Walk into the little lane and head for the stall by the wall. There is a big Maggi sign on their counter.Don’t get lured into the other nasi kandar restaurants on the main road. ‘Cos the bigger restaurants have staffs standing outside to ‘invite’ to their own place.
