Guess what can cause at least 20 person to queue for at least 20 minutes by the road side?
There are no proper place for the tables and chairs. Only the five foot way.
That’s the only way to savour Nasi Kandar Sharif in Glugor Penang. To get there, turn in from the traffic lights in Glugor, go to the backlane and come out the other side because the road is a one-way street. Just outside 7-eleven (can be seen from the photo above). Where is Glugor? It is right after USM but before Green Lane.
I think it is Bart who told me about this place (in a comment in my blog sometime back). Well, I must say that this place is certainly famous because throughout the time I ate there, the queue always have at least 20 persons waiting patiently for their turn.
I had prawns, squids, beef and okra and the price is only about RM5+ which is considered cheap if we compare with those mass production nasi kandar stalls. The beef is really delicious and tender. The curries are all cooked the traditional way and taste like how nasi kandar should.
My hubby had the tomato rice with fried chicken, vegetables and soya bean cake. Also very kick.
So, if you have patience to queue up, head over to Shariff Nasi Kandar. It is just a small push cart stall amongst a sad looking row of hawkers. Remember your mathematics. If there are 20 persons queueing, they may be buying an average of 2 plates/packets of rice. So, let’s say the stall owner takes 30 seconds from scooping to packing, that means you have to wait for at least 20 minutes to get your turn. But if the customers are fickled minded and takes another 30 seconds to decide what to choose, then you will probably faint in the queue! LOL!
