I was briefly based in this cinema when I first started to work for Cathay Organization as a management trainee in the early 70's. I stayed at Lim Lean Teng Mansion in Farquar Street and on the way to work I usually stop at the corner coffee shop on Argyll Road for breakfast. My favorite was Kuay Teow Tung and Char Kuay Teow. The golden arches of McDonalds were unheard of in Penang at that time. Odeon was screening Chinese movies and the late Bruce Lee was the mega star that dominated the movie business during those days.

Hi Ken,
Somewhere on the right of this pic. is a nasi kandar stall which is situated between the shops. It is called 'Line Clear'. For those whose tastebuds are still tender, this place might prove to be a bit spicy. For the regulars, they normally ask for a mixture of their curries and they like lots of it. Just say 'Banjir' and they know what to do.
Regards, Joe

Situated right next door to "Line Clear" is "Restoran Yasmeen..."


In my humble opinion, Yasmeen serves the nicest Tandori set in all of Georgetown. They normally fire up the Tandor oven around 4pm, so you can dine an hour or so later, you are guaranteed a mouth-watering treat.


Best wishes


Paul

Thanks Joe and Paul, for the info on Line Clear and Yasmeen. I really dig good tandoori chicken and that is something that is hard to find in the U.S. Even the finer restaurants in Chicago's bustling Indian town serve only mediocre tandoori dishes. The meat is usually not well-seasoned and it can taste surprisingly bland sometimes. I must remember these two restaurants and zero in on them when I visit Penang in future.

Hi Ken,
You can be sure to get good food at both these places. Tandoori dishes at Yasmeen and at Line Clear, you can be assured of very spicy curry or ABC which some locals mean it as " A*** Burning Curry " (Forgive the punt) LOL

This Nasi Kandar Line Clear is so popular that now we have another Nasi Kandar Line Clear in Bukit Rahman Putra, Sungai Buloh, Selongar. It is located just next to An Loke (or Loke An?) Nursery (for plants).


Personally I prefer Nasi Kandar from Yasmeen. As for Murtabak, Hameediyah serves the best Murtabak. Yummy Yummy!!
