So which Penang’s stall in on the list? *drumrolls*



Penang Stalls Made It To The World Street Food Top 50

Penang’s Line Clear Nasi Kandar Restaurant and Siam Road Char Koay Teow have made it to the World Street Food Top 50 for best street food.

Line Clear was chosen as the 9th best street food outlet while Siam Road Char Koay Teow was ranked 14th at the World Street Food Congress 2017 held in Manila, the Philippines, from May 31 to June 4.


Line Clear

Line Clear was described as “arguably the most famous Nasi Kandar stall in Malaysia. They occupy a side lane, not even a stall, with their selection of masala fried chicken, fish head curry, lamb, sambal prawns, eggs, spicy greens, etc, all lined up along the wall in stainless steel pans, you just devour them with rice. Turnover is very high and they are very loud and friendly, as are the customers”.

Siam Road Char Koay Teow


Siam Road Char Koay Teow is featured on our 24 hours food guide in Penang.

Siam Road Char Koay Teow received rave reviews as “the classic travelling food cart on 4 wheels. He cooks it over a … wood-fired wok and the smoky smooth appeal is the reason for the lines wherever he drags his char kway teow cart to”.
