Hameediyah Nasi Kandar, Campbell Street @ Penang

Add: 164A Campbell Street, Penang
Tel: +604 261 1095
Opening hours: 10am - 10pm (Sat-Thurs, closed on Fridays)

Celebrating its 101st ... yes, count that, a year over ONE CENTURY, anniversary is this very famous and institutional Southern Indian cuisine restaurant. It serves C's fave nasi kandar in town, and who am I to argue with Penang Lang :-)

Famous dishes here, according to research, includes Chicken Kapitan/Rose, Beef Rendang, Chicken Briyani, Mutton Kurma and Murtabak.

We ate on the 1st floor, which is air-conditioned, and relatively relaxed compared to the hustle and bustle of downstairs! These dishes were all good ...

Especially enjoyed the ayam goreng / fried chicken. Slurp!!

The Rojak Pasembur takes some getting used to, but I enjoyed it. The korma was good, as was the excellent nasi briyani.
