Hameediyah Nasi Kandar @ Kota Damansara

After nearly 110 years in George Town, Penang's Hameediyah has branched out to Selangor, finding a 21st-century foothold on franchise fame in Kota Damansara. The pioneering purveyors of nasi kandar are off to a brisk start, with no lack of a lunchtime crowd. Everyone knows the drill - line up & take your pick of freshly steamed white rice or biryani (most customers seem to prefer the latter), with the familiar suspects of meat, seafood, vegetables & curries to complete one hearty ensemble.

Dal-drenched biryani with fried chicken & fish roe clocks in at RM13 - not a bad bargain for a plateful of comforting flavours. Some signatures may require a wait for preparation - we're looking at you, kambing mysore, ayam kampung bawang & murtabak daging - while several Penang highlights like kari itik seem absent. Patience is a prerequisite for joining the queue.

  1. For the "oldest nasi kandar" it sure has a nice modern feel to it.

    1. Contact.ewew: heh, i think both probably have their merits - i'd have liked to sample a wider range of lauk at hameediyah, but their ready stocks seemed to be running low. thankfully i got the last piece of fish roe! :D
