Penang is a food-lover’s dream – cultures from all over the world mixed and mingled in the melting pot of the Straits of Malacca, leaving their mark on the architecture, place names, and, most importantly, the cuisine of Penang.
Georgetown is the UNESCO Heritage listed Old Town, and Chulia Street is the main heritage listed street. Surrounding streets are also carefully maintained and curated, with historic shophouses restored and repurposed. These areas include Chinatown, Little India, the backpacker district, and many restaurants with local Malaysian cuisine.
In an alley running off the Chulia Street carpark, we found one of the most famous, longest-established local Malaysian restaurants. Come with us as the scene unfolds:
What can you get to eat at Line Clear?
It’s open 24 hours every day (with the occasional rare exception for special holidays), and in the mornings you can get roti and murtabak. Apart from the expected and traditional roti cannai, plain roti, and roti with egg or cheese, Line Clear offers a dazzlng array of roti variations, including something we had never seen before: the Milo roti!
