Nasi Kandar Kampung Melayu; Still the Best Nasi Kandar in Penang

First of all, I would like to clarify one thing, I am not Nasi Kandar Kampung Melayu shareholder.
Hahaha, somebody suspected because my wife is originally from Kampung Melayu.
My review was purely based on the taste.
Actually this is my 2nd review, see my 1st review here,but this time I went to their branch which serves dinner.
It is located in Food Court, Jalan Thein Teik. (Blue Apartment)
The main branch located in Flats Kampung Melayu, close after lunch time.
Like I said before, I have tried all nasi kandar in Penang, whether restaurants or foodstalls.
But for 24 years of eating nasi kandar, I still prefer this one.

Ayer Itam view from Kek Lok Si Temple.

Not many people lining up at dinner time. If it is lunch time, you will see longer line and bigger crowd.

No words can describe.. Deliciousness make me speechless. Imagine the mild spiced 'flooded' gravy penetrating your ever wanting mouth. Tenderness of the squid,  simply the best!!

Don't worry to put more gravy, it is not too spicy. Make sure you have them mix all around. The secret of making your nasi kandar more delicious is to mix the correct gravy with your main meat/seafood. Different type of meat/seafood with different set of gravy. Adding a little bit by a little bit of your curry can only be mix by the expert hand of the man in-charged. Just trust the man, okay!

Those who are not familiar with the location, can refer to the above map or you can always google on your own.

I have heard so many opinions by bloggers of the so call mainstream big shot Nasi Kandar Restaurants, where they claim the best in Penang. Wait until you try this one. Kampung Melayu Nasi Kandar is not big, they only have two branches. They are not big chain restaurant, but their taste and delicousness has beat the rest of the bigger players. Don't just buy my words, go try it yourself.
