We wished Nasi Kandar Line Clear was higher on this list, sadly it’s not. While it doesn’t live up to its hype with its less than robust curries, this is still a pretty good place to get your Nasi Kandar fix. If anything, taste is pretty decent and prices are pretty affordable especially for Kuala Lumpur’s standards. Where else you going to get a plate of Nasi Kandar for RM5.30 in 2017?!

This is the only Nasi Kandar place that serves in a Chinese coffee shop. Needless to say, Penang Nasi Kandar stall reigns supreme here. People from Puchong come here to get their Penang Nasi Kandar fix and while it’s fairly pricey, taste-wise it’s pretty darn good.
