Authentic Penang Hokkien Mee

  1. In Pulau Tikus, just beside AIWA service station, in the morning where there should be good Hokkien Mee. Restaurant at the junction of MacAlister Road and New Lane. Should be Hokkien Mee stalls there in the evenings.
  2. Finally, there is a stall where it only open at night, diagonally opposite Shangri-la hotel where you could find it in a small alley. That hokkien mee is nice too.


Bak Kut Teh
  1. Too many to mention, especially along Gurney Drive in the mornings.
  2. Bah Kut Teh, this one is at Bayan Baru area. On your way up to Bayan Baru, just before the turning into Mawar Apartments, on the left hand side. It is the one at the corner. Just before the jejantas that has INVENTEC sign.


Baked Salted Chicken
  1. Kimberley Street, about 100 metres from the Penang Road junction. Look out for this shop house selling baked salted kampong chicken, Ipoh style. The whole chicken is not too big just right for two persons. Try also the Guangzhou outlet along Burmah Road.


Char Koay Teow
  1. The "famous" Two Sisters' Char Koay Teow stall in MacAlister Road. The stall beside Seven Day Adventist Church. The best I had is in Tanjung Bungah bus station where it is at the jungtion towards Taman Chee Seng. Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow is too expensive.


Indian Fried Mee
  1. You should try the stall in Bangkok Lane, and another one opposite Pulau Tikus Police Station. Another one is in Gurney Drive near the JAWS curry fish head restaurant.


Laksa Asam/Lemak
  1. Balik Pulau where there are several good asam laksa stalls. In Pulau Tikus, just opposite the police station, in the afternoon there should be good asam and lemak laksa.


Roti Canai
  1. Roti canai should be soft and tender, and served with either fish, chicken or dhal curry but for the children it is served with sugar instead of curry. The roti canai stall in pulau tikus besides the police station is good, another one in teluk bahang where it is opposite Mutiara Hotel. Lorong Susu's Roti Canai is also one of the best.


Yong Tau Foo
  1. The best Yong Tau Foo is still served at the Padang Brown hawker centre in the afternoons. There is another one in Paya Terubong in Desa Permata where its called "Ampang Yong Tau Foo".


Chicken Rice
  1. The Chicken rice that is directly opposite Fatty Loh's is nice, the one which situated in Fettes Park or opposite Hot Wok restaurant.


Seafood
  1. In George Town, Oriental Restaurant in MacAlister Road, opposite the Wisma Central. In Teluk Bahang, "End of the World" Restaurant. In Gurney Drive "New Zealand" restaurant is one of my choice too.


Satay
  1. The best satay that I ever had, located in Tanjung Tokong near Penang Chinese Swimming Club. The coffee stall is call (I Think) Restorant Simpang Tiga.


Bubur Caca
  1. Padang Brown, the bubur cacar is very nice.


Cendol
  1. Penangites swear by the two famous Cendol stalls in a side lane off Penang Road, located between Kimberley Street and Prangin Road.


Ice Kacang
  1. Try the stall in the middle of Stewart Lane, but the place is closed on Tuesdays. The ice kacang is served with big red beans.


Nasi Kandar
  1. The stall located few doors away from Sam's Batek House and Penang Road there is an alley where the stall have been there over 40 years, food is good.
  2. Newly open, along Macalister Road beside "Safety Lighting" the stall is very clean and lots of variety.


Poh Piah
  1. Lorong Selamat sells good popiah, for very good poh piah try Padang Brown.
