Malaysia 2014: A food haven that is Penang

One of the most common and enjoyable thing to do when in Penang is to eat, eat and eat. Food is readily available every corner and you get to have thousands of choices.


04. coffee shopAfter we check in at our hotel ( Apollo Inn ) we hurriedly went out to try our first official Penang food, and since were quite hungry already, we picked the first food shop that we found near our hotel. When we exited our hotel, to our right at the corner of Lebuh Kimberley and Lebuh Cintra you will find this “coffee shop” with lots of people almost all day long.. Just to remind you, most of the food shops in Penang are kinda run down, so if you are a picky eater it will be a challenge for you.


01. Loh MeeLoh Mee / 5.00 MYR – I have always love Loh Mee, this particular one I love the sauce, not to salty and the chilli sauce was perfect, surprisingly it has a similar taste with another Filipino dish similarly named Lomi.


02. Kway TiaoFried Kway Tiao / 7.20 MYR – This one is not bad either, I like its sweetness and it is not to oily.


03. Fried OysterFried Oyster / 8.00 MYR – I was never a fried oyster fan (particularly oyster itself) so I ended up finishing the the rest of the food except the oyster πŸ˜‰


07. Chix Rice StoreAnother popular roasted duck/chicken rice restaurant in the area is Sin Nam Huat.


05. Char Siew Roasted ChixChar Siew + Roasted Chinken with rice for two person costs 12.20 MYR

06. SoupIt comes with a “special” soup, the taste is not bad just try not to dig whats inside πŸ˜‰


Most of the time, the eating places are crowded so the best way is to buy take outs and eat it at your hotel.

08. Pie TeePie Tee – some veggies and minced meat inside a crunchy wafer cone.
