Top Penang Food Finds


The endless variety of food in Penang has created for the island a reputation as a food destination - the island draws thousands of visitors on the strength of its hawker food alone! Whether you're after Nyonya, Indian, Hakka, seafood, or sweet treats, Penang is bound to have it… at really low prices besides!

There's so much to try when you're in Penang - you can try the eating shops near Teluk Bahang, the roadside hawker center near Mount Erskine, or the night hawker center on Gurney Drive.

What follows is a short, and admittedly personal, list of favorite foods out of the myriad choices that Penang has to offer - selected by noted Penangite food blogger Lingzie. You're warmly invited to come to Penang, pick and choose… and make a list of your own!
