With The Lonely Planet listing Penang as the #1 destination for foodies back in 2014, you know that the food on our little tropical island must be special.
“Malaysian hawker food has spread worldwide via food trucks and pop-ups but nothing compares to hitting Penang. Its food reflects the intermingling of the many cultures that arrived after it was set up as a trading port in 1786, from Malays to Indians, Acehenese to Chinese, Burmese to Thais. State capital Georgetown is its culinary epicentre.”
– Robin Barton, Lonely Planet
