Beehooi wantan mee is special. It’s located at Pulau Tikus opposite the church
Best Koey Chiap – Bee Hooi Coffee Shop, afternoon.

Best Chinese Pasembor – Padang Brown, around 2pm-5pm
This one, is really good! Erm..everything is of course good, sorry my vocabs are running out. If it’s no good, there wont be like plenty lining up like it’s free right ?? Abit spicy but you can control the level of spicyness if you tell the boss ” Eh, dont wan too spicy ok?”
Best Lok Lok – Padang Brown, afternoon, Pulau Tikus Market- Night time
Whats the best thing bout eating lok lok in penang?? The price!!! The most expensive stick is only at RM1+ KL ones are like super duper expensive. Can broke one. The record breaking is held by my Cheras friends, 4 guys – nearly 100 sticks. Scary huh..cos it’s cheap so they pok meng eat.
Best Burger – Tanjung Bungah, starts 630pm till late
It’s a small minivan that managed by old uncle and auntie. Very very nice lor the burger, mouth watering. Everytime, even when i’m like super full, i still wanna buy if i go around that area. It’s infront of Ingolf area. Everynight, you can see alot of cars lining up by the roadside just to buy this burger. and all those cars are like bmw, or merc cos rich people stay that area.
Best Pan Mee – the flats opposite Bukit Jambul Complex, around 11am +
This one, you must go early to beat those lunch time crowd. Or else the boss will tell you ‘boh liau” finish ady, so normally i will proceed to eat mcd. very sad. And then if you go there, there’s only 1 type of drinks. No other choices wan.
Best Duck Rice – Opp. Tanjung Bungah bus station, around lunch time finish ady. or Happy Coffee Shop, in Lipsin garden opposite Macro. I hate duck rice and that’s the only 2 places i will eat duck rice. It’s that good i tell you.

The corner coffeeshop when you are about to turn into TAR COLLEGE straight after you come out from Vales of Temp. Sorry i dono the coffee shop name, we all just nick name it Corner Shop. Only Rm2.20 per plate, cheap le, somemore got soup to go with it. A must try is the ” OR BAK”
So Young cafe, next to Lam Wah Ee hospital in Greenlane.
Best Cendol – The small lane along Penang Road, afternoon
This one no need to introduce also alot of people already know. Phua Chu Kang they all also tried before, so erm. Its good lor! Dono what to say, cos i prefer ice kacang anyday. If wanna be more adventourous, then try the “che chau” Green grass! Hohoh..try ady tell me what you think bout it yaBest Nasi Kandar – Raffee, Pulau Tikus
Opposite the police station, normally very full at night after clubbing time.
Another one i like to go is Ali, along penang road where got 1 famous Transex used to work name Siti. Heehehe..”she” likes to flirt with the guys and i was very entertain by her antics. They have very nice Roti Hong Kong – THAT KL TAKDA!!!!
Best Place to go if you have nothing to do in Penang for lunch and crave for fresh kinda exotic food – Ong Cheng Huat Permatang Pauh, Butterworth
Sorry, this one i know how to go but dono how to explain cos the way damn complicated. Erm, you see the big signboard TIGER BEER, then turn into a lorong. Voila, you see this hufe place! ahaaha *update* i know how to go already! You follow permatang pauh signboard, turn right when you have the OAT Factory on your right..then go straight all the way till you see the tiger beer & calberg signboard*
They have like the freshest steam fish ever, and extremely crispy popiah to go with. Their specialty is little chicken. It’s actually spring chicken la, so dont worry, we are not eating chicken little. The lil chicks are extremely popular and always sold out.
They also serve octopus and wild boars meat. To alco lovers, you can try their tuak here. Very fresh. Some people canot take the smell, but i like. It’s indian alcohol and made of coconut. infact i think it’s something like lassi.
Best Char Koey Teow – Macalister Road, sister charkoeyteow.
Surprisingly i dont eat charkoeyteow, but these are the one that people are crazy about in penang la.
Also, the super lansi and expensive one, Lorong Selamat. 1 plate can cost you RM5 and above, what move when you need to line up and get it yourself. ughh..i dont like.
AirItam – Late Afternoon
This one they had a stall suddenly out of no where, but people still line up to eat. No place to sit and no table to eat, so eat where? The hokkien mee is so nice that people will squat next to the toto shop just to eat this delicious stuff.
Best Char Kueh Kak – Batu Lanchang Market, afternoon
Selling is a very cute aunty with a super high pitch voice. Canot miss wan, cos very noticeable. although she’s like super short. hAHA..sorry.
Burmah Road, opposite Adventist Church, at night. Canot be miss one cos alot of car lining up for it as well
Best Seafood – Hau you, Teluk Kumbar
Ok, alot of people say the other place is nicer, but to me, this is the best place already. You eat on a beach, can see sunset if you go earlier. Estimate bout RM200 for 10 adults for about 8 dishes, the type you eat till gila and still canot finish type. The thing in the photo is “chi ley” spikey shell type. Just showing you people cos i know alot of people haven’t seen it before. My friend somemore collect the shell to give it to his gf as souveniour. Super sesat one. There’s a small stall selling just satay next to the seafood place. Although the satay is 60cent per stick, it’s super nice. so try la.
Best Koey Teow Th’ng – Jelutong Market, at night
Waroa…it’s still the best ok~ The soup taste like super nice and it’s also cheap. If i’m not wrong still below RM2 per bowl. Even though it already naik harga also wont be above RM2.50
Mount Eskine afternoon, try the dry one though, with loads of mushrooms!! The uncle is a very funny and polite guy =)
Best Beef Noodle – Sri Weld Food court, lunch time
Best Dim Sum – Tai Thong, somewhere near Kimberly Street
This one i always go with my family on sunday mornings and also with my grandaddy every morning when he drop me off to school. Its so best that normally have to wait for a table like mad. Advice, drop some people to wait for table while you go find parking, cos it’s super hard to find a spot in penang old town too.
Best Layer Cake – Sunflower Bakery, along tanjung bungah
Best place for chinese food when you are sick of mamak after clubbing – Green House, Burmah Road.
I think its the few that opens till 5am and has a lot of varieties. Try the “yue sang kai chok” /porridge. It’s good.
Perak Road – Economy Rice during midnight. Famous for “Or Bak” which is dark soy sauce pork.
Best Loh Mee – the coffee shop next to adventist Church, opposite union primary school along burmah road. Only Afternoon.
Best Economy Rice – Perak Road.
The area where alot of motors and scary people stays. HAHAha..teongli dont kill me. Yet, they have the best and cheapest economy rice. The tau eew bak, is very best!!
Best Bak Chang – Swatow Lane, and The van beside adventist church along burmah road. It’s also afternoon only.
Best Soyabean – Island Glades, there’s a shop selling only soyabean. Very famous.
At night, would be the one at Terengganu Road infront of Eden.
Best Afternoon Delight Dessert/ Oh Kioh – Pengkalan Weld Afternoon, Chulia Street Night time
It’s a very cooling to eat when you got nothing to do in the hot afternoon. Consists of jellies, a slice of lemon, shaved ice and also lychee. Good for heaty body also =) The stall is just opposite the one selling the goreng pisang. Can’t be missed.
Best Indian Mee Goreng – Mount Eskine afternoon, damn good, fried by chinese guy somemore.
Best Roti Babi – Old Folk’s Home, Scott Road(behind adventist hospital)
Although the name is roti babi, but it’s NO PORK! ok? I also don’t know the reason it’s called roti babi, but its actually spring rolls with some meat. The most important ingredient to the whole thing is that you must eat it HOT and with the black sauce which i highly suspect it’s HP sauce.
I canot think anymore..That’s all for now.HEHE enjoy. Im going back penang now, will add in photos i took 3 days after tis. Mostly wont online cos penang monitor already blow..hehe…
