Description

Waste no time in starting your Penang food tour, as you head for breakfast to one of the oldest traditional Malaysian Chinese coffee shops, known as kopitiam. Dating back to 1940, your first taste of the day is a Malay breakfast of nasi lemak (rice cooked in coconut milk) with chili paste and a boiled egg. You’ll also get to try prawn fritters and lobak, a five-spiced deep-fried pork roll that’s a delicacy in Nonya cuisine.

Next, dig into unusual fruits like rambutan, mangosteen, dukong and, if you’re daring enough, the king of Malaysian fruit: durian, at one of the oldest markets in Penang. As you continue your food tour, don't miss the historical streets with preserved heritage buildings and hidden back lanes, along the way.

For those of you who may not be aware, Penang showcases some of the best street food of Malay, Chinese, and Indian flavours. From assamlaksa (rice noodles in sour fish soup), to char kuey teow (fried flat rice noodles), and murtabak (an Indian Muslim bread with meat fillings) in Penang’s oldest Indian Muslim restaurant, dating back to 1907, you can truly say you've tried all the food there is, in Penang.

Oh and if you're wondering what's for dessert, a cool bowl of cendol (a serving of ice shavings with green doughy strips and red beans covered with coconut milk), should do the trick. End your tour by sipping on local drinks such as hot tehtarik, (pulled tea), lime juice with sour plum, nutmeg juice, and much more.

*Pick-up at Soho Free House, Penang Road (next to Peking Hotel). Drop-off at Penang Road, opposite the police headquarters.
