Medan Selera Mutiara is another popular hawker center in Tanjung Bunga, Penang with many tasty hawker food. The stalls are managed by various races of hawkers, each renowned for its specialty. The food court is surrounded by a row of shop houses where Ingolf German Restaurant and Vintage Bulgaria Restaurant is located.


This is plate of Char Koay Teow from Rudy’s with several average size prawns and cockles. The taste is unlike the Chinese version, indeed a lip smacking plate of noodles with a very delightful twist.



We had some Chinese food… a bowl of beehoon soup with fish slices and a plate of Hokkien Char beehoon. The stall offers a variety of seafood to go with the beehoon soup.



This bowl of Tom yum with maggi mee is not too sourish and I could easily taste the pungent smell of the herbs and ingredients. It is available from a ‘chu char’ stall which is run by two Malay ladies. They do cook many varieties of dishes to go with white rice too.


This is the popular nasi ayam stall which is managed by three young men. The chicken is fresh and tasty as it is roasted on the spot. You can choose to have it with fried rice or white rice.






Besides the usual beverages, you could easily enjoy the cool ice cream from Tony’s Ice Kacang stall. We had the delightful mixed fruit cocktail with ice cream and crushed peanuts.



This food court mainly operates at night, however there are a few stalls open during the day as well. Its location is slightly out of the town area, however the abundance of choice may tempt you to make a trip up here. It also offers Western Food, Satay and Burger, with prices of food averaging around RM4 to RM5.

This food court is one my favourite place as this is the only food court near by my house…

You should give it a try on the malay nasi goreng ayam pedas which is on the right hand corner… and also the chendol which is next to the beehoon soup stall… yumyum…

Never ever order the food from the stall that the stall ppl will hand in a menu whenever customers sit down (the guy with a sling bag)… The food is sucks…

oooh.. the ice cream looks good. how much was it? though obviously canned cocktail and probably Nestle’s or King’s ice cream, but tempting nonetheless!

Food Paradise – The beehoon soup is good, looks like they still manage to maintain the good taste till today.

Little Inbox – For something light, go for the beehoon soup and a taste of the ‘old fashioned’ ice cream.

550ml jar of faith – I must check out the stall selling this nasi paprik too…thanks.

Emai2me – Try many times already…usually get two burgers as one is not enough.

Jian – It is just directly opposite Copthorne Hotel, you can see it as you drive pass on the main road.

Thanks for introducing the CKT in Sg Dua :)

I used to frequent this place with my hubby in the past, but haven’t visit it lately for the past couple of months. I wonder if the lamb chop/fast food stall is still around? :)

Yes, agreed that the Malay Western Food is nice.. Should try out their burger from the same western food stall, served with fries and their home made black pepper sauce. Very nice..
