Penang is a hawker paradise with a huge variety of interesting street food stalls offering plenty of good and reasonably priced Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisine. I revel in the delights of hawker food, sold throughout the market area, neighbourhood stalls and the narrow back alleys of Penang.

Some of the stalls offer sitting areas while others have none, so you may have to eat while standing up – a bit of a challenge. However, it’s an even bigger challenge to decipher what goes into each dish and just where those flavours dancing on your palate stem from. This is where I can help.

 Teochew Cendol

What it is: Teochew Cendol is definitely the most popular dessert in Penang. The dessert is made of finely shaved ice, boiled red beans, aromatic palm sugar or gula Melaka, creamy coconut milk and the queen ingredient is the soft green bean flour noodles flavoured by fragrant pandan juice called cendol.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to a wonderful place for mee udang. The makan outing had brought us to the mainland. Located in Bukit Mertajam at Seberang Perai, this place is known as Selera Sri Tambang.

Our family has always been a fan of Korean Food, especially the barbeque. Complemented with kimchi, the barbeque is definitely a nice change from the usual Chinese dishes.

Since it was the Merdeka Day holiday, we crossed over to the newly opened Jusco Bandar Perda in Bukit Mertajam, Penang for our food hunting. This time around, we visited Che Go Korean BBQ Restaurant.  Getting there was the easy part but the jam upon entering the complex was deafening. After finding a car park and with growling tummies, we quickly made our way to the restaurant.
