If you are in the Northam Beach Cafe in Penang, do check out the the nutty goodness of peanut candy and peanut sugar from Ang Seng Heong. Although both are made with peanuts, each has its own distinctive taste and texture.

The peanut candy, also known as kacang tumbuk or kong th’ng (in Hokkien) isn’t anything new. With scrumptious taste of peanuts and sugar, this crumbly snack has been around for ages and its recipe still remains a perennial favourite among customers.

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.

 Pan Mee

What it is: Pan Mee is also known as mee hoon kueh in Hokkien. You can have either the dry version or with soup. Pan mee is a type of noodle made of rice flour that is handmade manually on the spot. The prepared small lumps of dough are kept fresh in a tight container, and when the time comes, they’re flattened and cut into strips using a noodle-making machine.

SAMOSA

What it is: Savoury samosa & curry puffs are popular deep-fried snacks sold mainly at Indian and Malay street food stalls. They’re made out of dough cut into small pieces and stuffed with a savoury spicy filling. Fillings might vary slightly but most vendors have the vegetarian version filled with essentially spicy curry paste, potatoes and onions. The meaty version with chicken meat is also available. Samosas are normally triangular-shaped while curry puffs are crescent-shaped and tapered at the ends to keep the filling intact.

Jalan Raja Uda in Butterworth is overloaded with many hawker food stalls and some has since become beloved local dining spots. One such spot is the tom yam noodle stall located in a shoplot beside the SRJK (C) Kwong Wah Primary School. Due to not having a signboard, most customers brand it as the Kwong Wah Tom Yam for its near distance to the Chinese school.

Here, you will find warm comfort noodles cooked in clear soup besides the renowned tom yam soup.
