    The Malaysian street food is really one of the biggest draws of Penang. The food is excellent, varied and surprisingly cheap. The hawker stalls and kopitiams are a great place to get some local flavor. They're clean and often open pretty late.

    Eating, especially at the hawker stalls, is one of the main things to do in George Town. Wan Tan Mee and Char Kuey Teow are two of my favorite and both done up very well in Penang.

    Georgetown is famous for its street food - or hawker food, as reference by the locals. Its street cuisine is truly representative of Malaysia, which is predominantly influenced by the melting pot of the Malay, Chinese and Indian communities.

    Georgetown is the main city of Penang, an island off the coast of Malaysia. Georgetown has a large Chinese community, and their influence is considerably noticed through their food. The food hawker stands are all throughout Georgetown, and most if not all the stands make amazing food. Go to any and partake in the Penang street food experience.

    Hire yourself a driver for a day, and tell him to take you where he would eat! All over the island are hidden gems you would never find; whether you want to try Roti Channai, or the delicious and aromatic Char Kway Teow, a local guide is still a hassle free way of finding where to go!
