    I love the Ais Tingtap place! Was one of my best experiences in Malaysia; very friendly and tasty! I wish you would have posted this last year at this time because I missed out on so many good eats! Maybe next visit.

        Most certainly I will because I really like your blog and those GPS are so useful for me to find the place. My Nokia photo reads 5.420571, 100.332823

    Vkeong Bro. Within 48 hours of Penang Food Guide is a tough list to make.Its quite accurate but I’m of a constructive opinion that Curry Mee should be on the list and one recommendation of char koay teow shall suffice.I live at Dato Keramat and I find the Siam Road Char Koay Teow hard to get, his business hours isnt really 3pm to 11pm. Great List though Bro!

    We were hunting for the good ole’ Ais Kacang the last time we went there in July but none of the one we tasted was any good. We frequented one stall in Pulau Tikus, it was run by an old man. I remembered that day, we ordered a bowl and then it rained lol

    It has been more than a decade since I last visited Penang, and I plan to go there with the family sometime soon. This is a fantastic food guide, would definitely be a tremendous help – most appreciated!

    This was awesome. My friends and I went up to Penang over the weekend and this served as our Bible to dining in Penang! :)

    No matter how tasty is the foods,if the hawker is careless about public health and hygiene,I.e using plastic plates or bowls instead of ceramic,especially using plastic ware to contain boiling soup or water,using laundry soap powder which contain silicon instead of detergent to wash their bowls and plates,provide chemical dyed chilling sauce instead of ground fresh chill .Cancer is getting popular in Penang,hawker foods is one of the reason

    I love your work. Could not have agreed more with most of your recommendations. I hope to see more addition to your Penang’s food guide in the near future.

    i have never encountered her being rude so I guess I’m lucky. but i noalrlmy take the CKT at P.Tikus market in the evenings. the sound of ah leng’s is good too should try it when i’m next in town.vk: Yeah Ah Leng has big prawns and not that expensive and arrogant. But, I feel the koay teow’s taste is not as good as sisters/lorong selamat one though. Just my 2 cents

    Love your work very much. The only set back is it is making me hungry just looking at all the Penang fantastic hawker food. And the worse thing is I am now a Swedish citizen, missing all the good stuffs in my hometown Penang. At present I can only enjoy having ‘SEE food* from a distant. So until my next trip to Penang.
