Penang is famous for its laksa, nasi kandar, char kuay teow, ore chien (oyster omelet), pesembor, loh bak, roti jala, and nyonya dishes such as otak-otak, Enche Kabin, and Curry Kapitan’. The best places for ‘laksa’ are Balik Pulau, and Ayer Hitam Market. ‘Nasi Kandar’ shops can be found at Burma Road, Jalan Dato Keramat, Magazine Road, Pitt Street, Penang Road and Chowrastalane. Chinese coffee shops serving chicken rice, bee hoon, prawn noodles, and other are found in Lebuh Chulia and the surrounding area. Sunshine Square in Gurney Drive and the Esplanade on Jalan Tun Syed Sheikh
Barakbah has many hawker stalls. For hawker food in air-conditioned comfort, go to the food courts in Komtar, Midlands Park Centre and Gurney Drive. Seafood restaurants are aplenty along Jalan Batu Feringghi and Teluk Bahang. Down in Chulia Street, there is a quaint food stand that is only open at night and specialises in Mexican fast food. Delicious with healthy servings yet good value. They serve tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, enchiladas, nochos and other Mexican-American flavours.



Shopping
Penang’s Grand Old Lady of shopping complexes is KOMTAR, which is still a popular place for economic buys. Newer malls include Gurney Plaza, Island Plaza, Midlands Park Centre, Kompleks Bukit Jambul, and Megamall Pinang.
For curious and antiques, go to Lebuh Bishop ad Lebuh Chulia. Indian goldsmiths are found along Jalan Kapitan Keling. Cane ware and wicker ware shops are sited along Jalan Pinang. Oriental Jewelery is available at Lebuh Campbell and Jalan Pinang. Local products such as dried nutmegs, betel nut, and satay fish are sold at Chowrasta Market, Air Hitam Market, and Kek Lok Si Temple. Souvenirs are found in abundance at stalls near the beach resorts. Tanjung Bungah is only ten minutes drive from the famous Gurney Drive’ and the nearby complexes of Island Plaza and Gurney Plaza.


Along Batu Ferringhi further west, numerous shops and hawker stalls line the road, remaining inconspicuous during the day but attention getting in the night with their bright lights. They sell T shirts, batik, leather goods and handicrafts.
