During festive seasons like for the past few days, many local tourist will flock to Penang shore as Penang is famous for hawker/street food. It can attract tourist as far as Singaporean to drive all the way to satisfy their crave on food and some of the Best of Penang Street Food is still top in the list of many people.
For example a little stall that smack at the junction of Lebuh Keng Wee and Penang Road that many people surely wont miss this little stall that had been operating more 10 years and till date it had attracted many people from far
willing to queue up under the hot sun just for this small bowl of:
Penang Road Famous Teo Chew Cendul and Ice Kacang @ RM1.90
It was used to be an old uncle that scoop and prepare this and I believe now had been taken over by his son.
This is what is called Penang famous Cendul, its filled with shaved ice, green grass jelly, red bean and coconut milk ontop, lastly just topped with some gula melaka. Undoubtly, this little bowl sure will satisfy your crave and cools you down under this hot weather.
Like some of my KL friends did, they are satisfied and enjoying every sip of it.

Next destination is this place where no doubt that recently Penang Laksa had been in the list of world top 10 food that must eat which I am surely proud off and many of my friends that come Penang the first thing they mention is they want to eat Asam Laksa.
I was recently introduce to this stall by my friend that this is another new joint that I found that served good laksa as I find that the one at Ayer Itam Market is very commercialise and I do not really like the taste of it. I find that this taste much better.
This few hawker stalls is located at the round about of Ayer Itam Junction and now it had attracted many other local tourist as when I was there, alot people speak cantonese in the area.
This is one fine bowl of laksa that comes with a lot of mixture of vegetable such as finely sliced vegetables including onions, cucumber, red chillis, pineapple, lettuce, mint and pink bunga kantan then shower a few rounds with sour and and a bit spicy soup base, also a spoonfull of ‘Heh Koh’ (prawn paste). RM3.50
The noodle is silky smooth and slurp it all the way into my mouth, texture of it a bit chewy that comes to my liking. Soup base is one of my prefered choice as it cook along with fish meat that had been smash and every sip I can bite some of the fish meat. It is sour and spicy enough that can satisfy my crave.
Next stall that is quite famous among there is this Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup that the soup is very aromatic with its well cook soup base with duck bone, pork bone and a few other ingredients that make it sweet, served along with duck meat and some pork lard to make it superb in taste. RM 3.50
Penang Rojak is also another dish that you must have which is a mixture of fruits and mix with prawn paste. This is not the best stall and find that the prawn paste is quite salty and its expensive as for this small portion its RM4.
