Cult recipes from the streets that make the city.

Penang is an explorer‚Äôs dream and a food-lover‚Äôs paradise. It‚Äôs¬†the¬†nasi lemak¬†or¬†kaya¬†toast eaten for breakfast, served with a hot cup of¬†kopi ‚ÄėO‚Äô¬†(black coffee), at one of¬†the city‚Äôs bustling food courts. It‚Äôs the rejuvenative laksa after a morning‚Äôs sight-seeing, followed by a cooling¬†cendol¬†in the afternoon heat. It‚Äôs the¬†char kuey teow¬†prepared in a flash at one¬†of the many late-night hawker stalls, washed down with local beer.¬†
