Description

With its abundance of roadside stalls selling a tantalizing mix of Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Thai cuisine, George Town is a city tailor-made for walking and eating. Sample your way through the city's most mouthwatering hawker food as a local guide shows you the best spots for munching on the go.

Take your pick of 3 delicious routes determined by the dishes you get to try, and meet up with your guide at your hotel before setting out to begin your tasting extravaganza. Your destination is one of the city's world-famous hawker centers, where bustling stalls beckon you with the irresistible aromas of simmering broth, fried noodles, seafood, and spices.

Prepare to enter foodie heaven as your guide leads you to different stalls to purchase local dishes that showcase Penang's rich culinary and cultural heritage. Dig into Indian Muslim fried noodles with cuttlefish known as mamak mee goreng sotong, savor the spicy and sour fish broth of assam iaksa, or bite into crispy prawn fritters fresh out of the frying pan. And make sure to save room for chendol, a dessert of glutinous rice cooked in creamy coconut milk.

In between tasting sessions, enjoy time to visit a nearby attraction or two, and learn from your guide's wealth of knowledge about the area. As your delicious experience comes to an end, head back to your hotel with a full belly and a deeper appreciation for Penang's unique cuisine.
