nice photos. Thanks for sharing! ;-)


That koay chiap place in Kimberley St served the most perfect bowl of rice noodles & offal I've ever had in my life. I tried a bowl during a holiday in Penang more than 10 years ago, but the memory of that dish still stayed with me till now!


REstaurant looks a bit dirty to me, just sayin'.


was just in Penang on holiday, the food there was fantastic! love your photographs.

I've tried the koay chiap before as it is one of the utimate in Penang. Where else the Chew Kee stir-fries I haven't try before. Will going to try that out next week :)


Gurney Drive is more tourist friendly, but the food sold there does not even compare to real delicious Penang gourmet that is sold at smaller and lesser attractive hawker stands.
