About the tour

Penang is known in Malaysia as the food capital and what better way than to explore the street food this island has to offer. As we walk past the monuments of Penang we take a step back to the time when Penang was formed as a settlement.  As we try different dishes we explore the traditions and culture that makes Penang food so unique and delicious. Have a light (or no) breakfast to prepare for all the local favorites such as Roti Chennai, Penang Laksa, Nasi Lemak and more.

    I can’t praise this tour more highly! Totally personalised with the friendly, knowledgeable and articulate Mark as your hometown guide, you stroll through the streets of Penang, not too far at a time, and sit and chat in the cool food stalls and restaurants which highlight the varied delights of all sorts of ‘tucker’ in Penang. Added to that, Mark’s extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Penang allows him to tell you all sorts of things which surprise and interest! Even on a hot day, the pace is right. We don’t usually do ‘tours’, but this is more like having a new friend to show you around his city! Thanks!
