Penang Street Food

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.
