(Warning: Strictly foodies only!)
I recently went for a short trip to Penang. While it was essentially only 2 full days, my friends and I ate so much, practically non-stop, from morning till night. So much Char Kway Teow. Can’t get enough of it for sure. We literally had it from breakfast till supper.
It was crazy.
But so, so good.
As it was durian season, we also went for a super cheap and good durian buffet, at only RM 45. Converting to Singapore dollars to approximately at SGD 10, and with all- you- can- eat quality durians (read: Mao Shan Wang), it’s every Singaporean’s dream come true.
I have added all the recommended food places below with the addresses. Happy drooling! By the way, I think the best way to get around Penang is with Grab cars as it’s super cheap!
