Watch them make the noodles which, damn, ain't easy. Then eat them. With dumplings. BBQ with honey dipping sauce is also recommended. This is the spot.

This is a must try place when you visit Penang. Several dishes which needs special mention are the roast pork with dark soy sauce, asam fish and fried chicken.

This place was recommended by a friend. Had dinner there after spending an afternoon walking around Armenian Street. Delicious Chinese zhi char place with fresh seafood . Expect to wait if you do not make prior reservations.

Home style cook food that tastes just ok. I really don't understand what with all the hype. Tried several times just to make sure if it's really that good. Food taste just ok, not too bad but nothing to be bragged about.
