Description

This 4-hour tour will start from your hotel lobby at your chosen time slot of 9:00AM or 2:30PM. Meet and greet your professional English-speaking driver or guide and start your tour in a clean air-conditioned vehicle. Explore the back lanes of Penang off the beaten track, where you’ll make four or five stops to taste delightful snacks, drinks, and desserts. Along the way, listen to your foodie guide describe the street-food phenomenon in Penang. Infused with a variety of spices, Malaysian food showcases Malay, Chinese, and Indian flavors. Try traditional fritters such as prawn, tofu or yam; bite into Penang lobak, a spiced deep-fried pork roll; slurp signature noodles; and sample delicious seafood among other savory snacks. When it’s time for dessert, sink your teeth into a sweet Indian pancake called an apom — deliciously crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Or, try a bite-sized kuih, a traditional sweet treat made of sticky glutinous rice. Other delectables available are heow piah (brown-sugar biscuits), coconut tarts and a variety of tropical fruits: jackfruit, assorted guava, coconut, dragon fruit, rambutan, and mangosteen. Drink it all down with a local favorite, choosing from a variety of non-alcoholic options including lime juice with sour plum, nutmeg juice, Chinese herbal tea, grass jelly, chrysanthemum, winter melon, fresh calamansi lime juice with plain or rose syrup, and more.
