Gurney Drive Hawker Centre
The most popular hawker food area with a variety of food for which Penang is well known all over the world. This spot is an institution by itself with people driving for eight hours from as far away as Singapore just to enjoy some of the foods sold at this food centre.
It is the place of conciliation of all the delicacies one should try from Penang - Penang curry mee, assam laksa (noodles in a fish-based sour broth), ais kacang (a shaved ice dessert), cendol (a coconut milkbased shaved ice dessert), and rojak (a local salad); it is, thus, perfect, for your one-stop sampling of what Penang has to offer. There are downsides, however the prices have burgeoned along with its popularity and the traffic around the area proves to be a hassle.
