Free and Easy Trip in Penang - Day 2 - Gurney Drive Food Court - Dated 11 Sep 2013

Taxi driver drop us at this food court around Gurney Drive, Penang, Georgetown, Malaysia. We didn't managed to find the actual address but this place seem a hot spot place for Foodies.

You can see from the photo, most of the tables were fully occupied. 

Rojak Stall manage by a Chinese man.

Penang local Rojak mainly focus on Fruits,Cuttlefish and You Tiao (油条)

Fruit Rojak
RM $4.00
Rating: 9/10

Fresh ingredients used in the Rojak. Especially Cuttlefish and You Tiao.


Dark sauce is made of Prawn Paste or Shrimp Paste, very strong smell but do not taste too fishy. Penang Rojak has a more strong flavour than the type we had in Singapore.  

Strongly recommend this stall for their Rojak. You Tiao was so crunchy and crispy that I thought it was cracker.

Curry Mee was another well known food in Penang. Commonly seen along the street or Food Court.

Dessert Stall also commonly seen in Penang. I think local people also love sweet tooth food. 

Asam Laksa
Rating 8/10

Penang Asam Laksa used a spicy-sour fish soup base. Maybe not everyone will like the sour taste. For me, I think Asam Laksa tasted delicious.

The main ingredients for asam laksa include shredded fish, not sure is kembung fish or mackerel, and some finely sliced vegetables including cucumber, onions, red chillies, pineapple, lettuce, mint leave. 

Asam laksa is normally served with either thick rice noodles or thin rice noodles (vermicelli). And topped off with "Petis Udang" or "Shrimp Paste" (蝦糕).
