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.
