While this coffee shop has a few food stalls, you would find many people coming here for particularly for one stall.

Everyone would patiently waiting at their own table after making their order from this char koay teow stall.

Many said it is one of the best char koay teow you can find in Penang, and the wait could be up to half an hour.

You would enjoy the wok hey taste with 2 pieces of prawn there. Close to the airport, making it a perfect stop for brunch before flying off.

Last not not least, you have to grab some apom from this stall outside the coffee shop as well.

Sai Ram is so popular that their orders constantly coming in, with people either wait around the stall for takeaway, or waiting patiently inside the coffee shop.

Their apom with a egg on the top is the most popular item.

One of the popular coffee shop you can find in Pulau Tikus, for the various food stalls available here in the early morning.

I’m actually surprised to see MICHELIN Guide awarded Bib Gourmand to this stall recently, considering this is not something well-known dish that you can find in Penang.

But Ghee Lian is a stall within the Esplanade Food Court beside the sea, selling their popular green tomyam with noodles. And you can choose to go with either the fish, prawn or sotong.

I would recommend to go with the fish meat instead, and pair with beehoon. You would love the green curry that gets spicy as you drink more.

The fish pieces are fried with great texture inside, accompanied by enokis and tomatoes.

Everyone should familiar with Gurney Plaza, the most popular shopping mall in Penang.

Here there’s lots of food choices and I found this place has a very high rating of 4.9 among thousand reviews.

A Thai restaurant at the basement, and I do agree with the rating considering the taste is actually decent.

Gotten their green curry chicken, belachan kangkung and fried omelette.

It is getting very hard to find this rare food nowadays, which it is a type of starch that extracted from palm.

You still can find this from the Cecil Market, they would stir-fried it with bean sprouts, soy sauce and chili paste.

The texture is like soft jelly but chewable, savoury taste.

Located within the coffee shop along the quiet street in the morning, many locals would come here to grab a bowl of curry mee in the morning before going to work.

The chilli paste really made the kick as you mix it with the curry, savouring the taste of everything with all the ingredients.

This food truck is one of them you can find behind GAMA Department Store, just beside KOMTAR.

Many locals would drop by here to grab a bowl of warm dessert, which they called it bubur, porridge in English. But it is definitely not the porridge you would imagine.

Ali Bubur served only a few types of porridge dessert including this pulut hitam, which is the black glutinous rice you would familiar with.

Sweet and comforting dessert you can find from Ali Bubur. Add a scoop of glutinous rice like mine to complete it.

Beside their signature drinks, they also served some pretty decent pastries here. For example this blueberry butter pudding.

Crusty almond on the top, with soft pudding at the bottom stuffed with blueberries.

Pair well with the coffee here.
