We all know that Penang is an Asian food paradise. Penang is considered one of the best culinary destinations in the world, and has a wonderful mix of Malay, Indian and Chinese influences. Here are some street food options that you must try if you visit Penang:
1. Curry Mee
Curry mee is a rich, spicy and creamy coconut based curry soup with egg noodles and packed with flavour! Other ingredients commonly found in this dish include tofu, bean sprouts, pork blood curd, cuttlefish, shrimp, and scallops.
2. Char Kway Teow
Char kway teow is a dry noodle dish that is considered to be the most iconic street food in Penang! It is made of flat rice noodles which are fried in a frying pan over a very high charcoal fire which gives off an appetizing aroma of grilled smoke.
There's no better break from a hot day than a bowl of cold cendol, a sublime sweet dessert made of coconut milk, palm sugar syrup and green rice flour jelly.
4. Roti Canai
Roti canai is one of the best known examples of Malaysian Indian cuisine and a popular breakfast dish and snack in Malaysia. It is a circular flatbread that is soft and crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside, usually served hot with curry sauce.
5. Roti Jala
Roti Jala literally translates as 'Clean Bread' and is a popular Penang street food. This savory crepe is made from a mixture of flour, egg, milk, and turmeric powder, and the thin threads of this dough are skillfully dropped as they spin into a large hot skillet to make a thin crepe due to the holes in it.
