Taste Penang's best street food, a reflection of its multicultural society

Penang is acknowledged as one of Asia's best street food havens and destination. Penang's food is a reflection of its diverse multicultural society.

Many of these foods are sold in movable stalls along the streets in Georgetown; hence the name "street food" or "hawker food". Of late, many of these stalls are grouped at food courts but the quality of these street foods remains unchanged as before.

It offers a mix of traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes, besides fusion cuisines such as Baba Nyonya food. It is a blend of Chinese, Malay and Thai cooking methods. Popular among locals and tourists alike, Penangites would agree that these hawker foods are cheaper and easier to eat as they are available throughout the day and until late at night usually.

Penang was ranked by CNN Travel as one of the top ten street food cities in Asia on February 22, 2013 . Penang has recently been named 2nd out of 17 best places to visit in 2017 by CNN.
