2D1N Penang Itinerary - Food & Sightseeing

Instead of going on a date to fancy restaurant and movies, I decided to go on a short vacation to Penang to celebrate Valentine's Day. It has been 4 years since my first visit to Penang and I was actually craving for Penang foods. We planned a 2D1N trip to Penang. Penang is well-known for its local hawker fare in Malaysia and it's a must visit place for food lovers. (All the price stated below are for 4pax)

A must have in Penang and it's worth the wait in the scorching sun. Don't you agree guys? It's too sweet to my likings and if they tone down the sweetness level, it would be great, however  I will surely come back again as it's just too addictive.

9.30pm: Dinner at Gurney Drive Hawker Centre @ Pulau Tikus

My favorite place to hang out in Penang at night. It has  plenty of stalls to choose from so you might be confused to choose what you are gonna buy. Everything looks good and you wish to try whatever you see in other people’s table. Hahahaha!! We tried Oyster Omelette, Char Kuey Teow, Rojak and Tom Yum Noodle. I love their Char Kuey Teow and Rojak the most. Sure, drop by again for it.

This place was used to be my must visit place for Assam Laksa in Penang but not anymore. The quality deteriorated since my previous visit and for such a small bowl now cost RM 5. Well if it's good, the price will not be an issue but damn it's more watery than ever. Definitely, NOT ANYMORE.
