The Land of Street Food Gastronomy

Come to Penang and you’ll eat incredibly well.

Once known as the Pearl of the Orient, Penang is a Malaysian island state where gastronomic magic takes place! Known for its long-standing traditions, elderly aunties and uncles watching over pots and working on cast iron woks, many of these recipes were passed down from generation to generation.

Some of you may be familiar with some of these favourites: Hokkien mee (pork and prawn spicy noodle soup), lor bak (deep fried five-spiced pork wrapped in bean curd skin), kway teow soup (smooth rice noodles with pork and fish balls in a clear soup), rojak (mixed fruit and vegetable salad) tossed with sweet and pungent black shrimp paste, char koay teow (flat rice noodles fried with black soy sauce, eggs, bean sprouts, prawns and Chinese sausage), wanton mee with crisply fried dumplings, cendol – a dessert with green noodles in coconut milk, brown sugar and shaved ice…etc. Are you salivating already?

Eating street food is part of their daily life for Malaysians. There are endless places to eat in Penang. Ask the locals and they would tell you that each dish has one specific stall where it is done best. To savour a real cultural experience, you should visit an open air hawker center to find most types of local food as most delicacies are best sampled on the street.

For those of you who can’t make it to Penang, why not try our FantAsia Penang Curry Chicken? Made with skinless chicken cooked in an aromatic Malaysian curry with lots of fresh herbs and spices, made from scratch with fresh curry leaves. Fret not, non chilli eaters! The dish is not chili hot but full of flavour. Served with gluten-free rice, super rice or noodles. Available in all FantAsia outlets.
