Nothing comes close to Penang street food. This time, the Gourmet Traveller falls head over heels for street food you have to try at least once in your life.

We have a treasure here worth preserving and protecting.

Is Penang Asia’s best place to eat street food? Pat Nourse ventures to the Malaysian island and finds a paradise for hungry diners.

Penang is a tropical island where, as one local puts it, “the weather never changes so everyone talks about food instead”. Here, eating isn’t so much a way to pass the time or simply sustain life, but rather, the national sport. Every Penangite is a player. And, regardless of their background, they play to win.
