Dinner At Fisherman Wharf, Penang

ANOTHER FOOD HUB TO VISIT ... for tourists and locals alike...

Yes, Penang has lots of hawker food to offer, it has been ongoing for many decades, even at road sides, unlike Ipoh, most of the hawker stalls are either in food courts or many have "wrapped up" for the day.  The new generation has turned to cafes with a more comfortable and cooling ambience.  

Coming back to my post, the place I took my dinner recently was at the Fisherman's Wharf, near the Karpal Singh esplanade.  Parking is easily accessible and this is one of the largest food courts in town.  More than 40 stalls, the food consists of Penang's most liked, that is... white curry mee, Hokkien mee, Koay Teow Th'ng, Lor Bak, Hokkien Char... too many to name.  Besides the local food, they also served international food such as Arabian food (I saw many ordering from this stall), Thai food, Pizza, Japanese and Korean.  Prices are not overwhelming.... good to go for a meal in the evening, facing the sea and feeling the breeze... LOL... 

I couldn't get a place facing the sea unfortunately....
So I was seated right on this Carlsberg table...
I like Hokkien char...
A combination of koay teow (flat noodles) and meehoon mixed...
Quite a big portion, it cost RM9...
The Pasembur looks so good...
Thick gravy flooding over the crispy fritters...
We can choose what we like... not the standard type...
As usual, our food needs to be shared among us two...
And that was all we could eat for the night...

  1. Miss the pasembur. We can't get that here. Our rojak tambi isn't quite the same.

  2. How come your Penang Hokkien char doesn't have black sauce? What you had looks more like our Cantonese yin yong. P/S: Most cafes will never be able to turn out hawker food as tasty as the old-school hawker/roadside stalls (the young don't know what they're missing...lol).

    1. Don't go cafes then. Just eat at roadside stalls forever and ever.

    1. Hokkien char or char hor fun is actually a combination of mihon and koay teow... in other states, it is known as yin yong... Hokkien char in other states is the big noodles (tai look mee)... hahaha... different states different interpretion.

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
