is an increasingly island half of whose coastline separated


George Town

This post canada goose outlet black friday sale was first published a little over two years ago, and it been one of the most viewed and shared posts ever since. We still here in, still eating around and taking in life in the city. Sometimes it seems that things never change here, but of course they do. And over five years after moving from Kuala Lumpur to Penang island we continue to stumble across new to us spots. We what we as folks living in the heart of the city, right now. canada goose outlet orlando But we can well what struck us as observers on finding canada goose outlet in chicago a story, and what we from and liked best about the city as travellers without a mission.week I (Robyn) receive emails asking for recommendations for restaurants and hawker stalls, for hotels, for non street food places to eat. There already loads of Penang and info on this as well as in articles I written for the New York Times, SBS Feast, Wall Street Journal Asia, Travel Leisure Southeast Asia and other publications. now, as tourism to the UNESCO world heritage site I canada goose outlet ottawa call home by leaps and bounds, it a good time to pull some loose ends together into a post that will canada goose factory outlet toronto location hopefully insure visitors make the most of their time planning a visit to Penang know first that is the place to stay. island beaches just don rate, especially compared with others in the region. is an increasingly island half of whose coastline separated from a busy shipping port by canada goose parka outlet uk a well traversed strait. which doesn for pristine waters. And, unfortunately,increasingly larger swathes of the island are to unsightly development; north up the east side of the island from past kilometer after kilometer of eyesores and you see what I mean. Red tile roofs mark old shop houses.and a serious of boutique hotels, cafes and trinket shops the resultant loss of many long time residents Town is still, somehow, very Moreover is unique in the region for its rich (and fairly intact) cityscape, loads of authentic canada goose outlet factory (ie. not for theater” (the Hungry Ghost festival is on as I write this) and fabulous canada goose outlet ontario food, especially on the street. of all, is completely walkable. A reasonably fit individual can walk the heritage site canada goose outlet online store end to end (Penang Road to Weld Quay, Prangin Canal to Fort Cornwallis) less than an hour.WHEN TO GOPenang climate much like that of many other canada goose outlet store calgary places in the world is a bit screwy: it rains during the dry season, is dry during the wet season. In short, there really no bad time to visit (even when it rains showers never last all day), though there are some less good and times than others. Many Chinese hawkers close during the first week, or at least the first 3 days, of Chinese New Year and February, March and April are often beastly hot (you won want to be out walking between 11:30AM and 4:30 or 5pm). August is a great time to visit Penang, both for the Festival canada goose outlet montreal and for Hungry Ghost month, observances of which reach a frenzy in Penang not seen elsewhere in the region. Photographers flock to Penang for Thaipusam (January or February; the festival is several days long and involves a procession from George Town Little India to a temple on a hill in the middle part of the island) and the Nine Emperor Gods Festival (September or October), which lasts for nine days and culminates in a night time procession canada goose shop uk the ends with small unmanned boats filled with offerings being set afire in the waters off Weld Quay. (Dave a multimedia of the event here. Turn your sound watch.)WHERE TO EATlist is far from comprehensive, it could extend for pages. I won claim that any of these spots are The Best this or that isn that a fairly useless exercise when taste is so subjective? but they are places that I, and folks I refer, consistently enjoy. enough here to you busy and well fed for a good 3 days or so. Addresses are listed or are to be found in links.Tek SenThese days you rarely find Tek Sen this quietfirst meal here was in 2009, back when Teochew Chinese Malaysian restaurant Tek Sen was a glorified stall with tables occupying an alley and a five foot way, before it had a Facebook page and an illustrated menu and a few years before its mention in a Lonely Planet guide made tourists as often seen here as locals. When Tek Sen tripled its capacity by relocating to current double shophouse premises we feared the worst. But quality has remained high, probably because the family that opened the place 25 or so years ago canada goose outlet london uk is still on hand, in the kitchen and the of house, to insure that your bacon is every bit as savory salty sweet lardy Canada Goose Outlet as it should be.days the queues are (but it worth the wait, we promise!), so go early (around 6pm), late (around 830pm but beware customers are often turned away by 8:45), or for lunch (11 am to 2 pm). After all these years Tek Sen is canada goose outlet in canada still the first place we take visitors for a meal, and for good reason. of our dishes from a very long menu: Teochew steamed fish with tomatoes, tofu and sour plum; gully tumis; French beans stir fried with pork; steamed homemade tofu; pork belly with preserved mustard greens; potato leaves stir fried with sambal or garlic; bean sprouts with salted fish; tamarind prawns; pig trotters stewed in Chinese black vinegar and of course bacon candy (aka double cooked pork with chilies). Ask about the specials on the white board (written in Chinese).Foong Wei, Sri Bahari half a block from Penang RoadAfter Tek Sen, the dinner spot we recommend most often is this classic oldish Chinese Malaysian restaurant just outside the core conservation zone. Expect fluorescent lights, red tablecloths and brusque service along with very good kind of retro (in a non hipster way) food. We like the mango chicken, prawn spring rolls, roast pork leg and spinach with century egg. You can also ask for recommendations. Yuen, Campbell Street near Cintrato this old Cantonese spot for the tea and the atmosphere plenty of old timers while away hours here. There is poached and roast chicken rice which is good but not as official canada goose outlet good as that at Keng Pin (see below), and the odd dim sum and pork buns which are OK. Noodle dishes are excellent try the sang har meen.Nasi Padang/nasi Melayu at International HotelGado gado on the left, pineapple curry and fried tempeh with green chilies on the right, deep fried fried fish up top the best nasi campur (“mixed rice”, ie. rice and curries) in, perhaps on all of Penang island. The owners of this stall migrated a couple decades ago from Sumatra, and the Indonesian island influences come through in dishes like deep fried tempeh with green chilies and dried anchovies, long eggplants fried to silkiness and doused with fiery red chili canada goose outlet uk fake paste, beef jerky deep fried with red chilies and an addictive sambal made with grilled green chilies and tiny fish. Pineapple curry, whole round eggplant in an Indian ish curry leaf flecked curry, papaya leaves stewed in coconut milk, chicken canada goose victoria parka outlet stewed in manis canada goose outlet online reviews and red chilies and pineapple achar say “Malaysia”, and the Chinese touch can be seen in a mild tofu skin and rice vermicelli soup. The amazing spread here includes several types of whole fish (look for deep fried specimens spilling crispy caramelised sambal rubbed sliced onions), a few different sambals and plenty of vegetarian options including, occasionally, do it yourself gado gado. Open till 4 or 5, but this is really a lunch noon for the best selection, and know that this place gets really crowded (as in No Seats) on weekends. Happily Woodlands, a fairly comfortable (yet still ridiculously inexpensive) air conditioned cafe with a friendly staff, is still going strong. We go Woodlands for tiffin, the southern Indian term for morning and evening meals that do not revolve around rice and curries and other dishes but are comprised of deliciously specialties with fermented rice batter: thosai, idli, uttapam, etc. Kandar at Toon Leong CafeIs this the famous Penang nasi kandar stall that Anthony Bourdain ate at? NO. It better. by canada goose outlet hong kong the grandson of its founder, this little stall is at a kopitiam (coffee shop) run by the grandson of the guy who opened it over years ago. Service is canada goose outlet near me mornings only, most things are sold out by ten. became reacquainted with the fragrantly beef curry a week ago and am thrilled to report it as tender and delicious as ever. Leong kopi beng (iced coffee with sweet milk), surely one of the best in town, is especially nice sipped while sitting in one of the coffee shop unironically vintage booths. The coffee shop sells its ground coffee in 10 ringgit canada goose outlet price bags.Hainan chicken rice at Keng Pin on Penang Roadchicken rice may be Singapore national dish but we lucky to have a mighty excellent version here in. If you one of those folks who doesn “get” this dish try the version here, served from about 1130am (Mondays off) by an intense couple who don smile much but do know how to delicately poach a chicken to barest doneness and cook rice in the bird broth with garlic to perfection, grains tender and separate. The sourish chili sauce is nice too. Specify when you order, breast or leg/thigh, with or without skin.
