  • This place has undergone massive renovations and transformations. A must whenever you are in Penang to sample local delicacies
  • tasty, cheap vegetarian food big big plate of fried noodle only cost $6/=, kopi cost $1/=. mee rebus, wan tan mee, $4/=
  • Good area for budget shopping.... Need to walk a little and look around and also have to bargain..
  • Morning market with a good variety of fresh meat and veg including some specialities , such as live snakehead fish ( ikan haruan 生鱼)which is not easily available in other markets.
  • Perfect place to have breakfast between locals and enjoy a great freshly brewed coffee. I can recommend the koay teow th'ng (noodle soup), which was very tasty and only 4 RM.
