Penang Trip Blog Posts Summary
Our trip started with a brunch at Kedai Kopi New Cathay (新國泰茶室) at Penang for the Char Kuey Teow, Char Kuey Kak, Apom Manis and Hokkien Mee. There are many other stalls too that we didn’t get to try. This eating place is just a few minutes’ walk away from our awesome homestay, Havara Place.
Our eating adventure continues with sweet and cooling Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul 槟城律驰名潮州煎蕊.. Chendul or cendol is one of the popular Malaysian desserts.
After the delicious cendol, we went to eat sour and spicy Penang Air Itam Laksa 槟城亚依淡巴刹叻沙. This is of one the best place to eat laksa in Penang. If you come for Penang trip, this is definitely a must eat food.
For the dinner on the first night of our Penang trip, we went to eat seafood at Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant 阿水海鲜 at Jalan Paya Terubong, Ayer Itam, Penang. The seafood here is deliciously fresh and the price is quite reasonable. One of the recommended dinner for Penang trip besides the local Penang food.
After the dinner, we went to enjoy sunset at Penang Hill / Bukit Bendera. This is one of the highlight of our Penang trip for the unique experience of going up to the Penang Hill / Bukit Bendera.
In the next blog post, I shared about our stay at Havara Place Homestay, Penang. Havara Place Homestay is a nice place to stay for its strategic location and comfortable house.
On the second day of our Penang trip, we enjoyed local breakfast at Kedai Kopi Kong Thai Lai (广泰来茶室) at Hutton Lane, Georgetown, Penang. Must try here is the local coffee or tea and the soft boiled and bread toast.
After that, I blogged about my first Penang Ferry Experience from the Island to Butterworth
During the second night of our Penang trip, we stayed at Aroma Hotel Butterworth, Penang.
On the third day of our Penang trip, we feel like we want to eat more laksa. So, we went to Ah Leong Laksa at Taman Melur, Butterworth, Penang.
After eating laksa, we spent our tea time with cute dessert at Gathers Cafe at Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang
For the last night of our Penang trip, we eat more local hawker food at Raja Uda Food Court @ Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang. This food court has many varieties of food to choose from.
On the way back to Petaling Jaya, we stopped at Taiping for the seafood porridge at Restaurant Light House Seafood at Matang, Taiping. The seafood porridge here is so awesome. By the way, this restaurant has opened a branch in Puchong. You can read about it here.
