New Lane is truly a street food center in Penang and the place is jam packed with many hawker food stalls and food hunters. Tables are set up in the open, even occupying part of a parking lot of an office complex. The lane is accessible from Macalister Road and Dato Kramat Road. You have to bring a big appetite as there are many delicious goodies at this place.

There are a few stalls that I usually patronized. I love the Grill Chicken located in the Sin Yin Nam coffee shop. The chicken wings and drumsticks are simply delicious. The aroma is so seductive that could drive you insane.


The Chee Cheong Fun (steamed flat rice roll) comes in different sauces depending on your preference. Sometimes I go for those served with Hae Ko (shrimp paste sauce) and chili paste, without the sweet sauce. At times I like to have it served in the curry soup with a fresh serving of pig blood and some taupok.


For the more adventurous do try out the Chu Chap Cheok (intestine porridge). You won’t miss this stall as it is near the entrance of the road and has long strings of char siew and pig’s innards hanging in front. The innards are clean thoroughly. The intestines are deep fried till crispy so much so one can eat on its own.

Besides the Chu Chap Cheok, we also had a bowl of duck porridge from another nearby stall. The duck porridge is relatively good with the flavorful brown ‘duck sauce’. The duck meat has a smoky aroma and is tender. The texture of the porridge is not those of the smooth type. It is grainy yet soft. The green chili sauce is hot and tangy, nice punch on the palate.


The Satay stall is not to be missed when you are here. It is my favorite place for this local delight. The richly marinated meat is grilled perfectly over charcoal, tender and moist served together with the tasteful peanut sauce.


I personally like to have dessert after a meal, and usually would end up having the apom. There are two types of Apom Manis. One comes with a soft centered with thin crispy edges while the other thick version has fillings of either sweet corn or sliced banana.

For those who have not visited New Lane, do drop by and check out the stalls. Its location right beside Macalister Road and Sunway Hotel makes it a popular place for visitors and the locals.
