|Penang Hawker Food at New Lane|

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.
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.
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.
