   Penang is arguably most well known for its street food – so much so that it was recently voted one of the top food destinations by New York Times readers. Accolade indeed.

   Locally known as “hawker food” because it was traditionally prepared and sold by vendors who roamed the streets shouting out their wares, there is a huge variety from noodles to rice originated by the different races which make up Penang’s rich culture. However, we have more than that: we have both street food and home-cooked food, all equally popular with young and old, locals and visitors alike.

   Browse through the Penang food section for simple introductions to some of our most popular Penang cuisines and dishes

(Please be patient as we contribute more information onto VisitPenang to serve you better. Thank you.)
