Tasting Penang's Finest

Experience Penang's cultural diversity at an energetic food court, where you can have a taste of local life, order native specialty dishes, and shop for novelty ingredients to bring home. This guided Penang tour is ideal for food-lovers or anyone looking for a taste of Malaysia's flavorful lifestyle.

Your tour begins when your professional guide takes you to the New World Park, a spirited food court full of enthusiastic local vendors. These vendors, known as "hawkers," cook in small stalls surrounding the central seating area. From there, you have the option to visit any stall and purchase food. Dishes are delivered straight to your table after being freshly prepared, and this is when you pay for your order. Local specialties include Bakkutteh (pork soup seasoned with herbs), curry noodles, Chinese dumplings, and an assorted blend of Indian, Malay, Thai, and Chinese flavors. While at the center, you'll be able to browse the available spices, herbs, and special sauces to bring home. Residents of Penang are notorious for eating around the clock. You'll discover why on this savory guided tour.
