Gurney Drive Food Stalls, Penang

Penang , Malaysia's insider take:

The best Malaysian food is not found in restaurants but on the street. Penang is famous for its food stalls, and those on Gurney Drive are exceptional. The stalls are toward the water just down from the intersection with Jalan and Kelawai, where dozens of vendors hawk Chinese, Indian, and Malay dishes. You don't need to speak the language—just stroll along snacking on whatever smells and looks good. The treats offered include the laksa (fish soup with noodles) that is a Penang specialty, oh chien (oyster omelet with chili dip), and char koay teow (a tasty dish of fried flat noodles and seafood).
