Imagine two rows of hawkers food and coffeeshops, with all the food Penang is famous for. Many of these foods are the best around the island. That is New Lane, off Macalister Road, where Sunway hotel is.
The hawkers operate from around 5-6pm and open till late night. You can choose to sit in the comforts of coffeeshop or dine like Penangites do. By the drain, next to the busy road. However, you need to fight for your seats! And endure some beggars who pass by.
Almost all the foods there are nice. Favourites of mine are:
1) Tau Kua chien – which is soft beancurds fried and dip in a special sauce.
2) Chee Cheong Fun
3) Thong Sui
4) Chee Cheong Chook
More from New Lane, next time.
