No trip to Penang is complete without trying all its trademark dishes so prepare your stomach to have them all at the 'Penang Food Fest'

Every state has dishes that they're known for, and specific stalls that are popular for being the best-of-the-best. Penang is no exception and Gamuda Cove has ensured that you'll be able to try these authentic Penang delicacies, right from the famous stalls.

Here's what'll be available:

  • Burma Road Char Kuey Teow - Fried over a traditional charcoal fire, you can choose between the chicken or duck egg options, both of which are super yummy.
  • Penang Road Famous Asam Laksa - The laksa from here is known for still having tender chunks of fish meat in the tasty laksa broth.
  • Penang Road Famous Cendol - Dating back to 1936, this iconic cendol has been a Penang favourite for years. Durian and white coffee versions are available too.
  • Ah Soon Kor Hokkien Mee - You'll be slurping up every last drop of the rich broth, packed with delicious flavour of fresh prawns. 
  • Ah Soon Kor Loh Mee - Don't forget to add on extra ingredients like mantis shrimps, pork ribs, roasted pork, and more.
  • Lorong Seratus Tahun Curry Mee - The best part is the awesome chilli paste that's served separately. It adds a fiery kick to the dish, making it super syok.
  • Ah Soon Fried Oyster - Filled with plenty of plump, succulent oysters and fried with plenty of wok hei.

With the pop-up photoboards featuring iconic Penang locations and street art backdrops scattered throughout the event location, you'll want to snap as many photos as possible
