If there's no time for a road trip, set your sights on O & S for true blue Penang delights. Penang locals who live in KL swear by this nondescript chee cheong fun stall that doles out a gloriously simple rendition of the dish. The Chee Cheong Fun (from RM2.40) presents soft, smooth rice rolls doused in a rousing prawn paste sauce, topped with sesame seeds and fried shallots. For sides, spot the stall for tasty Yong Tau Foo (from RM1.20 per piece) by its surefire queues. The same lot also houses a stall for stellar Asam Laksa (RM5), Prawn Mee (RM5.50) and Albert Thum's Beef Noodles (RM8), all of which pay homage to their northern roots. Open early at the break of dawn, the coffeeshop's buzz lasts even after lunch. Expect a short but worthy wait!
Avg price per person: RM10
