There’s lot of seafood restaurants around Penang island but to go for some more under radar places like this one, you need to be familiar with the place here.

This seafood restaurant hidden way behind the main road near to the airport. You need to drive over a small hill in order to reach here.

Once you reach the destination you will be greet by a beautiful view of the sea.

This place is famous among the Malay locals for their seafood.

In order to get your food, you need to pick you squids from the water tank and pass to them. Then ask to cook it in way you want to and they will prepare it for you. RM17.63+

This is a very small and under radar Malay burger stall serving the nearby housing area. It is not easy to find this stall hidden in between government housing apartments.

I got to know this stall because of their viral UFO burger, which is very unlike the usual burger we see. Instead of bun with meat in between, they make it like a waffle style so that the ingredients inside won’t come out like the usual burger.

So this is really easy to eat and you probably want to get more. RM5 (GCB)

Seeking shelter in the mall from the hot weather outside, you can head over to this place for some ice cream.

Offer around 10 different flavours so you could definitely found something you like.

The mint chocolate chip was somehow refreshing with lots of chocolate chip bites inside. RM10.20

If you are fancy for some authentic Nyonya kuih in Penang, Li Er at Pulau Tikus is where you should heading to. They make all their kuihs onsite everyday and open for bulk orders.

Of course beside getting their kuihs, they also sell some Nyonya food in the shop.

Served with butterfly pea rice, the curry chicken was delicious and lemak; accompanied with chap chai and egg. RM13.90


Just a few minutes drive from airport. This is perfect place to have your meal before going into the town area.

Serving fusion food with mostly Chinese cuisine. I enjoyed their fatty braised pork with beautiful egg on top. RM16.90


Every time coming to Penang. Nutmeg drink is always my first choice. With many restaurants like this who reinvent the way the drink can be.

Sadly for this, the fizz taste overwhelming than the nutmeg; but still refreshing to have it. RM7.90

Hidden behind a club house along Kelawai Road, Kafka is located at the back of Penang Flying Club.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. For their nasi lemak, it is only available every Wednesday from 11am onwards with limited servings. Each nasi lemak also comes with a small bowl of Black Glutinous Rice with Coconut Milk for RM24.90.

The rice was a bit dry, but the chicken was soft and juicy. The sambal sauce not really spicy and tasty.

This interesting bubble tea shop called Mew Cha in Gurney Paragon just opened last weekend, with the cat visuals around the shop. Even though their branding involved cat but you won’t find any real cats here.

They served fruit juice and tea. I ordered their dragon fruit which a bit disappointed due to lots of ice bites inside my drink. RM15.90
