When you find yourself craving Penang fare, simply head to Jalan Kepong for authentic dishes that will satisfy. Come on an empty stomach and dive straight for the Char Kuey Teow (RM6.50) that sees wok hei-laden flat noodles stir-fried with prawns, cockles, crunchy bean sprouts and Chinese sausages. Another signature dish to look out for is the White Curry Mee (RM6.50), featuring pork blood curd, juicy cockles, cuttle fish and pork balls in a fragrant coconut milk-based broth. You can give your dish a flavour boost with a dollop of chilli paste. Also good is the Chee Cheong Fun (RM5) that comes doused in sweet sauce and a tangy chilli sauce.

Locals flock to this eatery for traditional kopitiam breakfasts in a comfortable space. Have the signature Kaya and Butter Toast (RM3.80), or fill up with Vietnamese Egg Set (RM8.80) featuring two sunny-side-ups with Chinese sausages and minced pork. Burppler Sok Chien Lim also recommends the addictive Nasi Lemak Fries (RM8.90) – crispy fries topped with a dollop of sweet-spicy sambal, ikan bilis, peanuts and a soft-boiled egg to crack and pour over the dish! Wash the meal down with the popular MK (RM4.50), a luscious coffee and chocolate combo.

Come for a meaty feast with friends over braised pork knuckles prepared in a century-old cooking method from Fujian that ensures a potent, collagen-rich sauce after 72 hours of braising. Order the delicious Drunken Pork Knuckle (from RM48) to share, and look forward to a show. The braised pork knuckle is served in a claypot and then doused in Chinese white wine and set ablaze. Pair that with a bowl of Pork Lard Rice (RM3.50).

Look to this no-frills joint along Jalan Helang Merah for delicious and authentic Thai grub to share. There are plenty of dishes to choose from, and you might want to ask the friendly team for recommendations. Don't miss the signature Otak-Otak (RM25). Unlike the typical banana leaf-wrapped variety, expect a young coconut stuffed with fish, prawns and squid coated in a spicy and thick red curry sauce. Also good is the juicy Pandan Chicken (RM20) and the fiery Seafood Tom Yum Goong (from RM20) — all best enjoyed with a bowl of white rice.

Despite its name, customers flock to this curry mee shop for its mouth-watering Curry Chee Cheong Fun (RM4.30). Silky noodles are drenched in mildly spicy curry and topped with braised mushroom and pork. There is also a non-spicy option — Chee Cheong Fun with Mushrooms and Pork (RM4.30) — with a savoury brown sauce instead of curry. Also worth a try is Ah Yee's rendition of Curry Mee (RM6), featuring char siew and lots of pork skin! Amp up your meal with a side order of Yong Tau Foo (RM1.20 per piece) to enjoy with your noodles.

Don't miss out on this cosy spot in Laman Rimbunan that is decorated to mimic the famous JiuFen Old Street in Taiwan. Start with something savoury like the classic Braised Pork Rice (RM9.90) or the Oyster MeeSua (RM10.50). On sides, we recommended the Signature Popcorn Chicken (RM7) doused in a spicy seasoning. Don't leave without trying the Traditional TaroBall Ice (from RM8.90) for dessert. Look forward to a generous scoop of shaved ice (choose from regular soy or black soy ice) served with chewy taro balls, pearls and red beans.

Located in Jinjang Selatan, this pocket-friendly bak kut teh store comes with high praise from the community – Burppler Brian Leow declares it's the best in Klang Valley. Go with his recommendation and order the Pork Knuckle (from RM25) that comes sitting in a flavourful herbal soup. Another must-have is the multi-layered Pork Intestines (from RM20), which Burppler Trisha Toh describes as "bouncy, odourless and easy to chew on." Pro tip: This restaurant splits their dining service into two sessions (4-8pm and 9.30pm-3am), so plan your meal accordingly!

Find this spacious cafe tucked in a showroom gallery along Jalan Kepong. Parking is easy, and there's plenty of space to pull out your laptop to get work done. Cosy up with the Dolce Mocha (RM12) for a sweet caffeine kick. For something stronger, opt for the Long Black (RM8) that'll keep you on your toes with its bold and fruity notes. Don't miss out on Posh's wide selection of sweet treats – from classic scones to delectable mille crepe cakes. We recommend the best-selling Tiramisu Mille Crepe (RM13) that sports a sexy assembly of thin layers of crepe and cream, and dusted with powdered cocoa.

Make a beeline for this popular local taichow haunt in Kepong Baru's wet market. Fun fact: The produce used in the dishes are sourced from their neighbours in the wet market, so rest assured that you're getting the freshest ingredients. Seafood's all the rage here and the sinful Butter Milk Curry Prawns (from RM100) is a must-have. While the crab prices are a bit steep (from RM100 a kg), Burppler Sok Chiek Lim guarantees they're super fresh! Complete your meal with the Signature Tofu (from RM40) and Pork Ribs with freshly made noodles (from RM20). P.S. Kick it up a notch and BYOB!

Bookmark this cosy spot for weekend family dinners over juicy pork burgers and scrumptious waffles. Go straight for the signature Chic-Pork Burger (RM16) that sees a juicy pork-chicken patty, American cheese, an egg and smoked chipotle mayo between two fluffy buns. Fried chicken fans should give the Crispy Chicken Burger (RM16) a try! Expect a freshly fried chicken thigh with crunchy skin and moist meat layered with a slice of American cheese and mayo. Finish off with something sweet like the Biscoff Waffle (RM18) that's great for sharing.
