We're heading to Penang for a long weekend break next month and just starting to research places to check out to eat. In past years we have done a lot of the streetside and market type hawker places and love to eat at these places. This time around though we have a 3 year old and a 6 month old so from a practical point of view we are probably looking for more family/children friendly places to eat at. We'll still visit the street vendors but probably choose to pick up takeaways to eat back in our hotel.
We're staying at the Hard Rock hotel in Batu Ferrenghi (again due to its family friendliness) but will most likely hire a car to visit sites and restaurants. Probably already on the list :
Hot Wok : Nonya / Dine in
Perut Rumah : Nonya / Dine in
Air Itam assam laksa : Laksa / Takeaway
Bangkok Rd Mee Goreng : Mee Goreng / Takeaway
Balik Pulau : Siam Laksa / Takeaway
Gurney Drive : BBQ Stingray / Takeaway
Lorong Selamat : Char Kway Teow / Takeaway
Any further advice appreciated! Anyone can recommend the best South Indian/banana leaf restaurant? Also Nasi Kandar?
