The street stalls here open only in the evenings on Chulia Street - you won't miss them. The clientele's largely local Penangites, which attest to the quality of food there.
The 2 most famous stalls are the Wanton Noodles stall and the Curry Noodles stall (my fave). Other popular stalls included those offering "Lor Bak", "Sar Hor Fun"/"Yee Fu Mein", "Apam"; and Fishball Noodles.
The curry noodles served by the old man here was insanely popular - his version did not include pig's blood like most other curry noodles stalls in Penang. But the spices used gave his curry gravy a piquant flavor that's an absolute delight. His noodles - a mix of yellow Hokkien noodles and "bee hoon" rice noodles had the perfect texture. The curry noodles came with beansprouts, cockles, cuttlefish, shrimps and "taupok" (beancurd puffs). One of the best I'd ever tried anywhere!
