Fodor's Expert Review Gurney Drive Hawker Center
Some will argue that Gurney Drive is not the best hawker center in Penang (having an opinion on the best place to eat is a Malaysian pastime), but it's hard to deny that this is a prime spot to catch the sunset along the coast and to tuck into hawker fare. Stalls are set up one after the other, each specializing in a unique dish. Try the char kway teo (stir-fry flat rice noodles with whole prawns), popiah (fresh spring rolls), and Penang rojak (a tart fruit-and-vegetable salad mixed with crushed peanut and shrimp-paste sauce). All stalls are self-service, and plastic tables and stools are set up in the center for diners to claim as they wish.
