5. Qing Tian Char Siew @Chulia Street

Your trip to Penang would never be complete without trying the famous Penang Road Cendol (Our opinon!). Many celebrities had visited and tasted the cendol and also it has been aired to the television channels.
9. Pineapple Cakes of A Different Level at Gartien @ Lorong Macalister, Penang
Pineapples carry a deep meaning in the Penang Hokkien dialect – “Ong Lai”, meaning “Prosperity Comes”. Gartien serves handmade pineapple cakes which do not contain any preservatives and artificial coloring. The pairing of the right Chinese Tea with the pineapple cakes is definitely a perfect match!
We found this pineapple cakes to be awesome, not only through its freshness and real pineapple texture but also due to its versatility to be served during any occasion. Check out more HERE!
