5. Qing Tian Char Siew @Chulia Street

food in georgetown
We agreed that it’s extremely tough, if not impossible, to find better Char Siew (Roasted Pork) in Penang. It’s a little sweet, aromatic and just pure awesome! They do serve roasted chicken and duck with rice as well! Check out this review from KenHuntsFood about it!

6. Pik Nik @ Nagore Road, Penang
food in georgetown
A cafe that feels like home with cozy ambience, comfy colourful sofas and big cushions, great nik nacks, old photos, rocking chairs etc.

One of the must try signature dishes (Our opinion!) would be the Waffle Salmon. The soft and fluffy scrambled egg blended very well with the special aroma from the smoked salmon on the crispy waffle.
Definitely a fun and comfy place to chill out with friends and family. Check out their food and drinks menu HERE!

7. Kissa Koyotei @ Hutton Lane, Penang

Finding a Japanese restaurant in Penang is not tough at all, but finding one with with unique features is not easy at all. Kissa Koyotei, the so-called Maid Cafe which has all their waitresses dress as maid serves good sushi and ponderous Japanese set.

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!

*UPDATE: You may have noticed by now why aren’t we highlighting any hawker food like the famous Char Koay Teow, Laksa etc in this list.
