1. Lily Ice Kacang | No. 23, Penang Hill Cafe, 11300 Penang, Malaysia

Mondays – Fridays: 11 AM – 8 PM | Saturdays & Sundays: 8 AM – 8 PM

Muslim-friendly

If you’re heading to Lily Ice Kacang and not sure what to order, we’d recommend going for Mango Ice and Strawberry Chocolate Ice! The Mango Ice is loaded with fresh mango cubes and drenched with fresh mango juice, posting a fair balance of sweet and sour taste. Strawberry Chocolate Ice is drenched with strawberry juice and embellished with strawberries and cream, we truly enjoyed it! Both will look extremely good on your ‘gram too!

2. Lebuh Cintra Koay Teow Thng | 44, 34, Lebuh Cintra, Georgetown, 10200 George Town, Penang

7 AM – 10:30 AM | Closes on Tuesday

Non-Halal

A hearty bowl of Penang’s classic Koay Teow Thng served by two uncles in the morning. What we love about Lebuh Cintra’s Koay Teow Thng is its smooth velvety rice cake strips and warm broth packed with rich flavours. Humbly set up at the side of a road, this stall is frequently patronised by loyal customers, who are mostly, if not all, local Penangites. Expect to share a table as the place is always full.

3. Kedai Kopi BoboG-23, 2, Lengkok Nipah, Taman Lip Sin, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Pulau Pinang

8 AM – 2 PM | Opens Daily

Non-Halal

Their signature drink here is the “Tutu Peng”, it’s a combination of local coffee, nestum & milo. It’s a rare drink to be found in Penang. Not only is the drink unique but the presentation of this seemingly rare drink is also one-of-a-kind. They used to serve it in a condensed milk can but has since opted for a plastic cup that looks like a milk can, with the coffee shop’s name and owner imprinted on it. Head over to this coffee shop and try out this delicious drink today!

If you have an insurmountable craving for authentic Hong Kong food such as curry fish balls and fragrant milk tea, you’re in luck. HK Boy Cart Noodle Penang has opened a second branch in the heart of Georgetown, specifically along Beach Street.This place is always crowded with office workers, with a lot of choices on the menu. Also, this place has a high cp (cost-performance) value, it has valuable and reasonable written all over it.

5. Hong La Jiao Steamboat | 190, Jalan Burma, George Town, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang

6 PM – 5 AM | Opens Daily

Non-Halal

Hong La Jiao is a good place for spicy steamboat. The restaurant has a lot of ingredients, and my personal favourite is lamb slices. It is delicious! In addition, you get to mix your own sauces, and it is really fun to experiment. The place is beautifully decorated, and I would recommend people to make reservations before going ‘cause it can be very packed at times.

6. Kedai Kopi New Cathay | 425, Jalan Burma, George Town, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang

7 AM – 2.30 PM | Closes on Sunday

Non-Halal

Among the many eats that you can find in Kedai Kopi New Cathay include Hokkien Mee, Wan Tan Mee and many more. The Top 3 must order food at New Cathay is definitely the Curry Mee. It is my favourite because its curry broth is fragrant and has a thick curry consistency with coconut milk. The main reason this is my favourite pick is that you can opt to add your favourite additional ingredients to get a bowl of hearty Curry Mee, with your own personal twist.

7. Joies Cafe 1st floor, 32, Jalan Moulmein, 10350, Pulau Tikus, George Town, Pulau Pinang. 

9 AM – 9 PM | Closes on Thursday

Muslim-friendly

This cake called the Blue Surf Tofu Cheesecake is indeed as one-of-a-kind as its name. Made with a texture that is similar to tofu cheesecake, it is so soft that upon the first bite, it melts in your mouth. Also, this no-bake cake has lower sugar content so health-enthusiasts can savour this cake with no feelings of guilt. The best part has got to be its vegan ingredients.

8. Gao Enough | 16, The WhiteAways Arcade, Beach St, Georgetown, George Town, Penang

7 AM – 10:30 AM | Closes on Tuesday

Non-Halal

Unlike the renowned, international bubble tea joints that have mushroomed in Malaysia, Gao Enough has humbly begun their journey in the island of Penang. Established less than a month ago, this thirst-quencher drink has cute packaging; resembling a vintage soda can. Also, this specific milk tea, known as Hamsup tea has a combination of saltiness and sweetness in it. It’s definitely no easy task to find a cup of milk tea that stands out among its other competitors.

9. Jian Jian Vegetarian Food | 58, Lebuh Tye Sin, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang

7 AM – 10:30 AM | Closes on Tuesday

Non-Halal

When you think of Vegetarian eatery, you may probably be in doubt about its taste. However, over in Jian Jian Vegetarian, you’ll sign yourselves up for Penang delights that taste as good as the authentic ones. One particular eat that deserves recognition is the Vegetarian Ho Chien here. Its taste is flavourful and the portion is guaranteed to leave patrons satisfied. The homemade chilli sauce here has a sweet taste to it which complements really well with the fried oyster.

10. Wholey Wonder 61, Jalan Gurdwara, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang

12 PM – 9 PM | Closes on Monday

Muslim-friendly

The Wholey Pizza here is indeed a holy wonder! You won’t feel like you’re eating vegetarian food upon the very first bite of this pizza. Crispy crusted pizza with tomato base and roasted greens; zucchini and tomatoes: truly a heaven for all vegetarian! If you’re not a fan of tomato-based pizza, you can also go ahead and order the pesto based pizza. It’s without a doubt that Wholey Wonder does vegetarian the best way anyone could ever possibly expect.
