Penang Lang, if there’s one thing we can confirm, it’s most definitely the fact that our island has the best food. Right? Although time and time again, we may have been missed out but oh well, recognition isn’t that important so long as we know we’re the best right? If you think otherwise, then we’re here to let you know that Penang has been recognized by Korea’s #1 food taster, Baek Jong-won (白种元)! Hooray! Now it’s finally time for us to shine.
Baek Jong-won’s Delicious Food Adventure In Penang
So, Baek Jong-won is a South Korean chef who also hosts his own cooking TV series on SBS. This is how we know he’s someone major. Baek Jong-won recently paid a visit over to Penang island to document an episode for his TV show ‘Street Food Fighter 2’. In this episode, our Penang flag is seen to be flying high, together with a few drone shots of Penang island. SO BEAUTIFUL.
