Life’s tough, let’s close one eye and put calories counter aside and live a little dangerously.
1. Abu Mamak
Ask any Penangite what Abu Mamak is famous for and you likely to hear “the boss is super friendly”. The real magic happens when you are paying the bill. I suppose the boss called Abu and I always enjoy watching him counting how much my food cost.
If the boss like you, minor discount will be given too! Isn’t it a great thing? So, if you’re hungry late night but don’t know where to eat, think Abu Mamak!

2. Pos Laju Burger
Pos Laju Burger is one of my burger in town! Which one should I order? Try the “Papa’s Special”. Trust me, it’s awesomely tasty. The burger’s meat is yummy and juicy matches perfectly with its delicious topping such as potato salad.
Be prepared for long queue though. Well, fret not, enjoy a cup of teh tarik and chit-chating with your friends while waiting.

Address: Air Itam Wet Market,, Jalan Pasar, Pekan Ayer Itam, 11500 Air Itam, Penang, Malaysia
4. Jiao Sai Maggi Goreng
Jiao Sai literally means “bird shit” in hokkien because pigeons’ droppings were everywhere around their old location. Don’t let it turns you off my friends. They’ve moved and now located at Jalan Abu Siti.
Jiao Sia is the famous supper spots for Penangites. A great place to hang out at night when the pub closes but you don’t want to go home just yet.
Address: 702 G3, Jalan Abu Siti, 10050 Jelutong, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
5. Deen Maju Nasi Kandar

Address: 598-D, Jalan Jelutong, Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia
6. Nasi Kandar @ Wah Meng Cafe
This gem is Air Itam’s best kept secret. When the clock strikes at around 2AM, you can easily spot enthusiastic nasi kandar lover queuing in front of Wah Meng Cafe.
Anyone of you love this nasi kandar too? Show some love please!

Address: Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, 11900, Bayan Lepas Penang
9. La Mei Zi Steamboat

10. Permata Claypot
Permata Claypot is one of the legendary claypot noodle seller in Paya Terubong. It’s also known as 珍珠粉 in Chinese. This stall don’t have proper operating hour and the boss only open when he’s happy.
Pro tip: always call first if you want to try it. If they don’t open, try again tomorrow. That’s pretty much what we can do.
Address: 1 Lintang Paya Terubong 5 11060 Paya Terubong, Pulau Pinang

Address: 6, Lorong Kekabu 2, Taman Desa Wangsa, 11960 Batu Maung, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
14. Green House Hokkien Mee
They offer one of the best Hokkien Mee in Penang. You can add extra toppings to the noodle. I like to have extra Roasted Pork and Egg to be added into the noodle.
Address: Jalan Burma 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang
15. Old Green House Kopitiam
While it was the famous prawn mee that drew us and made us try this place, it was the steamed chicken and bah kut teh that blew us away. We personally do not like the famous prawn mee here, as it’s over priced and not delicious as before.
Must try dishes are bah kut teh and steamed chicken with porridge.
Address: 223, Jalan Burma, George Town, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
16. Raja Uda Tom Yum
If you prefer your tom yum is in sweet and sour taste rather than spicy, give Raja Uda Tom Yum a go.

A delicious mess that comes laden with wok-hei and flavoured with soy sauce and pork lard.
