Greetings, everyone! Hands down, Penang has one of the best food scene in the world. Not to worry, this statement is not self-proclaimed. For the past few years, the state has been internationally awarded for its culinary scene. After years of operations without a food hall, Gurney Plaza finally has a food hall. Unsurprisingly, the impressive food hall really delivered with the best local and international cuisine.
Probably The Most ‘Gram-Worthy Food Court In Penang
The upscale food hall is probably one of the most ‘gram-worthy food court in Penang. The large food hall is brilliantly broken down into four zones. Each zone represents an important landmark in Penang. Inspired by Free Industrial Hub, The Port is decorated with rustic and nautical elements. Penang’s natural wonders are beautifully translated at The Palm with greeneries all around.
Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without The Pier, the first point for merchants and travelers to Penang. Lastly, check out The Patio. Located at the end of Gurney Food Hall, the decor looks similar to the Eastern & Oriental Hotel, with tiled floorings and rustic furniture. Surprisingly, it has a good amount of ‘sunshine’ from the lightings, too! Head down here for a quieter meal away from the crowd.
Houses Local Favourites & Unique International Cuisines
Strategically located on the 4th floor on the main wing of Gurney Plaza, Gurney Food Hall is the latest go-to food court to satiate all your cravings. With more than 25 outlets, there is bound to be something for everyone. Find local favourites and unique international cuisines that guarantees to tickle your tastebuds! Some of these food outlets are notable among Penangites, while others are new to the food scene.
Crowd Favourites Such As Shawerma Rice & Dry Chilli Pan Mee
Step right into Gurney Food Hall to spot the first crowd favourite, Mr. Shawerma. This spot is iconic for its packed chicken meat on the shawarma machine. Order yourself a plate of Shawerma Rice and watch them skilfully slice some chicken meat. Next up, no food hall is complete without a long queue at Uncle Kin’G. Signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee is well-loved among Penangites.
Pork-Free Version Of Sin Nam Huat
A pork-free version of Sin Nam Huat is also available here. Modernly named as The Roasted C., this spot surely has the same finesse as Sin Nam Huat. The well-curated menu comprises roasted chicken and duck, with side dishes such as chai boey and braised egg as pairings. Craving for Hainanese chicken rice instead? Check out Triple Star Hainanese Chicken Rice to get your Sliced Chicken Horfun Soup cravings fixed.
New Treats Including Mantis Prawn Hokkien Mee
Additionally, head down to Penang Hong Zai to taste Mantis Prawn Hokkien Mee, Thailander for Green Curry Chicken Rice and Mango Sticky Rice, and Tamarind Tomyam for some Nasi Goreng Pattaya. Apart from these exciting new treats, as many as six new restaurants will be opening in Gurney Food Hall, too! Don’t miss out on Kyrin Sushi, Teochew Chendol, and 888 Canteen.
