1. Ippudo Ramen

Cr: @yunapng_

You’ve heard the news, Ippudo Ramen is now available in Gurney Plaza. Since its opening in July, the queue formed outside never stops. Everything, from their appetizers to ramen and drinks are nothing close to disappointment. By now you probably know how good the ramen is, rich, smooth and flavorful tonkotsu broth served with the choice of your noodle texture. The side dishes, are bomb. The pork bun, salmon roll, and salmon mentai rice are to die for. They too serve some of the best fried chicken in town.

 2. Ages Ago 很久以前

Kent Hunts Food

Not opened “ages ago,” the name is so catchy it stays in your mind and keeps replaying. One of the new things to eat in Gurney Plaza, Ages Ago serves only 3 mains, little side dishes, 1 dessert and a drink. It’s that simple, but don’t let that set you back. Their sesame chicken mee sua, the soup one in particular, is bomb. Warm, hearty broth paired together with mee sua is the perfect comfort food. Like what it says, it’s the taste down the memory lane. Their dessert, cold beancurd with gula melaka is a must-order as well. Smooth and with the right texture, drizzled with fragrant gula melaka and peanuts, perfect.

Cr: @liwei94

Want a simple hearty meal or craving for soup noodles? Go Noodle House then. As the name suggests, you eat and go. They have to types of soup bases, superior or spicy soup. The superior broth is to die for, thick , delicious with a hint of cooking wine. Go with the signature bursting meat ball, if not then other ingredients. Besides that, they also serve dark sauce pan mee which is surprisingly good. We suggest you to add an egg.

4. Kyochon 1991

Cr: @jaydendotcom

We don’t need much explanation of this korean fried chicken chain. Their korean fried chicken has something in it that are dangerously addictive. No we’re not talking about MSG, because they’re MSG free. It’s the marination, the flavors. Choose from soy garlic, spicy or honey chicken. Order the set for best value okay? Fried chicken with hot steamy rice are the best. Pss: Order the salsa chicken too, you wont be disappointed. We must say Kyochon is one of the best things to eat in Gurney Plaza.

5. Royaltea


If you’re a local and have no idea what is Royaltea, you’re truly missing out. Their signature cheese tea is what people raved about. Basically, it’s milk tea with a layer of cream cheese on top. Pick your drink, choose your tea, and have it either with cheese or no. If you’re a hardcore fan of cheese, add a slice of cheese on top of your cream cheese. Mind-blowing no? Tilt your glass 45 degrees for that perfect combination. They’ve now expanded their business to Gurney Plaza, you’re no longer bound to only three locations.

8. San Francisco Coffee


One of the new addition to the things to eat in Gurney Plaza, San Francisco took over the previous coffee chain, Doutor Coffee. Serving quality coffee at an affordable price, we tried it and it’s a thumbs up from us! The setting pulls out a sense of serenity with the blue and wood tones. The art on the wall resembles American vibe, which makes the store lively. Besides coffee, San Francisco also serves mains like sandwiches and pastas. The crowd has slowly noticed this coffee chain, it’s somehow packed during the weekend. We suggest to go during the weekday if you want a sense of peace.

9. Hoshino Coffee

Cr: @elysha.lee

A well-established restaurant in Japan, Hoshino Coffee has recently opened two new branches in Penang. First Queensbay Mall, then now Gurney Plaza. Since its opening, Hoshino Coffee has taken the town by storm. Apart from its popular Japanese coffee, Hoshino serves Japanese-Western inspired dishes. Skip the main, we’re focusing on their desserts. The french toast and souffle are both a pleasant to the eyes, and of course tummy. Fluffy-soft and eggy, the texture is just perfect. French toast paired with maple syrup is always fail-proof, not to mention topped with cream.

10. LIANG Sandwich Bar

Yes the ever famous LIANG sandwich bar has opened in Gurney Plaza! Your favourite idol Jay Chou is the ambassador of this sandwich. If he’s the face of LIANG, then you know the sandwich is something. Different from the bread type sandwich, LIANG sticks to the tradition. It uses Chinese scallion pancake as the base and you could order your choice of fillings. Though it has been launched for quite a bit now, still, expect to queue. Note: please double confirm with the cashier about your choice of sauce as they’re quiet forgetful due to the overwhelming crowd.
