I had wanted to visit Penang for a while. Friends I know who are good cooks seem to hail from Penang or Malacca, the only two Peranakan cuisine hotspots in the country. Penang food has become a brand in its own right in recent years, with restaurants and eating places that market Penang food springing up in Singapore and I am sure, in different parts of the world. People go up to Penang for food tours. That was not my sole purpose but since I was going there, I may as well check out the food.
I was walking along Chulia street in search of lunch when I decided to stop by this coffee shop because the coffee shop had people in it and it was already after the office lunch hour. I ordered dried wanton mee.
This coffee shop is located at the corner of Caravon Street and Chulia Street.
