The only way to get to know George Town, on Penang Island is to walk our streets and eat our local food along the way. We’ve brought along international chefs, food bloggers, wanderlusters and more types of hungry travellers on our special routes. I landed on this crazy loveable island almost 10 years ago while publishing the annual guide Time Out Penang. I am still in love with the island, and you will fall for her too when you’re on my tours.
I have handpicked my street food vendors for the quality, the consistency in their food, and their quirky personalities. They are my heroes because they work hard day in and day out, yet always make the time for cheerful greetings! Except for the screaming sisters juice vendors, they are especially fun to watch and capture on videos.

The streets of George Town are filled with old and new buildings, art, food, people, and most of all history and culture. We have a great community of people on our island, we are fiercely proud of our food and how we came to be. A great way to find out what makes us tick is through our food.
