    What to Expect
    Visit: Wonderfood Museum Penang, 49 Lebuh Pantai Near to Jettynext to CIMB Bank, George Town, Penang Island 10300 Malaysia

    Penang Wonderfood Museum offers visitors a kitsch, kooky and in-depth look at the city’s unique food culture with larger-than-life displays of Malaysian dishes. Set within a 1940s colonial building in Georgetown, the museum is divided into three galleries called Info Zone, Wow Zone, and Educational Zone. All of the hyper-realistic models are handcrafted by the museum’s owner, Sean Lao who utilises food replication techniques from Japan.

    The main section showcases over 100 types of popular street foods and traditional delicacies of the Malays, Indians, Chinese, and Perakanan, all of which are displayed in individual glass cases. Info Zone also features miniature displays of how the locals eat on a typical day, including breakfast at a roadside nasi lemak stall, Chinese-style porridge for lunch, followed by roti canai and teh tarik at a mamak stall.

    This place showcases the many different food among the 3 races in Malaysia. You can view a lot of the dishes in large sizes. The art work is also amazing. Good to check out to pass the time.
