This is a regular food hunting destinations for me whenever come to Penang. Many locals dining here from morning to nights, so you can assure the good quality and authentic Penang foods.

Reminded me of food scene in Singapore in the 80s. Food is cheap and savoury, although portion was a bit small. Worth trying are the fried doughsticks (you tiao), the horfun, ee mee, hokkien cha from a couple in their 50s.
