Penang Travelogue – (Part 3): Gurney Drive Hawker Centre, Kimberly Food Street, Kopi and Toast @ Gat Lebuh Chuliah

Some advantages of staying at The Gurney Resort Hotel & Residence are the accessibility to shopping malls (Gurney Plaza & Gurney Paragon) and Gurney Drive Hawker Centre where there are galore of food options.

Gurney Drive Hawker Centre

The Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is currently situated at the northern end of Gurney Drive, just next to Gurney Plaza. It comes alive when evening beckons and transforms into a food paradise.

This hawker centre is quite similar to Singapore’s Newton Food Centre as it caters mainly to tourists. As such, do expect the food prices to be higher. However, it is a convenient location for visitors to try out delectable local fare without needing to travel too much. Some of the famous Penang food you can find here include wanton mee, fish meat noodles, lok-lok (as shown), prawn noodles, satay, char koay teow, rojak, seafood and many more.

Kimberly Food Street

Lebuh Kimberly is a popular food street in Penang. Having heard of many good reviews of the legendary Kway Chap at Restoran Kimberly, I thought I should give it a try.

I am not sure whether it is a culture for food vendors to use their hands to handle the food. I did feel uneasy when I witnessed that.

This bowl of Kway Chap comes with sliced duck meat, pig intestines, pig ear and pig tongue.

A taste of their signature dessert – Si Koh Soup (filled with ginko nuts, longan & lotus seeds).

Kopi & Toast @ Gat Lebuh Chuliah 

Kopi & Toast at Gat Lebuh Chuliah is a cosy café which serves simple breakfast for you to start the day. It is pretty near to the Weld Quay clan jetty and wall murals are also within the vicinity.

The toast was very much similar to what I had tried elsewhere though. What I like about this place is that it provides a good spot for you to rest while scouting for wall murals.
