Join me as we visit a local neighbourhood market, away from the tourist crowds. Experience living like a local for the next 2 hours as we weave our way through the bustling crowds, tasting delicious food, understanding Penang's multi-culture and history. Allow me to share with you stories and shops which you might otherwise miss while travelling by yourself. Touch and smell the fresh ingredients which we often use in our dishes and taste them through the wide variety of popular breakfast snacks, fruits and drinks the local market has to offer.
Being brought up by my grandmother who is a nyonya has definately sparked the curiosity and passion for food and cooking in me. Knowing where your food comes from is very important. A person once said: "Being part of the process helps you to respect the food served on the table a little better" and I totally agree with. Join me for a morning as we savour and explore through the busy alleys in my neighbourhood market, engaging with the local street vendors and understanding Penang through her diverse food and drinks. Skip your hotel breakfast and have a meal with me!
Seasonal and Tropical fruits. Popular breakfast snacks that represent our diversity of cultures

A comfortable and easy tour by foot. This area is out of the heritage core so you are able to immerse yourself, living like a local for the morning. A little tip about this neighbourhood - There is a road named after Penang first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman as he chose this neighbourhood as his retiring home. You will find yourself fiting in comfortably among the locals which might very well be the highlight of your travel in Penang!
Skip your hotel meals and join me for breakfast/brunch. Be curious, be excited, ask many questions and be open to try new taste, textures and smells!
