Assam Laksa is a no stranger to Penangites as it is probably the most popular hawker food other than Char Koay Teow.

Traditionally, Nasi Lemak is Malaysian’s famous breakfast enjoyed by all races. It can be found as triangle-shaped packages in coffee shop or roadside stalls. It is also not a stranger in some chain restaurants in which the coconut milk-infused fragrant rice dish is included as one of the menu items.
