What to Eat in One Delicious Day on Penang Island


We wrote a guest post for Eat Your World about the great food we had in Penang, Malaysia. As some of you may remember, we weren’t even supposed to be on that side of the world at the time!

In Malaysia, Pulau Pinang, or Penang Island, is acclaimed for its diversity and high quality of food—a fact apparent when you’re strolling through the UNESCO World Heritage city of George Town, the island’s capital (and the country’s second-largest city, behind Kuala Lumpur).
