Char Koay Teow is the top and most popular food which one must try when visiting Penang. There are also quite a number of Char Koay Teow stalls in Penang with each stall having their specialty sauce and ingredients. Liked by both locals and foreigners, Char Koay Teow is made from flat rice noodles, which are stir-fried over very high heat with soy sauce, chilli, and most often, with eggs and prawns too.
At this time of the year, the fruit farms at the hills and rainforests of Penang are once again teeming with durians, a popular and unique local fruit. Although the durian has a very strong scent, the fruit is actually very tasty for those who like it or can go pass the strong scent.
