Penang - Pulau Tikus
September 30, 2016 • Leave a Comment
In my previous blog, I talked about Trishaw drivers in George Town, Penang. There are so many things to talk about this fantastic place; one cannot ignore the food. The street food culture is thriving everywhere in Penang, Pulau Tikus is just one example. In the Malay language, "Pulau" means Island, "Tikus" means mouse, so put together it means Mouse Island, however, the this is not an island but a suburb named after Pulau Tikus, an island near north of Penang.
Pulau Tikus is also known for its wet market. The locals will have their breakfast and shop for grocery after. The price of the food is very affordable and very delicious. One can almost relax and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. It does not look like a tourist spot at all as most tourists would want to have their complimentary breakfast in the comfort of their air-conditioned hotel. However, if you are here for more than a few days, why not take a taxi or Uber to Pulau Tikus for breakfast and enjoy the real local flavour.
Upon returning to Melbourne, I have already missed the food in Penang. I will definitely go back to George Town again for the food, the atmosphere and the scenery.
