Recommended. Freshly cooked octopus. Springy and curly. Nicely done. They also sell Laksa and cuttlefish kangkung. Laksa taste exceptionally good. First time try and fell in love. As for the cuttlefish kangkung, the crunchiness of the morning glory another word for kangkung and the softeness...of the cuttlefish just amazing. We are really satisfied.More

The street food here is excellent as are those from the corner coffee shop in front. Eating on the street in the open air is nostalgic for some of us who come from a more developed country. Visit from 5pm onwards. Look for the kueh...dadar, chee cheong fun and many more yummy food. I enjoyed the fried kway teow from the corner shop so much there we went back daily. The young lady operates from 7.30am- 3pm.More

Went there for dinner. Queue for the charcoal char kway teow was very long. Tried a few other stalls instead. The beef noodle and wonton noodle stall was ok. Price reasonable. The grill fish stall was very expensive. RM48 for a small grill stingray. Thin...and dry meat. Probably charged tourist price. May be better off going to other night food stall market.More

The outdoor dessert and drinks stall closest to the main road scammed us. They sold Chendol, ice Kacang, fresh coconut, etc Drink was $5.50 and I gave the proprietress $5 and said wait a minute I have 50 cents. I also had a 10 ringgit...bill in my hand. The lady said give me the $10 and I’ll give you $5 change. I said that was my $5 that I already gave you! She smiled and said no, give me the $10. She repeated this and again I insisted no. My husband said to me, she’s cheating us. Just give her the $10 otherwise she could cause a scene. It’s equivalent to US $1.50 so I reluctantly let it go but it left a sour taste. Other food stalls were good but I’ll never go back again.More

Enjoyed the char kway teow and the wan ton mee the best. The car kway teow was an experience as the hawker was frying plate by plate to serve up piping hot kway teow. What makes it aromatic is the fact that he uses charcoal...in his cooking which gives it that extra " charcoal taste". Expensive though. For hawker food. 8 bucks for a basic small plate and 10 bucks for a basic large plate. No frills. Be prepared to pay more if you want the works like cockels , duck eggs, sausage, etc.More

We ordered from a few stalls on a rainy evening so it was a little hard to move around. Overall we recommend the seafood char koay teow at rm17 (we took duck egg and added crab meat). It's not something you get to eat elsewhere....We tried the grill fish which is priced at rm45, expensive for penang standard. The lor bak was kind of so so and didn't live up to expectations. The koay teow teng was very ordinary.More

Though people said this place is meant for tourists- i.e. expensive but for us it is the best place. 1. Very close to our hotel (hotel sunway) - basically 2 min by foot. 2. No problem getting a table - we tried 1 night to...Presgrave Hawkers Center but it was so crowded and no table and we have a 85+ y.o. lady with us, so we turned back to New Lane. 3. Taste is authentic- well, price could be 50 cents higher than another location but the taste is outstanding and you have all Penang speciality in one location.More

Having lived in Malaysia for 10 years this has got to rank among one of the worse Hawker streets I have visited. The food we had was bad to ok, the Cendol was watery with no Coconut and the Beer was warm also. This maybe...acceptable to some people but if you come from Ipoh its just not acceptable quality and value so just give it a miss. Finally if you walk up in the daylight you will also see how filthy the street is.More

Every evening hawker's stalls start lining one stretch of the lane all the way to the Jalan Macalister junction. Tables are set up in the open, even occupying part of a parking lot of an office complex. The lane is accessible from Macalister Road and...Dato Kramat Road. All in there are about 30 plus wheel stalls and ten permanent hawker's stalls operating from the coffee shops in the vicinity and substantial variety of street food to choose from. It would not be exaggerating to say that every type of Penang street's food you can think of, you can find it right here. You have to bring a big appetite as there are many delicious goodies at this place. Expect to sit on colourful plastic tables and chairs on the roadside. We started off with the Sambal Sotong (Stir Fried squid / octopus) from a vendor who was managing the crowed very nicely. The stir fried octopus and accompany dip are simply delicious. The aroma is so seductive that could drive anyone insane. A feast for the eyes and the stomach — picture compressed stir fried octopus with a spicy chili dip and topped with spicy dried shrimp chili garnish. Next look out for the stall that sells Fried Surimi Crab and Fish. We had a plate of mixed crispy deep fried crab sticks and fish. The deep fried crab sticks and fish are relatively more crispy and crunchy than stir fried octopus. The tender melt in mouth crab meat has a smoky aroma. The texture of tempura batter fish fillets are grainy yet soft. The flavorful brown chili sauce is hot and tangy, gives a nice punch on the palate. The Satay stall at corner of the road is not to be missed. The richly marinated meat is grilled perfectly over charcoal till it become tender and smoky then served with the tasteful peanut sauce. Try out their both Chicken Satay and Pork Satay accompanied with an addictive spicy dip. For a sweet ending must-try Cendol that is served in a tall glass, with rice flour jelly, cream corn and kidney beans that give a welcome crunch to the silky smooth coconut milk and palm sugar syrup. Complete the meal with a fresh green apple juice.More

It is the best cafe with street food combination on our Malaysia trip. Is it aka Makeshift hawker centre. Fast pace, dizzying dishes coming non stop and since we all paying cash, at the end we do not even know how much was the total....But one thing for sure, most of them are extremely cheap except grilled stingray. Chicken wings are the best and so also is Char Koay Teow - famous for cooked over charcoal. Those two are must try there. We also tried Hokkien mee (Penang variant), Curry mee, satay, sticky rice roll, fried rice and pork belly all good. Probably you might want to try stingray as well - I can guarantee you, it will be at least 2-3 times more expensive in Singapore and will not be as half good as here. I like the structure of cool arrangement of street food all across Malaysia. Cafe itself sells white coffee, tea and cold drinks. Cafe rent spaces around to food carts to sell various snacks to complete meals. But in this place, there are many food carts selling excellent food as above. It is rare to get such a place where are cylinders "firing" to get a great dining experience.More
