Travel & Food Trip in Georgetown @ Penang Island

After a short vacation to the wonderful historical city of Georgetown on the Penang island, I was amazed with their extensive food culture which covers alot of local Malaysian delights. Its a good place  as food is cheap, places are easier to venture upon and walk-friendly destinations to visit. Here is a short food hunting summary I gathered. Enjoy :D !    

Gurney Drive
Gurney Drive is one of the local attractions and has a superb sea view promenade. Here, you can find many food stalls accumulating in an open air food court where you can find almost anything ! Prices here are more expensive than other places as it is a tourist hotspot.
