    Gurney drive, penang

    "Imagine a free-ranging buffet, several hundred square kilometers in area, through which to graze at will. This limitless cornucopia brings together some of the liveliest culinary traditions of Asia, and participation costs only a few dollars.

    Now lets be honest matey, the place covers half an acre at most.

    the liar

    This is suppossedly the place to go for street food, there are about 200 stalls there in the evening and why they advertise this place to tourists I have no idea, if there are 4 of you and you are all undecided on the meal then this place would be ok, to call it a tourist attraction is ridiculous, there is more than enough street food on Chulia Street.

    Penang Visa Run Page






    The only reason this place does well is due to all the Malays living near there.












    The Taxi there is like 12 ringit, the bus 1.40 ringit, I got the bus back, fok me we aint in a rush here

    I remember it being very pleasant there in the evenings, and the fresh fruit juices were bloody good too. For me the food in Malaysia is better than in Thailand - where else can you get good Chinese, Indian and Malay food all in the same place? Can't wait to go back one day.

    I lived in Malaysia for bout 4 years, didn't like it much except for the food, Terrific diversity of great food,and generally cheaper than here. I think Malaysia has possibly the best Asian food in the world. From Nonya to Penang Kway tei ow or Western, can't remember striking a dud Meal there, but have done so many times here. But in general its not a nice place to live, from a shackled press to the rude cvnts that are the taxi drivers there, I never really enjoyed my time while I resided there.

    I could in theory fly down there for a few days but I don't like rushing around too much - would prefer to take in S. Thailand and Penang in the same holiday. All this info is very good research though.

    Just don't bring Nena. I hate a bird who knows more about footy than I do. Grrrr!

    You will of course be meeting up with me to deliver the 'package'.

    Affirmative. A drop point and RV will be arranged, over

    Nena will be over with the ex and several others at the same time, but I probably won't be seeing much of her.

    I recommend that you leave the Euro totty at home and try the local cuisine again.

    BTW, you can post in some of the other threads too.
