    The "lok lok" looks good but I never get to try it. Each time I'm there, I'd have two plates of the each-bite-is-a-heavenly-sensation charkeowtiau...that is a must! Good things come in pairs !! Then comes the ABC which is another must-eat. Then some banana pancakes! Stomach no more space for 'lok lok' already liao !! Oh wait! Did I mention laksa?!!

    Me thinks you're referring to the ban chang kuih pancake, is this the type?

    I saw this crispy ban chian kuih in Seri Petaling pasar malam. Most likely the pasar malam in Subang should have.

    For Padang Brown, the cher hoo (green fish) which is the chinese version of pasembor is famous, as its popiah, ckt and yong tau fu.

    At Cathy coffee shop, the hokkien char, curry mee and apom is good.

    In Penang, there are many versions of apom, the one here is different from the one at Burmah Rd selling in the afternoons. http://lifeislikethat.com/?p=2994; http://urbancrate.com/food/apong-apam-apom/

    A few doors away from Pinang Peranakan Mansion.

    I thought someone just said Penang food has no more credo because its available EVERYWHERE ELSE... Why bother to come to Penang if it taste better elsewhere...

    I am not a native of Penang although I chose to settle down here. my wife is a Penang-lang! To me, when she asked me to sell the house in USJ and come to Penang for "early retirement" it was an easy decision because I love Penang food, simple as that... I practically drive around EVERYDAY looking for the food I yearn for lunch on that day... I go as far as Batu Lanchang for kuay chap, for chye kuay... Air itam also for their kuay chap... Back to Lorong Seratus Tahun for Char Kuay Teow or then shot to New Lane for Chee Chap Choke or just simply Wan Ton Mee and then off to Chulia St for my beef noodles....

    Sometime itchy backside nothing to do drive across to Butterworth and eat roti jala or ban chan kuay...

    I have never regretted coming to retire in Penang. Anybody come here, gimme a shout, I am willing to escort you coz it is an excuse for me to indulge too..

    Last check-up, both cholestrol levels still OK dokey... Can eat summore...

    I was wrong about Penang foods, as always I could be wrong and as a food lover, I'm so glad that you guys proof me wrong! With all the mouth watering list of unique foods like Kauy Chap, Rotibabi, Banana pancake...etc, I'm so looking forward to my next visit to Penang.

    I was wrong, I'm sorry. I admit my mistake and I apology. Something that my two year+ daughter knew what to do. Only hypocrite and man without balls find it so hard to admit their mistakes and apology.

    Perhaps that is your "way" of getting people to tell you what you want to know ... ? Challenge them to prove to you that Penang got good food by saying otherwise? And then you get a list of good makan places as the Penangites go on the defense of their state ? Afraid that no-one will tell you if you ask ? I think you call this method (or maybe it is a habit ) - "provoking thoughts" ?

    If you are looking for food recommendations, just go to Cari Makan forum and ask properly ... don't have to pass "slight" remarks on Penang food or the state like in your first post to get people to respond (see your own post below).

    However I find that Penang foods loose it uniqueness due to the fact that you can have Penang foods in almost every state in Malaysia now. Some even find that Penang foods in their own local town is even taste better. Compare to Melaka, we still can find unique foods only available in Melaka (or they just taste better in Melaka) like Chicken Rice Balls, Satay Celup, Cendol and Portoguese foods...etc
