A Tale of Two Food Courts

I think Penang has way more food courts than KL. Near where I was staying in Penang, there are two Food Courts just next to each other (you only need 2 minutes to walk from one food court to the other food court) and one night. we ate dinner at both of them.

Assam Laksa - MYR3.50 nett.

Fried Tilapia Fish Fillet (3 slices only) with tom yum mee hoon  - MYR6 nett.

6 pieces of Sweet Apom for MYR3 nett.

Char Kway Teow - I am not sure how much because I did not pay for this.

Food Court One is Pisa Corner Cafe

Char Kway Teow with duck egg - MYR5.50 nett - taste nicer than the previous CKT.

Food Court Two - You Yuan Fen Food Court with big ceiling fan.

    1. They are local food courts that's why tourists don't often go there.

  2. Wah, still can get a bowl of noodles for RM3.50 in Penang...so much cheaper than KL! Actually, I do like my char kway teow with lap cheong (like the KL ones) as it brings added fragrance but Penang-styled ones usually don't have that ingredient.

  5. Huh? Where the heck is You Yuan Fen?? Sh*t!! I stay in this area for so long and yet you went to a food court that I do not even know of!

    Pisa Corner is a rather popular food court in this area, always parking full and tables full if you are slightly late on a working day lunch and dinner time. Next time you come here again, try their roasted pork (sio bak). They serve by carving one whole pork on site. It is pretty good!

    1. It is just next to Pisa Corner. You won't miss it if you go to Pisa Corner now. I think You Yuan Fen is quite new.

  9. I always thought that KL has more food courts because Klang Valley's areas are bigger by many folds. Most food courts here are often isolated or run by other races.
