Penang is an explor­er’s dream and a food-lover’s par­adise. It’s the nasi lemak or kaya toast eat­en for break­fast, served with a hot cup of kopi ​‘O’ (black cof­fee), at one of the city’s bustling food courts. It’s the reju­ve­na­tive lak­sa after a morn­ing’s sight-see­ing, fol­lowed by a cool­ing cen­dol in the after­noon heat. It’s the char kuey teow pre­pared in a flash at one of the many late-night hawk­er stalls, washed down with local beer.

Like the island itself, Penang Local cel­e­brates the tra­di­tion­al cui­sine that is cher­ished by locals and fer­vent­ly adored by vis­i­tors, while embrac­ing the mul­ti­cul­tur­al influ­ences that con­tin­ue to shape this vibrant and his­toric food scene. Penang Local is packed with deli­cious yet approach­able recipes, so you can recre­ate the mag­ic of Penang at home.
