When it comes to street hawker food, Penang wins hands down. People have been talking much about how good food is in Penang, but many have forgotten than Penang is not just an island, it consists part of the peninsular that made up the state of Pulau Pinang.
Yes, there are plenty of good food in Penang, but there are some good food too in the Peninsular part of Penang, namely in Butterworth. Now I’m not gonna go through all the food one by one, but I am gonna share a particular makan place if you’re ever in Butterworth area.
I’m quite a big fan of Lok Lok because I get to cook and eat what I want and there are plenty of dipping sauces to choose from. If you’re ever in Butterworth for any reason, do visit Butterworth’s version of ‘Wai Sek Kai’ in Chai Leng Park. There’s a whole row of hawker stalls selling plenty of local delicacies and Lok Lok is one of them.
The stall we frequent is called Pantai Lok Lok and their pricing is quite reasonable. Now there’s no special soup but just a plain pot of boiling water, what makes it really good is the variety of dipping sauces – fried stuffs are really good and overall, the food is pretty fresh and place is well-kept too.
Now it’s pretty hard to tell you how good all these frozen foods are, but it’s definitely easy to say that Lok Lok here is way much cheaper than in Kuala Lumpur.
Now be careful when picking up your food. One can get carried away with the variety of food there. Don’t overdo it, take only what you can eat. Don’t waste food!
