If you love street art and street food, Penang is the destination for you. This little island off the coast of Malaysia has a plethora of amazing street art and delicious food for the foodie and art lover alike. In fact, I spent a whole weekend navigating my way around Penang’s capital, George Town from artwork to artwork (and street stall to street stall). As a massive fan of street art, it was the best way to explore the city.
It’s no secret that we are foodies. We love to cook food almost as much as we love to eat it. Tasting dishes around the world is one of the things we prioritise when we travel. From learning how to cook croquetas in Spain, to finding new dishes I’m inspired to learn to cook in our own kitchen, our passion for food and travel is synonymous and something that connects us to the destinations we’ve visited, not only abroad, but back home too. With that in mind, I couldn’t go to Malaysia, a country that has an amazing cuisine, without learning how to cook some of the delicious dishes there. This is where LaZat comes in.
Penang is known as the food capital of Malaysia, and it’s no wonder why. Every street in Georgetown, the most popular area of the island, is lined with restaurants, cafes and hawkers selling the most delicious dishes you can imagine. Forget all the temples on the island, eating is the true religion here, and one that all can follow wholeheartedly. Being the foodies that we are, we couldn’t visit Penang without doing a food tour of the street food capital. Junie from Food Tour Penang took us around to the best cafes, restaurants, eateries and markets, providing plenty of interesting commentary about Penang’s culture, history and food. (more…)
