If you ever visit Penang, don't just be satisfied with visiting the usual touristy places and eating highly MSG hawkers food. Go local! Go off the beaten path! Go Balik Pulau, and try an authentic dish serve in a homely relaxing atmosphere with no bullshit attached! Yes, I'm talking about our national dish of Nasi Lemak! But not the type you buy for RM1 a packet with just rice and gravy and maybe a 1/8 of an egg. I'm talking about the real deal! What nyonya people actually eat at their home! With fish and prawns and major kick-ass sambal belacan! And you can truly experience that at a little place call Balik Pulau!
To get there, you can take bus 401 or 502 from Jetty or Komtar to KKTM Genting, or drive there. The ride there alone is worth it! From nostalgic narrow old roads, to highways and winding hill path, to the scenic kampung surroundings.
While you're there, don't forget to visit the surrounding fishing villages! And the beautiful beaches!
Note that a minimum order of 10 pax is required to make a reservation. Do call at least 3 days in advance.
