Din­ner­time Pan mee; Aki


Nes­tled in­con­spic­u­ously in a quiet neigh­bour­hood just a few kilo­me­tres away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Queens­bay Mall is a food court that is more than worth the drive down south. Su­per Tanker scores high on nearly ev­ery foodie rat­ings test you could give it. Are you look­ing for a va­ri­ety of food? This food court has it all, from herbal soups to pasem­bur to Thai food and be­yond – not to men­tion a Western-style bak­ery com­plete with gi­ant cin­na­mon rolls. Are you more in­ter­ested in at­mos­phere? It’s hard to beat Su­per Tanker’s scene, where peo­ple are re­laxed, happy, sat­is­fied and friendly enough to of­fer their two cents on where and what to eat. Most din­ers will cite Aki Pan­cake as the best of the best here, and they’re not wrong. Open from 6pm to 9pm, here if you’re look­ing for an in-depth chat with your lunch part­ner. Nearly any­thing you or­der will leave you both in stunned si­lence as you try to com­mit each bite to mem­ory. While the duck meat kuey teow th’ng and Chu­lia Street curry mee come highly rec­om­mended, you’re sure to see crowds around the pasem­bur and fried oys­ter stalls as well. Jalan Ce­cil is also one of the com­par­a­tively this stall nearly al­ways has a line of cus­tomers look­ing to get a de­li­ciously crispy, crêpe-like pan­cake pre­pared fresh with their favourite stuff­ing (from fruits to cheese to more sin­ful treats like cho­co­late). Also be sure to check out the pan mee stall, where you can watch as the hawker pre­pares hand-made flour noo­dles from scratch. Be sure to ask for ex­tra sam­bal on the side… it’s so de­li­cious you’re sure to want more! few hawker cen­tres around that of­fer a de­li­cious se­lec­tion of Ny­onya items, from the afore­men­tioned otak-otak to a mouth-wa­ter­ing popiah. What­ever culi­nary de­light ends up on your plate, be sure to save room for dessert: the food court’s Ny­onya kuih stall is one of the best in Pe­nang. Come early to ex­plore the lo­cal ad­ja­cent mar­ket, which runs from the early morn­ing un­til just af­ter lunch.
