Jalan Mayang Pasir, Bayan Baru

Lunchtime Sri In­dian Food Bayan Baru Food Court, or Sun­shine Mar­ket as it’s some­times known, is one of the big­gest in Pe­nang, and while it may not be on the tourist route, it is cer­tainly known to lo­cals – par­tic­u­larly busi­ness­men and busi­ness­women work­ing in the nearby Free Trade Zone, who make up the ma­jor­ity of din­ers here dur­ing the lunch hour. Large, clean and air con­di­tioned, it boasts of nearly a hun­dred dif­fer­ent food stalls. With so many of­fer­ings, meal­times can seem some­what daunt­ing, but there are a few crowd favourites that stand out above the rest. Sri In­dian Food of­fers a mouth­wa­ter­ing se­lec­tion of home­made dishes for a very rea­son­able price. The cook’s fa­mous chut­ney runs out quickly dur­ing the lunch rush, so get there early! Be­sides this, Lai Hoe’s tom yam bee

draws a big crowd, and for good rea­son. The curry mee served dur­ing break­fast also gets rave re­views for its au­then­tic­ity – it comes com­plete with pork blood. If you end up eat­ing more than you should, not to worry: this com­plex is huge, and it is fun to just stroll around and take it all in. If you come early, you can catch the bustling mar­ket right next door, also one of Pe­nang’s largest.
