Le­buh Carnar­von, Ge­orge Town

Break­fast or lunchtime

Tiger char kuey


Le­buh Carnar­von is full of unas­sum­ing cafés that pack a punch, and Ping Hooi is no dif­fer­ent. Each morn­ing, Pe­nan­gites fill the ta­bles set up along the small area of side­walk out front, stop­ping by for a quick bowl of noo­dles be­fore go­ing about their day. Such a scene of­fers a re­minder that while thou­sands may come to the is­land each year in search of the per­fect meal, the lo­cal com­mu­nity gets to par­take in such culi­nary plea­sures any time they like – and they do so with gusto. The in­tox­i­cat­ing aro­mas mak­ing their way out of the woks and into the air make it nearly im­pos­si­ble to walk by Ping Hooi with­out stop­ping for a bite. The al­fresco café also brings in a lovely breeze that, when paired with the charm­ingly old-world black-and-white tiled floors, can make a meal here feel se­ri­ously nos­tal­gic. You can easily while away a few ex­tra min­utes af­ter your meal sim­ply by watch­ing cars and peo­ple pass by. How­ever, if you stay here for too long you may be con­vinced of the need for an ex­tra serv­ing of char kuey teow – the stall here is con­sid­ered one of Pe­nang’s very best.
