NEW Sim­ply Enak

(+6017 287 8929/www.sim­plye­nak. com).

The sheer amount of good food in Pe­nang makes din­ing out rather over­whelm­ing if you’re new to the city. Cue Sim­ply Enak and culi­nary ex­pert Mark Ng. Staffed with tour guides cer­ti­fied by Tourism Malaysia, Sim­ply Enak in­tro­duces food en­thu­si­asts to the best of the is­land’s iconic eats while throw­ing in tit­bits of lo­cal his­tory. The com­pany runs two four-hour tours per day: Pe­nang Har­mony Food Trail in the morn­ings and Eat Drink Ge­orge­town in the evenings. The price of each tour is in­clu­sive of three meals plus snacks in be­tween. Come hun­gry, for sure!

Book­ings re­quire a min­i­mum of two pax from RM250 per per­son.
