Although it's probably not the best hawker food you can get in Penang, it is open during lunch time while others tend to be open for dinner only or only one or two stalls. This place has quite a variety.

This is a good hawker centre to visit if you want to try all the different types of good hawker food that Penang has to offer. There are stalls selling Malay, Chinese, and Indian food. And a famous Penang chendol (dessert) stall as well.

My favourite stall is the one selling fruits and drinks. Always ordered the mixed shaved ice when I visit this place.
