Breakfast at Solok Moulmein.1 only covered two coffee shops at the junction of Jalan Burma and Solok Moulmein. There is yet another coffee shop at the end of this short road, with more hawkers food for you to try. No wonder Penang is the Hawkers’ Paradise of the Far East. Eating and enjoying street food is a way of life in Penang. You can ask Penangites when they leave the country on a short holiday or a long visit, what do they miss most of all and the usual answer will be hawkers food. Being born and bred here, I cannot imagine going without such food for any length of time.
Even when we have guests from Singapore and we ask them what do they want to eat and the inevitable answer is hawkers food.

On the left of the photo is the way to Pulau Tikus Market where you can find lots of interesting stuff, which we will cover in another article. The hustle and bustle of this place sometimes take my breath away.
