Ipoh Style Chee Cheong Fun is quite refreshing and different from the regular Penang chee cheong fun. Instead of having the sweet sauce, Ipoh style uses chili and dried prawns. The verdict? Pretty refreshing and delicious albeit the spicy taste.

Penang Style Chee Cheong Fun is also enjoyable and tasty. Unlike the one at the Gardens, these chee cheong fun only costs RM 3.00 and RM 2.00 for a smaller portion.

I would definitely come here again for the food and the service.

Penang Food – Gurney Drive Hawker Stalls @ Persiaran Gurney, Penang

Gurney Drive is popular with its hawkers affair and have recently become a phenomenon in Penang where visitors from KL and as far as Singapore flock down to Gurney Drive just to sample its delicate array of food. The number of people frequenting Gurney Drive hawker stalls on weekends is quite high compare to many years ago and it can be a daunting experience to visit the ever so famous Gurney Drive just to sample Penang’s delicacy as finding a place to sit can be as difficult as finding a parking space in Kuala Lumpur shopping malls during the weekend. Furthermore, the quality of the food has drastically deteriorate over the years.

Gurney Drive’s Chee Cheong Fun

Gurney’s Drive Chee Cheong Fun fairs so much better than the flamboyant restaurant in The Gardens with the same name. From RM 2 for a small plate to RM 4 for large, you can eat until you vomit but you don’t have to pay RM 8 for a plate. What’s more important is a hawker food should be eaten in a hawker centre, if the patrons want to eat in an air-conditioned place, there is something called "take-away".

Gurney Drive's Muar Chee
Gurney Drive’s Muar Chee

Muar Chee (Stall #55) serves Muar Chee and they are just so tasty. Just like many other stalls, there are a few options to choose from — small and large with the difference at only 50 cents.

Gurney Drive's Fried Chicken
Gurney Drive’s Fried Chicken

M Tucky Fried Chicken (Stall #100) serves delicious Fried Chicken, Fried Sotong, Fried Chicken Skin, Fried Sausage and more. They are incredibly crispy and the stall usually has really long queues. Even though the food tastes quite good, they are also incredibly unhealthy.

Gurney Drive's Ais Kacang
Gurney Drive’s Ais Kacang

There is however, nothing to shout about for the Ais Kacang (Stall #78). It is quite bland and the ingredients is quite minimal and even though there are usually a long queue at this stall, don’t be fooled and intimidated by the queue.

Gurney Drive's Cendol
Gurney Drive’s Cendol

The Cendol is quite mediocre but it is definitely better than the Ais Kacang. Nevertheless, nothing beats the cendol in Cendol Klang. That’s for sure.

Gurney Drive's Longan Tau Fa
Gurney Drive’s Longan Tau Fa

Longan Tau Fa (Stall #76) is quite refreshing and unique as it is a cup of jelly and longan and is a better choice as dessert after a hearty meal at Gurney Drive.

Overall, Gurney Drive hawker stalls have changed so much over the decade. While the place is always filled with patrons, the number of eaters has gone up while the quality of the food has gone down. There are always other hawker stalls in Penang.

  • Stall #108
  • Chee Cheong Fun – RM 2 (Small), RM 3 (Medium), RM 4 (Large)

With so many flavors to choose from, it’s really quite hard to choose. Why not buy them all? They are definitely more delicious than the Chee Cheong Fun at Gurney Drive.

Personally, I like the Cheese Sauce. Even Mr. Chaang said most of his customers preferred the Cheese Sauce as it’s unique and you can’t buy it elsewhere.

Penang Food – Gurney Drive @ The Gardens Mid Valley

Gurney Drive is a restaurant in The Gardens, Mid Valley that serves local delicacies from Penang. Don’t be fooled by the descriptions of Gurney Drive, they are food stalls, but it’s a restaurant actually. The gimmick is to trick people into believing the food are cheap since most restaurants in The Gardens serve expensive food.

Nasi Lemak – Hometown Kopitiam @ The Curve

Hometown Kopitiam is yet another new-age kopitiam that has swarmed our nation lately.

The coffee is worth it while the best thing here is the Nasi Lemak, of course. Though the price is a little high for Nasi Lemak in a kopitiam, the Nasi Lemak is quite enjoyable. Not the best around town though.

The Chee Cheong Fun is only so-so, I rather pay double to eat the Nasi Lemak. Then again, I rather pay double the price of the Nasi Lemak here and eat at Madam Kwan’s.
