i'm going to penang 11th april.

can i request for some poi recommendation on makan places that contain many stalls ?
so far i only know 2. gurney drive and mcallister road. other than that, all also i dunno.
ah yes, and the stuff that i look forward to eating are

1 Lobak
2 Char kuey teow
3 Assam Laksa <---mah waif's request
4 Popiah
5 ju hu char
6 pasembor <---- i dunno how to get to the pasembur stall and all i know is got a caltex petrol station nearby. dun ask me which part coz i also dunno.
7 har mee

any other food recomendations are welcomed with poi's or co-ordinates at least. last year i went QEII my bill came up to like RM 1k. my credit card company is damn happy for me. i hope they bankrap.

also tell me if the makan makan stalls open during daytime or nighttime. so many penang stuff i wanna try but so little time. i heard of this jap place restaurant called TAO. i'll skip that. gua mau makan sampai perut pecah. please please kasi co-ordinates yah ! thank you mfm gang ! anon shall give u free intehnets for this.

oh btw when i went last time, the assam laksa near kek lok si, drop quality liao.

I'm guessing this is the central/southern malaysia hokkien. Direct translation:
te : pig
ka : leg
png : rice

The other 2 : Ore Mee", & "Cham Kee Tng" (Bak Kee Tng), I "see no road" :-? :ko:

If you are adventurous, then venture further in-land butterworth/prai and in a little housing estate, you can find this stall operating in a home ( terrace ) that serves what is known there as Alma Shou Mee Noodles ( Penang style prawn mee ) corner house at Lintang Damai - Lorong Damai 1 junction, N5 20.354 E100 28.360. If you do not have transport, then it is difficult to go to it.
