Considered the best vantage point for sunset on the island this coastline
stretch that is popular time-out spot for families and lovers, just
outside of Georgetown proper. The area is one of the upmarket residential
areas, which in no way dampens the lively night market or lowers the
numbers of that Penang speciality - hawker stalls. Ten minutes from
Gurney Drive towards the beach area is the Hokkien Mee stall where
hokkien mee (prawn noodles for the ignorant) are sold, opposite the
Pulau Tikus police station. These tasty noodles are a speciality on
the island, and pretty popular for breakfast – be there before
9.30am as stock runs out quick.
The stalls operate from about 6.00pm to 12.00am daily.
