What are the best places to eat in Malaysia?

I need a list of places to eat in Malaysia, but I can’t find much on the internet. It doesn’t matter which state it is in, but please include the name of the place and the state.

For example,
Gurney Drive (Penang)
Petaling Street (KL)

You can also put specific names of restaurants too, if you want.

Thank you!!!

Ken asks…

Any further updates on the Elvine Travel (Penang) matter?

A further update – the original question has been “resolved” but I wanted to post this for everyone..
I’ve now had (yesterday) a call from Jackson Koo at Elvine Travel (at least that’s what he claimed!). He says that someone is ‘scamming’ their promotion, and that the Malaysian and New Zealand police are investigating.
He has asked me to scan my prize card and send it to him for verification.
His email, should you wish to contact him is:
I’ve done some further internet searching. For a company claiming to have “branches all over Asia”, only the Penang address comes up on a search. On a Malaysian business directory they have a single line entry. Their only promotion seems to be a Bali trip.
Keen to know if anyone else has made contact. As someone says, for a “30-year old company” they have a tiny electronic footprint.
I have asked a Penang friend to check out their office at Gurney Plaza.

Penang Local Boy answers:

Thanks everyone for posting here.
I too have ‘won’ second prize from Elvine Travel, with a glossy brochure posted to my home address in New Zealand. No names included.
I recently stayed in a hotel in Hong Kong, so initially thought that’s how they got my address – but given the other postings here I suspect they’ve just spammed lots of NZ addresses.
