Penang Food Faqs

Daniel asks…

Need to shift to Penang, Malaysia. Can you guys give me some details about accommodation on rent & Veg. Food?

Need accommodation on rent near Bayan Lepas and average rent of a decent apartment there.
Thanks for all the early replies. You’ll made my day!!

Penang Local Boy answers:

There are plenty of apartment blocks in Bayan Lepas. So rent availability shouldn’t be a problem. Rent is about a few hundred Ringgit Malaysia per month, depending on the type of apartment you rent. As for veggie food, there are quite some Indian veggie restaurants in and around there. You just have to ask the local for a more specific location.

Lisa asks…


Will be in Penang for 6 days and KL for 4 days. Can you please guide me regarding the prices for FOOD, CLOTHES, SHOPPING in Penang and KL?
How much would a good decent tasty meal cost for a person in a good clean restaurant and how much would it cost in a good hotel restaurant!?!

Penang Local Boy answers:

At hawker stands you can get meals for about a buck…they really are quite clean, and taste better than any other food. However, if you are crazy for the classy type foods, it depends how fancy you get. At Chinese New Year, we visit a super high-class restaurant and it costs like $3000 for a ten-course dinner (for like five people). Just budget, there’s restaurants all over Malaysia to cater to your hygienic and financial needs.

Shopping is really cheap, if you know where to go. Really pretty shirts are like $6 Canadian, MAX!

Go crazy…Malaysia is the best place on earth!
