Penang is a foodie’s paradise. Located off the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, this former British colony is rich in history, culture and architecture. As a former British trading post, the local food has Achenese, Portugese, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Malay, Arab and European influences. Unique to Penang is also the Peranakan and Nyonya cooking, where cultures mix and collide and from that comes a full-blown culinary experience and an explosion in taste like nowhere else.
Join us as we embark on an adventure to eat our way through food history past, present and in the making.
