Eateries w food at cut-throat price Tips (3)

gurney price???

no doubt you can find varies of penang hawker food here nonetheless, ask for the price before you order. there is no price listed on the food. hee.. if you speak in hokkien (local dialet), you get the local price. anyway, dun take things for granted, local people like me got cheated too :(

Unique Suggestions as long as you open ur mouth to ask for the price, well.. this place is a heaven for ur stomach.

Ask about the price before you order !

Well the hawker's food is comparatively dirt cheap even to places like Bali . Well sometimes certain ( but not all ) can be a little unscrupulous. They will assume that you will be ordering a large plate / bowl and when they they hand to you the plate you cant say no because you didnt specify in the first place.

All hawkers stalls and shops in Malaysia ar supposed to display their price or price tags to customers. If they dont and there is a complain from the public , their license will be revoke ! One place to complain will be the Consumer Association of Penang ( CAP ) which is a very active and fiery association !

So make sure you ask about the price BEFORE you order ! Exercise your right as CONSUMER !

Expensive Eateries

Okay- now everyone knows that popular restaurants most of the time are normally competetively priced...wrong!
We went to this restaurant (which didn't even have air-conditioning) anyway, this restaurant was newly opened, many people...along Gurney Drive. I don't remember the name, but it had many coconut leaf shacks outside it. Anyway, the food took such a long time to come, wasn't that tasty but had ridiculously high prices. My advise- avoid touristy looking places- locals go for the food, not ambience...

Unique Suggestions Order food that is NOT reccomended by the waiter/waitress...thats usually the most expensive...avoid seafood...although you're on an island.

Fun Alternatives There are many other places to go to, but I only have one favourite- the Maple Gold- cheap, good service, fabulous food...watch for that tip.
