Fisherman's Wharf (槟城渔人码头)- Great Cheap Eats @ Karpal Singh Drive, Georgetown, Penang.

Penang is a State blessed with myriad of street and hawker food; hawker centers are part of our lives and we are never bored of getting excited to visit all these hawker centers! If you are one of us or intend to indulge in a great variety of local food (this is the best way to savor authentic and yummy local delights), make your way to Fisherman's Wharf.... one of the largest food courts in town. The place is not new but was recently taken over by a new management (since last quarter of 2017) and therefore, given a new face to the place. It is now more organized, cleaner with more food choices  available (Fisherman's Wharf houses more than 40 food stalls). The locals' favorites- Curry Mee, Hokkien Mee, Char Koay Kak, Koay Teow Th'ng, Lam Mee, Lor Bak, Bak Kut Teh etc are all there but if you or your guests prefer a little international variety, there are Pizza, Shawerma, Burgers, Japanese and Korean dishes as well. Rest-assured, all items are reasonably priced to the "hawker" standard and will not put a dent on your wallet. It's also worth mentioning that at certain hours, there will be live band performances.... imagine spending your weekend evenings on great food, chilled Beers and live performances at the beach front. Ample Free Parking space too if that's your concern.

This post is brought to you by Fisherman's Wharf.

Baked Crabs (Rm 60 per kg)

Lok-Lok (Rm 5 for Octopus/ prices vary for different products)

Barbecued Stingray (Rm 7/ by weight)

Curry Fish Head (Rm 30 to 50/ by weight)

Wild Boar Curry (Rm 15)

Barbecue Platter (Rm 88)

Roasted Pork (Rm 15)

The variety of local dishes will pose a challenge to the indecisive but if you do not know where to begin with, start with the comforting ones first... or a simple, addictive nibbles like crackling Roasted Pork (Sio Bak). Though purists would go for the classic version, there are some posh add ons available... like topping Roasted Pork on Curry Mee.

Seafood lovers are not forsaken too.... the budget-watchers may visit the Lok-Lok stall to savor the range of Lok-Lok offering... served with their home-made dips while those with deeper pockets could try the baked Crabs... available in different sizes and price points. Otherwise, the BBQ Platter would satisfy both your meat cravings and seafood desire.

As for those who prefer a Malaysian touch, go for their Curries available in the form of Curry Fish Head or the uncommonly found Wild Boar but if that's too heavy for you, the Ikan Bakar- Stingray would fit; either way, it works perfectly well with chilled Beers.
