If you are a tourist, you will be surprised by the crowd at food stalls at any time of the day, still beats me too!
One of their favorite food is Lok Lok; which has fishballs, vege, meatballs, eggs, cuttlefish, prawns on a stick; pretty much skewer-style which you dip into boiling water in a pot and then dip into sauce and into your mouth!
The favorite and one of the most popular place for Lok Lok during the day is Padang Brown which is at the intersection of Jalan Dato Keramat.
The Lok Lok starts from 2.30p.m onwards along with the Popiah stalls.
There are also various hawker food such as Char Koay Teow, Nyonya Kueh, Yong Tow Foo at the other end, and also Pasembur.
There is a variety of food placed at the table for Lok Lok
Lok lok is also known as Satay Celup in Melaka and other states and the Malays name them as Celup celup which pretty translates from the Chinese meaning as "Dip" as the food on the skewer are dipped into the boiling water to cook and then dipped into the plate of their favoured sauce.
Ice Kacang at Rm1.50 is really welcomed on a hot weather
And Popiah with crabmeat at Rm1.20 per roll is also one of the favorites here:)
With all these assorted delectable delights around this little island,
Is it any wonder Penang is the food paradise of Malaysia?
