i can not think of a better way to emerse myself into the Malay culture than in Danny Mashes’ Heritage on a Plate Tour four hour wlking tour of Georgetown, Penang. This was perhaps one of the most profitable evening tours I’ve ever participated in.

One could immediately sense the excitement Danny felt when talking about Penang’s rich cultural and historical heritage. This transcended down to his fascinating and highly educational stories and annicodes. His knowledge was impressive; his presentation style relaxed, friendly and at times funny. The recipes in each restaurant chosen for our food sampling highlighted his stories and provided a wonderful opportunity to savor food capturimg the cultural heritage of this age-old society.

It’s obvious that in an enormous amount of preparation was put into the development of this tour. For me it was a learning experience and an opportunity to experience a culture I knew little or nothing about. Danny made the streets come alive and for this I thank him for providing an exciting evening.

It has taken me far too long to write this review, but in a way, it means more that my partner and I still remember this food tour as a stand out highlight of our time in Malaysia and Penang. (NOTE we went in Nov 2019 but I can't pick that option!) From the moment we met Danny, his passion and knowledge about Penang stood out. Such varied cultures allow Danny to craft a wonderful tour, taking in the sights, smells and tastes of the 2nd biggest city in Malaysia, whilst reminding you of its humble origins. It gave us new eyes on the town and we went back to many of the stops in the following days. Thank you Danny for loving the city in a way that you were so willing to share with us. We hope you are keeping safe in the difficult times 2020 has brought and we will be back soon! Siobhan and Stefano x

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our food and history tour. It was a highlight of our week in Penang.

Danny is a fantastic guide, he is both knowledgeable and passionate about the unique history and food of George Town. He is a masterful storyteller, and gives you enough of a flavour to understand the colourful past that makes George Town what it is today. He also very much knows his stuff when it comes to good food.

We did this tour on our 5th night there, and learnt so much more about the city and it’s culinary delights than we could ever have discovered on our own.

The tour is a good balance of eating and history, with some walking around in between to ease digestion (which is very much needed!). Danny caters to the group to make sure everyone is well fed and any dietary requirements carefully met.

Finally, but not least - the food is incredible. So yummy. We tried everything and it was all delicious. The cuisine is varied and you stop at both street hawkers and restaurants.

Do this tour on Day 1 of your stay, and come hungry!

Booked this food tour as part of a 2 week South East Asia cruise. I was keen to do something different and Danny had great reviews..... yet the excursion still exceeded our expectations,

Danny is so knowledgeable, friendly, professional and easy to chat to. Quite incredible how much we learnt about the history of Penang, life as a Penangite, the hidden meaning of Penang,s street art and their delicious food!

We ate in places that as cautious UK travellers we would not have considered. What an utterly awesome experience this became, eating and drinking like a local! This taught use so much that a few days later in Singapore we ate at a similar style restaurant with real confidence.

Brilliant experience - thanks Danny!

Just go on and book this tour!! It really is Heritage on a plate, you get to know George town and you get to taste George town :). Danny was an excellent guide, very attentive! If I wasn't leaving Penang I would have gone for a second round ;). Eating your way through a city is the best way to get to know it in my opinion, just make sure you are hungry :)

Definitely would recommend and will do it again

Danny's tour of Georgetown is one of the highlights of our whole vacation in Malaysia. He is a charasmatic and thoughtful host, who took care of us and catered the tour to suit our preferences. The food was outstanding, but what makes this tour special is Danny's expertise on the history of Georgetown and his passion for conserving it. An absolute must-do when visiting Penang. Thank you, Danny!

George Town may be 70000 degrees but Danny from Heritage on a Plate made my dad and I feel super cool and brave by showing us around local haunts and feeding us some incredible food. We tried to pace ourselves but even though I was wearing my Eating Dress (TM) and even though we walked plenty with lots of incredible historical insight, I was waddling by the end of it, bested by an incredible Duck Noodle Soup.

This tour is how every foodie dreams of spending an evening, like stepping into those Netflix food travel shows we all drool over from the sofa.

Will 💯 be coming back again with my husband and friends the next time I’m in Penang.

Great night with Danny exploring food, culture and history of Georgetown. The interesting route took us by temples, shrines and sites of historical events while working off each delicious course. Highly recommend this tour.
