Budget for food - Penang

We are going to stay at the Ferringhi Hotel on the 30 April to 3 May.

Can anyone give me an idea how much money we need to budget for meals? I was probably going to eat at the Ferringhi Hotel.

Does anyone have a suggestion on the best places to eat in Penang that are clean and reliable?

Thank you for your assistance?

If you wants to get local food @ Penang, I reccommend u to go Global bay food court @ B.F. Food there are cheap, taste great!(even better than food here in S'pore!!) and also clean. But the very BEST for local dishes are @ the Gurney Drive (opens @ evening) BUT not very clean compared to the food court. Coz its a big group of street hawkers joining together actually.

If u just wana have meals @ food court everyday during your stay. Around RM30 per person per day is enough, prolly more than enough if you are not a big volume eater like me :(

Restaurants prolly need about (AT LEAST) RM30 per person including other charges.
