“Wide selection of hawker stalls”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

For a good selection of local Hawker food in an authentic setting, this is well worth a visit. Try the duck stall on the corner, for delicious roast duck with hoi sin sauce and rice.

“Great place for variety of local food.”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

In my first visit to this place was far more cleaner and well organize than what is shown on the picture above. Maybe this is because I'm not "penang lang", and just pay my first visit just few months ago, they may have probably moved or renovated. The place is quite pleasant, variety food to choose. Haha.. Especially Thai cuisine, the fried fish with sweet and sour sauce and balacan fried rice amaze me the most, for the taste of the fish was so appetizing that I can help my saliva for dripping and the rice which rich of the balacan fragrance. Not to miss also the fried oyster which is one of the most favourite dishes, the combination of egg and corn starch were just perfect. Another tidbit that is my father's favourite is the balacan fried chicken which is crispy from the outside and soft from the inside, the taste of balacan was so iresistable.

“Great variety and great value!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

There are so many different types of food at the supertanker hawker mall that you fill up so quickly getting just a little bit from each place. I recommend going with friends so you can order more dishes and share a wide variety of foods.
