Husband and I got back from our holiday in KL/Penang a couple of days ago and we already miss the food from this Hawkers market. We absolutely loved it and couldn't believe how cheap it all was - really delicious too. I am giving it a five star for the food - great variety, delicious and cheap. We were nervous at first about the cleanliness of it all but neither of us had any trouble with tummy bugs. We ate here every night. I initially steered right away from the fruit drinks as I was worried about any (unsafe) water that might have been added to them but on the third night I did have an orange juice and it even had ice in it - I was fine! My favourite food here was the Char Kway Teow ($2AUD a plate) - a local Penang noodle specialty - I have since investigated the recipe online so that I can cook it myself - or at least try to! My husband loved it too and he said it was as good as, if not better than, the one he had at the Golden Sands. Other favourites of ours were the Indian chicken Samoosa (less than $2AUD for two large ones), roti with curry chicken and Roti with banana or pineapple (and possibly chocolate sauce) and ice-cream for most of our desserts.
Some people have complained about the toilets here and I believe them when they say how disgusting they were. Each night we came straight from our hotel (Golden Sands) so we had no need to visit the rest rooms - I am really glad of that as I'd had enough of filthy toiltes by the time I boarded our return flight home. The ones at the airport (the 2ndary domestic/Air Asia one) were really putrid and I literally felt nauseous after one visit. I didn't take toilets into account in my rating - just rated the food which we couldn't fault!
