Penang hawker fare @ New Lane

Normally, we non-locals would head straight to Gurney Drive but locals recommend New Lane for better Penang hawker fare. And so, New Lane it was for us.

There were many stalls hawking a variety of local fare. There was a continuous stream of diners from all walks of life, too.

We found a table and then took turns to order food. We stopped at every stall to order one serve of every thing.

The system here is that you place your order at the stall, they will give you a number and when your food arrives, you pay for the food and return the number to them.

And boy, did we just order non-stop!

If you are feeling a little hungry and it is late at night now, please do not scroll down any further. You will regret it.

From here onwards, I shall let the photos do more of the describing...
