Penang Trip Day 3 (Part 1)

For the third day, we had to wake up early. Not because we had a lot of things to do but because we wanted to try the famous Paya Terubong Nasi Lemak. For those of you who don’t know — Nasi Lemak is a local dish in which the rice is cooked with coconut shavings, giving it an oily look and it is usually paired with eggs, salted nuts, sambal (chili paste) and anchovies. To have a fuller experience, you can also order the curry chicken or beef or any other meaty add-ons that will be offered to you on top of your nasi lemak.

This famous roadside stall (5.380154, 100.274847) sells out pretty quickly if you are not there early. When I was queuing up for the food, people were coming and ordering 5-10 packets each of this delicious breakfast. A word of warning though, this is an exceptionally unhealthy food. You need the GPS coordinates to find the shop, although I think they do have a permanent shop that sells the same thing all day long, but this roadside is the authentic version.
