Wet market is always a good place to search for good food, and due to the fact that most stalls nearby wet market are not commercialize yet, most of these stalls are able to maintain the quality of their food for a long time.
Being said so, Air Itam wet market is also 1 of the most famous market in Penang, and also 1 of the most crowded one. The crowd here every morning is incredible, and with it located nearby to the entrance of Kek Lok Si temple doesn’t help too.
Many times I had heard about the Koay Chap at Air Itam market, and some had said the Koay Chap here are consider 1 of the best in Penang. Like most other , the ingredients include duck meat, coagulated pork blood, egg and innards. Although the ingredients are good, but I am not a huge fan of dark black soup Koay Chap, as I prefer this and this more. 7.0/10

So many curry mee stall, so many hawker food around all over in Malaysia, but this curry mee stall at Air Itam will definitely give most people a very special most people an unforgettable experience.
Yes, I kid you not. This curry mee stall operate by 2 sisters who are old enough to be my grandmother. Oops, no, I don’t think it qualify as a stall at all, since there ain’t any stall there! Everything is on the floor! This is the first time I saw something like that.

Asam Laksa oh asam Laksa, I absolutely love asam Laksa especially those full with fish, well, since asam Laksa is all about fish ma. Whenever I got the laksa craving, I will definitely come to Farlim here for it’s laksa. They are really famous in the past, however, ever since they move to this new shop, their business seems to drop since every time I patronize them, only a few customer are in there.
Nevertheless, I still absolutely love the laksa here although they do hire Indonesian maid to cook the dish.
The coffee shop is very spacious and big, especially since most of the time it was empty. I always love to dine at a place where it’s always empty but still serve great food, simply because I can find parking easier, order my food faster, get to eat my food faster, and able to eat my food at my own pace since I don’t need to worry about eyes staring at you wishing you faster finish it so that they can have a place to sit. Besides, empty restaurant also won’t be so stuffy, but of course la, the food must be good!
