Penang food tour
Bobby_M, Aug 2023
This tour hit some must try dishes in Malaysia. The char kway teoh and samosa that they showed us were our favorites from the tour. If you're unsure of where to eat or things to do in Penang, the guides are knowledgeable and will happily offer recommendations. Jeremy and Brandon were very kind.
Excellent food tour
Lucy_W, Mar 2023
This was such a great tour! Our guide was so informative, not just on the food of Penang but the history too. All of the food we tried was amazing and in eateries which we probably wouldn’t have found if we hadn’t done the tour. Would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling to Penang.

Great tour as Jeremy our guide gave us a lot of historical information of the area as well as explaining all the types of food we tried in Penang. The food was excellent and got a better idea of life in Malaysia.

Jeremy provided an excellent introduction to Malay food and culture. We visited everything from street stalls and modest curb side restaurants to upscale restaurants. Jeremy also provided insights to the various ethnic and cultural communities.

My husband and I did this tour with our 4 year old son and were the only people on the tour. Our guide Jeremy was flexible with catering to our needs and was happy to answer all our questions including questions not really related to food. We enjoyed going to places we wouldn't find on our own and trying the different local dishes, and hearing about the background to the dishes. Another highlight was the summary email Jeremy sent - outlining the places we went and the food we had, as well as recommendations of other places to go and what to have there and even how to order particular things. I'd highly recommend doing one of the Heritage on a Plate tours - particularly early on in your stay at Penang - however I would recommend trying for the dinner hop if possible because it is really hot in the middle of the day!
