On day 1 upon arrival at Penang, we went to our favorite 'chap fan' (economy rice) stall - Oriental Food Stall, located at Macalister Street. The hubs discovered this unassuming stall during our 3-week stay in Penang in May this year. He used to pack lunch and dinner from this stall for me and brought them to the hospital. Food was one of the things that cheered me up and released my stress during my nightmarish stay in the hospital with Baby. Though this stall looks really uninviting and the place looks pretty run down, when you step in, the place is pretty clean. All the dishes taste really good, some even taste better than restaurant food. Many locals flock to this stall and it is a common sight to see a long beeline during lunch and dinner hours.
Oriental Food Stall is situated next to this hawker center - Pinang Delicious Food Court.
There are almost 50 mouth-watering dishes to choose from...
All types of dishes are availabe. My favorite dish is their signature fried turmeric fish with asam, a dish not many people know how to cook.
These are some of the dishes that we ordered:
