Hawker Center @Jalan MacAlister, Penang

What will people think first when we talk about Penang? Penang Hill? Batu Feringghi? Hard Rock Cafe? I doubt any of them come first but their local food! Penang famous with their local foods and that is the reason there are a lot of hawker center at Penang. One of them is at Jalan MacAlister. No name for this hawker center but the local good foods are concentrated here.

A lot of hawker stall like this here. There are just too many to choose from.

Six Flavors Soup @RM6.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5

Overall the hawker center here is a mixture of mediocre local food and good local food. So basically there is no hawker center with all the best local foods in it. So do a lot of leg work if would like to taste all the best local foods in Penang instead of having all in one place.
