A Passion for Penang Food & History

Hello! I’m Danny and I’m one of the co-founders of Heritage on a Plate. You’ll meet me on most of our food tours, or food hops as we like to call them.

I have a real passion for Malaysian food, and Penang street food in particular. When I’m not hosting hops or plotting to take over the world, I’m usually eating, or reading about eating.

I was born here and in the last few years its become my calling to document and tell the story of Penang. The story of this island and its people can be inspiring, suprising, harrowing and heartwarming. It is a place with so much to tell, and I’d like to share that with you through our food.

Stories are much better with food anyway :)
