The Lunch HOP

Lunch time in George Town is a bustle of activity. Recipes that were developed to nourish port workers and labourers have evolved to cater to executives and engineers. And yet they retain their rustic roots, and are all the more special and delicious for it.

Come experience the story of George Town's inception and discover the dishes that fed generations of working class Penangites. Enjoy food from the ethnic Hokkien, Indian-Muslim and Nyonya communities as well as some nice, cool and sometimes suprising desserts.
