    This unassuming small house at Balik Pulau has baffled many straightaway; you’ll feel like stepping into Terengganu or Kelantan as three women are stocking up a reputation for delivering the best Keropok Lekors in Penang. As early as 6 am the preparations get going and served at a nearby stall in the late afternoon. Unlike the crispier ones you get from the east coast, the deep-fried lekor here is much soft, chewy and packed with strong fishy flavours and accompanied with the best mate – chili sauce. It's sinfully addictive; you’ll just gobble down as many batons as you can while admiring the untouched nature of Balik Pulau.

    Tips

    Things to expect

    Oh yes, this unique snack does stretch your imagination and appetite. Answering your curiosity, fresh and gooey mozzarella cheese is burrowed between the fish ball. Unlike regular Keropok Lekors, it’s rolled into a little round shape, somewhat reminiscent of cokodok. The gooiness of the cheese blends well with the fluffy meat inside and the firm outer crust. They don’t sell them cooked, therefore, grab a few packets and get back home; it’s certainly going to be your best pal when you hit your comfy couch.

    Nope, the hospital isn’t selling any deep-fried crackers, it’s a little stall close to the side exit. This welcoming uncle behind a huge vat has been dishing out luscious Keropok Lekors for decades and during peak hours, the crowd is never-ending. Once, it’s fished out from the vat, you’ll be salivating looking at the batons of fish crackers dropped on the tray. The lekors are plump, tender and the spicy-sweet chili sauce enhances the flavours. Pack a generous portion and head to the coffee stall just opposite the road, a glass of lathered teh tarik mingles well with the tasty lekors.

    Lunch and evening time is jam-packed
