    Padang Brown Hawker

    What makes this spot unique is that their hawker stalls are separated into the halal and non-halal sections. You will find a combination of all kinds of local delights; after all, this is what makes us truly Malaysian. Among the myriad of food stalls lies a quiet little stall offering all sorts of yong tau fu, and for those with a penchant for innards such as intestines, you can enjoy  this chewy offal over here. Just pick a bowl and a pair of tongs and grab whatever you want before handing it over to the cook for a blanch in the hot soup.


    Tips

    Try searching for a parking space before arriving.

    Things to expect

    Cool, shady environment, free seating.
