Exploring Penang (Part 5) — Penang International Food Festival
It was a hot afternoon and since I am hungry, I headed to Georgetown again for some great food.
I settled for ice-cream, matcha (green tea) latte and a chicken sandwich at this one unique place.
It is beside the Mural — Kids on bicycle by Ernest Zacharevic. It was in Part 4 of going around Penang series. The place is called 262 坊.
It is a minimalist space that houses multiple cafes where I got to try the food. Not bad. The inside is really cool with all these plants.

PIFF is super lit! There were lots of food stalls serving local foods to be tried out. This is the festival where every part of Penang food come together at this spot.
The local food that I tried below is the roti canai, known as flatbread that is eaten with the curry sauce. Next, is the cendol, it is a dessert that is shaved ice paired with brown sugar, coconut milk and some toppings. Lastly, the dim sum, where it is pork meat in the shape of a ball.
