Singapore hawker food better than that of Penang??

                                   (Penang Char Koay Teow)
Singapore hawker food better than that of Penang???  Hey, where is your mouth located???  Even looking at the photos below will make you salivate.  They are the best Penang hawker foods : Hokkien mee, Char Koay Teow, Laksa, and Nasi Kandar.  

What sort of survey is this?  Some website and some write-up not worth mentioning in this blog claimed that Singapore hawker food is better than that of Penang.  I honestly wonder where their mouths are located.  Our Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng rightly defended Penang by saying, "Comparing Penang food to that of Singapore is like comparing Mount Everest to a hill."  If you are still dreaming, Mount Everest is Penang, and the little hill is Singapore!

May I add, it's like comparing Penang best chendul to "long kau chooi"!!  If you don't know what Penang chendul is, and what "long kau chooi" is, then you may be excused to believe that Singapore hawker food is better than that of Penang.   Mind you, I am Penang born and bred, and retired here.   

Oh my goodness!!

It is hard to change people perception Singapore hawker's food is better than Penang home make delicacies with century old recipe, that is fine with me, if that is what other people/foreigners want to believe despite the fact tell otherwise. The marketing campaign run by Singapore tourism agency may have done a marvelous job in perpetrating such a myth to the world's food cravers at large, forgive them for being misguided, no harm had been done to Penang except these people don't get to enjoy the best food in S.E.A right here, it is actually their loss. :-) :-) :-)

Dear Bro's n Sis's , Uncle's n Auntie's, Ah Kong n Ah Mah ,

Lets swallow our pride and admit the truth.....honestly speaking penang use to be a food haven but now with the vietnamese, myanmar etc taking over our hawker stall...really now our food sucks and ; in Alor Star n Taiping which also have similar good hawker food like Penang then now really sucks too. Bytheway the real reason Singapore PenangCharKuey Teow is better than Penang is becos many good Penang hawker auntie's n uncles's have migrated to singapore becos their son n daughter are working in sg so what to be surprise about- dont believe next time just speak Penang Hokkien to the so call singpore hawker who dish out the best Penang food n you will b surprise they speak la lang eh penang hokkien wah..ee a penang hokkien im bay how siau eh....ok
