Penang Humble Hawkers

Chef Samuel’s Hawker Food Cooking Class


There’s no doubt that Penang is the food capital of Malaysia. Unravel the winning blend that brought Penang cuisine into the limelight; the hawker stalls that can be found in any corner of this beautiful, colonial, sun-kissed island. In Chef Samuel’s best-seller humble hawkers cooking class, you’ll learn how to cook some of the most popular hawker dishes from Penang: the sour-spicy goodness that is Asam Laksa, rated by CNN as the 7th best food in the world; Claypot Chicken Rice, a wholesomely fragrant staple dish with generous amounts of Asian umami ingredients, and a crafty show-stopper bean curd and pork side dish, known as Loh Bak.

Starting with a complimentary pick up service from your hotel or residence, we’ll visit Ayer Itam Wet Market in the morning to learn some local Malaysian fresh produce in one of the hidden, oldest & busiest living wet market in Penang. Enjoy a cuppa hot local Penang coffee and sample an authentic hawker breakfast in a nearby authentic coffee shop before we packed for some culinary adventure. Topped with a refreshing nutmeg juice at your side with a breathtaking 360 bird eye view of Penang from our cooking studio, the culinary hawker food cooking class journey is yours to enjoy.
