Why Gurney Drive Hawker Center is special ?

Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is the place of conciliation of all the delicacies one should try from Penang - Penang curry mee, assam laksa (noodles in a fish-based sour broth), ais kacang (a shaved ice dessert), cendol (a coconut milkbased shaved ice dessert), and rojak (a local salad); it is, thus, perfect, for your one-stop sampling of what Penang has to offer. There are downsides, however the prices have burgeoned along with its popularity and the traffic around the area proves to be a hassle.
