Tiger is a very knowledgeable, passionate and chatty guide who will give you the experience to eat like a local. Perfect if you want to eat some foods you may not have heard of unique to Penang.

素晴らしい体験でした!食べ物はたくさんで、いろいろな種類の物を味わえて、本当に良かったです。そしてマレーシアの文化の話も、大変楽しく聞けました。また、ペナンに来たら絶対このツアーに参加します。タイガーさん、ありがとう!すごく楽しかったです!

Best food tour ever!! Tiger imparted so much knowledge on us, not just about the food but the culture and history of Penang. We both came away from the experience with full tummy’s and lots of new knowledge! Tiger catered well for our dietary requirements and I didn’t feel we missed out on anything because we are vegetarians. I honestly can’t recommend this tour enough because you try great food, yes, but you get very well acquainted with the city and explore local spots.

Tiger was an exceptional host right from the moment we met him. Our day out exceeded expectations, the food was delicious except for one dish, but, that's ok it's part of learning the cuisine of another country and understanding the history behind the dish. We were lucky to see the special pancake man on the roadside an unexpected encounter...deliciousness overload. We recommend not eating before this tour! We came away satiated, discovered new delights and made a wonderful new friend. Tiger you are Gold!
