Goh Thew Chik Hainan Chicken Rice @ Chulia Street
The shop has been very popular since the old days along this Chulia Street with many chicken rice operators.
However, seems like the quality of the mixed soya sauce drops as I can taste only saltiness rather than the mixture fragrance of sesame seeds and soya.
Hai Beng @ Jones Road Pulau Tikus
The coffee shop does not has many stalls but every single one of them is selling qyite popular hawker food.
First if all you will find the Hainanese Loh Mee. The store originated from Kuan Yin Teng since 1957! This is considered one of the popular store in Penang.
The other store at the coffee shop selling Nasi Melayu is very popular too. They have much varieties of dishes to choose from.
Kuantan Road Curry Mee is also operating here as well as Tiger Char Kuay Teow. Thr others are the Western food and the Double Boiled soups with Chu Char.

A Zinc-Rooftop store without name, selling home cooked dishes. Perfect place for after morning golf at Penang Golf Resort!
Their Chili Flower Crab is perfect. Steamed Fish like Teow Chew style Grouper or Stingray in Sour Palm Sauce is mouth watering. Fried Tofu with Ku-Chai, Bean Curd with Leeks and Soya Sauce Prawns are the must try! Other Fried vegetables are fantastic too.
Order the Rojak while waiting for your dish.

海墘(大樹脚)海鲜飯店 @ Weld Quay
This more than 2 decades store operates in 2 pre-war buildings. Part of the building is renovated with proper table sitting where the back section of it was nicely decorated with certain parts of the original broken brick walls and air well.
There are many selection of seafood to choose from. However, maybe I came with a bit higher expectation, as it has been so famous, the taste of the foods to me is a bit flat.
