Jelutong Market

Jelutong Market, PenangJelutong Market, Penang (19 August, 2012)

Jelutong Market (GPS: 5.3896, 100.3124) is one of the popular wet markets in Penang. The actual market building faces Jalan Penaga, but the stalls line up much of Jalan Penaga and Ipoh Lane.

In addition to selling fresh produce, the Jelutong Market is a popular venue for breakfast, with many hawker stalls selling food. The market takes place in the morning. By evening, much of the market stalls have closed for the day, while a new set of food hawkers do the evening dinner business.

Perhaps the most popular beverage at the Jelutong Market is the Chinese sweet dessert, Mat Tao Yau. The business has an outlet at the corner shop along Jalan Penaga facing Jalan Ipoh. Other popular food at Jelutong Market includes the famous wan tan mee (which I selected as the Best Wan Tan Mee in Penang) in the morning, and the nasi kandar in the evening.
