Northam Beach Cafe (GPS: 5.42808, 100.32294) is a beach-side hawker centre along Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, which is formerly known as Northam Road. It is housed within a converted bungalow which is part of the millionaire's row. As with most of the mansions along Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, this bungalow now gets a new lease of life as a hawker centre.
There is plenty to eat at Northam Beach Cafe. The parking area is also quite large, although nevertheless there is some congestion especially during dinner time, unless you go early, say around 6:00 pm. The variety of stalls here is almost mind boggling.
Of the many varieties of food here, my favourite is the Hokkien Mee. The last time I had it, the big bowl costs RM7.50.

Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
