Perak Road Market (GPS: 5.39981, 100.31441) is one of the older markets in Penang. It was established by the predominantly Chinese community living in the Chinese settlement around Perak Road. Although the market building is on Jalan Slim, the market itself spills over the side roads into Jalan Pasar and Perak Road itself. Apart from the fresh produce, you can also get cheap clothes as well as breakfast there. I like the Koay Kark on the opposite side of Perak Road, fried with duck egg.

Getting there

To get to Perak Road, take Rapid Penang Bus 11.
