Air Itam - The Ultimate Street Food Haven !

I have not visited Air Itam for a long, long time and to my utter surprise this is the utmost gem of Penang for street food.
Made me wonder why I have neglected this precious part of Penang ...
Well, I am back.
First of all, Air Itam houses
The Best Curry Mee !
Kindly take note that the stall is at the market and it only starts from 1pm till it finished at around 5pm.
So, please make sure you get the time right otherwise you will be utterly disappointed.
To prove a point, I am not a curry mee fan and I ended up having 2 bowls.
If there is going to be 1 phrase to describe this, it will be
Heaven On Earth :-)
Yup it is indeed that yummy !
2nd bowl - add peppermint leaves
Regular bowl RM3.50, Large RM 4.00
Service is super efficient
Very reasonably priced

So we come to the all famous Asam Laksa of Air Itam
What I would like to suggest to you is to try the 'Deaf and Dumb Laksa' stall opposite the all famous one.
In my opinion, this one is better than the all famous one.
However, if you are there late evening, only the all famous one is opened.
The old feel of Penang is still very strong here.
Especially in the morning you still see loads of uncles and aunties bargaining over their goodies.
The ambience is so 'Penang' and you have the beauty of Kek Lok Si as a background.
And there is still plenty of greens as backdrop.
Wonderful ... highly recommend to tourist far and near :-)
Durian season is here too ....
You may also try the pan mee which is rather yummy.
Also the Koay Teow Thing aunty team
Two friendly old ladies ...
Food at Air Itam is still pretty reasonably priced.
There are loads more of yummy street food here.
One visit to this ultimate venue is not enough even if you have 3 meals here a day.
If you have not been here for some time, I highly recommend you to.
I was pleasantly surprised and since the last visit, I have gone back 3 times already.
