Vegetarian Stall, Island Park – Simple and Affordable

During the “Nine Emperor Gods” festival, devotees will observe a strict vegetarian diet. In Penang, most of the devotees practise this culture during this time. However, the stalls set up specially for this festival usually charge an exorbitant price for its food. A normal mixed rice with 3 dishes might cost RM8 per plate. To the devotees, this is nothing unusual as there aren’t many options to choose from and this is for a limited time only. Thanks goodness recently there is a stall near Island Park, Jelutong that runs based on donation basis. You just need to donate upon your willingness.
