Hungry Go Where Food Trail – Where The Eatery Adventure Began

HungryGoWhere is also known as HGW. The term HGW is already well known to most Singaporeans. Whenever they feel hungry or run out of idea where to get food, they will search for this website or use the mobile app to hunt for good food or better dining ideas. HGW is supported by SingTel Digital Media Pte. Ltd. (Singapore) which had made their grand entry into Malaysia by setting a new record of “The Longest Line of Nasi Lemak Bungkus” in the Guinness Book of World Records on 24 August 2013. After the well known Longest Line of Nasi Lemak Bungkus, now HGW came out with Penang Food Trail Event. This event consisted of HGW Malaysia mobile application users and bloggers. Those who were invited had the privilage to visit all the famous and best eateries in Penang.



The first stop of the trip was to try some delicious snacks located at Tan Jetty Fried Fritters. This stall is located away from the main road at the small lane of Tan Jetty.


The fritters were served fresh from time to time.


You could tell that the fritters are good just by the smell of them.


The 3 famous types of fritter here are Loh Bak (Pork Roll), Prawn Fritters and Bean Curd Fritters. Their homemade chili sauce consisted of blended red chilies, lime juice, sugar and salt and it is a perfect condiment to enhance the flavors.


The second stop for breakfast is on the same road just under the hidden government flat. I Mum Mum started off as a humble eatery. This is the original starter of I Mum Mum, now I Mum Mum has more then 3 branches in Penang. The specialties here is their Pan Mee.

After breakfast we headed to Mainland Penang – Pulau Aman where the real adventure began. In order to go to Pulau Aman, we need to take a motorboat from Batu Musang Jetty. The ride usually takes approximately 10 minutes.


The Jetty of Pulau Aman.


Upon arrival to the island, we were directed to Restaurant Terapung Pulau Aman (Floating Restaurant of Pulau Aman).


The restaurant is well known for its seafood especially the prawns and mantis prawn. Unfortunately, this round we were out of luck to get the famous 12-inch mantis prawn as the catch of the sea really depends on the season and weather.
