The World's Best Cities for Street Food

Slide 16 of 26

Penang, Malaysia

Considered the street-food capital of Malaysia, Penang has dozens of the culinary megaplexes known as hawker centers. Gurney Drive and New Lane are two of the more notable destinations where, for mere pennies, you'll find countless stands serving thick, brothy noodles (ipoh hor fun), coconut-soaked rice wrapped in banana leaves (nasi Lemak) and other pan-Asian dishes well into the night.
