Coconut Shake @ Padang Kota Lama, Georgetown

Price Range : Budget 
Cuisine : Indian (drinks and snacks) 
Recommended For : Pit-stop while touring Penang 
Catphobia-friendly? : NO! 

This is about the best thing you can get on a balmy day in Penang! The coconut shake (RM2.50) is especially phenomenal when you’ve spent the afternoon trudging under the blazing sun from one attraction to another.

Such a simple recipe, but a brilliant one nonetheless: ice-cold coconut water with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. What a treat for parched throats! 

If you’ve gotten a little hungry from all that sightseeing, the stall next to the coconut shake sells a mean plate of Mee Sotong (RM4)!

There’s ample parking bays on Jalan Tun Syed Sheh Barakbah (the one right by the sea). Make sure you put enough coins in the parking meter though! Getting saman-ed for not doing that is quite the popular here (we learned that the hard way, unfortunately).
