One of the popular and convenient eating places in Gurney Drive is at the Gurney Drive Hawker Center beside the roundabout. This place mostly patronized by tourist and also by the locals offers variety of Penang hawker food. My favorite food at this hawker center is the Ju Hoo Eng Chai in Hokkien or Yau Yue Ong Choy in Cantonese.

The blanched convolvulus (kankung in Malay), pieces of jellyfish and crisscross cuttlefish was served with a combination of Chinese sweet sauce and chili sauce, garnished with coarsely chopped peanuts and toasted sesame seed. A plate of this delicacy cost RM8.


Cockles and other seashells are available in abundance in this stall too. The live cockles are blanched in hot water and best to have them medium cooked. Just dig out the flesh and dip into the chili sauce with chopped garlic…simply yummy.


The Ju Hoo Eng Chai and the cockles are sold at stall No. 90 which is located right at the end of the row, nearer to Gurney Plaza which has huge cuttlefish hanging right in front neatly together with baskets of century egg, cockles and other seashell.
