Gurney Drive is a famous food location in George Town, Penang, formerly known as North Beach, and named after Sir Henry Gurney. The eponymous restaurant brings its patrons to the heart and soul of Penang. Access its famous spread of wok-hei hawker food at a very reasonable price in the comfort of your own city.
Dishes to note include the Gurney Drive Signature Dish - the Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle ($7.95), developed by their in-house chef using a special prawn-based soup, traditional yellow noodle, big prawns, pork ribs, fish cakes, bean sprouts and kang kong.
Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle
Penang Lor Bak
Patrons can choose to tag team and tackle meatier chef recommendations like the Premium Grilled Seafood Platter for 2 ($25.95) which features an assemblage of grilled sea favourites, or the Premium Crab Meat Fried Keow Teow ($12.65), a royal take on this traditional fried flat rice noodle topped with fresh crab meat.
Gong Bao Mantis Prawn
Specialty house side dishes, such as the Penang Rojak ($5.65) and Gong Bao Mantis Prawn ($7.65) work to flavourfully sharpen dull incisors while the Gurney Stuffed Beancurd ($4.65) and Belacan Chicken Wing ($5.95) are recommended peace offerings to rowdy tykes.
King of Cendol
Of course, a huge variety of hot and cold beverages is a sure fire complement to your meal with Signature Drinks such as the Ampla Juice (Small: $3.95, Regular: $4.55) that is rich in Vitamin C and highly recommended by their customers. Or delve deeper into the Penang experience with perennial favourites Penang Cendol ($3.95) and the King of Ice Kacang ($6.95), so named to commemorate the King of Fruits itself, the durian.
Unlike dining on the streets of yesteryear however, patrons can dine in comfort and relaxation while enjoying great food, service and environment in the modern restaurant that transports diners, albeit temporarily, to the land of its food origins.
The menu of authentically spicy dishes and flavourful preparations makes Gurney Drive an ideal place to add a stamp to your tongue’s passport. Similar to its namesake in Penang, this restaurant serves authentic hawker food that is borne from a chef who was a native there. Dressed up in a comfortable, elegant design and warm hospitality, Gurney Drive gives of a vibe reminiscent of a Malaysian kitchen sans the stifling heat of eating outdoors.
Gurney Drive has been featured by many newspapers and magazines including The Sunday Times, TODAY, 8 Days and IS Magazine.
"Spending $6 to $8 a meal in the city area at an air-conditioned place is quite affordable, especially when the food reminds you of Penang. It's a small price to pay for tasty Malaysian food without leaving Singapore."

"The Char Kway Teow ($8.65) was one of the most fragrant we've tried and the texture of the kway teow was perfect - our only qualm was that the chef could have used more pork lard. Other than that, staples like Hokkien mee ($7.95), with its broth broiled for 3 hours using prawn heads, was done exactly as they do it back in Penang, and the homemade chilli that accompanies the dish gave it an extra oomph."

"We like how the Char Kway Tiao ($8.65) at this eatery is delicious without being too greasy, and more savoury than sweet. The noodles - imported from Penang - are thin and smooth, fried with lard, prawns, squid and a generous dash of eggs. Superb with a cup of tangy, vitamin-rich Ampla juice ($3.95)."
