Also known locally as Pulau Pinang, Penang is one of the states of Malaysia. It is located on the West coast of West Malaysia, next to the state of Kedah.

The state of Penang consists of Penang island and the mainland area of Butterworth (and surrounding areas). The main town in Penang is Georgetown. Penang island is connected to the mainland by the Penang Bridge.

With great, cheap food and nice beaches, Penang island has heaps of tourist traps, hotels and beach resorts. Also one of the few places in Malaysia where the Chinese are the majority ethnic group.

Penang is the name of a national high quality restaurant chain, with one location in Philadelphia specializing in Malaysian food. The restaurant is located at 117 N. 10th St.

Penang has received rave reviews from various media sources and has excellent food and quick service.

Having eaten there a number of times, I highly recommend this place for both visitors and residents of Philadelphia.
