    Great introduction to the food and culture of Georgetown.
    It was a great introduction to the food of Georgetown. We did this tour on the day we arrived. Brandon was brilliant. It really set us up for the rest of the holiday. We have since revisited a couple of the places. The chicken samosas we had are probably the best I have ever tasted.

    A must do George Town experience, the food tour, beats all expectations.
    To be honest, wasn’t sue what to expect. Brandon turned up on the dot and the next 3 hours was a thoroughly entertaining and informative morning not only sampling many different ethnic dishes but also learning about Malay life, art, culture and its people. A tremendous way to pass a morning. Great guide and even better food.

    Fantastic lunch food tour !
    A wonderful morning spent touring some interesting Penang foodie establishments we would never have found without our knowledgable guide Brandon. Many of which are hidden behind unpretentious shop fronts to which many would not look twice. An amazing tour, Truly remarkable food!

    Great value rural ride
    Very professional , good kit, a well balanced ramble through stunning rural landscape, small farming and fishing hamlets. Starting early avoided some of the heat at the middle of the day. Should have extended to the mid afternoon tour!

    Delicious, informative night out
    This fabulous tour was like a night out with good friends. Friendly and amazingly informative, Brendan took us to a great variety of eating spots but the highlight for me was fascinating explanations of the culture, architecture and religions. It really was the best walking tour I’ve done anywhere in Asia. The food of course was amazing, and we were given details of the ingredients which really added to the experience. It was so great to get a follow up email the next morning with detailed information about the places and foods we had tried. It also included suggestions ( and location links!!) to even more fabulous eating places around George Town.

    Fantastic experience, highly recommend
    A fantastic way to explore George town and the incredible variety of cuisines it has on offer with such a diverse population. Brandon was an excellent guide, he gave us a taste of the culture and history of the area as well as the food. Every tour is different and ours covered a huge variety - from char koay teow through Malaysian Muslim Indian curries, different Peranakan fusion cuisines and some sweet treats. I would hugely recommend this tour to anyone who likes food!

    An experience to behold!
    The knowledge imparted by the guide we had on the day, which was not the guide originally scheduled but someone called in late…. His knowledge of the history of Malaysia and how that related to Malaysia’s cuisine was invaluable. We ate at some amazing establishments that highlighted this, including some that are Michelin referenced. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the evolution of Malaysian cuisine.

    Fantastic Evening in Georegetown
    An excellent way to sample the food and history of George Town. Our hosts Bee and Jeremy were friendly and very knowledgeable introducing us to some amazing food we may not have found on our own. We also enjoyed following up on many of the recommendations provided after the tour. Would highly recommend this tour!

    Fantastic experience
    We shared a wonderful day in Penang with Jeremy. He's a hugely knowledgeable and passionate guide. We crammed a huge amount of food and history into the tour and came away really feeling like we had an insight into what makes Penang's culinary traditions so rich and varied. The highlight was a visit to Bibik's Kitchen where we met the wonderful owner, Girly. Highly recommended.

    Great night food tour in Penang!
    Do yourself a big foodie favour and make time to do this walking tour around the streets of Penang with Danny. We went at night but day tours are also available. Our personal recommendation would be to do it early in your stay so then you get the chance to go back and revisit places and it also gives you the chance to search out other places that might appeal to you. Really worthwhile and cost friendly. Jennie & Chris

    Best Food Tour We've Ever Been On
    My husband and I are total foodies. We've been on a few dozen food tours across three continents. And this was hands down the best one we've ever experienced. Danny was an absolutely incredible guide, telling us the fascinating history of George Town while taking us through the city. And the food . . . I'm still dreaming about so much of the food. It honestly breaks my heart that I live on the other side of the world, because I've been craving several of the foods we tried since our tour.

    Must do in Penang!
    I had my tour with Danny and he was extremely knowledgeable about George Town - the history, culture and the food! It was really insightful learning about Penang's past and the vast cultural tapestry. Trying food from the different cultures that make up Penang was amazing and I tried foods I wouldn't have chosen otherwise because I wasn't sure what they were. He also gave me great tips on other foods to try and areas to visit. Highly recommended!

    Awesome way to experience the city
    The lunch hop with Danny was such an amazing way to see the city of Georgetown, experience all of the wonderful local food and learn about the rich heritage of Penang. Danny was very knowledgeable, and felt more like a friend than a tour guide. Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Penang!

    Well worth it!
    My husband and I had a great lunch tour with Danny. He is such an excellent guide and really knowledgeable about Penang. We love getting to know cities that we travel to through their food, and this tour definitely did that for us. We visiting quite a few places that we would’ve never found on our own or known what to order. We would highly recommend doing this tour when visiting Penang!

    Food, culture, history served on an exceptional tour
    This is our third trip to Penang and we thought we knew a bit about the world renowned street food in Penang, but decided to take the 3-Hour Heritage on a Plate Tour anyway. Our guide, Jeremy, soon made us realise how little we actually knew. Not only does Jeremy live and breathe food, his knowledge of the origins, the history of the area and his long term experience in Penang was encyclopaedic. I have a few dietary restrictions and Jeremy had gone out of his way to ensure that this was all covered in the tour which made for a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable day. There were so many places, flavours and locations that we could not possibly have remembered all of them. This is were the cream on the cake came in. The next day, Jeremy sent us a comprehensive list of all of the place we visited, the food we sampled and recommendations of many others to try in the future. Highly recommended, thank Jeremy from Bevan and Fiona.

Booked this food tour as part of a 2 week South East Asia cruise. I was keen to do something different and Danny had great reviews..... yet the excursion still exceeded our expectations,

Danny is so knowledgeable, friendly, professional and easy to chat to. Quite incredible how much we learnt about the history of Penang, life as a Penangite, the hidden meaning of Penang,s street art and their delicious food!

We ate in places that as cautious UK travellers we would not have considered. What an utterly awesome experience this became, eating and drinking like a local! This taught use so much that a few days later in Singapore we ate at a similar style restaurant with real confidence.

Brilliant experience - thanks Danny!

Just go on and book this tour!! It really is Heritage on a plate, you get to know George town and you get to taste George town :). Danny was an excellent guide, very attentive! If I wasn't leaving Penang I would have gone for a second round ;). Eating your way through a city is the best way to get to know it in my opinion, just make sure you are hungry :)

Thank you Jeremy for sharing your wealth of knowledge of the local area and the many cuisines that are available in Georgetown.
We thoroughly enjoyed tasting the different foods you selected for us.
The final tasting of the Nyonya food was so memorable we are returning to the restaurant tonight to enjoy more of it.
Thank you

We met Danny in the early evening and there was a total of 6 people on the tour. We went to try 5 different shops, and Danny also told us a lit if the local history that isnt in the guide books or internet.
Definitely would recommend and will do it again

Do yourself a favor and book this tour while you can. Jeremy is a wealth of information on the history of Georgetown and Penang and of course on the food that’s available throughout the city. We loved that we got to try foods from different cultural backgrounds, and they were all good. Our favorites were the samosas ( we went back the next day to get some more) and the food at Bibik’s restaurant, which was the last stop at the tour. Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Danny's tour of Georgetown is one of the highlights of our whole vacation in Malaysia. He is a charasmatic and thoughtful host, who took care of us and catered the tour to suit our preferences. The food was outstanding, but what makes this tour special is Danny's expertise on the history of Georgetown and his passion for conserving it. An absolute must-do when visiting Penang. Thank you, Danny!

George Town may be 70000 degrees but Danny from Heritage on a Plate made my dad and I feel super cool and brave by showing us around local haunts and feeding us some incredible food. We tried to pace ourselves but even though I was wearing my Eating Dress (TM) and even though we walked plenty with lots of incredible historical insight, I was waddling by the end of it, bested by an incredible Duck Noodle Soup.

This tour is how every foodie dreams of spending an evening, like stepping into those Netflix food travel shows we all drool over from the sofa.

Will 💯 be coming back again with my husband and friends the next time I’m in Penang.

Our host Jeremy was not only informative, interesting and enthusiastic about Penang's culinary delights but also its diverse history and melting pot of cultures. We discovered the hidden food stalls and experienced a fantastic variety of food on offer. Walking the streets and learning about how Penang was settled was a amazing. Our last stop for the night was a Michelin restaurant and was an amazing way to cap off what was one of the best food tours ever.
Fully recommend you try it.
Thanks again Jeremy, from David and Genine
