Penang is famous for its non-stop street food and night markets, so I was excited to discover a wildly wonderful food pavilion next to Cheong Fatt Tze, The Blue Mansion (within the protected UNESCO zone) while I was staying there. Red Garden Food Paradise is a covered food court and open nightly, with live music and even a Thai-styled ladyboy show by the lovely Penang-based Selena. I ate everything from fried oysters and the BEST spicy clams to crêpes and dim sum. OH, and they serve wine, which is something I haven’t seen out at a night market yet in Malaysia. The live entertainment was a festive and peppy mix of English, Malay, and Chinese songs that kept everyone happy. Check it out:
