A great Indian meal and nice cab driver

On our last night in Penang we were looking for a restaurant where we could get a nice Indian meal and a beer or three. Unfortunately Muslim restaurants don’t serve or allow beer. (How silly can you be)

So we wandered around (as Wombats do) and a cab pulled up beside us, I immediately said “No thanks” and the guy replied “Don’t you remember me?”. It was Mike the very obliging neat taxi driver who had taken us to MacDonald s that morning, shown me where to get my hair cut and then picked us up from the barbers and taken us to the Penang Hill funicular railway. I told him we were looking for a good restaurant and he said “Hop in.. no charge” and took us to the restaurant in the video below. The food was superb and we had a great meal and a beer or three, which incidentally the restaurant guys had to run up the street to buy as they never had a liquor license. 🙂

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
