Wellington loves its Malaysian food, with many eateries around the Cuba Quarter competing for the title of best mee goreng and beef rendang. Little Penang is one of the best, as evidenced through the frequent queues (but do jump in line, it moves quickly).

Specialising in fragrant and flavourful Penang Nyonya cuisine, Little Penang proudly make traditional family recipes handed down through generations, plus some handpicked street food. Their menu features a daily special including polarising spicy-sour assam laksa (you’ll either love it or you won’t!) and addictively good nasi lemak with sweet toasted peanuts and salty dried anchovies.

Little Penang can also be found at 44 The Terrace, Wellington.
