8. The Canteen, China House (Penang)
Ask any Penangite for their favourite live music haunts and we’re pretty sure, China House will be in that list. Consisting of three heritage buildings connected by a courtyard, it has become a veritable playground for connoisseurs of the good life with areas to shop, chill, dine at and be entertained. Food consists of a cornucopia of fusion delicacies such as Hokkien Spaghetti Bolognese and the Chef’s Special Bento Box with daily changes of food. Acts currently in the lineup consist of brilliant local talents such as the award-winning singer Jay Sern, known as the Ed Sheeran of Malaysia, and the state’s most prolific singer songwriter, Raggy Singh.
