Lebuh Pasar is the heart of George Town’s Little India. It intersects Lebuh Penang (aka Penang Street). A distinct festive air hangs in these two streets as Bollywood music blares from VCD stores and five-foot ways are choked with mannequins draped in sarees and piles of cook-ware made of clay and aluminum. Hawkers do a roaring business selling all kinds of Indian fare.
Along Lebuh Pasar, you can get all the spices you need for Indian recipes. Those with a sweet tooth should pop over to Thulasiraman which offers traditional sweets and savoury items such as mysorpak, laddu, raisin candy, omappodi, onion pakora and palgova.
Lebuh Penang is noted for its banana leaf restaurants, and is also home to an ayurvedic acupuncture centre and a Hindu astrologer.
