i stayed at banyan lepas area AC hotel recent trip.
located beside is a shopping complex with mydin supermart and famous nasi kandar restoran which opened till late.
also local coffee shops and hawker center (daytime only) nearby.

if no jam
10 mins to airport
20 mins to penang hill
20 mins to george town
25 mins to gurney

As mentioned by bros, grab is very affordable there. i took grabcar plus (one level above justgrab) and settled with cash for most trips.
travelled with my parents who dont like walking much.

Penang chinese food (Char kuey tiao, kuey tiao soup, wonton mee etc) can mostly be found in jb or even Singapore.
Very similar cooking / prep style.

Some comments to the uncommon ones below :
1. Black thorn durian: I bought at rm 98 / Kg george town area. Expensive but no regrets. I find it better than MSW.
2. Penang Cendol: Visited the popular one in george town. Long queue. I think it is okay in terms of taste. The panda jelly is not as fragrant. I prefer Amoy Chendol here.

Even malaysia boleh chendol is better than that penang one.
