Located along the busy Macalister Road, lies the beautiful modern grey color building with striking yellow strips on their window. A unique choice of artistic paintings and a selection of vibrant colours pillows to match their furnitures. Interesting choice of hotel setup to capture the hearts of young couples, budget travellers and food hunters. Glow Penang was newly built in late 2013. Being part of the Zinc, a hospitality management company built to provide comfortable bedding, basic gym access, free WIFI access, self served breakfast to go and great showers and amenities. Strategically being at the heart of the Pearl Orient, win the heart of tourists visiting Penang. On top of that, a fair price for such convenience is definitely something worth bragging about. So, what’s around. One road away from Burma Road, drop by New World Park for their hawker delicacies (Char Koay Teow / Asam Laksa / Curry Mee and etc …), or drop by the famous Abu Siti Lane coconut drink to quench your thirst or the famous Chee Cheung Chuk ( in New Lane which is 200 metres down away). If you are less adventures, Zest Bar & Cafe, take the elevator down to Level 1, to try their thai and western selection in their lunch menu.
Check out what we think about their western food here : -
Secawan ‘n’ such On Hutton is within walking distance from New World Park and just a few shops away from the famous House of Udang Galah situated along Hutton Lane. It primarily serves breakfast foods like pancakes, french toast and eggs benedict, not forgetting several pasta dishes which is almost a must for most cafe spots nowadays. Also, its refrigerated glass display by the cashier keeps all its cakes and desserts chilled and ready to be served in this hot Penang weather. We truly enjoyed the comfortable and cozy cafe setting in Secawan, not forgetting its thoughtful interior that leaves just enough space between tables for private conversations.

BAKED CHEESE CAKE – pairing it with the sweetness of the berries, and with the soft textured cheese melting in every bite
Given every opportunity (& the extra space in our stomachs to gobble down some dessert), we constantly look for new eateries in Penang to try out. Among all the new quaint cafes sprouting out, Sugar Honey is newly opened, next to its neighbour with slightly more recognition, Moustache Houze. Like many other cafes located in Georgetown, it has a similar concept as many others: a touch of edginess on top of some preservation of the old. Apart from the food and drinks, they also sell some crafty items in the shop; feel free to look around because there’s no harm to your wallets doing so!
As we approached the cake display, we were greeted by a friendly lady whom we assumed to be the very owner of Sugar Honey. She kindly offered some recommendation for cake orders and mentioned that their cakes are all homemade and fresh from the oven. Some of her recommendations include their tiramisu, which contains mascarpone with alcohol and hence has a light creamy texture on top of the richness of the coffee liquer. Unfortunately, their tiramisu can only be featured after our second visit to the cafe since it wasn’t part of our order.
What we can offer, however, is a slice of their Chendol Crepe Cake. We love how they have added a touch of localisation to the original mille crepe, instead of the usual mille crepe flavours you find.
Mille crepe has been the talk of the town in Penang heritage cafes lately. Every new cafe is heavily promoting the laid back mood / fun / relax / chillax mood in town after their heritage walk or a relaxing tea area for reunions. From Mugshot Cafe to Moustache House to Twelve Cups and now, Brew Thirty Two Coffee House. What first caught my attention was the mural at the bottom. “Unique” would be the word i use to describe the mural. It can be some what disturbing and disgusting to some but trust me, you will be so tempted to imitate the figure or post with he-she. Browse down to see on your own….
Brew Thirty Two Coffee House, the new hit in town since June’13. They have proper tables prepared for college students (next door) to study / take a break from their long hours of study. They have a more comfy area with sofas for those chillax folks. They even have an ample of space for people to walk around and mingle upstairs. Their concept is simple/ neat and tidy. The place is not too crowded eventhough it is the peak hours when we visited.
Located at Jalan Green Hall. Nearby the Fort Cornwallies/ Dewan Sri Pinang / situated right after Convent Light Street school / Opposite Segi College. It is nearby to the Port Swettenham as well, so for those docking by in Penang for a short 3-4 hours, you can always consider to swing by this cafe to check out/ kill time and relax before boarding.
On their menu is their mille crepe cakes, a crepe is a type of thin pancake usually made from wheat flour/ buckwheat flour origin from French, deriving from the latin crispa meaning curled. Often crepes are served with a variety of fillings, as simple as caramelized sugar. Mille crepe is in a form of many crepe layers. The word mille means a thousand, implying many layers transforming it to a cake.
