Chow Thye Road has been busier than usual this year. One of the restaurant that caught my eye as we drove pass was the tastefully designed restaurant Basement 6. A restaurant that serves breakfast (8am – 11am only), lunch starts (12 noon till last call at 3pm) and dinner (6pm to 10pm).
We were sceptical initially, suspecting it to be one of those “nice to see only” cafes mushrooming in Penang. The patio area was designed to give the visitors a garden in the city ambience. We loved the little pots of plants accenting each table. For those who are already imagining the sweltering heat of the outdoors, fear not as the ceiling walls are raised high and abundant fans air the space. Diners can choose the indoor restaurant for the air-conditioned spot. We took the outdoor spot for the breezy wind and natural daylight while munching our breakfast. We had a heartily breakfast and diners can opt for their affordable lunch set / menu if one opt to laze on their bed on the weekends
My Voice Cafe & Studio is located at Krystal Point (previously Elmondo), this being their 2nd branch in Bayan Lepas. Their first branch is located at Bay Avenue (beside Queensbay Mall and Eastin Hotel). Following their expansion, their third branch is opening soon at THE CEO building (opposite Kayu Restaurant) where it will be PORK FREE to cater for my HALAL folks.
The interior of the cafe follows a very clean, white and minimalist layout. There was a grand piano in the store, but we did not have the opportunity to hear any performances. Overall, we were satisfied with the fast service in taking orders and serving of food.
The main highlight of the cafe is their BIG BOWL RAMEN (RM 35 for 2 person, RM49 for 3 person, RM62 for 4 person and RM72 for 5 person)
According to the news, 23th June 2013 (one month ago) is the day where the moon will appear 14% larger than normal and it will be about 222,000 miles from Earth. To be honest the moon on that day did not appear as big as I expected. Anyway, I did grab my camera and tripod to take a shot of the “Supermoon”.
