Looking for homemade cupcakes, macarons, sweet delicacies or brunch, La Vanille is where you should be. The cafe is located at Hutton Lane, walking distance from Secawan ‘n’ such and New World Park food court. Look for the turquoise rabbit or shop if you are having trouble looking for the shop. The coziness of the cafe was build up by the owner with a mixture of inspired culture and lifestyle thru her experiences travelling around the world. The delectable macarons from Paris was the main inspiration for her to start up La Vanille. The interior was build up with wooden furnitures and decoratives. Every single corner was specially design with its own taste and feeling. A great place for gatherings and catch up sessions.
It was the day after Valentine’s Day and Chase decided to give me another pleasant surprise by bringing me to a new place, Zest Bar Cafe. We didn’t know it was a hotel until we reach the place. The hotel is called Glow Penang. You can check out for their rates on the net. It is actually situated opposite Red Rock Hotel and strategic location for tourists. It is walking distance to Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow, Abu Siti Lane Curry Mee and Fresh Coconuts, Marshall Burger and our lovely Komtar. Even along the way, you can stop by sisters Char Koay Teow, Bah Kut Teh, New Lane foodies and Lorong Susu Chicken Rice. Thinking about all the local delicacies makes me hungry…><“”. Good news for medium budget peeps, if you are visiting Penang, you may want to put them into your list of hotels to stay.
Okay.. diverted abit.. At that time, they were still serving their Valentine’s Day weekend menu.
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.
