Heavy instagram users beware! The following shows some food pictures which are overly posted on instagram. For those who have yet to follow us on Instagram or any other penangite, this is a treat for your eyes.
Macallum Connoisseurs is one of the newest brunch/coffee place for all you early-risers, unless you plan to have it for lunch, in that case we don’t judge because we absolutely love brunches! As the name suggests, its located at Gat Lebuh Macallum, just along the Jelutong Expressway. Many would probably have notice this black building with solar panels newly built beside the temple.It’s strategically located in the heart of Penang a few hundred metres away from Komtar, Penang.
Limited tummies equates to short post and few food pictures but hey quality>quantity right? Good bagels are hard to come by in this small island we call home so we took a turkey bacon bagel, slice of cake and COFFEE OF COURSE.
One fine day, while sauntering in Queensbay Mall, Penang, we noticed the opening of Espresso Lab, a 3-month old addition to our usual haunt. Although we have seen them burgeoning in Kuala Lumpur, this is the first outlet in Penang and we coffee lovers got tad too excited than we should be and thus decided to give it a try seeing the warm reception from fellow Penangites.
The cafe was situated in an open space on the first floor of the mall and since it is easily accessible, this is definitely a plus point for those seeking respite after a long day of shopping and in dire need of some delicious liquid caffeine. Service is prompt as we would collect our own coffee after payment, so those looking for a quick wake-me-up will also benefit from some speedy coffee on the go. The layout of the cafe is clean and minimalistic, enhancing our opinion about its no-frills, serious attitude towards coffee. We would say that the coffee definitely deserves mention, though that the cakes are so-so. Nonetheless, this could be a good tea place for those seeking to perk up with a dose of good coffee.
After looking through the no-frills coffee menu (these guys sure are serious about their coffee) and food counter comprising cakes and pies, the sweet tooth among us settled on a cappuccino and a few slices of cake.
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.
