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.
It’s ONE MORE MONTH to CHRISTMAS! Jingle Bells Jingle Bell! As the school bell rings, it marks the beginning of SCHOOL HOLIDAYS! The shopping malls and restaurants are busier than usual. People from near and far flooding Penang just to savour the good hawker foods and visit the heritage cafes. We stumbled on another new spot (not so new to Penangites) to check out. Coffee Affairs served freshly roast specialty coffee beans from different countries and delicious assorted pastries. The cafe offers brewing classes and purchase of brewing equipment.
Penang Camera Museum is known to be one of the main attraction spot in Georgetown, located at Muntri Street where the “Little Girl in Blue” mural drawn by Ernest Zacharevic is at. Launched on 31 Aug 2013 and officiated by the Penang Chief Minister in hope to create a better visualization for children in photography and eye opener for newbies. While walking thru the walls of the exhibition, one can immerse into the evolution of cameras from the eighteen century to the magic of photography in the dark room. Displaying a collection up to 1000 vintage cameras and accessories in the museum. They topped up with a toy camera corner where Disney cartoon meets vintage. What better way to end the tour with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in their cozy setting cafe.
Double Exposure Cafe is located at the last section of the Camera Museum in Penang serving assorted cakes, cupcakes, pies and light breakfast. Double Exposure Cafe served their drinks in camera lens cup which goes very well with the overall theme. Their concept is to have a chilling area after a 30-40 mins tour around the museum with simple wooden setup. Preferably small group for gathering, as they might not be able to cater a table of 8 or more.
After a long day at work, we decided to stay home and dine in for Valentine’s Day. We were too exhausted to prepare the food or jam our ways thru the hussle and bustle of the busy city. We were more focus about filling up our hungry stomach, that we decided to be all economical and call DeliverEat online. (1st ever delivery service in Penang). Quickly, we browse thru their long list of restaurant menu that caters western food. We stumble upon Secret Recipe, a taste that most of us are familiar to and trustworthy. Made our selection, select the location, made payment in a few clicks and soon were waiting for our food already. Delivery service was less than 1 hour! *thumbs up for delivereat + secret recipe + luna creperies*
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.
