Hopping from one cafe to another had became a trend in Penang. Not sure which to choose? You would probably want to add Black Kettle to your list. Located along Beach Street, parallel to Chulia Street serving a variety of English style bread loaves and a list of brunch items to choose for dine in. Highly recommended is their freshly baked croissants and bread loaves. We are lucky to be able to catch the head chef in action carrying tray after tray of freshly made loaves hot out of the oven. Tempting us to grab a loaf of their poppy seed flavour home with us.
Unlike other cafes, Black Kettle is spacious and elegantly design. The interior is design different in every section, there is a corner with greens and natural sunlight and the cozy couch with white arch design. The bakery and order counter is located at the front of shop, where the customers are given an ample of space to have their on private conversation comfortably.
As part of the Georgetown heritage trails, Lebuh Muntri is well known for its art mural, “The little girl in blue”. Located within walking distance to the Unesco Heritage Trail and the famous Chulia Street and Love Lane, Plates is situated at the heart of Georgetown, just opposite the Camera Museum.
Plates started their operation on March 2015, and has been serving brunch to a steady stream of customers from 10am to 3pm. From 5pm-12am, they also serve other snacks on top of their extensive brunch menu.
Despite its official opening quite some time back, Gurney Paragon is still relatively empty and is still filling up with new and exciting stores to offer you a myriad of food, shopping and entertainment. From time to time, we will travel the distance just to explore new eateries in the mall, one of its newest addition being Bear Paw.
With a total of 11 outlets in Klang Valley and Johor Bahru, Bear Paw is not an unfamiliar sight for those of you who frequent there. Recently launched its very first outlet in Penang, Bear Paw is a Taiwanese food chain set to redefine chinese paus, or rather ‘burgers’. It is located at the basement of Gurney Paragon, rather close by Sam’s Grocer, right next to Ban Heang.
Remember how the burger bakars from your neighbourhood stall are messy and calorie-laden? Bear Paw is more diet-friendly with its signature bear-paw shaped buns which are steamed instead of grilled with slabs of planta on it.
We love how you get to pick your own buns out of 4 very different choices: Milk, Brown Sugar, Whole Wheat Pumpkin. Each bun comes with a different colour and flavour profile. We were thinking of some Nicki Minaj buns and settled for Signature Bear Set with Brown Sugar buns. You can choose your own sauces from 5 different types too! (Honey Mustard, Teriyaki, Chilli, Thousand Island and Tartar)
Miam Miam Restaurant located at one of the most strategic places in Gurney Paragon, beside Ben’s and nearby Pacific Coffee. This french japanese restaurant is known for their famous French Toast served in a unique metal-like bowl with whipped cream and maple syrup to go together. Our wait didn’t go in vain, eventhough it was 11am in the morning, very little guests, it still took about 20-30 mins for them to served this dish. Despite the price and wait time, the food definitely deserve a thumbs up. The menu choices are pretty limited too, but easy to read. If you can’t imagine the outcome, the picture says it all. Another MUST TRY in their list is the souffle. It is also in our to try list, when we have the opportunity to come back.
