Of all our cafe expeditions and travels for food, Penang still firmly holds the #1 spot for us. Certain local fares like Asam Laksa may take an acquired taste to appreciate them, but out of all our efforts to bring our foreign friends for Cuti-cuti Penang, most of them enjoyed food here. With all the RM3 hokkien mee and wanton mee around, it is crucial to stay competitive in terms of pricing.
Yella Fork Cafe recently opened at Jalan Chow Thye, along with some new eateries which we featured previously (Basement Six). Don’t worry we will not bore you with yet another cafe that serves regular eggs ben or breakfast platters. It is a cafe that serves fusion-Australian dishes to offer you a little something that is slightly different from the usual brunches which most cafes are already serving anyway. Another catch which appeals to our thrifty Penangite side being the pricing of the dishes set on the lower end, which is bound to attract a good number of patrons looking for affordable good food.
Pie Harbour, another new breakfast hangout spot in Queensbay. In their menu, offering a different variety of fresh pies, sandwiches and snacks. And their drinks menu, coffee and juices are served together with your meal. Both Pie Harbour outlets (Queensbay and Gurney Paragon) also provide catering for occasions like birthday parties/ wedding or business lunch. With a simply motto, NO fussy meal and offers the best of fast food.
We enjoyed our brunch here, the portion is not too huge for both the sandwich and pies. Also, we will definitely go again for the huge gigantic cup of coffee. Honestly, IMO, the set (pie and coffee)/ (sandwich and lemon tea) is pretty pricey. They have their breakfast meal promotion on going, and it is RM5++ for the pie + coffee. BUT only selected pies and sandwiches.
Twas a fruitful weekend! As many of you know, we usually spend our weekends eating, blogging and venturing around places. This week we did something extra- we helped my brother with some wedding banquet research. *excited* yay!!! We went to GHotel, Gurney Hotel for the bridal shows and stop by a few hotels to scour the best prices.
Before the long day, though, we needed to fill up our hungry tummies.
Most of the shops in Paragon don’t serve breakfast, so we came upon Pacific Coffee Company. We have to admit, we never knew they serve breakfast- so chancing upon their breakfast sets definitely serves as a pleasant surprise! To add on, the portions are also reasonable and filling too!
